Centre half: David Morley
David Morley signed from Manchester City on 28th August 1998 for £10 000. During his time at City he scored one goal (on his league début against Bury) and played in three matches.
He was rated as one of the most promising prospects for the future but failed to impress City boss Joe Royle and was transfer-listed.
Alvin Martin said on BBC Essex that he had been watching Morley for some time and was impressed. He felt it was the right time to bring him in as Coleman was injured. Martin added that the club should look for players such as Morley and regard them as assets.
