Morecambe to meet Barrow and Blackpool in EFL Trophy
and live on Freeview channel 276
Derek Adams’ players have been placed in Group A alongside Barrow AFC and Blackpool, as well as one of the 16 invited U21 teams.
The eight U21 squads in the northern section of the draw are the players representing Everton, Leicester City, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Nottingham Forest and Wolves.
Sky Sports will broadcast the remainder of the draw at 11.30am tomorrow, two-and-a-half hours after next season’s league fixtures are published.
The match with Barrow also represents a reunion with Courtney Duffus, who joined them earlier this month after being released by Morecambe at the end of the season.
Three hours after the Trophy groups are determined, Sky Sports will also have the live draw for round one of the Carabao Cup with Morecambe being ball number 23 in the northern section.
With Duffus at Barrow and Liam Gibson at Harrogate Town, Morecambe will meet another familiar face in League Two after Dan Crowley joined Notts County on a two-year deal.
Crowley was another of the 14 players who weren’t offered terms upon the publication of the Shrimps’ retained list.
The 25-year-old moved to the Mazuma Stadium in January, penning a deal until the end of the campaign and scoring twice in 21 appearances.
Another summer departure, Jon Obika, has completed a permanent move to Motherwell after a loan spell last season.
