Young Ipswich Town striker Ben Morris is hungry for more after making his Championship debut recently.

The teenager made his first Blues appearance at Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup in August but made his Championship debut in the recent loss to Hull at Portman Road, before featuring again as a substitute at Bristol City on Saturday.

Morris, who signed a new deal until the summer of 2019 with the option of a 12-month extension earlier in the season, thanked manager Mick McCarthy and vowed to continue to work hard and make the most of any further opportunities he’s given.

“I’ve been working hard all season so I’m grateful the gaffer gave me a fantastic opportunity to play in the Championship,” Morris told the club website.

“Since I’ve been involved the senior guys have been brilliant and really welcomed me into the set up.

“My family are obviously very proud and they were at both games so I’m glad they saw me get onto the pitch. I’ll continue to work hard and should another opportunity arise I will make sure I do my best.”

Elsewhere, reserve goalkeeper Michael Crowe was an unused substitute as Wales beat the hosts 6-0 in the first game of the China Cup.
