McIlroy guided Morecambe to League Two
Morecambe manager Sammy McIlroy and his assistant Mark Lillis have signed new 18-month contracts.

McIlroy, 53, led the Shrimps to promotion to the Football League in May for the first time in their history.

"These have been exciting times for Morecambe and I've had magnificent support from the board, the players and the fans," said McIlroy.

"To win promotion at Wembley was a wonderful moment that none of us will ever forget." 

Chief executive Rod Taylor told Morecambe's website: "We are all delighted that the pair have signed on again. The club has gone from strength to strength in recent years and with the proposed new ground planned as well we felt it was important to maintain the stability of the club."
