Jim Bentley has paid tribute to a long serving member of his backroom staff.

Anne Taylor, who has worked as a sports therapist for the club for more than 15 years, has left because of extra work commitments.

Bentley said: "Anne has been with us for a long time and been an excellent servant for the club.

"She was with us in the Conference days was with us when we won at Wembley. She has been an important member of the medical team throughout our football league days too.

"Over the years she has worked hard to gain more and more qualifications and has this has helped her develop her career.

"She was great to have around and a great help with the players and we all wish her the best of luck in the future.''

Anne has recently graduated and gained some high level qualifications and is setting up her own business in Morecambe.

She said: It has been a privilege to work with the club for 17 years.

"When I started in 1999 it was pretty rare for a woman to be involved in football and I have to thank the club and the directors for showing me their support then and over the years since.

"To be involved and be there when the club won at Wembley and in its first years in the Football League was brilliant and I will have memories that will last a lifetime.

"To cap it all it is great that one of my "chicks'' as I used to call them, Garry Thompson, who I looked after when he was a student at Lancaster and Morecambe College all those years ago, has returned after all these years.''
