John Morrissey could have earned his place in the Tranmere Hall of Fame for his 64 goals for the Club from the wing. 

It could have been his 585 appearances which put him fourth highest in the Club's all time list behind only Ray Mathias, Harold Bell and Steve Mungall.

But it's most likely he was voted in for his skill, trickery and constant supply of goal scoring chances for his team mates. 

Morrissey began his career at Everton and moved to Wolverhampton Wanderers his career took him to Prenton Park in October 1985.

He was rarely out of the side, or the number 7 shirt, over the next 14 seasons, supplying chances for the likes of Ian Muir, Chris Malkin, Jim Steel, John Aldridge and David Kelly from the wing.

He is one of a small group of players who appeared for the Club all the way from Division Four to Division Two and at Wembley Stadium and was massively popular on and off the pitch.
