Veteran striker Clinton Morrison has signed for Exeter City until the end of the season, according to the club’s official website.

The 36 year old Londoner signed for The Grecians initially on non contract terms in November 2014 and impressed Manager Paul Tisdale with his excellent fitness levels and work rate.

Morrison went on to make 25 appearances for the club after having his deal extended until the end of the 2014/2015 season.

Exeter City decided not to offer Morrison a new deal at the end of last season with the club looking to maintain their cautious playing budget but the former Republic of Ireland man was eventually asked to return to St James’ Park and was given another short term deal.

Morrision has mainly been used as a substitute this season and his experience is thought to be a huge benefit to The Grecians’ young squad. The striker has scored 2 goals this season including a stunning effort in a match against Stevenage in front of the Sky television camera’s.

Despite the striker’s ageing legs, Morrison’s wealth of playing experience is a luxury for any League 2 club to have with 36 international caps to his name and having represented 8 professional clubs during a 17 year playing career.

Morrison is looking to go into media work once he hangs up his boots and has already appeared on The Football League Show and Sky Sports.
