Steve Morison's Shrewsbury loan becomes permanent

Former Lions captain signs for League One side following loan switch

8 August 2019

Former Millwall captain Steve Morison's season-long loan move to Shrewsbury Town has been made a permanent deal.

The striker's move to Montgomery Waters Meadow signals an end to his legendary Lions career, spanning a total of seven years across three separate spells - tallying 335 appearances and 92 goals.

Having made the initial loan move back in June - joining up with former Wales international teammate Sam Ricketts - Morison made his Shrews debut on the opening weekend of the EFL season, helping his side to a 1-0 home win over Portsmouth in Sky Bet League One.

The 35-year-old returns to a division in which he formed The Lions' iconic strike partnership with Lee Gregory - the duo firing 36 League goals between them in the 2015/16 season and 32 in the successful following campaign - Morison then netting the memorable decisive goal at Wembley against Bradford City to steer the club into Championship football once more.

Morison's goalscoring exploits saw him place joint-fifth on the all-time list of Lions marksmen, scoring his final goal for the club at the Cold Blow Lane End of The Den - a crucial winner against Wigan Athletic.

Off the field, Morison also acted as the club captain and was recognised for his outstanding work in the community by being named PFA Community Champion of the Year at last season's End of Season Awards Night, whilst he is also an Ambassador for Show Racism the Red Card.

Everyone at Millwall would like to reiterate our thanks to Steve for his outstanding contribution to the club.
