Morecambe FC plunged into crisis


Morecambe FC has been plunged into crisis after majority shareholder Mr Diego Lemos failed to deliver on promises of investment.  Ali Abdulrahman Al Hasemi has resigned as co-chairman and director.

Mr Lemos has not been in the country since mid-November and has been difficult to contact.   The Brazilian businessman took over at the club at the beginning of September.

Before his involvement it had faced financial challenges and may now have to go into administration. Morecambe had the lowest average attendance in League Two in 2015/16 (1,572).  

Many Conference clubs record better figures.   Nine clubs have higher average attendances so far this season.
