Woolery has his aim set on promotion at Tranmere

14 January 2021

Kaiyne Woolery wants to push on in a Tranmere Rovers shirt after signing a new contract extension until the end of the season.

Woolery, 26, has made 22 appearances in all competitions since arriving at Prenton Park in September, and has scored three goals for Keith Hill’s side.

And having tasted promotion success in Sky Bet League Two as a Swindon Town player last term, Woolery wants more of the same at TRFC.

Woolery said: “I’m delighted to finally get it sorted out and I can’t wait to push on now and hopefully help us go for promotion.

“I’ve enjoyed it here a lot. All of the boys have been brilliant, the facilities have been brilliant, and it’s just the results haven’t always gone our way but hopefully things will start to change.

“We went on an unbeaten run so it shows what we can do when we all come together, so hopefully we can get back to how we were playing before.

“In this league, three teams go up automatically and one through the play-offs, so if we go on a run, we will be right up there.”
Woolery believes that Rovers must go with the same mentality that has served them well in previous games during their winning run earlier in the campaign.

Tranmere visit Stevenage on Saturday afternoon as they return to league action down in Hertfordshire.

He added: “This year has been so strange with no fans and completely different teams who don’t normally perform who are doing better, and COVID as well.

“You can’t really judge who you are playing this year, so you just have to go and turn up with the same mentality to go and win every game now.

“We’re going to have Saturday-Tuesday, Saturday-Tuesday now for a while so the squad is going to get used and everyone is going to be relied on.

“The manager is adding his own little bits now and he expects us to run a lot harder, and you can see that in the performances as everyone is working hard for each other.”
