Hemel Hempstead Town have competed the signing of former Liverpool striker Adam Morgan – once described by Reds legend Robbie Fowler as ‘one of the best finishers I have seen in a long time.’

Morgan, 21, joins Hemel after leaving League Two side Accrington Stanley by mutual consent. The youngster signed for Stanley in June but managed only two League Two appearances.

“It’s a shame for Adam that it hasn’t worked out for him here,” Accrington manager John Coleman told accringtonstanley.co.uk. “He is a good character around the place but he wants to play football.

“He dropped down the pecking order and both parties felt it would be best if he looked elsewhere. There is no animosity, he leaves with our best wishes and our thanks for his efforts.

“He obviously has a talent and can score goals and hopefully he will get the opportunity to do that somewhere else.”

Morgan is a product of Liverpool’s Youth Academy and scored 18 goals in 16 games in the Premier Academy League.

He spent his time between Liverpool’s U18s and reserves. He scored his first senior goal for the Reds in a friendly against Toronto and made his first senior start against Tottenham in July 2012.

He came on as a substitute in a Europa League qualifying match against Hearts, before having loan spells at Rotherham and then Yeovil, and it was the latter who signed him on a permanent deal in January 2014.

He went on loan to St Johnstone before returning to Yeovil and was offered a severance deal at the end of the 2014/15 season.
