Morecambe Fail to Pay Players and Staff

February 2, 2017

League Two football team Morecambe have failed to pay players and staff their January wages, as the takeover of the club is yet to be completed.

US-based Italian businessman Joseph Cala has agreed to buy the Lancashire side, via a stake in the Shrimps’ controlling company G50. Cala has stated he expects players and staff to be paid presently.

Earlier this year, Morecambe fans collected £1,000 to pay manager Jim Bentley’s fine and costs after a Football Association charge.
