Adam Phillips & Ryan Cooney Join Morecambe Until End of Season
Burnley Football Club have this afternoon confirmed that Adam Phillips and Ryan Cooney have joined Morecambe Football Club on loan until the end of the season, as the Shrimps try to avoid relegation back to the Vanarama National League and the players gain some valuable first team experience.
Ryan Cooney will get the chance to add to the twenty-one Football League appearances he played last season for former league side Bury Football Club. Where he helped the Shakers win promotion from Sky Bet League Two before the club were removed from the Football League at the start of this season. He will now be concentrating his efforts at the other end of the table, with the Shrimps currently one place and one point above the relegation spot.
Adam Phillips is a former Liverpool and England youth international, who joined Burnley after leaving Norwich City, having previously played a handful of games in Sky Bet League Two during a loan spell at Cambridge United. He has had a loan with Hamilton in 2018.
Like Cooney, Phillips has helped the Clarets’ U23’s to top of the Professional Development League’s northern section this season and it will also give both players the chance to add to their first team experience. Morecambe boss Derek Adams, who had a brief loan spell as a player with the Clarets in the 1990’s will be looking for both players to help Morecambe remain in the Football League.
