Chelmsford City sign former Liverpool youngster

National League South side Chelmsford City sign a former Liverpool youngster who was most recently at Glenn Tamplin’s Romford.

He is currently 26 year old, a product of the Liverpool Youth Academy, and has had plenty of experience at EFL and non league level.

Guessed him yet? That man is Adam Morgan who expressed how much he’s looking forward to playing for them and using his experience to helping them out once the 2020/21 season kicks off.

He said: “I’m very happy to be joining City. It’s a very good club with ambitious goals and I want to help the team achieve them”.

Former footballer, turned Chelmsford City boss, Robbie Simpson, said: “He is a prolific goal scorer and a striker that can link the play between midfield and attack and that is something that I think we need. I’m really excited to bring Adam to the football club. He’ll be a great asset for us.”

During Morgan’s career, he’s represented England at under-17 and under-19 level, made 17 appearances for the national under-17 team, scoring four goals, and this included playing in the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Mexico. At under-19 level he was capped five times, scoring once.

While at Liverpool’s Academy, in the 2010/11 season, Adam scored a total of 18 goals in 16 games including a run of scoring in each of 12 consecutive games towards the end of the season.

This earned him a debut for Liverpool Reserves on 12 April 2011 against Bolton Wanderers. Adam’s time at Liverpool included first team appearances in the Europa League in which he made his first-team debut in a match against Hearts in 2012 and his first competitive start in the return leg just a week after.

A lack of game time saw Adam join then-League Two side Rotherham United on loan to get some first-team experience before heading to Championship side Yeovil. He then had spells at Accrington Stanley in League Two, before dropping down a few leagues for Hemel Hempstead Town in the National League South, then Colwyn Bay in the Northern Premier League Division, Curzon Ashton and FC Halifax Town in National League North and more recently Romford.

Manager Robbie Simpson added: “Adam comes with a great pedigree having been brought through the system at Liverpool and progressed there into playing in the first team. I’ve had reports from people that were at Liverpool at the time that I know and they speak very highly of Adam.”


What excites you most about joining the Clarets?

A: “I have recently spoken to Robbie Simpson for the first time and we clicked straight away. I am excited to work with him.”.

What do you expect from yourself next season?

A: “I want to be part of a dressing room with a winning mentality so that winning becomes a habit. I believe Robbie has such mentality and wants to bring like-minded players in. I also think I can help get the best out of people on the pitch and I can be just as helpful to others about the mental side of the game off the pitch.”

Here at Chelmsford we have just launched our Academy. As a product of Liverpool’s Academy, what’s your thinking on giving the youngsters a chance to play for the first team?

A: “If you’re good enough you’re old enough. Youngsters are important nowadays and seeing that Chelmsford have just launched the Academy has been a positive factor for me because it shows they are a club with great ambitions.”

Have you got any suggestions for Academy players?

A: “My advice would be: love the opportunity you have; work your hardest in everything you do; give 100 percent and you’ll be paid back in the future. I have played at almost every level and dealt with any situation, so if any player, parent or anyone in the Academy needs any advice along the way I can be there for them.”

How was your last season at Romford?

A: “I enjoyed it at Romford. I knew I could play at a higher level but I had a girlfriend who I have been with for a long time and I wanted to move to the area. Romford gave me the opportunity to come down sooner than I expected. I will always be grateful. Good luck to them for the season”

Robbie Simpson said: “I think that Chelmsford City is a great fit for Adam as we are a family-oriented club and I think he’ll thrive in the atmosphere that we’re trying to create at the football club. I can’t wait to see him pull on the Claret shirt for the first time.”

The footballer is also a UEFA qualified coach and often helps with elite professional training, 1-2-1 and group sessions as part of his football coaching venture called ‘Adam Morgan Elite Coaching’. Below is a video of just of some of the youngsters taking part…
