Blue liner Ryan Morgan is a product of the Chelmsford youth setup and made his senior debut in the NIHL South’s second tier with the Warriors aged just 16 in 2013/14. He remained in Essex until 2015/16 when he opted to continue learning his trade across the Atlantic with the Coldwater Falcons in the Greater Metro Junior A Hockey League (GMHL). He returned to the UK in 2016/17, and to the Warriors, however he also stepped up to represent the Chieftains in the NIHL South’s top tier.
A league restructure in 2017/18 saw Chelmsford withdraw from the NIHL South Division 1 but Ryan Morgan remained by penning a deal with the Dynamos in Kent. In his debut season with the Mos the ‘stay at home’ defenceman featured in 40 games and claimed 8 assists. Last term he then opted to continue in Gillingham for 2018/19 and was the only player on the club’s roster to feature in every one of 46 fixtures – avoiding injury and suspension as well as demonstrating great commitment to the side. In those outings Morgan managed another 5 assists. Now the battling blue liner will hope to continue his ever present record as he completes a deal which keeps him in a Dynamos jersey for a third consecutive term.
“It’s great to be welcoming Ryan back for another year. He’s still only young but has some great experience under his belt already. He’s rightly popular with the fans for his work ethic and commitment to the team and he’s the type of player that rarely takes the headlines but is solid, reliable and ever present. It’s those underrated guys that are really important to a team. I can trust Ryan to do his job and battle hard every week. I’m expecting 2019/20 to be a big year for him.”
