Moorhouse: I Loved It At Coventry

Last updated : 31 July 2017 By CNS Sport/AO

Greg Moorhouse has said that he loved his time at Coventry City.

The striker was on trial during pre-season, playing and scoring in the win at Sutton United and playing against Valenciennes and Barnsley.

City were keen to sign Moorhouse but a deal with Moorhouse's club Glenavon fell through and now he has signed for Sligo Rovers.

Speaking about his time at City, Moorhouse told Sligo Rovers club website: "I loved it. I went over there for two weeks of pre-season with the option of a third week in Spain if they liked me.

"The two weeks went well, then the trip to Spain went well and in the fourth week it came about that Coventry wanted to offer me a contract. They told me to head home and get more stuff and say goodbye to my family. 
"They tried to get in touch with Glenavon to sort out a deal and that fell through. It did alert a lot of clubs then. I really enjoyed it over there. I enjoyed training two times a day and going to the gym and the constant environment of football time football. I think I already learned a lot from the four weeks with Coventry."
Moorhouse is expected to be in Sligo's squad for their home game this weekend against St Patricks Athletic and said that he was there to help Sligo move up the table.
"I'm really excited," Moorhouse said. "Hopefully we can start pushing up the table. That's why I'm here 
"It was a good season with Glenavon last year. I started off well. I had a little injury as I fractured my metertasal. I came back straight into the team and scored a lot of goals.
"The season didn't end too well as we missed out on Europe but I still consider it a good season looking back on it all.
"Hopefully I can come in and score some goals. I had a look at it, I was here on Saturday night for the Dundalk game. The signs were good. The result was deserved. There is a lot of fresh faces coming in and we can pull together and get some results."
