Fly your flag at Morecambe FC

Morecambe FC boss Jim Bentley has told fans he wants every day to be a flag day at the Globe Arena.

Bentley is offering fans the chance to put up a flag in the home terracing at the Globe Arena for the coming season to add a splash of colour and atmosphere at home games.

"When you watch Italian games you often see flags hanging at the back of the stand and they are a great sight," he explained via the Club's official site. "I have spoken before about making the Globe Arena, and the stand behind the goal especially, feel more like home and this is something that will help us. It is a lovely ground but it lacks a Morecambe touch at the moment.

"It would be great for supporters to have their own flags hanging up at the ground all season. They could be of a favourite player, a favourite moment or even in memory of a loved one. The flag would be individual to that person and be a permanent landmark for them at the Globe."

The plan has the full backing of the Club's Chief Executive, Rod Taylor.

"Jim is really keen to get the fans more involved this season and this is something all supporters could really relate to," he said. "The club will do all it can to support any fan who wishes to get involved."

The only stipulation is that the flag has to be fire retardant and a certificate gained to prove this and handed into the club.

- If you have a flag you would like to put up please contact the club on 01524 411797
