Morris initially began riding on a 150cc machine in 2006 and, under the guidance of former Buxton rider Neil Painter, he eventually moved on to a full 500cc machine in 2008, when he initially used Dan Greenwood’s steed at King’s Lynn on a practice day. Injuries curtailed his participation in that year’s British Under-15 Championship and, in fact, limited him to a solitary appearance in the first round at Stoke on 10 July.He chipped a bone in his hip in this meeting and then broke his wrist at Coventry.Ash joined Scunthorpe in 2009 and completed 15 matches for the Saints, he won the under 15 Championship at Northside in September.

Signed for Dudley Heathens late in January 2010. On his 16th birthday in May he signed for Wolverhampton but would stay on loan to Dudley. Late in August he also signed for Edinburgh he stayed with the side for the rest of the season and picked up a League winners medal on the way.In December 2010 Ash signed once again for Dudley and also for Edinburgh, though he was released by Edinburgh late in April after a string of low scores.  He was offered a place with Leicester on July 2nd but was left badly bruised following a very rough track at Belle Vue on July 13th.At the end of July he was one of the Heathens squad to win the Fours at Stoke to add to the National Shield won earlier in the season.
Ash was taken to New Cross hospital during the match with Mildenhall with concussion following a crash with Lewis Blackbird. He was released later that night after being thoroughly examined and given the all clear.
Ash joined Workington in 2011 staying with the Dudley team up to 2012 where he won a League Championship medal as captain of the all conquering Heathens in 2013, dropping just 2 points over both legs of the play-off Final.
Came back to the Heathens in 2016 to form a very successful partnership with Max Clegg.  He also doubled up with Newcastle in the premier League and Wolves in the Elite.
