Morris hoping it isn't the end for him at Fleetwood

4 January 2015

Winger scored a brace in his final game against Swindon

Josh Morris is hoping his goals in the 2-2 draw with table toppers Swindon Town is not his final game in a Fleetwood Town shirt.

The 23-year-old, who will now return to parent club Blackburn Rovers, says the 11 month stay at Highbury has helped him develop as a player.

Morris’ brace gave the Cod Army a two goal lead before the visitors came back into the game courtesy of an unfortunate deflection from Mark Roberts, and a close range finish from Louis Thompson.

He said: “It is out of my hands at the moment, it is between Blackburn and Fleetwood but I want to stay, I’ve made that quite clear.

“I’ve had a really good time here for the last year. Winning promotion and then competing in League One has been great so hopefully it’ll get sorted sooner rather than later.

“I come here to get games and that’s exactly what I have achieved. I have really enjoyed it, the fans, the pitch, the stadium, the staff, the players, everyone.”

He added: “I want to say a massive thanks to them all and hopefully I’ll be back here in the not so distant future.

Reflecting on the draw against the Robins, the winger was happy to get on the scoresheet for the second time in as many games.

“It’s been good to get on the scoresheet at Rochdale and then two here today, but it’s just a shame we couldn’t hold on for the three points.

“I thought first half they they got the better of us, but then we came out second half and showed them what we’re about.

The midfielder finished by paying tribute to the Cod Army who have supported him over the past few months.

“They’ve been great as they’ve been screaming my name, shouting my name and there’s nothing better as a player I must admit.”
