THE Board of Directors at Morecambe FC has today announced a plan to rename the club's bar.
The facility at the Globe Arena is to be rebranded as JB's Bar in memory of Joseph Barnes (JB) Christie and in tribute to current manager Jim Bentley.
Director. Rod Taylor, said it was a decision that the Board unanimously agreed after consultation with fans.
He said: "We have been talking to fans about this for some time and had a few ideas.
"But the desire of supporters to recognise the club's patron JB Christie and Jim Bentley was really clear and we are delighted to support this.
"Work will start soon on rebranding the bar to create a fantastic area that will have a real link with the club's past and present.''
Mr Taylor also announced that a bar area will be built into the facilities at the back of the home supporters terrace.
"The Board has been drawing up plans to put in an area behind the goal for fans which will be a major boost to our facilities.
"Again we asked for input from supporters and, thanks to their suggestions, this is going to be called the Legends bar and will be an area where we will honour all those people who have played their part over the years to help the club.''
