Mungall: The SWA are so important to the Club

23 April 2019

Tranmere Rovers legend Steve Mungall has urged the SWA to get behind Micky Mellon and the lads when Bury visit Prenton Park in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon.

A native of Bellshill, defender Mungall played for TRFC from 1979-1996 as the Club enjoyed success throughout the 1980s and 1990s, pulling on a Rovers jersey over 600 times.

And now with the current Tranmere side in the promotion mix in their first season back in the EFL under Mellon, Mungall says that the supporters can play a big part on Saturday and for the closing weeks of the campaign.

He said: “As a player myself, the support from the fans support we had was great, we had some great times, but the fans get right behind, and it does give you that extra yard, so they play a big part.

“Micky has got them wound up, they know the position that they are in and they will be looking forward to coming out at Prenton Park in front of a big crowd.

“We were getting big crowds, it’s the same again now, Micky has got a good side here together and the success that he has had over the last couple of years as well is going to bring the fans back.

“They are very important to the Club by pushing the boys forward because without them, you’re nothing.

“Teams must come here and look at the place and it is a cup final for them so there is a lot of pressure on them to win games and they have done that and the way they play by getting the results is pleasing for the fans as well.”

Mungall signed for Tranmere from Motherwell in 1979 and went on to make a number of appearances for the Club at the old Wembley Stadium as Rovers enjoyed a rise through the leagues of English football.

A former team-mate of Club chairman Mark Palios, Mungall has praised the impact that he has had since taking control, as well as hailing the work that his fellow Scot Mellon has done since his appointment as manager.

“Tranmere has always been my Club, I played here for 18-years, over 600 games, a lot of good players, I played with Mark, the chairman, when I first came down, he had a great attitude, he had a winning mentality and he has carried that forward.

“He’s brought in a great manager in Micky Mellon and Micky is the same, he’s never say die, he proved it last year in the Play-Off Final and he’s the right man for the job and I’m sure in years to come, Micky can go on and emulate the success that John King had.”
