Shrimps sign striker Holroyd

Morecambe have completed the signing of former Rotherham and Preston forward Chris Holroyd until the end of the season.

Holroyd was released by North End on January 5 and could make his Shrimps debut against Cheltenham in League Two on Friday night, providing the Globe Arena passes a 10am pitch inspection.

The 26-year-old makes Morecambe the ninth club of his career after scoring nine goals in 21 appearances for Blue Square Bet Premier outfit Macclesfield this term.
