Glenn Morris honoured to win Player of the Year.
Ever-reliable goalkeeper Glenn Morris said it was a ‘real honour’ to receive the Player of the Year award after shining between the sticks this season for the Gills.
The prestigious award was presented by American owners Brad and Shannon Galinson on Sunday via a video link and the trophy was handed to the shot-stopper by Director of Football Kenny Jackett on a night of glitz and glamour in the Great Hall.
In the most unpredictable of seasons at ME7, which witnessed many great changes, Morris has been a source of reliability and consistency as the team’s last line of defence and the best news of all, he has recently penned a deal to extend his time with the Gills.
“I’m honoured to be Player of the Year,” said Morris, speaking to the club website. “It’s nice to get this as it is voted for by the fans, I really appreciate it.
“It’s been a strange season for the club but there have been some great performances, especially in the second half of the season.
“The first half of the season was a different type of test, we had to stay mentally strong, we had to believe that when we came to January that we had the players in the dressing room to get the points, and we did.
“The award means a lot, it is a fantastic football club and to be awarded the Player of the Year, with some of the greats that have played here, it is something to look back on when you stop playing and really appreciate.
“I am also delighted to have my contract sorted and I am ready to go next season. I am looking forward to it. Hopefully there are some good times coming, it is something I want to be part of.”
