KALVIN ORSI is set to spend the next few weeks seeing what adventures lie in store.
Some of them are off the pitch, like how he will spend his time now he is back in part-time football.
But others will be on it, and they will be in a Dumbarton shirt after he completed a two-year deal with the club today.
The former Morton winger admitted he had offers elsewhere, but his admiration for the club swayed him to become a Sons player.
It’s an adventure he hopes will end in success.
Speaking to www.dumbartonfootballclub.com, Kalvin said: “It was a really hard decision at first, coming back to part-time, but it’s a good team, looking at what the manager is trying to do.
“I probably heard sometime last week that Dumbarton were interested in me. I had contract offers from another couple of clubs, but Dumbarton was the most appealing.
“I’ve played against the club before and I like everything about them, even the stadium, and that was what influenced my decision.
“I’ve not even got to the stage of thinking about what I’ll do away from football. I’ve solely focused on my future in football and I’ll plan the rest of my life from there, and see what other adventures come up.
“I’ve not seen too much of what’s happened so far but I know a couple of boys who’ve been here before and that’s one thing that’s helped me.
“Sam Ramsbottom and Ryan McGeever are former team-mates of mine from Morton and Brechin City, so that’ll be good for me.”
As if it was possible, Kalvin has had an even shorter close season than Dumbarton have had.
The night after Sons sealed survival against Edinburgh City, he was part of the Morton squad for their 3-0 win over Airdrie which clinched the Greenock side’s place in the Championship.
But the quick turnaround isn’t something he’s bothered by – in fact, he reckons it can help him hit the ground running.
Ahead of training with the squad today, he added: “Personally, I just want to work as hard as I can, and help the team get as high up the game as we can get, and achieve a really high place.
“And I want to get back to enjoying football again. It’s been a quick rest, but I’m happy to a point to get back so quickly.
“The positive thing about such a short break is that you don’t lose so much fitness. It’s been quite handy if you look at it that way.”
