A Dream Come True - Aaron Morley

28 June 2019

Aaron Morley says although he has had offers from other clubs this summer, he was keen to extend his stay at the Crown Oil Arena and play under Brian Barry-Murphy.

Speaking after signing a new three-year deal, the 19-year-old told www.rochdaleafc.co.uk: “To extend my stay here for another three years is just a dream come true.

“I’ve been here for four years, and being only 19, it’s great to have come through the Youth Team, progressed into the first team and have earned a second contract.

“Brian Barry-Murphy was a huge factor in me deciding to stay, 100%. I’ve had offers from other clubs, but I wanted to play here. I believe in Brian and I believe that he’s going to give me my chance - I just need to take it.

“This next season is a big one for me. I just need to show him [BBM] that I can do it, and hopefully by next season I can be a regular starter.”

Morley says he has returned for pre-season in good shape and is looking forward to the week-long training camp in Portugal.

“I’m feeling quite good and quite strong, so I can’t wait to get the season started.

“I’ve been to Tenerife twice before and will be going to Portugal this time, which is a good chance for us and I can’t wait.”
