Morecambe’s draw at Macclesfield Town last weekend saw Shrimps’ boss Jim Bentley lock horns with his opposition counterpart Sol Campbell – not for the first time.

As a picture from the time shows, the two got up close and personal almost a decade earlier when Campbell made his sole appearance for Notts County.

That resulted in a 2-1 win for Morecambe on a day when Bentley opened the scoring for Morecambe against a County side featuring players including Kasper Schmeichel.

However, while Bentley acknowledged they weren’t as close last Saturday, he admits is a big fan of the job done by the former England international at the Moss Rose.
