Christian, who wore the number 34 shirt for the Shrimps, was found dead at his home in Cottam, Preston, two weeks ago.

His death is not being treated as suspicious and a report has been sent to the coroner.

The Morecambe marathon (#34ForMbulu) had been organised by defender Sam Lavelle “in memory of a good friend and teammate.”
