There was some good news revealed by Morecambe recently, however also some bad news as an injury will keep captain Peter Murphy out for the remainder of the season.

Murphy suffered a serious long-term injury that will keep him out for six-months, with him confirmed as having ‘suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament, medial ligament damage and also meniscus damage’ which all amounts to bad news basically!

He’ll miss what’s left of this season but, having suffered such an injury for the second time in his career, Physio Simon Farnworth told the Official Site he’s hopeful of him being back in training and ready to return for pre-season ahead of the 2016/17 season.

‘Peter has had a scan and will have an operation in a couple of weeks when the swelling has gone down. An injury like this usually has a six month rehabilitation programme so he will hopefully back in pre season.’

That, obviously, was the bad new but the good news was that of Aaron McGowan committing his future to Morecambe.

McGowan, who has been with the club since he was 16 and became the Shrimps’ youngest ever Football League debutant when he made his bow in April 2013 against Torquay, will now remain with the club until July 2018.

Bentley has backed him to go ‘from strength to strength’ going forward, adding on the Official Site.

‘Aaron’s done great and is progressing really well. He’s played a lot of first team football this season and we’re hoping he can go from strength to strength in the future.’
