Morecambe Ladies’ bid to preserve their Women’s Premier League Northern Division One status continues on Sunday.

Nick Barrett’s side, currently ninth in the 12-team league, face Tranmere at Lancaster and Morecambe College in the first of six crucial games to finish the season.

Rovers are a place and two points below The Shrimpettes but have two games in hand.

The Ladies have struggled of late and were without a game on Sunday.

Last time out they lost 3-2 at home to Chester-le-Street on March 8.

Their focus may be on preserving league status but attention will soon also turn to their Lancashire Cup final against Blackburn Rovers on Monday, March 30.

The match means the proposed league game at Stockport County 24 hours earlier on March 29 will have to be rearranged.

The game against Tranmere this Sunday kicks off at 2pm at the college with all support welcome.
