Chelmsford City is delighted to reveal that Adam Morgan has agreed terms with the Club for the 2021/22 campaign.
The Liverpool-born striker joined the Club last summer and quickly became a fans’ favourite at the EMG Inspire Stadium.
Morgan bagged his first goal for the Clarets during the second league game of the season, scoring the equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Oxford City in October.
Across the rest of the term, the 27-year-old forward made 17 appearances for Robbie Simpson’s side, in which he netted seven times.
Having begun his career with Premier League Liverpool, Adam had loan spells with Rotherham United and Yeovil Town before his move to the Glovers was made permanent in 2014.
After a loan move to St Johnstone, Morgan then left Huish Park and joined Accrington Stanley, where he made a handful of appearances.
The striker then departed the Lancashire club and went on to represent a host of non-league sides, most recently Romford, prior to joining the Clarets.
Speaking on agreeing terms, Morgan said: “It’s nice to get everything done early on.
“Obviously, we’ve known about this for a couple of months – that we want to be retained for next season.
“I don’t think last season lived up to expectation for anyone. Obviously, it was a bit of a weird year, so I’m looking forward to next year – having the fans back in and giving it a real good go.
“Last season, you can just write it off for everyone, so I’m looking forward to my first, proper season.”
City boss Robbie Simpson commented: “Adam was one of the bright sparks for us last season.
“We brought him in and I feel like he’s helped us and also, we’ve helped him. He was at a stage in his life where he needed some stability and comfort.
“I think that us being the way that we are, a very welcoming and family-orientated club, and the way that we worked with him really suited him well.
“He certainly matured over the season and he’s in a much better place mentally than when he first arrived and I know that he’s very thankful to us but also, we’re very thankful to him.
“He is such an infectious character and when he’s in a positive frame of mind, it does breed off to the rest of the team and it’s a lovely trait to have.
“He’s obviously got undoubted quality and I think he’s turned from an individual with undoubted quality, to a real team player throughout the course of the season.
“We’re really excited for him to build on that next season and become a real leader in this squad.
“He’s a great age for this squad and technically, he’s up there with the very best I’ve seen.
“So, it was really key for us to keep Adam and we’re thankful to him for staying because I know he had other options in not only our league but leagues above.
“He feels at home here and that’s really great to hear from him; I can’t wait for him to be with us again next season.”
