Scott Davies fully behind combat against gambling

23 April 2020

Club Captain Scott Davies has been vocal about his support for the Club’s initiative set up to help those affected by gambling issues.

Rovers have teamed up with the NHS, the Big Step and Gamban services to support individuals and families in the local and wider community.

And Scott, having seen the first-hand negative impact that gambling can have, is fully behind the project.

Davies said: “I think it’s a fantastic initiative and something that is needed in the community and we can help.

“I’ve seen first hand at what gambling can do to people and it’s not a nice thing. Sometimes people don’t realise that there is help out there.

“So, for Tranmere to come forward and put this initiative together to help the community, it is fantastic.

“It is just about making people aware that there is help out there and people are there to talk to them in times of need.

“The whole point of the initiative is to show the community that Tranmere are more than a Football Club, they are there to help people as well.

“The community is a huge part of our Football Club so if we can give something back and help people, then that’s fantastic.

“Boredom has always been a part of any issues that you can get yourself into, and right now it is at the forefront that people are stuck in their homes with not much to do so hopefully they are not gambling and putting themselves in places that will harm them in the future.”

Davies believes that with the Club teaming up with different organisations for people who have been impacted by gambling, it will only serve as a positive.

He added: “The initiative is fantastic, and I can only credit the Football Club and the owners for pushing this forward and people don’t realise that there is help out there, and for it to be in the public eye is fantastic.

 “If you all come together you can achieve whatever you want, and this is no different. It is great that all of these huge companies are coming together to help people in the community which is only going to have an impact on the community of the Wirral and wider.”
