The Shrimps Trust is asking fans to sign a giant card in JB’s Bar before the game, volunteers are taking collections for the Lancashire Mind organisation, while Ellison has also donated a signed shirt to be auctioned off.

Ellison was Bentley’s first signing as Morecambe manager; watch as he provides his own tribute to the club’s joint top scorer this season.
