Morgan puts pen to paper

Harlow Town Ladies are delighted to announce the signing of Lindsey Morgan from Billericay Town Ladies, who will bolster the midfield.

Morgan spent 6-years at Billericay and was captain of the side for several seasons, after she joined ahead of the 2015/16 season as the Blues looked for promotion from the Eastern Region Women’s Football League. In that first season, Lindsey made 11-apperances, scoring 6 goals in the process.

She had 25 appearances under her belt the following season as Billericay finished 6th but also doubled her goal-tally, scoring 12 before having one of her best seasons as the Blues were promoted to the National League Division One South East, where she was pivotal. The Midfielder made 23 appearances and netted 18-times during the 2017/18 season.

As captain, Morgan almost sent the blues straight up the following season to the National League Southern Division but they just missed out, finishing second behind Crawley Wasps before she spent another two-seasons in the FA Women’s National League Division One South. Over her time at the club, Lindsey made over 60-apperances and contributed over 35 goals.

Following her return to football after giving birth, Lindsey decided it was time to move on and join the Hawks.

Speaking on her signing, Morgan said “I’m really excited [to join the club], I just want to get back playing. I’ve had a little break, having my baby daughter, so I just want to get back on the pitch and I’m excited to join this group of players.”

“The club have been in mind now for over a year or so and I did speak to Dean last year but decided to stay at Billericay. I feel it’s the right decision and right time to come and join the club.”

“I watched a few [Harlow] games and I think my experience will help with game management. I feel I can help manage the game and calm the youngsters down when that’s needed but my experience is the biggest factor I can bring to the team.”

“I play as a centre-mid, I’m a hard-worker, like to get the ball and play simple. I also score a few goals which I hope I can continue doing but most importantly, I like to do the dirty work and give it to the flare players to do their thing.”

Also speaking on the new arrival, manager Dean Perrett said “I’m delighted to welcome Lindsey to the club. Once I knew she was available, it was a no-brainer and getting it over the line was a must. Lindsey will bring so much experience and knowledge to the side and is a huge signing for us. I look forward to working with her ahead of the new season.”
