Morris on trial with Dundalk
FORMER Ireland U21 and Newcastle United man Callum Morris (inset) could revive his career in the League of Ireland if he can win a contract with Dundalk.
The English-born defender was highly rated as a teenager, winning Irish U21 caps alongside players like Seamus Coleman and James McCarthy, but he struggled to establish himself after he was released by Newcastle United and spent time in the English non-league scene. And now he's on trial with Dundalk and hopes to win a contract.
"Callum has done well in training," said Dundalk boss Sean McCaffrey.
"Callum has six U21 caps for Ireland and he played three times in the Newcastle first team, so he's not a mug.
"But his confidence in the last year or two has dipped. We'll see how things pan out for him and us."
Meanwhile, Derry City boss Declan Devine has snapped up defender Simon Madden from Dundalk.
