Queensland’s player pathway looks to have unearthed another future star with State Team prospect Christopher Morseray recognised for standout performances at the FFA National Youth Championships.
Morseray, pictured above with FFA Technical Director Eric Abrams, was named the U14 Player of the Championships at last week’s annual elite youth tournament.
The Brisbane City youngster, who was born in Sierra Leone, got on the scoresheet in the 4-2 win over Northern NSW Metro as his side recorded an equal third-highest eight points.
Morseray has also been prolific at club level, notching over 30 goals in successive PlayStation® 4 National Premier Leagues junior seasons.
U14 Metro coach Paul Wilton commended the young talent for taking his opportunity in front of the likes of Abrams and FFA technical staff.
“He did well in the eyes of the selectors and that’s what counts down there. You’ve got to impress those guys,” Wilton said.
“Chris, the same as every player in our team, challenged himself during the week and he applied himself in every game the best he could.
“That’s what we ask them all to do – to give it their best, try to take on what we taught them and apply it in games, which is the hard part sometimes when there is so much pressure on the shoulders.”
Wilton also praised his young squad’s attitude and approach to the week-long tournament in Coffs Harbour.
“I’ve never had any problems with any of the Queensland boys,” he said.
“They’re always good lads to coach at a tournament like this. There’s never any trouble, they all know why they’re there.”
