Mellon Joins The Shrimps!

19 January 2023

Morecambe FC is pleased to announce the signing of highly-rated striker Michael Mellon on loan from Burnley.

A forward who has scored countless goals for the Clarets at youth team level, Mellon is also a Scotland youth international, having represented his country at U16 and U17 level.

The frontman signed his first professional contract at Turf Moor in February 2022, and links-up with the Shrimps until the end of the season.

On signing for Morecambe, Michael Mellon said:

"I'm feeling great and I'm excited to get the chance of playing first-team football here at Morecambe.

"I'm here to do a job and help the manager and the team any way I can. I can come in short, spin in behind and do whatever I can to score goals.

"I've done a couple of seasons with Burnley's U18's and U23's, and scored a fair few, so I'll be looking to do the same here at Morecambe between now and the end of the season."

Manager Derek Adams said:

"We've taken in another striker after Kieran Phillips went back to Huddersfield, and we're really pleased to welcome Michael here.

"He's done really well at youth team level with Burnley, and with a number of clubs interested in him, we're delighted he's decided to come to Morecambe.

"He scores goals, links-up play and runs in behind and it's a move that can hopefully work well for all parties."

Michael will be proudly sponsored by the Shrimps Trust between now and the end of the season.
