Samuel Morrow (born 3 March 1985 in Derry, Northern Ireland), aka Sam Morrow or Sammy Morrow, is a professional football player currently playing for Scottish First Division side Ross County. Morrow, who was raised in Limavady, started as a youth at Institute FC before beginning his career at Ipswich Town were he made his debut as an 18 year old, but was released in 2004. He was then signed by former Ipswich coach Tony Mowbray for Hibernian while Mowbray was Hibs manager. Morrow only started five matches in his first season with Hibs, but proved to be useful as a substitute, scoring goals in wins over Dundee and Dundee United.

Morrow was loaned to Livingston during the 2005-06 season which proved very successful, with goals against Hearts and Dundee Utd. Gary Waddock, then Queens Park Rangers manager along with his assistant Alan McDonald wanted to bring Morrow south of the border and a deal was close to completion when disaster struck with him suffering cruciate ligament damage in April 2006. He started a further loan spell, with Partick Thistle, in March 2007 to help aid his comeback. At the end of the 2006-07 season Morrow was given a free transfer by Hibs, and he subsequently signed for Derry City.

In 2008 he scored a hat-trick in the League of Ireland Cup final, and was named Man Of The Match, when Derry beat Wexford 6-1, to win the competition for the 9th time. He also scored both of Derry's goals in the 2008 FAI Cup Final, a game that was subsequently lost on penalties to League Of Ireland champions Bohemians. Morrow opted to leave Derry City after the club was relegated for financial irregularities.

In January 2010, Morrow was expected to join Dunfermline Athletic, on a 6 month deal, but instead he opted to sign an 18 month contract with Coleraine.

On 30 August 2010, Morrow signed a one year contract with English League One club Tranmere Rovers. At the end of the 2010-11 season he was not offered a new contract by the club.

On 16 June 2011, Morrow signed up with Ross County.
