Morecambe Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of defender Jacob Mensah on a one-year deal.
As well as making 26 appearances for Weymouth last season, Mensah has also represented Crystal Palace under 23’s.
The 20-year-old was also named as one of the best young players in Non-League football by the Non-League Paper in 2019.
“I’m absolutely buzzing,” said Mensah.
“It’s been a tough 18 months and it’s just nice to be able to get settled at a club.”
Speaking ahead of what will be the club’s debut season in Sky Bet League One, Mensah believes the side will be ready for the challenge.
“I can expect hard work as a team,” he added.
“We’re getting together as a team, there’s a good feel about the group and there’s nothing but hard work within this group and great talent as well so it’s going to be busy but it’s going to be exciting.”
Manager Stephen Robinson added: “He is a young man at only 20 years of age who we feel will continue to improve and develop the very good attributes he has shown to date in his career.
“Impressively he has already played over 100 games in men’s football but he is still very young and we firmly believe this is the perfect platform to continue his development.”
