Summer loan signing Glenn Murray has been speaking about his goalscoring re-debut for the club in the friendly against Crawley Town.

Coming in from Bournemouth on a season long loan the other week, Murray has been making himself at home at the club once more following his departure for Crystal Palace a few season’s ago, and getting his first run out under manager Chris Hughton, Murray did score our third in the four nil victory over Crawley at the weekend.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, Murray admitted he was pleased to find the net so quickly but he did feel he should’ve had more on the day.

‘It was nice to get on the scoresheet so early. I felt as though I should`ve had the second, I don`t know if was touch or go whether I was offside or not, but it was a nice start. It was a good turnout from the fans for the first pre-season game too, and I am sure it will only get busier from here onwards.’

Coming back in the other week, he went on to say that he quickly felt at home once more and the timing with the Canary Island training camp certainly helped him get used to new faces.

‘Tenerife was brilliant. I got to spend four days with the boys all together. It was good to meet all the different characters in the squad. I watched them from a far last year and saw some brilliant individuals, who had good technical qualities, but they also work very well together, which is important. Looking at the move before it happened, it was something that enticed me, and I wanted to be part of a promotion challenge again.’

Murray went on to say that he felt there were lots of similarities between Brighton and Bournemouth, so he was hopeful of a promotion run next season.

‘The wing play definitely drew me to the club. I see traits of the Bournemouth squad at Brighton. There`s a huge togetherness here and Brighton is a place where a lot of the players live, so they spend a lot of time off the pitch together as well, which is healthy. We know the job in hand and we`ve got to go out and do it.’
