Four Morecambe footballers will become TV stars on Friday when they appear on kids’ channel Nicktoons.

The Shrimps’ Lee Molyneux, Aaron McGowan, Ntumba Massanka and Peter Murphy will be appearing on the channel’s ‘Nick Kicks’ programme.

The players will be answering the questions in the show’s ‘First 11 Challenge’ where they have to answer 11 quickfire questions – such as an impersonation of their favourite animal.

Running for 44 episodes, the second season of Nick Kicks sees presenters Roman Kemp and Rachel Stringer visit football clubs across the country to talk to players from the Football League and special guests.

Each episode will also include weekly highlights from Football League fixtures.

“It is great to be back for the second season of Nick Kicks,” said Kemp.

“The first season was such a laugh and this time we are covering the whole season which means more football as well more hilarious team challenges and interesting interviews.”

Stringer added: “Nick Kicks gives football fans a look at their favourite teams that you just can’t find on any other programme.

“I am so pleased that we are back and can’t wait for football fans to see what we have in store for clubs this year.”

The show is aired on Friday at 6pm and repeated on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Nicktoons can be found on Sky channel 606 and Virgin Media 717.
