Gilmour delighted to stay at Rovers

7 January 2019

Tranmere Rovers midfielder Harvey Gilmour is focused on helping the Club get back to ‘where they belong’ after putting pen to paper on an 18-month contract at Prenton Park.

The 20-year-old agreed terms on a permanent move after a successful loan spell from Championship side Sheffield United, and he is excited he can continue his development under the guidance of manager Micky Mellon.

Speaking after the completion of his move, Gilmour said: “ I am glad it is all sorted now, it is a massive Club and the focus is now on the rest of the season and reaching the Play-Offs.

“The gaffer brought me in last year and I have learnt a lot off the likes of Ollie Banks and so many other players in the squad.

“I have loved my time here; the gaffer has given me so many opportunities to play and I can’t thank him enough.”

Gilmour has made a bright start to life as a Tranmere Rovers player, featuring 23 times so far, scoring three times including two match winners against Morecambe and Macclesfield Town.

His efforts saw the youngster named as the EFL Young Player of the Month for October and Gilmour hopes he can continue his form from the first half of the season.

He continued: “I’d like to think winning the EFL Young Player of the Month award was a statement of intent and hopefully if I keep doing what I am doing, I can win the award again.

I am focused on getting this team back to where they belong. We should be fighting to get promoted, we are as good as any team and if you look at the Lincoln game a couple of months ago, we played exceptionally well, and it shows how far the Club has come.

I had to mature quickly but it is a completely different game compared to U23 football. I am thankful to Sheffield United for giving me the opportunity to sign for Tranmere Rovers.”
