Kenneth Godfrey "Kenny" Morgans (born 16 March 1939 in Swansea) is a former Welsh footballer. He signed for Manchester United on leaving school in the summer of 1955 and played on the youth team's right wing.

During the 1957-58 season he won himself a fixed place in the first team, at the expense of the older and more experienced Johnny Berry, and suffered minor injuries in the Munich air disaster, when still only 18 years old. He was the youngest player involved in the crash. Morgans was found unconscious amongst the debris by two journalists five hours after the official search was called off.

Although he made a full recovery following the crash and was back in the side before the end of the season, he never regained his form on the pitch, and left the club in 1961, having made 23 first-team appearances without scoring a goal. He later played in the lower divisions for Swansea Town and Newport County before retiring from football in 1967.
