Morecambe have signed forward Michael Howard following his release by Preston North End, on a one-year-deal.

The Southport-born 19-year-old joined the Lillywhites as an 11-year-old and progressed through the academy, but did not make a full senior appearance.

Howard had loan spells with Cork City, Stalybridge and Hednesford during his time at Deepdale.

"He's a pacey player and can play wide or down the middle," boss Jim Bentley told the club website.
