Brian Ashton MBE has delivered a motivational talk to the Shrimps squad prior to this morning's training session at Lancaster University.

Shrimps boss Jim Bentley was thankful to the former England Rugby Head Coach, who helped guide England to the 2007 Rugby World Cup Final for his input. 

Bentley said: "Brian's a highly regarded sportsperson in this country, he's been at the top level in his sport and there's no better person to speak about the winning mentality.

"Although rugby is a very different sport to football, it shares the same fundamentals, the same mindset and I was pleased we could get Brian in today to give a talk to the players.

"He's been there and done it so it's very good of him to pass on some of his knowledge and help us to try and implement a winning mentality.

"It's been a very positive meeting this morning before the lads have gone out to training so many thanks to Brian for spending the time with us today."
