George Tanner has been recalled by Manchester United and will return to his parent club immediately.

The 20-year-old signed on a season-long loan on 16th August and has featured regularly for the Shrimps at both right and left full-back.

"It's been a great experience playing for Morecambe," Tanner said.

"I managed to play 28 games, which is more than I expected to play when I first arrived.

"I played 20 games in the whole of last season so to play 28 already this season has been very good for me."

Tanner has completed 2563 in-game minutes during his spell with the Shrimps, averaging 96 minutes per appearance.


Despite the Shrimps' league position, Tanner has enjoyed his spell with the club and believes the experience has been positive.

He added: "I think for my career it's been good to experience a relegation battle, hopefully I don't have to experience one again but it has been a real learning curve for me so I'm glad to have experienced it.

"It's been great to meet the bunch of lads that are here, I think Morecambe is a great football club and what we have here is special.

"I've loved spending the time with the players and the coaches ever since the day I arrived.

"I'll definitely be looking out for the results, I want the lads to do well and I hope they don't go down. I don't think they will because the team has a great spirit."

Everyone at Morecambe Football Club wishes George all the best for the future.
