Morecambe have signed winger Marcus Marshall on a two-year deal.

A product of Blackburn's youth system, Marshall spent last season in the north west with Bury.

The 23-year-old, who also counts Rotherham, Macclesfield and Grimsby among his former clubs, revealed former Millers team-mate and Shrimps fans' favourite Kevin Ellison was an influence on his decision to join Jim Bentley's squad.

"The gaffer really sold the club to me when I met him and I can't wait to get going," said Marshall on Morecambe's official website.

"I played with Kevin Ellison at Rotherham and he said this was a great club to be at and everything I have seen so far points to that.

"I had a disappointing season with Bury and I am just looking to start playing regularly again and enjoy my football and I am really looking forward to pre-season training and meeting the lads next week."
