Morecambe strengthen squad with double signing 

Morecambe have added a defender and a winger to their squad. 

Defender Kayden Harrack has joined Morecambe until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old came through the ranks at Brentford before making a move to QPR aged 13. From there, he worked his way through the academy to the U21s before becoming a free agent this month.

Additionally, Harrack has international experience having represented Grenada nine times to-date, teaming up with Shrimps’ defender Jacob Bedeau on the world stage.

Predominantly a centre-back, the defender can also slot in at right-back when required, having played there a number of times throughout his career.

Speaking on his move to the Mazuma, Harrack said: “I'm over the moon!

"I was lucky enough to come in for a few days, meet the boys and staff, and I couldn't be happier.

"I only heard positive things from Jacob [Bedeau] which was definitely a factor in coming in, he said about all the boys and staff and what a welcoming environment Morecambe is.

"I'd describe myself as aggressive, defensive minded, passionate and I'll leave everything on the pitch every week."

Meanwhile, Brandon Barker has joined Morecambe on a deal until the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

A product of the Manchester City academy from the age of eight, the 27-year-old made his competitive debut for the Citizens in a 2016 FA Cup clash against Chelsea.

Throughout his time at the Etihad, Barker enjoyed loan spells with the likes of Rotherham, NAC Breda, Hibs and Preston North End; his first goal for the Lilywhites came in a Carabao Cup victory over the Shrimps in August 2018.

He remained with the Blues until the summer of 2019, when Scottish Premiership giants Rangers came calling. Following 18 months and one league title at Ibrox, Barker spent four months on loan at Oxford United before leaving Gers’ the following winter.

In recent years, a short stint at Reading was followed by a season with Omonia Nikosia in Cyprus, where he helped guide the team to the Cypriot Cup last campaign.

As well as a wealth of domestic experience, Barker has represented England 15 times at youth level.

“I'm absolutely delighted, I can't wait to get going and hopefully I can really help the team," he said.

"The boys are obviously doing well this year, a few games in hand and not too far off the play-offs, so hopefully I can bring my experience in and help the team climb the table.

"The lads have been very welcoming, it's nice for me because I can live at home for the first time in a very long time so that's an added bonus, so it's been brilliant so far.

"[I look] to be direct, hopefully hit the ground running and become much sharper over the coming games. Hopefully I'll excite them [the fans], get them on their feet and get them in to watch us."
