Morecambe midfielder Joe McGee is set for a long spell on the sidelines after picking up a serious knee injury.

The 21-year-old was injured in the Shrimps’ final reserve game of the season against Shrewsbury with a scan later revealing he had suffered serious cruciate ligament damage.

It will require surgery and could rule the youngster, whose contract runs out in the summer, out for up to nine months.

He tweeted: “Absolutely devastated about my injury... Going to be a long time out of the game but I will come back stronger.”
