Rohan Ferguson and Rory Currie in conversation with Jamie Megarry
Posted : 8th June 2020
A week ago Linfield FC announced that our 2 Scottish players Rohan Ferguson and Rory Currie had reached the end of their loan deals with Linfield and returned to Scotland.
Both players shared their thoughts on their time in Belfast with Jamie Megarry of official Linfield media.
“My time in Belfast was incredible. I met so many amazing people, some who I’ll speak to for the rest of my life. It’s just the wee simple things that make it special, like people in shops or people you met just being so friendly. I don’t think I could say a bad word about Belfast or anyone I met during my time there. I’ve recommended to all my mates to get over to see Belfast, it’s a great city which I’ll miss greatly; especially Bastien Hery and Matthew Clarke, I’ll speak to those boys for the rest of my life and I’ll miss them for sure. Both of them were scared of the hoover, though – I won’t miss that, haha!
“The Linfield fans were great with me from the day I arrived there. Maybe there were a few question marks at first because I was a young goalkeeper and having had Roy Carroll in nets for your club – he’s someone who’s irreplaceable and no-one can come close. I just went and did what I could and overall, I thought I had a very good season and a lot of the fans made me aware of that which I’m very grateful for.
“The European campaign was unbelievable. I went and saw three different countries and played against two very good teams and one top team. It helped me settle in with the boys massively as well. After we got back to the league campaign I felt like I had been there for six months. The European experiences were my best memories in football so far, it was surreal stuff and I’m still gutted to this day that we fell at the last hurdle.
“I knew a bit about Linfield before I joined but not too much. Linfield is a great club and I’ll cherish my time there for the rest of my life. It’s a proper family club and I’ll miss everyone involved greatly – some of the best people I’ve ever met from players to staff. Linfield is a very successful club and everyone outside of the club seems to raise their game against Linfield. I quickly learned that when I was over and that adds more pressure to every game.
“I am not entirely sure what the future holds for me. Obviously, with everything up in the air, it’ll be hard for a lot of players to get a contract in these uncertain times. I have nothing secure yet but I’m hoping to go back into full-time football, as I still have a lot to give.
“I’ll always keep an eye on Linfield’s progress and will certainly keep in touch with most boys as well. Whenever I get a chance, I’ll be over to see the troops for sure. I can’t thank everyone enough for making my time at Linfield special.”
“I loved my time being a Linfield player. The City of Belfast was great and filled with some of the friendliest people I have ever met. I couldn’t have asked for a better changing room from the staff to the players. It’s just a pity our time got cut short and we couldn’t have played the season out to hopefully have won the title. I thank everyone at the Club, and wish them every success for the future.”
