Morecambe sign former Bury defender Mark Hughes, who is immediately named as the club's new captain.

Morecambe have signed former Bury defender Mark Hughes on a free transfer.

The 26-year-old centre-back, who was released by the Shakers after two seasons at Gigg Lane, has put pen to paper on a two-year contract at the Globe Arena.

Morecambe manager Jim Bentley has immediately made Hughes his new captain.

"Mark is a player I have always kept an eye on and I delighted that he has signed for us," Bentley told the club's official website.

"He has a lot of qualities and is a great talker as well as a good defender and will be an excellent captain for us."

Hughes is likely to make his debut in tonight's friendly against Burnley.
