All the latest from the Globe
BOSS Jim Bentley says he is resigned to losing midfielder Gary McDonald but is confident of some better news to come in the next few weeks.
McDonald is the latest player who is to leave the club after being offered reduced terms for the new season following Nick Fenton and Will Haining who left at the end of last season.
Bentley said he has nothing but praise for McDonald and wishes him well for the future.
He said: "Gary has been the model professional and been terrific to work with. He is a great trainer with a fantastic attitude and has hardly missed a game since he has been here.
"Like Nick and Will he was a player I would have liked to have kept but he wasn't able to accept the terms we could offer and he has opted to look for another club and I hope he sorts out a deal soon.''
Looking at the remainder of the squad Bentley said he has offered new deals to Lewis Alessandra and Jordan Burrow while Danny Carlton will be training with the Shrimps in pre season to assess his fitness after the injury that saw him miss almost all of last season.
Chris Holroyd's loan spell will not be made permanent but Bentley is hoping for better news soon.
He said: "I have spoken to a few players and am hoping to be able to announce some deals soon which is good and I have spoken to a few more.
"I have hardly stopped since the season ended and although I've lost out on a couple of targets already there will be better news shortly.''
