Morris happy to play anywhere

15 May 2017

Kieron Morris enjoyed playing as a box-to-box midfielder in the latter stages of the 2016/17 season - but admits he is happy to play anywhere Walsall Manager Jon Whitney plays him.

Morris, who impressed on the right of midfield earlier in the season before being utilised in the middle as the Saddlers switched formation, netted six goals last season, including back-to-back-to-back strikes against Charlton Athletic, Bury and Grimsby Town in August.

His last strike was a fine stooping header in the 1-1 draw at Shrewsbury Town after a late run into the box from midfield, netting his 10th overall league goal for the club in the process.

“I like that position,” Morris told Saddlers Player HD. “I’ll play in there if the gaffer wants me to play in me there because it adds games to my career. 

“I like the wing as well because I like to get at players, but I’ll play wherever I’m asked to.

“Getting six goals this season I’m delighted with, but I wanted more.

“I wanted 10 and to get into double figures but in football it doesn’t always go to plan

“I’ll take it one step at a time and look forward to it.

"I feel like I’m progressing all the time, as I’m getting older and getting more experience as well. I feel like I’m more senior pro instead of a young lad!"
