Joe Morrell, Wales and Portsmouth, has become a co-owner of Southern League Premier team Merthyr Town.

Merthyr Town is a fan-owned club, and Morrell became one of the 180 owners this week – as announced on Twitter.

The Martyrs play in the seventh tier of the English football pyramid – in the Southern Premier League south.

Merthyr Town became fan-owned in 2010, when Merthyr Tydfil FC liquidated.

Other big names are also involved with the club, such as Line of Duty star Vicky McClure alongside fiance Jonny Owen – who is from Merthyr.

The club are back competing this season after being mothballed in the 2020-21 season due to the corona-virus pandemic
