THE Shrimps have welcomed another old boy back into the fold.
After the signing of Shaun Miller on Wednesday Lewis Alessandra has rejoined the club after being released by Notts County in the summer.
Boss Jim Bentley says he is sure Alessandra’s return will give everyone at the club a boost.
He said: "Lewis we know very well from his time with us earlier in his career and he’s done pretty well since he left the club.
"I’m pleased to have him back on board now and think he gives our squad a real lift.
"He’s a talented individual who can play anywhere across the front line and even played well for Notts County earlier last season from a midfield role.
"He’s fit and well, can score and create goals and I’m sure our supporters are looking forward to seeing him back in a Morecambe shirt.
"We wish Lewis good luck for the coming season.’'
Alessandra, 30, spent two seasons with the Shrimps between June 2011 and June 2013 after signing from Oldham and made more than 60 appearances before moving to Plymouth where he scored 25 goals in close to 100 appearances.
After a short spell at Rochdale he has played for York City on loan, Hartlepool and Notts County.
