A second half goal from Cole Stockton gave the Shrimps victory in an entertaining friendly against a very good side Workington side.
The winning goal came on 54 minutes after a swift breakaway. Jordan Slew raced away down the left-hand side and fed Carlos Mendes-Gomes who kept his cool in the box to tee up Cole Stockton for a neat close-range finish.
From there the Shrimps created a number of chances but were denied a second goal on several occasions by visiting keeper Jim Atkinson who made a string of fine saves.
He twice denied Stockton as he hunted down his second but his best save came with a tip-over from Slew’s close-range shot that was heading for the top corner.
Workington worked hard to get back into the game and there closest they came to getting an equaliser came when Robbie Hebson saw a long-range shot deflected over for a corner two minutes from time.
The first half saw few chances with the Shrimps having to work hard against a very good Workington side who enjoyed plenty of possession.
John O’Sullivan threatened a couple of times down the right side and Freddie Price almost sneaked in down the middle only to be blocked by a good block from the Workington defence.
The visitors produced plenty of decent moments of their own with an early effort from Conor Tinnion flying just wide and Dan Wordsworth seeing a free-kick well blocked by the Morecambe wall.
