Rover and Out, Tranmere Rovers’ LGBT Fan Group, have been shortlisted for the first-ever Fans for Diversity Award later this month.
In partnership with Kick It Out, the award ceremony will take place at the headquarters of Amnesty International in London on Friday 20th September and will celebrate the diversity of football fans from across the country.
Rover and Out have been shortlisted for the Sky Bet League Two award, which covers the 2018/19 season.
Joining Rover and Out as nominations are Lady Imps Supporters Association (Lincoln City), Mariners’ Trust (Grimsby Town) and Port Vale Supporters Club.
Adam Siddorn, co-founder of Rover and Out, said: “We found out on Thursday that we had been nominated for the League Two award and considering that we only started 18-months ago, it is a massive honour to have our Club represented in the way it is.
“To be going down there and to be nominated is tremendous. It is at the head of Amnesty International a week on Friday, so we are sending a representative down to go and see if we win.
“We have come so far in past 18-months and I think that is down to the acceptance from the fans and the Club, and the support from the fans and the Club has been phenomenal.
“We are going down there and we are up against some tough competition and it is a privilege and honour to be thought of for a national award and to have Tranmere Rovers’ name associated with that makes us very proud.”
