Morris, 19, joined Town in August on a loan deal and has now signed for the Derwent Park outfit on a two-year contract. He played just three games for Town, scoring a try against Oldham, but coach Gary Charlton reckons he is the real deal.

“Andy’s young and strong and looks like he’s got a lot of potential,” said Charlton.

“He played only three games for us during his loan spell and made an immediate impact alongside some good players. He’s a big unit for a centre and is very enthusiastic and wants to play for Town. At 6’ 1” and about 16 stones, Andy gives a big presence out there and he takes some stopping.

“I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him and, when he knows how we want him to play, I am sure there’s a lot more to see of Andy yet.

Morris, who may be looking for work in west Cumbria, said: “I was at Workington Town on loan and absolutely loved it. The way they treated me was fantastic.

“I played three games and scored one try and can’t wait to get a regular first team start with Town,” added Morris who has starred for the City Reds’ Under-20s this summer.

With several more additions expected in the near future, Charlton added: “The squad is coming together nicely. We’ve re-signed some good players from last season and we’re doing the best we can to get the best possible squad we can for next year.

“It’s not as easy as signing good players. You have to sign players who can do a job and slot into the existing squad.”



Alex Salmond says Cumbria will be Scotland's closest friend as well as nearest neighbour, come independence. Do you agree?

You don't shun close friends and keep them

Why would he care, if he believes he doesn't need us?

Yes. Our bonds with Scotland are historic and unbreakable
