Manager Profile

Time at Club:





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.

Managerial Career


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.
