Glenn Morris reckons joining Crawley was one of the best decisions he has ever made.

Even though he didn’t intend it to be as their first-choice goalkeeper.

The in-form No.1, pictured above, is looking for a big finish as Reds go into their final four fixtures, starting at home to Coventry tomorrow.

He has played in all but one of his side’s League Two games and underlined his form with a stunning save from Port Vale goal-getter Tom Pope last Saturday.

That is quite a turnaround for the man hired going into last season by then boss Dermot Drummy as coach.

Morris’s remit was to work with Yusuf Mersin and Mitch Beeney and act as cover.

It soon became apparent he was the most reliable option between the sticks, something which has not changed under Harry Kewell.

Morris told The Argus: “It has been a really good move, probably the best thing I’ve ever done to accept that role.

“I was looking to go into coaching but I probably went a bit too early.

“I know (Drummy’s former assistant) Matt Gray and he recommended me to Dermot.

“If it wasn’t for that I wouldn’t have taken a coaching role that early in my career. I’ve ended up playing a lot of games and I’m happy to be playing every game.

“I’ve been fairly pleased with my form.”

Morris still helps take training on a daily basis.

But the fact he signed a new deal in January taking him up to the end of the 2019-20 season shows there is a lot yet to come as a player.

He hopes and believes there could be some success within that time frame after Reds made progress this season.

The 34-year-old former Leyton Orient keeper said: “Hopefully that is the way we are going.

“Maybe it was a little bit of a missed opportunity this season but, from where we were, we have probably exceeded a few people’s expectations.

“From the position we then got ourselves into, we have had a little bit of a dip or bad luck but we have got to be pleased with the progress we have made.”

Even as a senior pro, you can always develop.

For Morris that has meant more responsibility with the ball at his feet given Kewell’s preferred way of playing.

Morris said: “That’s the way we play. It’s different to what I’ve been used to but I feel it has taken my game to a different level.

“There is more pressure on the goalkeeper when you are playing out. It’s on me to start things going and I know sometimes certain fans might want me to kick it upfield.”
