player bio

A hugely experienced step three performer despite his relative youth, who signed for Hednesford in June 2019 from relegated Halesowen Town

 

Worcester-born Morris was a product of the Stourbridge youth system initially, joining Championship side Brentford in the summer of 2013. He played for the U21 side in his first season at Griffin Park, before making nine appearances for the Bees in the Premier League 2 Development League during 2014-2015

 

Midway through the season, he was allowed to return to Stourbridge on loan, where he made a number of appearances after having his loan period at the Amblecote extended in January 2015

 

After returning to Brentford, he was loaned out to Maidenhead United almost immediately in a deal that ran until the end of the season with the Vanarama Conference South side 

 

With his two year deal at Brentford at an end, Morris was released in May 2015 in a move that saw the youngster return to the Midlands. He trialled for Vanarama National League North side Worcester City during July 2015, earning himself a contract at Aggborough in the process. His early season form was impressive, but a broken hand put paid to any progress as he spent a spell on the sidelines

 

In January 2016, he joined Evo-Stik Premier League Rushall Olympic for a spell that was extended until the end of the 2015-2016 season, playing a string of games for the Pics

 

After agreeing a new deal with Worcester in the summer of 2016, he was allowed to join Stafford Rangers on a dual registration deal. He slotted straight into the Rangers backline and impressed alongside Mat Bailey as Rangers looked to establish themselves back at step three following promotion in the summer

 

In December 2016, Morris made his move to Stafford a permanent one as Worcester's deepening financial issues saw them allow players to leave. His fine form for Rangers saw him named as manager Neil Kitching's player of the year at the end of season awards in May 2017

 

Another fine season in 2017-2018 saw Morris continue to establish himself as a virtual ever-present in the Rangers defence, with Kitching's side finishing in a mid-table position in the Evo-Stik Premier League and winning the Staffordshire Senior Cup - beating Hednesford at Stoke City's Bet365 Stadium in April 2018

 

His form for Stafford had caught the eye of step two sides once more, with Vanarama National League North side Leamington signing Morris in June 2018. He was used as a substitute in the opening games of the season before electing to join Evo-Stik Southern Premier League Central strugglers Halesowen Town in September 2018

 

   Despite Rob Smith's best efforts, Halesowen's form saw them sink into the bottom three an eventually relegated to step four at the end of the 2018-2019 season. Morris's experience and reputation as still in demand, however, with the Pitmen moving to bring this established step three performer to Keys Park in June 2019
