Academy manager Tony Cook was delighted to be able to celebrate the younger age groups in September with a special Academy day hosted at the Morecambe first-team game.

The day was used as a signing day for the U9s who along with the U10s age group were introduced to Rovers fans at half-time.

Cook said: “It is pleasing that the young lads got to be paraded around the first-team, fans and staff.

“It was the first time we have been able to come to a competitive game as an Academy since lockdown so it was nice to all be together.”

The Academy day also signified the final event for lead Foundation Phase coach Michael Pedley who has since joined Newcastle United.

Cook added: “This was Michael’s first role in a lead position. He did an excellent job and he leaves with our best wishes. We can't blame him for wanting to go to a Premier League club which is also his home town."
