FORMER Morton striker Warren Hawke says he is delighted to see his son follow in his footsteps by playing for the Cappielow club.

Lewis Hawke, 18, recently joined the Ton youth set-up from Linwood Rangers Boys' Club and has already begun emulating his father by scoring four goals in his first four games.

The Kirkcaldy-born teenager, who is also a striker, bagged a braced in the under-19 side's 5-1 Scottish Cup win over Clyde at Cappielow last week.

And Hawke senior has also revealed he is very impressed with the club's revamped youth system.

He told the Tele: "It's great to see Lewis follow in my footsteps by pulling on a Morton shirt. I was at the game where he scored two, so I was really proud.

"He's now scored four goals in his first four games - but it's early days and he has a long way to go yet.

"But I think he's in great hands. I've been impressed with the quality of the youth set-up, both in terms of the coaching and the players.

"Mick Rankin and the coaches Scott McKellar and David McLeod do a great job with the under-19s, and the youth system is going from strength to strength."
