Sunderland boss Phil Parkinson has said that summer signing Morgan Feeney ‘has more to come’ after a solid performance in the 8-1 win over Aston Villa’s under-21 side in the EFL Trophy.
The 21-year-old defender spent time on loan with Tranmere during the 2019/20 season, whilst also making 12 appearances for Everton’s under-23 side in Premier League 2.
Arriving at the Stadium of Light, Feeney started the EFL Trophy fixture against Villa’s youngsters last night and Parkinson has now discussed what the future could hold for the defender.
“Morgan will be pleased with his contribution,” Parkinson is quoted as saying by Sunderland Echo.
“It’s always good to get a goal from centre-halves. He’s a good lad Morgan, he’s mature in the way he plays. I’m pleased with him and there’s more to come from him.”
The victory over Villa saw Charlie Wyke (2), Josh Scowen, Max Power, Danny Graham, George Dobson, Aiden O’Brien and Feeney himself all find the back of the net.
Sunderland will now prepare to face Bristol Rovers in the opening League One fixture on Saturday buoyed by their midweek romp over the Premier League club’s under-21 side.
Some brief but good comments from Parkinson on Feeney’s impact. The win over Villa was a superb one for Sunderland with a number of players showing some timely form ahead of the League One kick-off.
The opening game on Saturday will be interesting to see and you would expect the competition to somewhat fiercer from Bristol Rovers’ first team.
