Morecambe Odds

As with every club playing in the English football professional leagues, Morecambe betting odds have increased in popularity with bettors and bookmakers alike over recent seasons. League Two is well renowned for being a tough league to predict, with teams fighting for promotion one season and battling against relegation the next. As such, Morecambe relegation odds are as popular as odds on Morecambe to be promoted.

In huge games, such as a League Two playoff encounter or a relegation six pointer, bookmakers can often enhance Morecambe odds. As an example, odds on Morecambe v Accrington Stanley can be subject to enhanced odds or price boosts, with bookmakers such as Skybet offering price boosts on a regular basis.

As well as odds offered on possible events occurring during Morecambe matches, many bookmakers also offer odds on possible events off the field as well. Morecambe manager odds, for instance, can offer excellent value, giving bettors more opportunities to make profit when betting on football.


Morecambe FC are a professional football club located in the town of Morecambe in the county of Lancashire. After spending the majority of their history playing non-league football, Morecambe earned Football League status in 2007. The club currently play in the fourth tier of English football, League Two.

The history of Morecambe Football Club begins in 1920. Whilst football had played a big part in the town of Morecambe previous to this year, Morecambe Football Club weren’t formed until 1920, founded after a meeting took place at the West View Hotel. Later that year, the club joined the Lancashire Combination League.

In the early part of Morecambe Football Club history, the club played their home games at Wood Hill Lane, home of the local cricket club, before moving to Roseberry Park, later known as Christie Park.

The club struggled in the Lancashire Combination League at first, but soon began to improve. The 1924/1925 campaign saw Morecambe lift the Lancashire Combination League title, with a Lancashire Junior Cup win following shortly afterwards.

The club’s time in the Lancashire Combination League continued, but the 1930’s were an inconsistent time for Morecambe Football Club. Finishing as high as third in some seasons and as low as 18th in others, the club found it tough to find any kind of stability. Morecambe were also struggling to earn any revenue from their football matches, and it became tough to keep the club afloat.

However, after the Second World War, Morecambe’s form began to improve. Over the next ten seasons, the club finished in the top half of the table on nine occasions, though Morecambe rarely came close to challenging for another Lancashire Combination League title.

The Auxiliary Supporters club was formed in the 1950’s, and this group helped the club with their off the field activities, including making improvements to the Morecambe Football Club stadium. This led to success on the pitch, with a Lancashire Senior Cup win and an FA Trophy added to the Morecambe trophy room.

The 1960’s also saw the club win the Lancashire Combination League title on four occasions - 1962, 1963, 1967 and 1968 bringing the club league success. After the club’s fourth title of the decade, the club moved to the newly created Northern Premier League.

The club struggled with their move to a new division, with 17 bottom half finishes in their first 18 years of Northern Premier League football. However, in the mid 1980’s, Morecambe’s form achieved an upturn in fortunes, finishing in the top six for three consecutive seasons.

The club’s form dropped in the 1988/1989 and 1989/1990 seasons, finishing in the bottom half of the Northern Premier League table once again, but three successive third place finishes established Morecambe as one of the division’s best clubs. The club then achieved promotion for the first time in Morecambe history, a runner up position enough to see the club earn a place in the Conference Premier.

Morecambe soon established themselves as a steady Conference Premier side, with six top ten finishes in the club’s first eight seasons. The club came close to promotion in the 2002/2003 season, reaching the Conference Premier playoffs, but were beaten at the semi final stage. Three seasons later, the club reached the playoffs once more, but again lost out in the semi finals.

However, the 2006/2007 season finally brought playoff success to the club. Facing Exeter City in the Conference Premier playoff final, Morecambe won the match 2-1, earning Football League status for the first time in the club’s history.

The 2009/2010 campaign was the club’s last at their Christie Park stadium, and Morecambe came close to sending off their old ground in style after reaching the League Two playoffs. Once again, though, the club were beaten at the semi final stage, this time by Dagenham & Redbridge.

Following this near miss with promotion, the club have struggled in the fourth tier of English football. In the subsequent eight seasons, Morecambe have finished 15th place or lower on seven occasions. Still, the club started the 2018/2019 campaign as members of League Two.


The current Morecambe football crest features an image of a shrimp, based on the club’s nickname, set against a red background. This is in a shield shape, with the club name printed across the top of the shield.

This Morecambe football badge was introduced in 2010, and replaced the badge that featured the town of Morecambe coat of arms. This Morecamber badge had featured two Lancashire red roses, with an image of a ship shown at the bottom. This also was a shield shape, and the badge featured two banners, one above and one below the shield. Inside the top banner was the name of the club, and below was printed the Morecambe motto - Beauty Surrounds Health Abounds.


The Morecambe kit colours are predominantly red. Red has featured on every Morecambe kit since the club were formed in 1920.

The first Morecambe colours featured red shirts, worn with white shorts and black socks. This Morecambe strip was worn until 1945, when the colour of the socks were changed from black to red.

Red shirts, white shorts and red socks were worn by the Morecambe players until 1961. Then, the kit changed to red shirts, white shorts and white socks.

An all red kit was introduced for the 1968/1969 season, before yellow became a Morecambe kit colour. In 1973, the Morecambe kit featured red shirts with a diagonal white stripe, red shorts and yellow socks. Yellow also featured on the next season’s kit, featuring as the trim on an otherwise all red Morecambe strip.

The 1976/1977 season saw the Morecambe players wear their original kit of red shirts, white shorts and black socks. This was changed a year later, and from 1977 to 1980 the Morecambe kit featured red shirts, worn with black shorts and red socks.

For the 1981/1982 campaign, the Morecambe strip featured a red shirt with white sleeves, white shorts and white socks. This was replaced with the reintroduction of an all red Morecambe kit, worn until 1985.

The 1985/1986 campaign saw the Morecambe players wear red shirts with white sleeves, worn with red shorts and white socks, and the following seasons the colours of the shorts and socks alternated.

1990 saw another all red Morecambe kit introduced, before changing to a red shirt, worn with black shorts and black socks for the 1992/1993 campaign.

Between 1993 and 1995, the Morecambe football kit consisted of red and black striped shirts, with white shorts and black socks with a red trim. This was changed to red and white striped shirts, worn with black shorts and red and white hooped socks until 1997.

From 1997 to 2000, the Morecambe players wore red shirts, with black shorts and red socks, though the sock colour alternated between red and black. From 2000 to 2006, the Morecambe kit colours consisted of red shirts, white shorts and black socks. 

From 2006 to 2015, the Morecambe kit featured red shirts and white shorts, worn with either white, red or black socks. This kit was then changed for the 2015/2016 season, which featured a Morecambe kit of red and black striped shirts, worn with black shorts and black socks.

The 2018/2019 Morecambe home kit features red shirts with black sleeves, black shorts and black socks.

The majority of Morecambe supporters hail from the town of Morecambe and other parts of Lancashire. There are a variety of Morecambe supporters clubs, including the Fans Club of Morecambe.

The Morecambe supporters enjoy a huge rivalry with fellow Lancashire side Accrington Stanley. Morecambe endured a torrid time against Accrington Stanley upon their entry to the Football League, embarking on a 16 match run where they failed to beat their rivals. However, this changed in 2015, when Morecambe finally defeated Stanley, beating them 1-0.

Morecambe Football Club have been on the receiving end of this scoreline on two occasions. Firstly, Leek Town inflicted this defeat on the club, in the Football Conference in 1998.
