ranmere Rovers forward James Vaughan is looking forward to “the challenge” having signed on loan from Bradford City on Wednesday.
The 31-year-old is eligible to make his Rovers debut this Saturday afternoon when Micky Mellon’s men contest a Sky Bet League One fixture away at local rivals Bolton Wanderers.
And Vaughan, who captained parent club Bradford earlier this term, scoring 11 goals prior to his Prenton Park switch, is relishing the chance to get started in a Tranmere shirt.
Vaughan said: “I’m looking forward to the challenge and the battle. The lads in there are really confident, and so they should be. I’ve seen a lot of quality in the training and the games I’ve been watching, and we’re looking forward to the battle.
“As a Club, everyone needs to be pulling in the right direction. The first people that we’ll look to get us through games is the fans and as long as we give them something to cheer about, I’m sure they will right behind us and together we can do good things.
“It’s a Club that you know about, I’ve played against Tranmere a lot, it’s good to finally be here and I’m just looking forward to getting going.
“As a striker you want to score as many goals as you can and that’s something I want to help the team with, and I’m looking forward to playing with a lot of the players who I’ve played with before and I know what they can do so hopefully it will be good.
“Micky knows that I’m an experienced player, he knows what I’m about, I know what the team’s about, and I’ll just try and fit in that and help the team as much as I can.
“Once I found out Tranmere was an option, it was something I wanted to pursue and I’m just really happy to be here.
“I know Dannzy (Neil Danns), Calum Woods and Peter Clarke just to name a few, so I’m just really looking forward to getting settled in and getting to know everyone and hopefully they can understand how I play.”
