Morecambe talisman Kevin Ellison has signed a one-year contract extension at the Globe Arena.

The 34-year-old’s new deal ties him to the Shrimps until the end of the 2014-15 season.

Ellison, who recently returned from a fractured eye socket, has scored six goals this season.

Shrimps boss Jim Bentley said: “Kev was the first player I signed and has proved to be a fantastic person to have around both on and off the field.

“He is the most committed player you could wish to have and has scored some great and important goals for us over the past couple of seasons.

“He is someone who motivates others as well and I’m delighted that he has signed up again.”
