Morecambe have signed former Manchester City and Rochdale striker Jack Redshaw from Altrincham on an 18-month contract in an undisclosed deal.
The 21-year-old impressed while on trial, scoring twice for the Shrimps reserves in a 4-1 win over Tranmere.
Morecambe manager Jim Bentley told the club website: "Jack is a player with great potential.
"He may only be small but he is strong and quick and has a real eye for goal. He is definitely one for the future."
