Glenorchy Knights will sign Metro youngsters Jeremy Morris and Geoff Wicks tomorrow.

The pair needs to be signed by lunchtime on Thursday to be eligible to play on Friday night against New Town Eagles.

Morris is a striker and Wicks is a defender for the League One club.

Glenorchy Knights coach, Nick Harrison, watched the pair play in the first half for Metro against University on Saturday before making a final decision on whether or not to sign them.

“They trained with us last night and we’ll go through the process of signing them on Wednesday,” said Harrison this evening.

“We lost Amadu Koroma to Melbourne Knights at the beginning of the year and Matthew Nowicki is joining the army next week, so we need more numbers.”

Neither player has Premier League experience and Harrison said he was likely to play Morris and Wicks in the reserves on Friday.

Central defender Alex Holmes will return from suspension and defender-cum-midfielder Jacob Huigsloot after recovering from injury, so senior places will be at a premium.

Defender Sam Johnson, signed from Taroona, and striker Tom Sherman have only been able to gain places as substitutes in recent weeks, which indicates the Knights do have some depth.
