NEW Morton signing Peter Grant says that he’s joined the club to ‘put the feel good factor back in his game’ after a frustrating year down south.

The towering central defender checked in at Cappielow yesterday and became David Hopkin’s seventh summer signing since taking over at the Ton, penning a one-year deal.

Grant arrives with a proven Championship pedigree having played nearly 100 games for Falkirk before moving down south to play in League One and League Two at the start of last season.

He spent time at both Plymouth Argyle and Carlisle United last term but failed to hold down a regular starting berth for either side.

He told the Tele: “I’m delighted to be here and I’m really looking forward to get back playing regularly again.

“It was good to get my first training session in with the boys this morning and to have a look around, I’m just looking forward to just getting started and hopefully will have a really successful season here.

“I obviously didn’t play as much football as I wanted last year. I was feeling great, but it was getting to the stage where no matter how well you were playing you weren’t getting a run of games but that’s in the past now.

“My focus is just to be back playing, get performing consistently and enjoy my football day to day again.

“I want to be coming away from most Saturdays with that feel good factor again - and most importantly good results.

“I spoke with the manager in the middle of last week and straight from the first phone call it was good to hear from someone who had belief in me as a player.

“He made it clear from the word go how he wanted to play and what he wanted from the team, explained the individual roles and what he expected from me. It was a no-brainer to come and play at Cappielow after that. I’m looking to get that run of games and feature for the team week in, week out.

“Hopefully I can add something to a side that already has a good quality group of players here.
I’m really looking forward to getting going - starting with St Johnstone.”

Grant hopes that he can use all his experience from the division to help Morton push on.

He added “It’s good to be back in the Championship, my main aim is to get into the team and to say there for as long as possible.

“Hopefully I can help the team as much as I can and if we can get the results to go with it then I’ll be very happy.

“I know the league really well. I know a lot of people are saying that it’s wide open but we know who the bigger teams are and it’s all about having that inner self-belief, knowing our capabilities and producing the results on a Saturday.”
