Micky's update

25 March 2020

Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon believes that the Club’s place in the Wirral community has never been more important and he has urged the SWA to follow government advice during the Coronavirus outbreak.
 
Rovers’ season has been postponed until April 30th at the earliest, with Mellon’s players currently undertaking exercise programmes from home.
 
And speaking to the Club website, Micky gave an update on the current situation surrounding his squad and he wants the Rovers supporters to be responsible in following government guidelines.
 
He said: “We’re following all of the expert’s advice and just staying away at the minute. It is all about keeping healthy.
 
“The players are all at home with their families where they should be. They all have exercise programmes, not just for football, but to keep them ticking over, but we absolutely see the necessity to do this.
 
“Health is at the forefront of our minds and we know the place the football will play in all of this when we all return hopefully to good health, but for the minute, it is keeping everyone healthy and being responsible.
 
“The Club shows its place in the community and shows how much it cares for its community and how much it always represents it.”
 
He feels that the Club are using our platform in the local area to be there for people in these difficult uncertain times. 
 
Mellon added: “We think about our supporters all of the time, and we want to make sure that we help them get through these tough times by doing all that we can to keep them informed.
 
“They are always in my thoughts and I want to make sure that they know we are fine and we’re following the government guidelines.
 
“We’ll get through this together and then at the end of it all, and we can get back where football is in society and that is putting a smile back on people’s faces again.”
 
Tranmere Rovers recently teamed up with HelpLink to offer support to vulnerable people who are self-isolating through daily phone calls and assistance with food deliveries. For more information, CLICK HERE. ​
