Chief executive Rod Taylor and vice-chairman Graham Hodgson have both relinquished their roles just three weeks after fellow director Stephen Wright also stepped down.

Taylor is set to continue on the board in a lesser capacity but Hodgson will not have any involvement, ending a 22-year association with the Shrimps.

Taylor told the Morecambe Visitor: "The complexion of the football club has changed over the past four years with executive directors being employed and I have felt that the title of CEO has been a misnomer for quite some time now.

"The title is appropriate for someone who is shaping the way the company operates on a day to day basis and under the changed regime I have not been able to perform that function for a number of years."

Hodgson said: "Unfortunately, at the present time, I am not entirely comfortable with how the company is being managed and for this reason I have tendered my resignation."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
