10 June 2021

‘The main reason why I have joined is the Club’s ambition’

Tranmere’s second signing of the summer, Chris Merrie, is relishing a new challenge after completing his move from League One side Wigan Athletic.

The 22-year-old put pen to paper on a two-year contract at Prenton Park, and quickly follows on from Wednesday’s announcement of centre back Tom Davies.

“I know a lot about the Club. I am a local lad and I know how much it means to play for Tranmere Rovers, admitted Merrie.

“The fans are so passionate, and I know a lot of people who support the Club. I am really looking forward to getting started. I can’t wait to be playing in front of them at Prenton Park.

“I am at an age where I want to play football regularly, I have come from a great club in Wigan Athletic and I have joined another great football club in Tranmere Rovers.

“I am ready for this new challenge now and I want to be successful with Tranmere.

“I am a midfielder who likes to compete in and out of possession. I will give everything to help this Club win football matches.

“Micky has told me what our aims are and what we want to achieve this season. Hopefully we can be successful, and everyone demands hard work first and foremost.

“I can’t wait to get going now.  I want to get a good pre-season behind me, and I will be ready to go. The main reason why I have joined is the Club’s ambition.”

Chris is now available to sponsor ahead of the 2021/22 season, with business, fan and SWA2 packages now available at fantastic rates.
