breaking news: HE’S BACK AGAIN….

Morecambe’s chief executive, Ben Sadler, will step down at the end of the season to become the new CEO of League Two rival Walsall.

Sadler, who assumed the role of chief executive of the Shrimps in June 2022 after serving as the club’s general manager, spent four years at Harrogate Town before joining Morecambe.

“It has been a privilege and an honour to lead Morecambe Football Club over the past three years,” Sadler said on Morecambe’s website. “The highlights have been extremely rewarding. The challenges we have faced, as a group, have also been significant, but we have overcome them through strong teamwork, striving to continually improve, and most importantly – always believing we can.”

Sadler’s departure follows the club’s three-point deduction by the English Football League for failing to comply with a decision made in August 2023 after the club failed to pay its players on time.

Owners Jason Whittingham and Colin Goldring put Morecambe up for sale in September 2022 and resigned from the board, but the club has not yet been sold.

Captain Farrend Rawson urged Whittingham to sell the club following the recent points deduction.
