† Appearances (Goals).
Born in Cape Town, Morris started his career at local Santos Football Club before joining Greek side Aris F.C. in June 2001, for €350.000. In his second season in the Superleague he appeared in 27 games (two goals) as the Thessaloniki club finished in sixth position, thus qualifying to the UEFA Cup.
After two years, Morris joined fellow top-divisioner Panathinaikos FC. He made his UEFA Champions League debut on 1 October 2003 in a 1–1 group stage home draw against Rangers. During his five years with the team he never appeared in less than 21 league matches, as his team won the double in the 2003–04 campaign; additionally, he played in 14 Champions League and 18 UEFA Cup contests.
At the beginning of 2008–09, Morris was loaned out to Recreativo de Huelva in Spain. He made his La Liga debut on 31 August 2008, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–0 derby away win against Real Betis.
Morris only missed one league game for the Andalusians, scoring on 3 May 2009 in 2–1 away triumph over CA Osasuna in the last minute, but Recre eventually suffered relegation. In the following season, still on loan, he joined another Spanish top level club, Racing de Santander.
Morris started in his first games with the Cantabrians, but eventually was only third or fourth-choice stopper – 11 appearances in the first 15 rounds, only one in the following 23. On 5 May 2010, he was sent off in a 1–5 home loss against Sevilla FC.
In July 2010, after it was revealed that Panathinaikos would net extend his contract with the club, Morris signed with Cypriot side Apollon Limassol. After one season, the 30-year-old returned to his country and joined SuperSport United FC.
Morris made his debut with the South African national team in 2004. In that same year, he was temporarily suspended by FIFA from all competitions after attempting to attack a referee during a 1–2 loss against Zambia on 21 February.
