Dagnall has unfinished business at TRFC

31 January 2019

Chris Dagnall is excited to get going back at Tranmere Rovers after he returned to the Club on Deadline Day, penning a permanent deal.

Dagnall secured his Rovers return after his departure from Bury, where he spent the first half of the season at Gigg Lane and becomes our eighth signing of the January window.

The Liverpool-born forward began his career at Rovers, and 13 years after his last appearance for TRFC, he is relishing the chance of pulling on the Tranmere jersey once again.

Dagnall is also looking forward to reuniting with Mellon, his former TRFC team-mate and assistant manager at Barnsley, and he also revealed that Rovers were the only side he would have left Bury for. 

He said: “It’s brilliant, it’s been a long time since I’ve been here but I’m excited to get back to a Club that I’ve been at before. I enjoyed my last time here immensely so hopefully the same happens again.

“This Club is the only Club that I would have left Bury for. I played with Micky when I was here 13-years ago and he was assistant manager at Barnsley, you can see how good of a manager he is.

“I was devastated when I left as I was at the Club since I was 11-years-old and never ever thought I’d leave but it is good to get a second chance and put it right.”

The former Crewe Alexandra and Scunthorpe United man hopes that Rovers can push on, while he hopes his arrival can help the younger players in the side, with trio David Perkins, Ishmael Miller and Ben Pringle also bringing EFL experience to Mellon’s squad. 

Dagnall added: “I think they (Tranmere) have the momentum especially after last year, so they have the momentum from earlier in the season, they just have to kick on in the last few months of the season.

“There are a lot of good young lads at the Club, I was speaking to Micky and he’s excited about the future of the Football Club and I think he just wants that know-how to push on until the end of the season.”
