More new signings at Morecambe FC

January 03, 2020

Morecambe FC have signed three more players on a busy day in the transfer market.

The Shrimps added winger Jordan Slew (pictured) and loan signings Adam Phillips and Ryan Cooney to the squad, having earlier announced the addition of midfielder Toumani Diagouraga.

Slew, 27, is a former Sheffield United forward, who transferred to Blackburn Rovers for £1.1 million in 2011, has Football League experience with the likes of Chesterfield, Cambridge United, Plymouth Argyle and Rochdale and has joined from Ashton United until the end of the season.

Like Diagouraga, he has previously worked with Morecambe manager Derek Adams.

Derek said: “I have signed Jordan twice in the past, on loan from Blackburn when I was at Ross County and again at Plymouth when we won promotion into League One.

“He is one that can play off the right hand side or the left hand side or through the middle so he gives us options in these areas and will be another good addition to our squad.’'

Jordan's signing is sponsored by the Boardwalk.

Both Phillips and Cooney, who have signed on loan until the end of the season, are regulars in the Clarets’ under 23 squad with Phillips a midfielder and Cooney a full back.

Adams said: “I’ve watched both players in games recently and been impressed with them.

“Adam is a midfielder who was a youngster with Liverpool and Norwich and has a good pedigree.

“Ryan made his debut as a teenager at Bury and will add competition for places in the full back areas.

“We are looking forward to working with both players.”

Morecambe's next League Two game is at home to Colchester United on Saturday, January 11; kick-off 3pm.
