CLIN­TON WANTS TO START AFRESH

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

COLCH­ESTER striker Clin­ton Mor­ri­son in­tends to be back among the goals next sea­son – but at an­other club af­ter an­nounc­ing he is leav­ing the U’s this sum­mer.

The 34-year-old ar­rived as then man­ager John Ward’s flag­ship sign­ing in 2012 but has strug­gled to make a se­ri­ous im­pact in front of goal.

The for­mer Crys­tal Palace, Birm­ing­ham, Coven­try and Sh­effield Wed­nes­day for­ward has failed to reach dou­ble fig­ures across the two sea­sons, with yes­ter­day’s game against Wal­sall his fi­nal out­ing.

But look­ing to pro­long his ca­reer the Repub­lic of Ire­land in­ter­na­tional is opt­ing for pas­tures new.

“Colch­ester is a great club, and I have no re­grets,” in­sisted Mor­ri­son. “It’s fan­tas­tic we avoided rel­e­ga­tion again to re­main in League One. How­ever, I am not stay­ing.

“I want to en­joy my­self play­ing foot­ball. I’m not be­ing dis­re­spect­ful, but I haven’t re­ally en­joyed my­self in the few years I have been at Colch­ester.

“I’ve en­joyed bits of it, don’t get me wrong – it’s a great dress­ing room with some great lads – but I want to play foot­ball, and I know I can still score goals.”

MOV­ING ON: Clin­ton Mor­ri­son
