Pre-Wycombe | Morgan Feeney

11 April 2024

Morgan Feeney chatted to the media ahead of our League One clash against Wycombe.

Town take on Matt Bloomfield's side at the Croud Meadow on Saturday aiming to pick up what would be a crucial three points.

Feeney has been a key figure for Salop this year with the defender performing well at both centre-back and right-back.

Speaking to the assembled media, the Liverpudlian discussed this weekend's game and reflected on his first season playing for and living in Shrewsbury.

On his first season as a Town player:

“It's been great. I’m really enjoying myself here. At the minute we are all focused on the task at hand. 

“But me personally, I'm really enjoying it.

"Shropshire as a whole – the people are lovely. The staff here and the players have welcomed me. It’s been brilliant.  

“Hopefully next season will be an even better one for us as a collective and for me personally as well. I want to kick on. 

“I’ve moved down here. The town centre I go into quite a lot – there are lots of cafes, it’s a lovely little place. 

“I go on walks. I know I sound old and boring but I enjoy it. 

“The quarry is a great, little, walk. There is a nice little coffee stand at the bottom. 

“That’s a perfect one on my day off, especially when the sun is shining – not so much when it’s raining. 

“It helps when you are happy off the field, it’s nice to come to a place of work where you really enjoy it, where you want to learn and where you want to do your best. 

“This place is it for me which I’m really happy about.” 

On the table as things stand:

“It’s hard not to look at times but I don’t think any of us get caught up in it. 

“It’s in our hands to put things right. 

“As long as we know we can win the games in front of us – it's up to us to compete and not worry about other teams. 

“The aim, for us, is to get as many points as we can. 

“We are all aware 50 points gets you safe in most seasons, but stranger things have happened. 

“For us, it’s about winning as many games as possible and getting as many points as possible.” 

On Cheltenham and Port Vale playing mid-week: 

“I watched a little bit of the Cheltenham game on Tuesday.  

“It was a good win for my old club Carlisle. The result obviously helped us out. I was delighted with that one. 

“All the results seemed to go in our favour which is a bonus but, again, we are just focused on ourselves. 

“I don’t get caught up in looking at what’s going on elsewhere too much. I think you can get too focused on stuff that isn’t in your control. 

“I look at the half-time score and the full-time score. But you can’t get too caught up in what’s going on elsewhere – you have to stay focused on what you can do.” 

On the four games left: 

“There are still a lot of games to go. I think most players get a bit leggy towards the end of the season. 

“But this is the time where - mentally - you need to pull yourself through. 

“That is what we will do. We have had a good week of training so hopefully we can go into the game Saturday with loads of energy and try and get the job done.”
