SHRIMPS’ boss Jim Bentley says he wishes Aaron Collins well after last season’s top scorer joined Forest Green.
Bentley was keen to keep Collins at the Globe Arena only for the former Wolves man to opt for a move to the Shrimps’ League 2 rivals.
Bentley said: “We were desperate to keep Aaron as we rate him very highly.
“We’ve tried to sign him a few times in the past and the chance came about at the end of the January transfer window and he had a fantastic few months in a Morecambe shirt, scoring some very important goals.
“We will always be very grateful for his contribution.”
He added: “We tried our very best to keep him at the club but unfortunately for us, it wasn’t to be.
“I like Aaron as a player and a person and I’m sure everyone connected with the club would like to wish him the very best of luck for the future at his new club.”
