Goals from Jordan Cranston and Rhys Oates saw the Shrimps beat Everton's Under 23 side 3-1 at Finch Farm in this afternoon's behind closed doors friendly match.

The Shrimps took the lead midway through the first half through Jordan Cranston's penalty after a Morecambe trialist's cross struck the hand or former Shrimps loanee Antony Evans in the Penalty area.

Morecambe could have had a second when Alex Kenyon's looping header hit the crossbar and fell back into the goalkeeper's hands.

Jordan Cranston's deflected cross saw the Shrimps double their lead after the break before substitute Rhys Oates slotted the third at the near post after regaining possession on the edge of the Everton penalty area.

Manasse Mampala pulled a goal back for the hosts with a back-post header 10 minutes from time, the game finished 3-1.
