Spireites Sign Sam Morsy From Port Vale.

Spireites Sign Sam Morsy From Port Vale.

Sam Morsy 21, born in Wolverhampton, spent 9 years in the academy at Wolves before being released at the age of 16, he then joined the youth set up at Port Vale. He made 72 appearances for Port Vale scoring 4 goals, he played a part in helping them gain promotion to League One last season. Morsy talking to the club website said: 'I know the ambition of the club and I want to be part of it. I've known the manager for a number of years and I know his philosophy. That was a big factor in my decision to sign.'

Paul Cook told the club website: 'He's a very tenacious central midfielder who can handle the ball and drive forward. He's got that little bit of devilment in him that we'll need to curb at times but good players have that.

'He's a good age and he comes in with a desire to get better. When we found out that he may be available, we moved heaven and earth to get him here. '

He received 9 yellow cards and 1 red card during the 2012/13 season while playing for Port Vale. I think it will be important for Cook to keep him in check, but at the same time he will need to keep the fire that he has in his belly, hopefully Cook can have a calming influence on him, also the fact that they know each other could be another key factor in getting the best out of the player.

The club have made key changes this season, they have changed the back room staff and brought in a wealth of experience. They have made big signings, Roberts, Ryan and now Morsy shows the ambition of the club, they are doing everything they can to make sure they achieve promotion next season.

Sam Morsy has been described as an 'enforcer' he's the type of player we have needed in midfield for the last couple of seasons. He's got a great ability to time tackles and break up play. We have lacked steel in midfield, someone that can take the game by scruff of the neck and drive the team forward.

Welcome to the Spireites Sam Morsy, we look forward to seeing you play for us next season, thanks for choosing to play for our club.
