Morris started his football career with Haycroft Rovers in the Grimsby League, then Grimsby Rovers before joining Second Division Grimsby Town in February 1906. He played twenty League games and two F.A. Cup ties before moving to the South Coast with Southern League Brighton and Hove Albion in May 1907. He stayed with Brighton & Hove Albion until February 1909 when he followed Manager Frank Scott-Walford to Leeds City. He was an instant hit at Elland Road and soon proved to be a fine Captain and was recognized as the best Centre Half in the Second Division. He remained at Leeds for four seasons before joining Non-League Scunthorpe & Lindsey United in 1913 as Player-Coach. He was soon on the move, however, and in May 1914 he moved to Coventry City, where he rejoined Frank Scott-Walford. He wasn’t long at Highfield Road either as World War One brought the Football League fixtures to an end. He joined the Army in March 1915 and was killed in action, while serving as a sergeant in the 2nd Battalion, Lincolnshire Regiment.
