FORDE FOCUSED ON SEASIDERS. thumbnailLorcan Forde after netting for Warrenpoint against Dungannon on Saturday..

LORCAN Forde, arguably Warrenpoint Town's most valued asset, is unsure he'll be playing for the Seasiders next season.

Though the 18-year-old, with a fine tally of seven goals for the Point this season and speaking exclusively to the Democrat after the Dungannon game, says he would love to continue his career with the Town.

The man termed the Wee Magician by his manager Stephen McDonnell, said: "I'm not sure myself what's going to happen next year. I might be going across the water to university - in Liverpool maybe. And I'm not sure what options will be available over there. But if I'm not going over the water I will be staying with Warrenpoint.

I'm not one hundred per cent sure but obviously I'd love to keep playing for Warrenpoint."

When it was put to Lorcan that quite a few Irish League clubs were interested in signing him, he answered truthfully: "It's good to have options."

On his seven-goal tally the 18-year-old said: "I'm happy with that but hopefully I can get a few more before the end of the season." And with Carrick at home on Saturday in mind, he said: "It's a chance to get another one or two goals and another three points.

"It was a disappointing result today but that's the way it goes sometimes. I think we were a bit lackadaisical."

Lorcan has scored in his last two games and Warrenpoint fans would just love to see him make that a hat-trick against Carrick on Saturday as they were team that relegated the Town two seasons ago. So hopefully Saturday will be payback time.

Incidentally there is speculation about at least three other players leaving the Seaside club. The word is that long-serving defender Jordan Dane will be leaving the country to make a new life for himself while it looks as though Marty Murray and Conor McMenamin, who both haven't played or turned up for the Point in the past three or four games, will be seeking fresh pastures.
