Morecambe’s Head of Recruitment is to leave the club in the next few days to pursue an opportunity elsewhere.
Since joining the Shrimps as Head of Recruitment in June 2022, Greg Strong has worked tirelessly to bring dozens of players to the Mazuma Mobile Stadium, including assembling the Shrimps’ squad for their second season in League One, and having to rebuild the squad following Morecambe’s relegation to League Two in May, which left the first team with just six contracted players.
Speaking of Strong’s departure, CEO Ben Sadler said: “We are naturally disappointed that Greg is moving on to a new opportunity, as he is a top quality colleague and person, but we’re very thankful for the work he has undertaken in the 18 months he has been at the Club.
“Greg is a popular member of the team here and has been a pivotal part of our player recruitment across a number of transfer windows now. We all wish Greg the very best in his new role.
“Our plans for the upcoming January transfer window have already been made and agreed with Ged & Greg, and we look forward to sharing news on signings throughout the month as and when complete.”
