FOOT­BALLER Con­nor Mor­ris, a pupil at the Tow­ers School, is in line to make his Eng­land de­but to­mor­row (Fri­day) when the un­der-16s take on North­ern Ire­land in the first game of the Sky Sports Victory Shield, at the Bal­ly­mena Show­grounds. The 15-year-old, a for­mer Ken­ning­ton Ju­nior, turned Charl­ton Ath­letic Academy player, was called up to the 18man squad on Septem­ber 15, af­ter im­press­ing at a 40-player trial ear­lier in the year. Equally adept in both de­fence and mid­field, Mor­ris will be hop­ing to make his mark in front of the TV cam­eras in North­ern Ire­land, be­fore games against Wales (Oc­to­ber 31) and Scot­land (Novem­ber 29). Con­nor hopes it is a ma­jor step­ping stone in his am­bi­tion to make it as a full pro­fes­sional. He can be sure of some lo­cal sup­port as mum and dad Sally and Win­ston are trav­el­ling to Ire­land to en­joy his big day.
