Micky on January so far...

10 January 2019

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon revealed the Club are always actively looking to improve the squad after a busy start to the January transfer window.

So far, Rovers have signed Harvey Gilmour on a permanent contract after the promising midfielder impressed during his initial loan spell at Prenton Park. Mellon has also recruited experienced duo Ishmael Miller and David Perkins, who have more than 850 league appearances between them, on permanent contracts, and all three are available for selection ahead of this weekend’s game at Cheltenham Town.

The Club has also seen long serving defender Ritchie Sutton, who played an integral part in helping Tranmere win promotion back to the EFL, depart to join Morecambe, whilst Ben Tollitt and Cole Stockton have joined non-league side Wrexham on loan.

“We will always keep on trying to improve the group,” admitted the manager. “It will help the Club move forward.

“When an opportunity presents itself when a certain player becomes available and they will improve the group, it has to be in the structure of what we can do and achieve, and that is what has happened with the boys that have come in. It is the same with other football clubs, that’s how it works.

“We have got 22 games left, so the ambitions are to win as many matches as possible. First of all, we will make sure we are in the division, then push for the Play-Offs and push on even higher. We’ll try to win as many games as possible, we’ll go and attack it and get ourselves in to a position, we are an ambitious football club.”
