Former Claret Conlan signs new Morecambe deal
After playing over 100 League Two games for Morecambe, former Claret Luke Conlan has committed to a further two years with the club after his best season yet.
Luke joined the Clarets as a scholar in 2011 and was in the team that reached the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup in his first season and also the team that won at Manchester United in the same competition on the following night.
He spent a total of five years with the club during which time his only first team football was a few minutes on the pitch in a pre-season game at Accrington but he did enjoy two loans in his final season, the first of them with St. Mirren when he made his league debut at Ibrox, and then at Morecambe where he impressed manager Jim Bentley enough to offer him a contract.
A Northern Ireland under-21 international, he’s been at Morecambe for three years now. He passed his century of league appearances for them in April and yesterday he agreed a new two year deal with the club.
Bentley said of him: “Luke has improved greatly over the last 12 months and played the most minutes of all the players at the club last season. He’s getting better and better and hopefully that continues.
“I feel he’s a big of an unsung hero but he’s certainly well respected within the squad and by all the staff. He’s a very good professional who gets on with his job in a very good manner and it’s great news that he is committing to Morecambe FC for a further two years.”Share this page :
