GARRY THOMPSON SIGNS

Garry Thompson is a Morecambe player once again.

28 June 2017

The 36-year-old, who will always be remembered for scoring the first goal in the Shrimps’ 2-1 Wembley win, has signed a one year contract from 1st July after being released by Wycombe, and can’t wait to get started.

He said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be honest. I’m so glad to be back.

“I was back at the club recently for the Wembley reunion and I just felt like I was home.

When I knew the manager was interested in me it was a no brainer to be honest. I loved playing with Jim and we have always kept kin touch and I’m looking forward to playing for him now.

“Morecambe means so much to me and I had a great relationship with the fans and I really want to do well for them next year. I know I’m 36 now but I have played about 150 games over the last three years I think I still have a lot to offer.’’

Manager Jim Bentley said: “Garry is a Morecambe legend and I’m sure the fans will be delighted to see him back at the club.

“Whenever we have played against him he has impressed me with his pace and power and I know he wants to do really well for the club.’’
