As a mark of gratitude, Morecambe fans attending today's against Cambridge will all be treated to a complimentary pie and pint courtesy of manager Jim Bentley.

A couple of weeks ago, Bentley was reduced to tears when Morecambe fans clubbed together to pay off the £1,000 fine he incurred from the FA after being sent to the stands and charged with improper conduct during a game against Cheltenham in December.

Ahead of their final game of the League Two season, Southend's players were given a pre-match gee-up by none other than Jeremy Kyle, i.e, the megalomaniac host/ringleader of the scum circus that is The Jeremy Kyle Show.

In September, warmly tipped Crawley Town followed up a 6-0 hiding at Morecambe with a 3-0 home battering by Swindon. Having begun existence in the League well, these results were far from expected and everything that has happened since makes them seem still more unusual.
