Bryn Andrew Morris (born 25 April 1996) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender or midfielder for League One club Portsmouth.

Early and personal life[edit]

Born in Hartlepool, County Durham,[5] Morris attended the High Tunstall College of Science.[6] In April 2014, Morris was awarded the sporting achievement award at the Hartlepool Mail's Pride of Hartlepool ceremony.[7]

Club career[edit]

Middlesbrough[edit]

Morris began his career at Middlesbrough, having joined the club when he was eleven and made progress through the academy.[6] He made his first-team debut on 5 January 2013 in an FA Cup tie away to Hastings United, a match that Middlesbrough won 4–1.[8] He made his league debut on 4 May in a 2–0 defeat away to Sheffield Wednesday.[8] Two months after making his debut, Morris signed his first professional contract with the club, which would keep him until 2016.[9]

On 21 November 2014, Morris signed for League Two club Burton Albion on a one-month loan.[10] One day later, Morris made his debut, where he came on as a substitute for Adam McGurk, in a 1–0 victory over Luton Town.[11] His impressive displays at Burton Albion prompted manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink to tip him for greatness.[12] On 13 December 2014, Morris provided an assist for Shane Cansdell-Sherriff to score the third goal in a 4–0 win over Hartlepool United.[13] Despite Burton being keen to extend the loan[14] it never materialised, and Morris returned to Middlesbrough, having made five appearances for Burton Albion.[15]

On 6 August 2015, Morris signed for Coventry City on a season-long loan, linking up again with Tony Mowbray, the manager under whom he had made his professional debut.[16] He made six appearances, the last coming against Rochdale, for Coventry before being recalled by Middlesbrough on 26 October 2015.[17]

On 27 October 2015, Morris signed for League Two club York City on a one-month loan.[18] On 28 January 2016, Morris signed for League One club Walsall on a two-month loan.[19]

Shrewsbury Town[edit]

Morris was released from his Middlesbrough contract in order to join League One club Shrewsbury Town on 20 January 2017 on a contract until the end of 2016–17.[20] He made his debut for the club the following day, as an 88th-minute substitute in a 1–0 home victory over Oldham Athletic.[21] After featuring regularly to help the club escape relegation, he signed a two-year contract extension in June 2017.[22]

Morris joined Shrewsbury's League One rivals Wycombe Wanderers on 7 August 2018 on loan until 3 January 2019.[23]

Portsmouth[edit]

Morris signed for League One club Portsmouth on 14 January 2019 on a two-and-a-half-year contract for an undisclosed fee.[24]

International career[edit]

Morris has represented England at under-16, under-17, under-18, and under-19 levels, captaining the team at each level.[4][25][26]
