The Crawley Town FC number one volunteered to join in an online session last week to support participants from our Crawley Town Performance Academy, answering questions on the team’s daily training routine, what it takes to become a pro, as well as revealing his matchday tips, among many more topics.
Following the conclusion of the session, Morris said: ‘It was a pleasure to join the group for their weekly call. We are all dealing with this situation in our own way and keeping in contact is crucial so it is great to see the Crawley Town Performance Academy creating these opportunities.
‘As players we are always keen to support the community and if this helped in some way, I am delighted to do so.’
With social distancing measures in place following the coronavirus outbreak, people have been asked to follow government guidelines and stay home to help control the virus.
This has meant the Crawley Town Performance Academies’ daily football sessions, and other traditional football opportunities, have temporarily come to a stop so the players and their coaches have been working on new and innovative ways to support our scholars.
Director of Football Kevin Spriggs who joined the call said: ‘It was brilliant to have Glenn volunteer his time and join the players. They gained a valuable insight and are enjoying the weekly chats and to add a current senior player with over 400 appearances to reflect on was a real boost.
‘They are passionate about football and really missing the sessions but we have worked hard to bring them together online to ensure they stay connected.’
