Chelmsford City can confirm that Adam Morgan has left the Club.


The former Liverpool attacker joined the Clarets ahead of the 2020/21 campaign and made 17 appearances across the season.

With the null and void vote brining the term to a close early, Morgan finished the season as City’s top scorer with seven goals.

During the current campaign, Morgan made 11 Chelmsford appearances across all competitions and scored twice.

His first goal came in the 2-1 away victory against Bath City, converting a spot-kick in the first half at Twerton Park and the second was a late equaliser against Oxford City in October.

Speaking on the attacker’s departure, City Manager Robbie Simpson commented: “Unfortunately, it hasn’t quite worked out for Morgs as we both would have hoped this season.

“We invested a lot of time and effort in Morgs off the pitch to hopefully try and get him playing his best and most consistent football on the pitch; it just hasn’t worked out.

“Morgs has got a lot of thinking to do. He absolutely loves his football, but he’s got to figure out whether it’s the best thing for him.

“He’s built up a successful coaching business, he seems to really enjoy it and it seems to be amazing for him but playing football in a competitive environment doesn’t seem to be helping him as a person.

“We’ve got to be a bit unselfish at times and although Morgs has undoubted quality as a footballer, we hope he can think of himself as more than that.

“We hope that us parting ways can give him the opportunity to focus on himself as a person rather than him just being a football player.

“Whether he decides to carry on playing or whether he decides to take some time away from the game, obviously that’s up to him but we feel like we’ve got to a stage where we’ve given him all the help, guidance and support we can and it just hasn’t worked out as we’d both hoped.

“We’ll always be here for Morgs personally but we feel like the time is right for him to move on in footballing terms.”

The Club would like to thank Adam for his services and wish him well in the future.
