'He's a brilliant goalkeeper and saved us many a point this year' - Crawley Town goalkeeper Glenn Morris praised as he signs new deal

Crawley Town goalkeeper Glenn Morris has signed a new one-year deal, with the club holding the option to extend for a further year..

When the 38-year-old joined the club in 2016 by Dermot Drummy, he was 'brought in as a coach and cover', but four years later he is still one first name on the team sheet and is still regarded as one of the best stoppers in League Two.

He has now made more than 240 appearances for the club.

Glenn Morris has just signed a new one-year contract with Crawley Town

"He's kicking on a bit but he is not done by any stretch. He's very agile still, the boys all love him and I am glad he he has got another contract because he is one of the best keepers in the league."

When we interviewed Morris in November, just after his 500th professional appearance, we asked what it was about Crawley Town that has made him want to stay.

He said: "It’s where I have felt most comfortable and at home. I have enjoyed every minute of being here.”

“The club has bought into me, the fans and everyone. I have played freely here as well and I think that has shown on the pitch.”
