AT the time of his retirement from football in February 2001 at the age of 34, Kevin Morrison was the most prolific goal scorer in the League of Wales with 140 from 219 appearances for Aberystwyth, Porthmadog and Newtown.
His feats have since been eclipsed by other marksmen, but he remains one of the greatest goalscorers of them all.
The Scottish-born striker played in the league's first season 1992/3 and spent the majority of his Welsh domestic career with Aberystwyth, where he hit 85 goals in 134 (+11) games.
He played in both legs of the Seasiders' Uefa InterToto Cup ties against Maltese outfit Floriana in 1999, scoring both goals in the 2-2 draw at Park Avenue.
He left Aber for a short time in 1994/5 for Porthmadog, notching 13 goals from 20 appearances for The Traeth outfit, but soon returned to continue his goal scoring exploits for the Black & Greens, including four in one match against his former club in April 1995.
Two years with Newtown brought him another 42 goals including 27 in season 1997/8, a record that still stands at Latham Park, but an ankle injury forced him to miss the Robins' Uefa Cup ties with Wisla Krakow.
After a few games at the start of season 1998/9 he returned to Aberystwyth for a third time but, with the goals starting to dry up and just four substitute appearances in 2000/1, he hung up his boots for the last time after a glorious career.
