O'Carroll makes Shrimps move

Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy has snapped up the highly-rated Celtic youngster Diarmuid O'Carroll on a one-year deal. The 21-year-old Killarney-born striker came through the Bhoys' youth academy and spent the second half of the 2006-07 campaign on loan at Ross County, scoring twice in 16 appearances for the Dingwall-based side. McIlroy told the Shrimps' official website: "My former United team-mate Jimmy Nicholl really rates this boy and he is without doubt an exciting prospect. "He's been scoring regularly for Celtic reserves for a while now and is keen to come and make his mark. "He had a choice of a few clubs but he chose us and I'm really looking forward to seeing him link up with the rest of the lads."
