Ponticelli: It's a Club on the up

10 July 2019

Forward Jordan Ponticelli is delighted to be joining “a Club on the up” after he agreed a season-long loan deal at Tranmere Rovers from Coventry City.

Nuneaton-born Ponticelli, 20, becomes the eighth summer signing to link up with Micky Mellon’s side at Prenton Park ahead of the upcoming Sky Bet League One campaign.

Ponticelli, who has made 24 league appearances for parent club Coventry after turning professional with the Sky Blues in 2017, is relishing the chance to get going at Rovers in the third-tier.

He said: “It’s a Club on the up from the backroom staff to the players, it’s a very good squad, a very big team as well so it’s nice to come in where there’s positive vibes around the place with the promotions so it helps with confidence and trying to go out there and enjoy my football.

“It’s been a lot of hard work to get myself an opportunity for me to come here and obviously I’m really happy for it to all have gone through and now I’m here.”

“It’s always nice as a player to know that you are wanted at a club and Tranmere have shown that interest in me so I’m delighted to be here so hopefully I can reward that.

“I’m only 20 which in the grand scheme of things is quite young but my breakthrough season at Coventry City was when we were in League Two, I played a few games and scored a few goals, last year was quite unfortunate with two or three injuries but I’m back fit now and raring to go again.

“I want to do the best I can for Tranmere Rovers, I’m a striker and I’d like to score some goals for them, and I want to enjoy my time, work as hard as I can and hopefully goals will come.”
