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."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
