Musselburgh Athletic striker Jordyn Sheerin has made some impression since joining the Olivebank club in the summer from Edinburgh amateur side Heriot Vale.

The former East Fife and East Stirling youngster had scored four goals in Musselburgh’s two opening Super League matches before flying off to the Canary Islands for a two week holiday.

Musselburgh have lost their last two games while Sheerin has been away – losing to Sauchie and Lochee United last weekend. Such has been his impact at his new club, that manager David McGlynn can’t wait to have him back for tomorrow’s trip to Camelon.

“After the last two weeks we’ve had it’s great to have Jordyn back,” said McGylnn.

“We played Sauchie and created five or six chances, and then last Saturday we must’ve created enough chances to win three games. He is lethal in front of goals and he’s a big asset. If we had him on Saturday we’d be sitting on nine points – if he had played we would’ve won about 8-0.”

Sheerin returned on Tuesday night when Musselburgh took on League Two Berwick Rangers in a friendly – the striker scoring with his first touch just minutes into the match which Berwick went on to win 3-1.

The 25 year-old can’t wait to return to competitive action tomorrow though and hopes to fire his side back on the victory trail.

“I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things, if selected,” he said.

“I feel it’s important for us that we get back to winning ways tomorrow and I’d obviously love to get on the scoresheet, but if it doesn’t happen as long as we play well as a team and get a result I’ll be delighted.

“I’ve loved my time here so far. I’ve been made to feel welcome from the start and we have a great bunch of guys here.”

Sheerin has certainly proven to be a shrewd investment by boss McGylnn so far, who’ll be hoping his new striker can continue his goal streak against Camelon.

Musselburgh also welcome back midfield duo Michael Hunter and Jed Davie tomorrow – a welcome boost after McGlynn was only able to name 12 outfield players last weekend.
