Biography:
Sammy Morrow first came to prominence as a schoolboy when, as captain, he scored the equaliser in a 2-1 win over Wales that gave Northern Ireland their first ever Victory Shield title.

One of the many players left in limbo following the financial meltdown of Derry City in the autumn of 2009, Morrow was left without a club and five months wages. He joined Dunfermline on a trial basis in late-December, and reportedly signed a contract towards the end of January. However, on the 5th February it was then revealed that he had been signed by Coleraine on an 18-month deal.

Previously Morrow played in Scotland with Hibernian, but his career was hampered by a cruciate ligament injury. After being released by Hibs in 2007 he joined hometown club, Derry City. He scored a hattrick in the 6-1 2008 League of Ireland Cup Final win over Wexford Youths and the following season collected an FAI Cup runner-up medal despite scoring twice in the final as Bohemians won on penalties.

In March 2010 Morrow was given a three month suspension by FIFA after admitting betting on a number of games in which he was involved. In the summer of 2010 he joined Tranmere Rovers on trial with a deal completed for an undisclosed fee a few days before the close of the transfer window. Having failed to make an impact at Prenton Park he was allowed to leave the following summer, joining Ross County of the Scottish First Division early in the 2011/12 season and he helped them to promotion to the top-flight for the first time. He scored three times, notably in a 3-2 win over Celtic, as County secured a top-half finish.

Morrow was released in the summer of 2013. He later emerged at Linfield as one of Warren Feeney's first signings. He was released after a disappointing single season, returning for another spell at Coleraine shortly thereafter where once again he failed to live up to expectations. Morrow was released mid-way through the 2016/17 season to allow him to join Institute.
