Morgan and Davison sign new contracts
Good news today as the club made a positive investment in the future by offering new contracts to Albie Morgan and Josh Davison.
Morgan and Davison, both 20, signed three and two years deals respectively. Davison has an option of a further year.
Unexpected timing with confusion and shambles going on behind the scenes, but someone, Paul Elliott we presume, took Bowyer and Gallen’s advice and sanctioned it. Elliott has no money and is yet to be approved by the EFL (no rush eh), but there must have been some upfront costs. Who’s paying?
Anyway, enough of that, this is very good news and congratulations to both young men. Morgan starting on Saturday was a big shock, and Bowyer has been consistently tough on the midfielder criticizing his fitness and the defensive side of his game. Tough love from a man who was fit as a butcher’s dog and defended like a tiger when he played.
Morgan listened and came back from lockdown firing and fitter than he’s ever been.
As for Josh, he was outstanding when he came to the rescue of the injury smashed squad in January. Very physical (look at the size of him in that photo) and hard working. We were all chuffed when he scored that goal at home to West Brom weren’t we?
Steve Gallen said: “Signing these two players was made easy because they both want to be at the club. Their signings show we are starting to make steps forward again.”
