Shrimps net Grimshaw

Morecambe bolstered their defence on loan deadline day by adding Manchester United teenager Liam Grimshaw to their squad.

Grimshaw, 19, has penned terms on a youth loan for the rest of the campaign at the Globe Arena and is looking to make the step up to first-team football after captaining United's academy sides.

"We played against United in a friendly a few weeks ago and Liam was part of their team," boss Jim Bentley explained on the Shrimps' official website.

"He is highly regarded and has a fantastic attitude and desire, and I am delighted that we will have him with us for the rest of the campaign."
