Josh Morris says he is ‘raring to go’ after becoming Fleetwood Town’s second signing of the summer.

The 27-year-old joins the Cod Army following three successful seasons at Scunthorpe United, and joins left-back Danny Andrew as the latest additions to Joey Barton’s squad.

Fresh from signing a two-year deal at Highbury, the midfielder was quick to point out that he’d made the right decision to come back to the Fylde Coast, after two previous loan spells at the club.

“I’m glad I’ve been able to get this sorted, because it’s been going on all summer really,” said Morris.

“To get signed and sorted with a week to go allows me to get fully prepared for pre-season. I’m delighted to be here. It’s a club I know really well and I can’t wait to get started.

“I spoke to the manager as soon as the season finished, and I was really impressed with what he had to say. I know the Chairman really well from the loan spells I’ve had here, and everyone knows the ambition that he’s got. After weighing everything up, I knew this was the right decision.”

Morris will be linking back up with former teammate Paddy Madden at Highbury, with the midfielder looking to build on his previous partnership with the Irishman.  

“He’s a great player and a good lad,” stated the former Blackburn Rovers man.

“I know Paddy really well – he scored loads of goals at Scunthorpe when I was there and obviously here last season too. To have a friendly face in the dressing room always helps.

“Hopefully the best of me is to come and I can’t wait to get started.”
