Morecambe draw Barnsley in the Carling Cup

MORECAMBE will travel to Championship side Barnsley in the first round of the Carling Cup.

The Shrimps will line up against former midfielder Dave Perkins, who signed for the Tykes last week, in the tie to be played in the week commencing August 8.

Barnsley recently appointed former Rochdale boss Keith Hill as their new manager after Mark Robins resigned following a disagreement of next season’s playing budget.

The Tykes finished 17th in the Championship last season.
