“We ran a thorough process to find the best possible general manager and we were really impressed with Ben.

“His values match ours, he is a born leader, who is driven, determined and incredibly hard-working. We can’t wait for him to start on Monday.”

The club has also revealed a two-part season ticket initiative will be published later this month.

The Shrimps say the scheme will ensure 2020/21 season ticket holders will be ‘properly compensated’ for their inability to see games at the Mazuma Stadium last season as a result of the pandemic.

It is also said season tickets for 2021/22 will be more affordable than before with details to be finalised and published before the fixtures are released at 9am on Thursday, June 24.

A club statement revealed: “We can confirm however, that we will go further than the vast majority of EFL clubs to recognise the loyalty of those who purchased season tickets last season.

“We also intend to make season tickets for 2021/22 more accessible to a greater number of fans than ever before, so that as many as possible can be part of Morecambe FC’s brand-new bright tomorrow!”
