JACK Morrow is the latest player to commit his future to Avro FC - admitting it was the easiest decision to make.

Morrow, who joined the Vestacare Stadium in the summer of 2019, has announced that he will be returning to play under new managerial duo David Birch and Mike Norton

He previously played for Rochdale Sacred Heart before joining Avro and said his fondest memory so far was scoring the winner in the play-off final at Lincoln United.

Morrow said it was an easy decision to stay with the Flying Squad.

“It’s a football club like no other, full of genuinely good people who all want the best for each other,” he said.

“I get to play football week-in, week-out with some of my best mates.”

Morrow follows first-team captain Jake Cottrell who agreed to sign on for next season last week.

There has been further great news for fans as reliable shot-stopper, Grant Shenton, has confirmed he will be staying for the upcoming campaign.

Also committing their futures to Avro for the 2024/25 campaign are Kane Wallwork, Ethan Kershaw, Jamie Rother, Sam Rathbone, Liam Ellis and Geffry Ebhote.

Kane Hickman, who played for Avro as a youngster, is returning to the club, while Matty Crothers announced last month that he was leaving.

Meanwhile, Avro opened up their pre-season campaign with a 5-0 win at Holywell Town in northern Wales last Saturday.

The visitors came out firing from the first whistle and rapidly accumulated two goals thanks to the efforts of one of their trialists.

Holywell Town had their best chance of the match soon after when Shenton deflected a strong shot from the home side’s striker.

Another Holywell Town player got on to the rebound and fired a second strong effort that found the Avro keeper off the line.

One of the Avro defenders saved the day and managed to get a leg to it, stopping the ball from bouncing into the net.

The trialist who scored twice earlier was again in action as he was instrumental in the assist that led to Avro’s third goal before half time.

After the break, the Avro squad were again flying as the visitors continued to press the attack.

Their tenacity was awarded with another two goals before the full-time whistle.

Both sides wished each other the best for their respective season with an official from Holywell Town commenting on the strength of the Avro side.

Avro will be at home this weekend when they welcome Chadderton to the Vestacare Stadium for their first home pre-season fixture (3pm).
