Lewis Alessandra Set to Join Plymouth

Plymouth Argyle have confirmed that Lewis Alessandra is set to join them on a two-year deal after he rejected a new contract at Morecambe.

Shrimps boss Jim Bentley said the 24-year-old had initially agreed to remain at the Globe Arena but “has since had a change of heart”.

Bury based Alessandra came through the youth ranks at Oldham in 2007 and played in 76 matches for the Latics before moving onto Morecambe in 2011.

He made close to a century of appearances for the Shrimps but will join the Pilgrims when his current contract expires on 1 July.

“I think he’s at a good age and he can be a really good player for us,” boss John Sheridan told the club website. “He’s got a lot of things to his game – he can play on the wing and anywhere across the so-called front four – but I like to see him up front.”

Sheridan handed Alessandra his professional debut in 2007 when they were at Oldham together.
