Goalkeeper Adam Smith has today re-signed for Morecambe FC on a one-year deal.
Smith, who originally signed for The Shrimps in February 2022, returns after agreeing new terms at the Mazuma Stadium following the expiration of his last deal.
Adam has been a vital part of the goalkeeping department, in a strong contest with Connor Ripley for the No.1 jersey at the Mazuma Stadium last term. In his career to date, Smith has made 256 appearances gaining an EFL Team of the Season appearance in 2015-16 and a PFA Team of the Year appearance in 2015-16 for League Two while at Northampton Town.
On re-signing Adam, Manager Derek Adams has said, “Adam was a great part of the group last season and had it not been for the form of Connor Ripley would have likely played more games. This is a different opportunity for him now and we look forward to having him back at Morecambe as part of our squad for 2023/24.”
“This season Adam will have a real opportunity to push on and try to make the starting spot his. It is up to him to make that happen and we will continue to support and push him all the way.”
Signing his new one-year deal the Mazuma, Adam said, “I am delighted to be back. Morecambe really felt like a home over the last 18 months and it’s just great to be committed for the next season.”
“Obviously last season I was involved with the academy as well and you really have to throw yourself in to being part of the club and community at a club like Morecambe, which is what I like about being here. I want to step on this season and look forward to what the new season holds for us all.”
*Subject to EFL clearance, contract from 1st July 2023.
