Morecambe's 40-year-old forward Kevin Ellison has signed a new one-year deal with the League Two club.

He scored seven goals in 2018-19 as the Shrimps finished 17th, 13 points clear of the relegation zone.

Ex-Rotherham man Ellison was one of two 40-year-olds to make an appearance in the EFL last season - he is 23 days younger than Crawley's Dannie Bulman.

"I have had 20 seasons now as a professional and I am still as hungry as ever," Ellison said.

Ellison has scored 86 goals in eight years with Morecambe.
