Clarets snap up former Liverpool striker Morgan

CHELMSFORD CITY have signed former Liverpool Youth Academy striker, Adam Morgan, from Isthmian League North outfit, Romford.

The 26-year-old appeared for Liverpool’s first team against Heart of Midlothian in the Europa League back in 2012 and has been capped by England at several youth levels following a prolific goalscoring record with the Reds youngsters.

Spells at Rotherham United, Yeovil Town and Accrington Stanley followed for Morgan before drifting into the non-league game, representing several clubs including Colwyn Bay, Curzon Ashton and FC Halifax Town ahead of arriving at Romford.

Speaking to about his latest signing, Clarets boss, Robbie Simpson, said: “Adam comes with a great pedigree having been brought through the system at Liverpool and progressed there into playing in the first team.

“I’ve had reports from people that were at Liverpool at the time that I know and they speak very highly of Adam.”

Meanwhile, the player said: “I want to be part of a dressing room with a winning mentality so that winning becomes a habit. 

“I believe Robbie has such mentality and wants to bring like-minded players in. I also think I can help get the best out of people on the pitch and I can be just as helpful to others about the mental side of the game off the pitch.”
