CENTURIAN MITCH DETERMINED TO KEEP THE GOALS FLOWING FOR COVE RANGERS

01/11/2018

 

 

MITCH Megginson says he's proud to have notched up a century of goals in just over two years starring up front for Cove Rangers.
The 26-year-old former Aberdeen striker reached the 100 mark in the recent 2-1 Scottish Cup defeat to Auchinleck Talbot down in Ayrshire.
He then began cutting into what he hopes could end up being a second century for Cove with a double in the 5-0 victory over Deveronvale at Balmoral Stadium in the Breedon Highland League.
Mitch said: "I'm delighted and proud to have gone past the 100 goal mark in such a short time with the club.
"It's not something I even thought about when I signed for Cove.
"Having league title and cup winners' medals is what matters the most to me.
"But it's also nice to have reached the sort of milestone every striker hopes to get to.
"Hopefully I can keep banging them in and you never know, I might be lucky to get to the 200 mark as well.
"I've still got two years left in my contract after this season - and could well end up being here beyond that because I love playing for Cove.
"This is the longest I've been at one club, apart from when I started out as a youth player with Aberdeen.
"It's good to feel wanted at a club and to see you are giving something back.
"I would like to think there's a good few more years, and goals, left in me."
Mitch accepts it will be harder to keep the goals coming in their next league match, away to Wick on Saturday.
Cove were helped in their win over Vale because their keeper, Errol Watson, was sent off in the 35th minute, for a foul on Mitch.
The Cove hitman said: "We were always confident we would eventually beat Vale, even if their keeper hadn't been sent off.
"We had a lot of the ball and we're sure we would eventually get the break we needed to turn that possession into goals.
"There is no doubt the keeper going off made it easier, though.
"It will be totally different up at Wick, they are capable of beating anyone in this league, especially at their place.
"We only drew 1-1 with them down here last season and were a bit fortunate to avoid losing.
"Wick have kept up the good work this season and recorded some impressive results.
"They beat Inverurie Locos 6-2, which was no mean feat because they are a really good side too.
"We know it's a very dangerous fixture for us and that we will need to be at our very best if we want to take anything from the 90 minutes."
