Shrimps reject Chester Twiss bid
Michael Twiss
Twiss has no desire to leave Christie Park
Morecambe have rejected a bid for top-scorer Michael Twiss, 27, from his former club Chester City.

A deal that could have been worth up to 50,000 was rejected by the Morecambe board on Monday night.

Manager Jimmy Harvey told his club's website: "Michael has done well for us this season. His football and confidence are improving all the time.

"I feel he will play a pivotal role in our assault for a play-off place in the Nationwide Conference."

He added: "I spoke with Michael and he made it very clear to me that he did not want to move from Morecambe."

Twiss said: "I am very happy at Christie Park and enjoying my football more now than I have for quite some time.

"We have a great set of lads and the atmosphere and team spirit at the club is superb.

"We are in a good position to be in the play-offs and I am certainly not looking for a move from here at all."

Twiss left Chester on a free transfer at the end of last season after failing to gain a regular starting place in Mark Wright's Championship-winning side.

However, the former Manchester United and Port Vale striker, who has scored 13 times this season, was wanted back at the Deva Stadium by current Chester boss Ian Rush.
