Carlton Morris on defeat at Wembley

8 April 2018

Carlton Morris is determined to use Wembley disappointment as fuel for future challenges after Shrewsbury Town were beaten by Lincoln City in the Checkatrade Trophy final on Sunday.

The forward was part of a Town side - alongside fellow Canary Ben Godfrey - who went down to a cruel 1-0 loss in front of just over spectators in the capital.

"It's a bitter pill to swallow," Morris told after the match.

"To get a full game there was a good experience. All in all though, it's a pretty upsetting day.

"We won't be slouching after this. We will concentrate on the league.

"Winning here would have been brilliant. It was the goal coming here but we've got to focus on the next prize."

The frontman was one of the final Shrewsbury players to leave the pitch, staying for the bulk of Lincoln's trophy presentation.

"I wanted to see what I'd missed out on," the 22-year-old explained.

"Having done that, I know I don't want to go through that again. That's why I stayed there, taking it all in.

"I've got to get used to playing on stages like this. It's where I'm hoping to be in the future.

"It was a good experience, but we're disappointed."
