Morris scored the winning penalty in a 4–2 penalty shoot-out win against Dublin rivals Shamrock Rovers, to put Pats' into the 2015 League of Ireland Cup Final.[5] On 5 March 2016, it was announced Morris had joined NIFL Premiership side Glenavon, however in May 2016 he took a position with League of Ireland side Bohemians as their Youth Development Officer.[6]
