Chris Humphrey grew up watching storied FA Cup runs in England, and the flying winger admits he is keen to create some cup history of his own.
The Steelmen are already in the semi-final of the Co-operative Insurance Cup and will face Rangers later this month, and Humphrey believes ‘Well can replicate that achievement in the Scottish Cup.
“Cup’s are a massive thing for this club, and we are lucky enough to be in the Semi-Finals of one cup and facing Dundee this weekend in the other,” the 21-year old said. “It would be nice to get equally far in this cup and create some good memories for the players and fans.
“I used to watch all the Cup Finals down south when I was growing up and it is a special occasion. As a player you want to be on the winning side of cup matches and you want to become a hero.
“Everybody wants to play in this game, have a good run, and be remembered at this football club.
“We need to get a win after the recent run, and hopefully the new manager – and everyone trying to impress him – will mean that we can get a victory on the board.
The former Shrewsbury Town winger also took time to praise the new boss Stuart McCall in front of the assembled press at Fir Park.
McCall has been in charge of the club for a full week now and Humphrey, along with the rest of the squad, is already excited about the ideas and methods being implemented by the former Bradford City manager.
“Training so far has been excellent with the gaffer. He has made it really enjoyable for all the lads and we are all desperate to come in and train and work hard,” Humphrey praised.
“It’s clear from his sessions so far – and the type of player he was – that he wants people tight and people closing down and working hard. He says that as long as people do their best then he will be happy with us.”
“I can’t wait to do more proper sessions with the new manager – and he’s already said that if any of the boys want to do extra sessions then he will take them so that’s brilliant because there are a lot of lads that like to do extra work.”
