Midfielder puts pen to paper

30 May 2019

ANDY Fleming has become the second Morecambe player to sign a new deal this week.

The long serving midfielder joined A-Jay Leitch-Smith in signing a new contract after agreeing a one year deal with another year option depending on appearances.

Speaking about Fleming, who joined the Shrimps in 2010 and has made more than 300 appearances for the club, boss Jim Bentley said: “Andy has been a great servant and is highly respected throughout the club and we’re really pleased he’s agreed to stay with us.

“He had a bad injury last season but proved before and after the injury that he is a top class player at this level and was arguably one of our best players when fit.

“He’s fully recovered now after working extremely hard to get back to full fitness and we’re expecting him to have a good season.’’

Fleming, 30, said he was delighted to be extending his stay at the club.

He said: “Once the gaffer offered me a new deal there was never any doubt.

“I have been here for some years now and have always enjoyed it. Last season was a disappointment on the whole personally because of the injury but that has made me more determined to do well next season.

“I came back towards the end of the year and we did really well. We played some great football and picked up some good results and I’m hoping we carry on that form into the new season.''
