'Keeper For Keeps

'Keeper For Keeps

Morecambe were given an end of season boost by the new that Barry Roche had agreed a new contract with the club.

Jim Bentley was 'desperate' for the 32-year-old to extend his stay with the club, where he's been since 2008, and in the lead up to the season finale with Bury the club were able to announce that a new two-year contract had been agreed.

An official statement said: 'The Shrimps have had some great news this afternoon with the news that Barry Roche has signed a new two year deal.

'Roche signed the deal this afternoon ahead of the Bury game.'

This is indeed great news!

Roche has been an excellent servant to Morecambe, both on and off the pitch, so if anyone isn't happy with this I'd be surprised, wouldn't you?

This site is looking for an editor (at least contributor), so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!

Bentley Rues Missed Chances

Manager Jim Bentley has rued wasteful finishing in the weekend's loss to Mansfield Town.

Stats: Mansfield Town v Morecambe

All the stats from Mansfield Town (2) vs (1) Morecambe, Field Mill, 6/2/16 Att: 3,090

Morecambe through the Mill. Again.

It`s less than two weeks ago since Morecambe entertained Mansfield in League Two at the Globe Arena. There, they took the lead and then tamely allowed the Stags to score twice in the dying minutes to take all three points back to Field Mill. The manner of the loss provoked a very uncharacteristic rant on live radio after the game from Shrimps` Manager Jim Bentley in which he accused members of his squad of being `weak` and said he would sell half of them immediately if such a thing was possible.
