Aaron Morley makes first-team debut...

Aaron Morley has become the latest Academy player to make his first-team debut, after starting in Tuesday night’s Checkatrade Trophy tie against Notts County at the Crown Oil Arena.

The 16-year-old, who is a first-year scholar, played the full 90 minutes against the Magpies. 

Commenting on his debut, Manager Keith Hill, commented: “It was brilliant to be able to play Aaron tonight. He has deserved it. 

“And that’s the processes we go through at the football club. 

“Age isn’t a concern for me. It’s the ability and the process of putting that ability into performances, and I think Aaron can do that.

“Aaron has not only completed 90 minutes tonight, I thought he was excellent. 

“His passing is as good as you’re going to get at any level, not just this level. It’s like slo-mo time when he gets the ball, but trust me, the processes he goes through are very, very quick and are in timing with the Premier League, so if he adds to that then there could be a talent there for the football club.”
