Biography


Morrow, who was raised in Limavady, County Londonderry, started as a youth at Institute FC before beginning his professional career at Ipswich Town where he made his debut as an 18-year old in a Carling Cup versus Notts County. In the summer of 2004, Tony Mowbray signed Morrow for Hibernian, having known him from his time as the Ipswich assistant manager. Morrow only started five league matches in his first season with Hibs, but proved to be useful as a substitute, scoring goals in wins against Dundee and Dundee United.

Morrow was loaned to Livingston during the 2005–06 season which proved very successful, with goals against Hearts and Dundee Utd. Gary Waddock, then Queens Park Rangers manager along with his assistant Alan McDonald wanted to bring Morrow south of the border and a deal was close to completion when disaster struck with him suffering cruciate ligament damage in April 2006. This was also a major blow to Morrow as he was already named in the full Northern Ireland squad to face Romania and Uraguay that summer. He started a further loan spell, with Partick Thistle, in March 2007 to help aid his comeback from the long term injury. At the end of the 2006–07 season Morrow was given a free transfer by Hibs, and he subsequently signed for Derry City.

In 2008 he scored a hat-trick in the League of Ireland Cup final, and was named Man of The Match, when Derry beat Wexford 6–1, to win the competition for the 9th time. He also scored both of Derry's goals in the 2008 FAI Cup Final, a game that was subsequently lost on penalties to League of Ireland champions Bohemians. Morrow opted to leave Derry City after the club was relegated for financial irregularities.

In January 2010, Morrow was expected to join Dunfermline Athletic, on a 6-month deal, but instead he opted to sign an 18-month contract with Coleraine.

On 30 August 2010, Morrow signed a one-year contract with English League One club Tranmere Rovers. At the end of the 2010–11 season he was not offered a new contract by the club.

On 16 June 2011, Morrow signed up with Ross County. This proved to be a successful move for Morrow as he was part of the 1st Division winning team that set a new Scottish record by going 40 league games unbeaten subsequently getting promoted to the SPL. The following season he played a key role for Ross County by securing a top 6 finish in the clubs debut season in the top flight. Morrow scored some important goals against St Mirren, St Johnstone and more impressively in the 3–2 win against SPL champions Glasgow Celtic.

In May 2014, Morrow signed a one-year deal at Linfield, playing in Northern Ireland's NIFL Premiership. He was Warren Feeney's first signing as Linfield manager.
