MORECAMBE have completed their first business of the close season with two youngsters signing one year deals.
Jim Bentley has signed 20-year-old Lamin Jagne and 19-year-old Carlos Mendes Gomes after the pair impressed in the Reserves on trial in recent weeks.
The duo, who have come through the Development Centre based at The Manchester College run by Darren Finch and Bill Prendergast, have played as trialists in Stewart Drummond’s reserve team games throughout 2018 and have impressed both Drummond and Bentley.
Bill Prendergast said: “I haven’t seen anything like Carlos Mendes in all my years of developing players. He does things differently.
“He plays in a way that opens up defences and has an eye for goal.''
He added: "Lamin’s been in the professional game previously and came to me a few years ago. He’s physically able and can definitely compete technically.”
Lamin Jagne said: “I’m really pleased to sign. I’d like to thank everyone who helped me throughout this journey and thanks to the Manager, Jim Bentley, for putting his trust in me.”
Carlos Mendes Gomes added: “I’m looking forward to the new season and I hope it brings blessings and I achieve my targets for the club.”
