Reserves sign off on a high
A LAST GASP goal from Ryan Williams saw Morecambe end their Third Development League campaign on a high note.
A strong Morecambe side grabbed the only goal of the game two minutes from time when Ryan Williams fired a trademark 35 yard free kick to the top corner of the net.
Shrewsbury were first to threaten when striker Jeff Watkins fired in a low shot which Andreas Arestidou got right behind.
The Morecambe keeper was then called into action by Kaiman Andeson before Padraig Amond broke into the box at the other end with his deflected effort coming back off the near post.
Amond then went close again when his far post header was impressively blocked by home keeper Callum Burton as the first half ended goalless.
Town's youngsters opened the second half brightly with a well struck shot from Watkins turned around a post by Arestidou.
It was then Burton's turn to impress again when he kept out a close range effort from sub Danny Mitchley with his feet.
Mitchley, who played for Kendal this season, then lifted a shot from six yards well over the bar after a great run and cross from Marcus Marshall.
Shrewsbury hit back with winger Josh Ginnelly curling a shot narrowly wide from the edge of the penalty area before Kaiman Anderson fired narrowly wide.
Morecambe then went straight up the other end to score their 88th minute minute with Williams finding the top corner of the net from a 35 yard free kick.
Ginnelly almost struck a fine equaliser but his 30 yard free kick was tipped over the bar by Arestidou as the Shrimps held on for a narrow victory.
