“Curtis and Derek now have the opportunity to forge a career in the game with this club and they deserve the chance after applying themselves well over the last two years.

“We have unfortunately had to tell the other scholars that they are not being offered a contract, which is always a difficult thing to do. I would like to take this opportunity to wish them all the best for the future.”

Morrison is a striker from Sheffield while Daly, who hails from Ireland, can play as a left-sided midfielder or at left-back.
