We are delighted to report that left-back Lewis Strapp has today penned a contract extension to commit himself to the club until 10 June 2022.
Dunoon-born Lewis joined our youth academy upon its inception in 2012, progressing through the ranks before earning his first professional deal in December 2015, shortly after his 16th birthday.
His senior debut followed at the beginning of the 2016/17 season when he was handed his first start in a Betfred Cup group tie away at Albion Rovers and he has since gone on to make a total of 29 first-team appearances for the Ton.
The 19-year-old also spent time out on loan with Elgin City and Annan Athletic, for whom he made 24 appearances and helped reach the final of the Ladbrokes League One promotion play-offs last term.
Speaking exclusively to gmfc.net, manager David Hopkin said: “I am delighted that Lewis has committed his future to the club for the next two and a half years.
“It is imperative when building a team to secure young talent as we have done with Reece Lyon and now Lewis Strapp.
“I’d like to thank the board and Morton Club Together for their support in ensuring we got this deal over the line.
“I look forward to continuing to work and help Lewis develop as a player and I have every confidence that he will show further improvements playing in a Morton jersey.”
