Kevin Ellison extends Morecambe contract by a year

Morecambe forward Kevin Ellison has signed a one-year contract extension, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2014-15 season.

The 34-year-old joined the Shrimps on a free transfer in July 2011 after being released by Rotherham.

Ellison has made 92 league appearances for Morecambe, scoring 32 goals.

"Kev was the first player I signed and has proved to be fantastic to have around both on and off the field," boss Jim Bentley told the club website.

"He is the most committed player you could wish to have and has scored some great and important goals for us over the past couple of seasons.

"He is someone who motivates others as well and I'm delighted that he has signed up again.''
