Danny Lloyd insists he will give 100 per cent effort as a Tranmere Rovers player as he addressed his Prenton Park switch.
The 28-year-old made his debut for the Club in Wednesday evening’s Papa John’s Trophy contest versus Wigan Athletic, providing an assist as well as converting from 12-yards in the resulting penalty shootout.
Lloyd has represented the likes of Stockport County, Peterborough United and Salford City during his career and is now delighted to become a Tranmere player.
“To get the chance to come and play for a club like Tranmere was something I wasn’t going to pass up on. I’m really pleased to get it over the line,” he said.
“It’s a massive club; people sometimes forget how big a club it is. It’s a massive part of the community in the Wirral. If I can match the passion that the fans show, it should hopefully go well.
“It’s been brilliant so far. There’s nothing like the banter that a dressing room provides. It’s a brilliant environment to be in and there’s a good group of lads here. I’m pleased to be involved. I know a few of the guys just from playing against them. As you’re playing games, you play against the same people all the time.”
Tranmere supporters will be hoping to see performances similar to that of Lloyd’s hat-trick at Prenton Park while representing Peterborough United in the FA Cup three years ago.
The former Posh midfielder believes this display epitomises his tireless work ethic and hopes the Super White Army will be witnessing further signs of this commitment in the weeks to come.
“I’ve got my fingers crossed that I can keep up my goalscoring record at Prenton Park, that will be good for everyone involved,” joked Lloyd. “It was a weird game as I’d only just broken into that team at Peterborough. That game and the run of matches before and after meant everything to me. The fans will see that from me, it’s 100 per cent every second of the game. There has never been a game where I have shied away.
“That has always been a prerequisite for me: no matter how well or poor you play, it’s 100 per cent effort and commitment every second on the pitch. There is not a manager who will be able to say any different about me. You have to give the best you’ve got while you’re on the pitch.”
