Striker Cameron Morgan will inevitably attract interest from NSW National Premier League clubs after a phenomenal six-goal performance in Saturday's win over Port Kembla, Albion Park coach Paul Carter has declared.

Producing one of the most amazing performances in Illawarra Premier League history, Morgan scored five goals in 35 minutes at Terry Reserve, before completing the set of six in the second-half in the 6-1 win.

As a former Port Kembla player, Morgan was praised for his work ethic, Carter saying he deserves to be playing at a higher level after an injury-hit career so far.

"He's the most dedicated player, he works so hard at training," Carter said.

"He's just one of those young guys who puts all the work in and if anything, has been prepared to put his body on the line too much in games, which has contributed to the injuries he's had.

"Days like that don't come around much for any player, but no doubt when a striker scores six, the Wolves or other NPL clubs should be taking notice, he certainly deserves his chance, whenever it might come."

It's been a rollercoaster start to the season, but Park are now in title contention, after Cringila stunned Wollongong Olympic on Saturday. The Lions were stuck on one point at the foot of the NPL ladder when new coach Stuart Beedie came on board, but he has now secured seven of the last nine available, with wins over leaders Olympics, relegation rivals South Coast United and a draw against powerhouse Wollongong United.
