Morecambe have announced a four-year kit deal with sportswear company Puma and will also have their shirts sponsored by local firm,

The home kit will be in the traditional red but the club's away strip will be in sky blue.

Morecambe chief executive Rod Taylor told BBC Radio Lancashire: "We've been in talks over this since October - it doesn't happen overnight.

"The new kits are fabulous - it really does look a quality product."

Meanwhile tributes have poured in for club stalwart, Clarrie Hollins who has died after losing his battle against illness.

Hollins served the League Two club for 68 years.

"He was around the club for longer than any of us can remember - players that come back to Christie Park always ask 'where's Clarrie ?' and over the years he'd hardly changed at all in appearance." said Taylor.

"He did come to our last game of last season and everyone gave him a standing ovation - that really touched his heart.

"It's the end of an era in a lot of ways because he'd always been there."
