Jamie Devitt scores stunning goal as Morecambe share spoils with York

Jamie Devitt scored a stunning goal as Morecambe and York drew 1-1 on the final day of the Sky Bet League Two season at the Globe Arena.

Luke Summerfield gave relegated York the lead in first half injury time before Devitt earned Morecambe a draw with his goal shortly after the break.

Summerfield picked up a loose ball in midfield and drove straight at the Morecambe defence before firing a low left foot shot past Barry Roche from 20 yards out.

The Shrimps should have equalised seconds later when top scorer Shaun Miller was played in on goal but hesitated, allowing Dave Winfield to produce a superb block at full stretch.

Morecambe did level five minutes after the break with a special strike from Devitt.

The midfielder took the ball just outside the York area and let fly with a stunning, dipping right foot drive that flew into the top corner of Michael Ingham's goal.

From there both sides traded chances with Ingham saving superbly from Aaron Wildig before York missed two glorious chances in quick succession.

Lee Molyneux blocked Bradley Fewster's close range shot on the line before Ken McEvoy somehow missed the target from two yards out after a neat Josh Carson cross.

Morecambe ended on top with Ingham producing a flying save to tip over a Paul Mullin strike as the game ended in stalemate.
