Date of birth








Joe Morrell signed from Bristol City on a permanent basis in October 2020.

The 24-year-old midfielder began his career with the Robins and signed a professional contract with the club in 2012. He made his debut the following year in a 2-1 Football League Trophy defeat against Wycombe Wanderers.

He spent the majority of his time with the youth teams at Ashton Gate, before respective loans with Sutton United and Margate in 2016 and 2017. 

Morrell joined Cheltenham Town on loan for the 2017-18 season, when he made 40 appearances and scored against the Hatters in a 2-2 draw at Kenilworth Road, but his most successful loan spell came last season with Lincoln City. 

He played 29 times in League One until the season was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic, but it was later announced that Morrell was awarded the Imps’ Player of the Season award. 

Morrell made his debut for the club during the 2-0 home defeat against Stoke City and played a further nine times in the Championship.

The Welsh international was part of their Euro 2020 squad and played all three group matches, providing an assist in the 1-1 draw against Switzerland.
