Morecambe appoint Derek Adams as new manager

Former Plymouth Argyle boss Derek Adams has been unveiled as manager of League Two side Morecambe.

The 44-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal at the Globe Arena that will keep him at the club until 2022.

Barry Roche and Kevin Ellison will take charge of the team in Saturday’s FA Cup clash with Blackpool, but Adams will be in attendance.

With a League Two promotion and a seventh-placed finish in League One under his belt, Adams arrives in the North West with a glowing reputation.
