Morris Signs New Deal
Monday, 17th Dec 2018 17:19
Young striker Ben Morris has put pen to paper on a new two-and-a-half-year contract with the Blues, tying him to the club until 2021 with Town having an option to keep him for a further season.
The 19-year-old, who has spent the first half of the season season, on loan in League Two with Forest Green Rovers, is pleased to have signed the deal.
“I’m really happy to have the contract sorted,” he told the club site. “This club means a lot to me and I’m looking forward to getting back here and playing some football.”
Reflecting on his spell with at the Nailsworth-based club, for whom he scored his first senior goal in last month’s 2-1 victory over Carlisle, he said: “I had a slow start with Forest Green but my loan spell there has been improving.
“Hopefully I can get some more games under my belt and add a few goals because I’ve been learning a lot during my time with them.”
England U17, U18 and U19 international Morris, who came through the Blues academy, has made one start and four sub appearances for Town and five starts - two in the league - and three sub appearances for Forest Green.
He is due to remain with the Gloucestershire club for the season but the spell can be cut short in January.
The Colchester-born frontman also made one sub appearance during a previous loan at Woking during 2016/17.

It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.

It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
