Club saddened to hear about the death of former player Charlie Lea

THE club is saddened to hear about the death of former player Charlie Lea.

Charlie was one of the most popular players ever to turn out for Morecambe after signing from Preston in 1966.

He went on to make nearly 300 appearances for the Shrimps after being signed by player-manager Ken Waterhouse.

He was a regular in the side for the next six seasons and an integral member of the Lancashire Combination League winning sides in 1966-67 and 1967-68. 

His last game for Morecambe came on January 13, 1973 when he came on as a substitute in a 2-1 home defeat by Macclesfield Town. He left the club to join Lancaster City.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.
