Hunter the hero for the Shrimps: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Garry Hunter's 72nd-minute strike earned Morecambe a play-off spot and a 1-0 win over Aldershot.

The Shrimps produced an excellent second-half performance to clinch fourth spot in League Two in the club's final regular season league game at Christie Park before moving to their new stadium.

Hunter slotted home Paul Mullin's low cross after a long clearance from goalkeeper Barry Roche caused the Shots' defence all manner of problems.

The Shots had started the game well and wasted a string of chances in the first period as Damien Spence and Marlon Jackson both missed the target when they should have done better.

Mullin went close for Morecambe with a header that was well saved by Jamie Young and Damian Spencer also flashed an effort over before Hunter netted the decisive goal.
