Family Fun Day enjoyed by all!

28 August 2019

Tranmere Rovers’ Family Fun Day at Prenton Park on Bank Holiday Monday proved to be a great success.

The SWA and SWA2 were treated to an action-packed day of fun at the home of TRFC which took place from 10am-2pm.

During the day, supporters got the chance to watch the squad being put through their paces on the Prenton Park pitch during an open training session.

Rover the Dog was on hand to meet members of the SWA2 while fans could also purchase the new Essar home, away and goalkeeper shirts as well as the latest training gear, manufactured by Puma.

Nicola Palios, Vice Chairman of Tranmere Rovers, spoke about the importance of the day and how important it is to the Club.

She said: “It is a massive part of what we are trying to do to get the next generation of young supporters in and it’s been really successful. We have got a great number of kids coming in week after week and that is great to see because it is the future of the Club.”

TRFC captain Scott Davies also shared his thoughts on the Family Open Day.

The goalkeeper said: “The fans are a massive part of this Club, they have welcomed me with open arms and it nice to give something back, bring my own family and everyone can get involved.

“It is nice to give something back on a personal level and meet them after the support they have given us.”

Andy Doyle, of the Tranmere Rovers Supporters Association, was pleased with how the event went and went onto speak about the work to help all parts of the Wirral community.

He added: “Besides the TRSA, we’ve got the TRDSA, which is the disabled supporters’ group of which our charitable arm is the Lee Knight Foundation.

“Most fans will go to a game on a Saturday, get a pie, a pint and a programme and enjoy it without a second thought but if you’re in a wheelchair permanently, groups like ourselves promote the benefits and the features and there are people here who can help you enjoy the match.”
