Morgan, 21, had his contract cancelled after a less-than-impressive stint at Vauxhall Road which saw him fail to find the net once as he struggled to force his way into the starting XI.

His latest failure represents a big fall from grace for Morgan, who was once described by Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler as ‘one of the best finishers I have seen in a long time.’

Morgan joined Hemel at the start of February after leaving League Two side Accrington Stanley by mutual consent. The youngster signed for Stanley in June but managed only two League Two appearances.

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.

Morgan’s final Hemel appearance came in Tuesday night’s lacklustre Herts Charity Cup defeat to St Albans at Clarence Park.
