The date for Morecambe’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy area quarter-final match has been confirmed.

The Shrimps will travel to League 1 Rochdale on Tuesday, November 10 for a 7.45pm kick-off.

Jim Bentley’s side have had two fine results in the competition thus far this year.

Goals from Tom Barkhuizen and Jamie Devitt saw The Shrimps dump out League 1 high-fliers Walsall with a 2-0 win at the opening stage, a result that saw The Shrimps pick up the team of the round award.

Bentley’s men then won 1-0 at Bury in round two thanks to Shaun Miller’s late winner.

Tickets for the quarter-final at Spotland are £10 for adults and £5 for juniors.
