"It Is Our Aim To Lift Those Grey Clouds As Quickly As Possible"

5 May 2022

Alex Morris believes that the ‘grey clouds’ that had formed over the club during a relegation season will be lifted with more positive reinforcement.  Morris succeeded former manager, David Artell, after our relegation to League Two was confirmed with a disappointing 2-0 loss at Doncaster Rovers.

Morris oversaw the last four games of the season, inspiring an uplift in performance and in the process collated four points from a win over AFC Wimbledon and a draw against Ipswich Town.

Morris was soon confirmed as Artell’s permanent successor and he has quickly got down to work on recruitment and improving his squad ahead of the new campaign.

He told “I think we have been able to lift some of those grey clouds that were over the club, but what we have been able to bring in the few weeks and four games we have been able to work with the players.

“To a certain degree there has been plenty of positives to take from that work and we will take that into the pre-season but ultimately we are also not daft. We know the frailties and weaknesses that need are there and we need to improve upon.

“We know the solutions we need to find to overcome those weaknesses we have at present. We have already set about doing that in regards to our planning now and moving forward.

Alex added: “That is through from recruitment, to the planning of training and the implementation of that training to make sure that there is no repeat of those things that were so evident this season.”
