Kristian Dennis: "The fanbase are passionate and get behind the team"

6 June 2023

Tranmere Rovers' new signing Kristian Dennis sat down with us to talk about joining the Club this summer and to look ahead to the 2023/24 season.

The striker will join Rovers on July 1st following the end of his contract at Carlisle, after he clinched promotion with the Cumbrian side scoring 21 goals across the campaign.

Dennis says he is 'really happy' to join and is 'really impressed with the place' after arriving at The Campus to sign his two-year deal.

"Every time I've played here (at Prenton Park), I've enjoyed it. There seems to be a good fanbase who are passionate and get behind the team. Hopefully I can score goals for Tranmere and get us up the league.

"It's a really good facility here (at The Campus) and if everyone comes back with a fresh mindset and a fresh approach to the season, it should be a successful one which hopefully I'll be a part of.

"As soon as I heard of the interest, I thought it'd be something I'm interested in. I spoke to the manager, and luckily we've got it done.

"The fans are very loud, and tell you what they think of you as an opposition player! I do enjoy that, so hopefully they'll be cheering me now that I'm in the right kit!

"I've spoken to the manager and I was just impressed with everything he had to say with what role he sees me doing here."

On what he is looking to bring to the team, Kristian said, "Goals is the main thing, really, build-up play, helping other people get into the game and push Tranmere up the league, and have a successful season like I did last season."

His 20 league goals helped Carlisle clinch promotion in their play-off final with Stockport County, and Kristian also spoke about what a team needs to be able to achieve promotion from this division after experiencing it recently. "I think you need a good set of lads in the dressing room, when times are hard, everyone rallies round each other.

"At the end of the day, you just need results on the pitch so you've got to win games by any means necessary and fingers crossed we can do that here."

Kristian also told us what kind of striker he would describe himself as. "I'm someone who likes getting in the box and loves scoring goals. That's what I've done my whole career, base my game on goals and try and score as many as I can. When you score goals you win games usually, so that's my aim."

The striker also says that as well as imparting his experience on the younger players, he can pick things up from them too. "Even though I'm 33 myself, I could learn from them myself so if you have that blend together and get on well, it'll only benefit each other and it'll benefit the Football Club."
