Morris looking to make up for lost time

Striker excited to be back at Stadium MK for the 2020/21 season...

Carlton Morris has unfinished business to attend to this season, after completing a return to Stadium MK.

The striker joined MK Dons on loan in January but his stay was limited to just 10 appearances due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Morris, though, is back from Norwich City for the 2020/21 season and hopes to pick up where he left off in March.

“With that spell getting cut short, I feel like it’s justice being done that I get another shot at it for a full season,” the 24-year-old told iFollow MK Dons after finalising his loan switch.

“Sometimes with loans, for whatever reason, they don’t work out – whether you don’t feel settled or you can’t integrate easily with the squad. There was none of it here - it was a great time from day one.

“I had a great time here. I got on really well with the lads in the dressing room and felt a real connection with the fans and the Club in general. Hopefully those bonds will only strengthen as we go through the season.

“We picked up a few good results and I felt it was a Club really on the up in terms of progression, especially with the new gaffer and Luke Williams. It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Football Club.”

He added: “As soon as I heard that the Club was interested in extending the loan, I was keen straight away. It was just about making it happen.”

Morris totalled 38 games last term, during his loan spells at Stadium MK and with Rotherham United during the first-half of the campaign. That, after coming off a 2018/19 season which was completely wiped out due to a serious knee injury.

“For me, last season, in my head it was just about coming back from knee injury,” he said. “At some points, I was just solely focused on getting through training and games.

“I treated it as a comeback season and I did well, and played 30 something league games. I’d have bitten your hand off for that at the start of the season.”

Morris continued: “I’m feeling great now. I did a lot during the break we’ve had. Hopefully I can kick on from here. I’m excited to get going.”
