Morecambe have agreed a two-month loan deal for Bury defender Joe Widdowson.

The 25-year-old left-back, who signed for the Shakers in August after a successful trial, joins The Shrimps until October 28.

The former Rochdale defender, who played under Bury boss David Flitcroft at Spotland, made his Bury debut as a substitute in the 1-1 draw at Luton Town earlier this month.

Having spent the last two seasons at Northampton, Widdowson is likely to make his debut for Morecambe at Tranmere tomorrow.
