Wirral FC, a local Sunday league team have donated £1,000 towards the Tranmere Rovers community ticket scheme ahead of the first game of the season against Rochdale!
TRFC’s community ticket scheme initiative provides home tickets to fixtures at Prenton Park for disadvantaged people based in the local Wirral area.
The scheme currently works with several charities and community groups and gives those residents who may not be able to get to Prenton Park, the opportunity to come and watch live football.
Wirral FC’s Adam Siddorn, who helped raise the funds for TRFC’s community ticket scheme, said: “We have been going about five or six-years now and every year we like to do something for charity local to the Wirral, we do it every year and hopefully we’ll do it again next year.
“This year we chose to give money to the ticket fund at Tranmere Rovers which is the Club we support and love, so it is great to raise money.”
Siddorn, who also commentates for TRFC Radio, went on to explain that Wirral FC have had a relationship with Tranmere stretching back over a prolonged period of time, with the Club hosting TRFC legends matches, including May’s event.
He added: “We had the legends match, so it was good to raise money for the fund from that and we raised £1,000 which is brilliant.
“We are very grateful to Tranmere Rovers, it is a community Club and we have our charity events and their support allows us to raise our money.
“Without the support of the ex-pros, the current pros and Tranmere Rovers, it would have been impossible for us to raise that amount of money, so we are grateful to the ex-pros who come down and play in those games.
“We have got a really strong relationship with Tranmere which is great for everyone involved.”
Everyone at Tranmere Rovers would like to thank Wirral FC for their fantastic contribution. To find out more about the Club's work in the Community and TRIC, Click here.
