MIDFIELDER Kieron Morris tasted Wembley success on Saturday when his Tranmere Rovers side beat Newport County 1-0 after extra-time in the League Two play-off final.

The 24-year-old, from Leominster, learnt his trade as a youngster with Lads Club and the Hereford United Centre of Excellence.

He was signed for Walsall in 2013 and has been out on loan at National League sides Leamington and Wrexham.

This season he was sent out on loan to Tranmere Rovers making 14 appearances.

Morris started in the play-off final against Newport and almost scored the opening goal, but was denied by a sliding tackle.

He was substituted in the 82nd minute of the final shortly before Newport were reduced to 10-men.

His side eventually won courtesy of a Connor Jennings goal in extra-time.

Morris will be looking for a new side this summer after being released by Walsall earlier this month.

l There was more Wembley success for another former Hereford player on Sunday.

Ex-defender Dean Smith and former Bulls manager Richard O'Kelly were in the Aston Villa dug-out for their 2-1 Championship play-off victory over Derby County.

Villa manager Smith made 117 appearances for Hereford United between 1994 and 1997.

Meanwhile Villa assistant head coach O'Kelly was Bulls manager in 2012 after previously serving as assistant under Graham Turner.
