Barrow 0, Morecambe 1 (Full time)
A JACK Redshaw goal on seven minutes gives the Shrimps victory at Holker Street tonight.
Redshaw scored from close range after some good work from Joe Mwasile down the right hand side and although he failed to get a clean connection with his final shot it beat Danny Hurst low to his right.
Hurst was called upon to make good saves from Mwasile and Joe McGee before Barrow had a great chance of levelling when one of their "trialists'' failed to connect with a header from close range.
Danny Carlton also went close for the Shrimps with a 25 yard effort that dipped just over the bar.
The second half started with Morecambe substitute keeper Ben Woodhead making a smart save low to his right and former Shrimps' striker Matty Blinkhorn scuff a good chance as the home side enjoyed a period on top.
But Morecambe settled back into the game and went close themselves with Carlton forcing an excellent save from Danny Hurst with a close range header.
Andy Fleming was also denied by a smart Hurst save on 68 minutes but neither side could find the target in the remainder of the game.
Jim Bentley made 10 changes for the team as Morecambe face a side including former Shrimps' players Matty Blinkhorn and Garry Hunter who were named as trialists.
