Manager Profile

Jim Bentley, in his first job in management, is one of the longest-serving gaffers in England.

Bentley was originally appointed player-manager of Morecambe back in 2011 following an illustrious career, which saw him win over 300 appearances for the club, but quickly went on to establish himself as a prominent figure in the Shrimps dugout.

Bentley has been given time by the club to develop as a young manager and both himself and the hierarchy will now be looking towards a possible a play-off challenge, although staying in the Football League is the number one priority.

Jim Bentley Quotes

Shocking, absolutely shocking. I call that a sackable performance. There would be a few of them (the players) I would empty out right away if I had a couple of quid to bring a few players in, because they were weak and lacked character.


If one of my lot went on strike I'd get him in a headlock, take him in that gym and sort it out.


It's a little bit like being in (the supermarket) and looking at a nice red wine or expensive vodka then checking your pocket and you've got nothing in the wallet, so you go home and you have a cup of tea or a glass of water.

The Sack Race's Opinion

At a club Bentley knows well, his experience is sure to aid Morecambe's development, and both players and fans alike will be buoyed by the impact he has had at the Globe Arena, and will feel the future is bright for a club who are now firmly established in League Two.
