Pringle has his Tranmere target set

22 January 2019

Ben Pringle is looking forward to the challenge ahead at Tranmere Rovers after the midfielder completed a loan switch to Prenton Park until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old links up with Micky Mellon’s side from Championship outfit Preston North End, and becomes the fourth signing of the January transfer window after David Perkins, Ishmael Miller and Harvey Gilmour.

Pringle revealed that it was a 'no brainer' to join TRFC when he was made aware of interest from the Club.

Speaking of how the move came about, he said: “It was pretty quick to be honest, I heard about it last week that there was just an interest from the Club, as soon as I knew about it I spoke to my agent and it was a no brainer to come here really so I’m really pleased to be here.”

Pringle, has a wealth of experience in League Two, having won promotion from this division with Rotherham United in 2013, and most recently spending the first half of this season on loan at Grimsby Town, where he played against Tranmere at Blundell Park back in November.

And now he wants to help Rovers win promotion from the division, with Mellon’s men on the cusp of the Play-off places, and Pringle believes there is no reason that TRFC can’t get promoted.

He continued: “I’ve played in this league before with Rotherham so I’m just looking forward to getting started now.

“Everybody will be the same here, but we’ll want to get in to the Play-Offs, that’s the realistic goal that everyone will be working towards so I’m looking forward to getting started.

“Looking at the table and looking at the progress of the Club, you have got to be aiming high, there’s no reason why we can’t achieve those things.”

The former Fulham and Derby County man is relishing the opportunity to get straight in to action in a TRFC shirt, and he wants to pass on his knowledge of League Two to some of his new team-mates who are new to the division this season.

Pringle added: “Speaking to the gaffer, that’s something he was after, players who have got experience of playing in the league and had success in it before, obviously I’m coming to play but to help anyone I can to progress.

“It’s a quick change around and straight in to it which is what you want really.”
