MORTON'S Cameron Salkeld believes he has a point to prove after sealing a one-year contract extension at Cappielow.

The 21-year-old English attacker joined the club last summer from Gateshead and believes that Ton fans are still to see the best of him.

He hopes he can use his new deal as a platform to take his game to a new level, after injury curtailed his progress last term.

Salkeld admits he was left frustrated with his overall contribution and says he is determined to use that as fuel to push himself on and make more of an impact.

He told the Tele: “I’m delighted to have signed my new deal, it’s something that I’ve been hoping to get over the line.

“I’ve got a massive point to prove, more to myself than anything.

"I feel a bit angry with how everything panned out because I’d not played since December because of injury - and then the coronavirus stopped everything.

“This first year has been a bit of a settling-in period for me.

"I was three and a half hours away from home, living in a new environment by myself and I didn’t really know anyone so I’ve had to grow up a lot in that time.

“There’s definitely room for improvement.

"I don’t think that the club have seen anywhere near the best of what I can do compared to how I was at Gateshead, where I was scoring goals.

"I wasn’t really able to do that this year.

“It’s been tough - it was a big adjustment for me with new opponents, new atmospheres and a different style of play.

"Now I know what’s ahead of me and what to expect, so hopefully I can kick on next season.

“I’ve been working hard during the lockdown to better myself because the games are only going to get more and more physical next season."

Salkeld praised his manager David Hopkin for helping with his development and says he is determined to repay the faith that he has shown in him.

He said: "I learned a lot last season under the gaffer – but I’ve still got a lot of work to do.

"I’m chomping at the bit to get back at it now, I cannot wait."

The Geordie is adamant that he can become Hopkin’s go-to man and fill the void left by departing striker Bob McHugh.

He told the Tele: “It’s really sad to see Bob go.

"I got on with him really well but there’s obviously a position up for grabs now - and hopefully I can prove to the gaffer that I’m the right man for the job.

“The position is there and I want to take it but we’ve got plenty of options up front, people who want to prove themselves to the gaffer.

“There’s eleven places on the pitch that are all up for grabs and I’ll play anywhere for the team."
