Freddie Morris talking to fans after a match at the Old Spotted Dog

Popular midfielder Freddie Morris has sent a farewell message to Clapton fans after leaving the club.

The 28-year-old former Stevenage academy player has signed for Baldock Town after feeling his chances would be limited under new Tons boss Jonny Fowell.

Freddie told Clapton FC News: “Please can you pass my genuine thanks on to everyone for the support you’ve all given the team and myself since I’ve been at Clapton.

“It’s been a wonderful thing for myself and my family to be a part of and we’ll all stay proud Clapton supporters!”

Team-mate Kristian Haighton tweeted: “Sad to see not only a player leave but a friend! Shame I never got the play CM with the legend.”

Freddie played a key role in the Tons’ Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy triumph with a phenomenal performance in the final in a deeper role.

Despite regularly being asked to centre-back, he still scored 8 goals in 48 appearances, with a bullet header Newham perhaps the pick of the bunch. He also captained the Tons 9 times and grew a moustache.

Freddie also starred on a live interview last month on Fan TV, revealing how the Clapton fans had restored his love of football.

Baldock Town are ninth in the Spartan South Midlands League, but have played as many as seven fewer games than their rivals and would go top if they won their games in hand.

Freddie has previously played for Stotfold, Langford, Codicote and Biggleswade United in the same league.



  1. JF has got to go before he gets round to getting rid of Nathan Cook. It looks like he only wants players he’s brought in himself. He’s said he’s not interested in making friends, a pity, I think us Clapton fans would have given him a chance despite some pretty big misgivings but eight players that we’ve taken to our hearts shows to me that it’s his vision without even thinking of ours that could be a problem sooner rather than later. I always thought that of 14 applicants, Vince might have appointed JF as a deflecter shield so that we were more exercised with him than opposing Vince’s various shenanigans. This sorry state comes from not listening, not involving the fans. JF must go & go now.
