Ross County boost strike force with Sam Morrow

DEREK Adams yesterday completed Ross County's sixth summer signing with the capture of Sam Morrow from Tranmere Rovers.

The former Hibernian and Derry City striker, who also had a loan spell at Livingston during the County manager's time there, agreed a two-year contract with the First Division club.

Morrow, 26, will now battle it out for a striking berth with fellow front men Colin McMenamin, Kurtis Byrne, Steven Craig and Garry Wood.

County manager Adams said: "Sam is an athletic six-footer and will blend in well with the other strikers we have. It's another option for us in the forward area.

"Obviously last season, there weren't enough goals scored. Now we have different options in the forward positions which can only help. There's an added variety there and hopefully we can score more goals."

Morrow began his career as a youth at Ipswich, before joining Hibs under Tony Mowbray in 2004. Loan spells at Livingston and Partick preceded the Derry-born goalscorer's return to his native land in 2007. The striker also picked up four Northern Ireland under 21 caps.
