Jim Bentley has added centre half Alex Whitmore to his squad.
Whitmore, 20, signs until January on loan from Burnley. The centre half has impressed in training and his appearance for the Shrimps against Bamber Bridge.
The Newcastle born defender made 24 appearances for Gateshead in the Conference last season scoring twice.
Jim Bentley said: “Alex is a great lad who wants to work hard and do well in the game. He’s played at a good level last season in the Conference Premier and hopefully he can continue his progression with Morecambe Football Club.
“I’d like to thank Burnley Football Club for letting us take Alex on loan and hopefully in the time he’s with us he’ll become a better player.”
