Morecambe’s big Capital One Cup clash with Newcastle United on Wednesday night is officially a sell out.

The final 200 tickets for the round two tie were snapped up by fans on Tuesday meaning nearly 6,500 fans will pack out the Globe Arena for the televised game against the Premier League giants.

It will set a record crowd for the Shrimps’ new Westgate home, beating 5,003 for the game against Burnley at the same stage of the competition back in 2010 - the year the stadium opened.

Newcastle have also sold out their allocation of around 1,800 tickets.
