SHRIMPS TRIBUTE TO THEIR TWO JBS
MORECAMBE have announced that they will rename the main bar at the Globe Arena after legendary club benefactor Joseph Barnes (JB) Christie and current manager Jim Bentley.
The convenient initials of the duo have led to the naming of JB’s Bar after consultation between fans and club director, Rod Taylor.
“The desire of the supporters to recognise the club’s patron JB Christie and Jim Bentley was really clear and we are delighted to support this,” said Taylor.
“Work will start soon on rebranding the bar to create a fantastic area that will have a real link with the club’s past and present.”
The Shrimps are also planning to build a Legends Bar in honour of those who have marked the history of the club in seasons past at Christie Park and then the Globe Arena.
Taylor added: “Plans have been drawn up, it will be a major boost to our facilities.”
MANAGER: Jim Bentley
