Micky: The structure behind the scenes is better than ever

8 May 2022

Rovers boss Micky Mellon offered his final post-match assessment of the season on Saturday, as the SWA missed out on a spot in the playoffs, despite securing three points at Leyton Orient.

Micky started his interview by praising the performance of the group to earn the victory at the weekend but admitted his disappointment that the squad came up short this season.

"I've got to congratulate the lads on winning a tough game. But we've come up short so we're disappointed about that but we're a young group and we'll get better."

A header from Kane Hemmings earned the SWA the three points at Brisbane Road, the Gaffer was delighted with the goal as it was something the squad have been working on in training. Micky also gave his verdict on the season as a whole and why he’s optimistic for the future.

"It's a cracking goal, we're delighted with the way it was executed it's something that we've wanted to do. It's something that we do a lot in training, so to see it get executed we're delighted with that.

"It's a bit of a hollow victory for all of us but we can do no more than try and win our game. We're a very young group, there's six or seven that's played a 100 league games and the new players to the squad will be here again for next season.

"The structure behind the scenes is better than it's ever been, so it's all there for Tranmere to keep growing now, to keep adding to this young group who will undoubtedly learn from the experiences of this year."

Micky also touched on the fans after Rovers secured an away win, something that has been hard to come by this season. He believes that the squad have let the fans down on the road this campaign, which is something that will be reflected on over the summer.

"We've let the away fans down this year, we continually keep saying that. They've been fabulous. The home fans we haven't let down, but the ones who travel up and down at times we haven't shown the qualities necessary in order to try and gain the results, we were one result short.

"Listen, it's a good squad, it's a good group of players, Tranmere will always be a fantastic football club that's for sure. That will never change. 

"We'll just reflect, we'll comb over what's happened this season and undoubtedly we'll add the players that we believe can help us fill the gaps that was needed in order to try and get in the shakeup."
