Tranmere Rovers have been selected as a finalist for the category of Community Club of the Year at the Ladbrokes Northwest Football Awards 2019.
The awards ceremony will take place on Monday 11th November at The Point, Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester, home of Lancashire County Cricket Club.
TRFC have been shortlisted for Community Club of the Year, alongside fellow finalists Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic.
The Ladbrokes Northwest Football Awards celebrate the region’s game, both on and off the pitch.
Tranmere Rovers in the Community engages with tens of thousands of people across the Wirral peninsula and beyond each year.
Working across four core themes of Community Engagement, Health, Education and Sports Participation - the community team’s work has expanded from coaching in schools to a wide range of innovative projects covering all ages and abilities.
Emma Palios, Community Development Manager, said: “We are delighted to be finalists in the North West Football Awards for Community Club of the Year.
“The TRIC team work hard all year round to reach as many people as possible, from the very young to the elderly, offering opportunities to help improve the local community’s physical, mental and social wellbeing.
“We have a reputation for delivering quality programmes, and that comes from the energy and effort put in by all those that work at Tranmere Rovers in the Community; so it is fantastic that this is being recognised by being nominated for Community Club of the Year.”
Meanwhile, Rovers are up for three other awards taking place on the night, with goalkeeper Scott Davies nominated for League Two Player of the Year, Harvey Gilmour in the Rising Star of the Year category and Micky Mellon is a finalist for Manager of the Year.
