Tranmere Rovers’ poetry compitition has reached a global audience as the Club's Icelandic fan group send in their entry!
The group, who call them selves the 'Peaky Whites’, visited the club back in January where they enjoyed a tour of Prenton Park before heading into the stands to watch Rovers in a Sky Bet League One fixture.
The fans who are from Iceland, have been in touch with the club ever since and have even taken part in Tranmere Rovers in the Community’s poetry competition.
Launching last week, the competition is aimed towards fans of the Club getting creative and keeping their minds active whilst in lockdown, by writing a poem about football and Tranmere Rovers.
The Peaky Whites sent in the following entry:
Mighty vikings, these strongest rovers,
Once they hit our Mersey‘s shore.
Today they‘re known as Tranmere Rovers!
The club that‘s best, of that I‘m sure.
Never have I ever seen, I say this true and rightly,
Such fearsome heroes with hearts that spark.
The sun is shining, ever so brightly,
over the fairest fields, of Prenton Park.
We would like to thank the Peaky Whites for taking the time to enter our poetry competition, we hope they are keeping safe during this uncertain time and can't wait to welcome them back to Prenton Park soon.
