The 23-year-old, who also counts Rotherham, Macclesfield and Grimsby among his former clubs, spent last season in the north west with Bury.

Marshall revealed former Millers team-mate and Shrimps fans' favourite Kevin Ellison was an influence on his decision to join Jim Bentley's squad.

"The gaffer really sold the club to me when I met him and I can't wait to get going," said Marshall on Morecambe's official website.

"I played with Kevin Ellison at Rotherham and he said this was a great club to be at and everything I have seen so far points to that.

"I had a disappointing season with Bury and I am just looking to start playing regularly again and enjoy my football and I am really looking forward to pre-season training and meeting the lads next week."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
