Month to re­mem­ber for Mor­ris

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - In Business -

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.
