Meanwhile, Morris signs for Sekhukhune from Cape Town City. The 28-year-old goalscorer started his football career with Ajax Cape Town Youth Academy in Ikamva from amateur club Juventus FC. He represented the Urban Warriors in several youth tournaments and was part of the winning squads during the Metropolitan Under-19 Premier Cup and the Copa Amsterdam held in 2013.

Morris was promoted to the first team of Ajax Cape Town, now known as Cape Town Spurs, during the preparation for the 2013/14 Premier Soccer League (PSL) campaign. He made his league debut as a substitute against Kaizer Chiefs on 5 November 2013 and scored a winning goal in a 1–0 victory.
