Moore knows the importance of SWA at Prenton Park

15 April 2019

Tranmere Rovers hero Ronnie Moore is delighted to see Micky Mellon’s side competing at the top end of Sky Bet League Two as the promotion race intensifies and he believes that the SWA can play their part from the stands.

Micky Mellon’s side are currently fifth in the fourth-tier, two-points behind third-placed Mansfield Town in the final automatic promotion place following on from last Saturday’s 2-1 home win against fellow promotion-hopefuls MK Dons at Prenton Park.

Tranmere have just four matches of the season to play, starting when they welcome Forest Green Rovers to the Wirral on Good Friday, as Mellon’s men remain firmly in the hunt to gain automatic promotion.

Moore served TRFC twice as a player, starting and ending his career at Rovers between 1971-1979 and 1986-1989.

He was later assistant manager to Club icon Johnny King before having two stints as manager from 2006-2009 and 2012-2014.

The 66-year-old Liverpool-native praised the support that the SWA have given Rovers both home and away throughout this term and hopes they ‘Pack The Park’ once again!

Moore told TRFC’s official website: “Mark and Nicola Palios have come in and they have sorted the Club out really well. It is run in the right way. The support they get is fantastic support, away from home the other week they took 2,500 people to Oldham and they were singing all the way through.

“They are fantastic supporters at Tranmere, and I wish them all the best and hopefully they do get that promotion.”

Rovers had previously won seven games in a row, a feat which saw boss Mellon collect March’s Manager of the Month accolade recently, and Moore believes that Tranmere can continue their form and get promoted come May.

He continued: “It is fantastic, they have had a tremendous run and Micky Mellon getting Manager of the Month and two promotions on the trot could be fantastic for us.

“For them to beat MK Dons was important, they have closed that gap now and they have got every chance.”

Moore has had an association with Tranmere Rovers for over 40 years and his love for the Club remains the same.

After enjoying a prolonged career with the Birkenhead outfit both on the pitch and in the dugout, Moore recalled his abiding memories of his spell at Prenton Park.

Moore added: “I have loads of great memories there especially when Johnny King was there, and we had to win to keep them in the league against Exeter a long time ago.

“Being a manager and playing there, I just absolutely loved being there, loved playing, loved managing, it is a fantastic Club and it had a lot of years of my life.”
