Morecambe

Currently Playing In:

Football League Division Two

 

Competitive football for Morecambe F C began in 1920 in the Lancashire Combination and the club remained in county football until becoming founder members of the Northern Premier League in 1968. After an excellent third place in the first campaign, Morecambe took their time to join the challengers at the top of the league and it wasn’t until the mid eighties that, under the management of Joe Wojciechowicz and Bryan Griffiths, that top ten finishes were achieved.

In fact three consecutive third place finishes in the early nineties, prepared the club for a serious championship challenge which was finally completed as runners-up in 1995 when champions Marine’s ground wasn’t considered up to Conference standard.

Jim Harvey led the club through eleven exciting Conference years with only two finishes outside the top ten. Sadly, ill health had forced him to hand over to Sammy McIlroy when the club achieved its great ambition by winning the play off final in 2007. Morecambe moved up proudly to take their place in The Football League with their splendid new home at The Globe Arena.
