Recent History

Promoted to the Conference at the end of the 1994/95 season, despite only finishing second in the Northern Premier League, Morecambe have Conference finishes of 3rd, 4th and two 5th's under their belts and in 2002/03 excelled this by coming second. This pitched them into a play of semi final over two legs against the Daggers which was a heart stopping contest eventually won by us on penalties after heroics by Tony Roberts. Reports from these matches are here and here..

In 2003/04 they could not quite repeat their performance, finishing 7th and just out of the play offs, let down by a string of bad results away from home.

They have had some good FA Cup runs in recent years, twice meeting Ipswich Town in the 3rd round and in 1974 they won the FA Trophy at Wembley beating Dartford 2-1.

Morecambe always seem to have have great and very close games with the Daggers and their fans are some of the best to be seen at Victoria Road despite the distance.

Their ten season league record stands as follows
