Morrell and Lemonheigh-Evans sign contract extensions

Midfielders Joe Morrell and Connor Lemonheigh-Evans have signed two-year contract extensions until June 2021.

The Robins also have an additional one-year option on the deals for the Wales Under-21 pair.

Morrell has made two impressive appearances for City this season – as a second-half replacement in the 3-2 victory at Ipswich and a man-of-the-match start in the Emirates FA Cup Third Round 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

Evans is currently in his second loan spell with Torquay United who are currently leading National Conference South.

City Head Coach Lee Johnson said: “Both Joe and Connor are developing well and we are pleased to secure them on contract extensions.

"Joe applies himself brilliantly in training every day and has waited patiently for his chances, which he has taken well. Connor is progressing at Torquay and getting first team football which is what he needs at this stage of his career.”
