Month to remember for Morris
AARON MORRIS is the Bowland Brewery sponsored Player of the Month for November at Runcorn Linnets.
Having now fully found his feet at this higher level of football, Morris has recently been turning in some of his best-ever form in a Runcorn shirt, and a faultless four weeks has earned him the monthly award.
Morris has been a mainstay of Michael Ellison’s defence ever since the former Linnets defender took charge back in the summer of 2016. ●
Morris has become an even better player since making the step up the Evo-Stik League level with Linnets and has formed an impressive partnership with fellow centre-back Pete Wylie this season.
Pivotal in helping Linnets register a clean sheet against a strong Leek Town side at the start of the month, Morris then came away from the defeat at Market Drayton as one of the few standout performers in an out-of-sorts Runcorn team showing.
In the eye-catching Integro Cup win at Leek Town, not only were Morris’s defensive abilities on show but also his knack for scoring the odd goal, getting his name on the scoresheet with a clinical headed finish of which any centre forward would have been proud.
When Newcastle Town visited the Millbank Linnets Stadium, Morris was once again a standout performer, particularly in the first half when Runcorn were not fully on song.
His efforts in this game did not go unnoticed as they earned him the man-of-the-match award in the Linnets Updates twitter poll that follows every game.
