International Women’s Day 2023 at Tranmere Rovers

8 March 2023

Here at Tranmere Rovers, we have been celebrating International Women’s Day (today, Wednesday 8th March) in several ways over the last couple of weeks.

Tranmere Rovers dedicated the rearranged fixture against Crawley Town on Tuesday 28th February to celebrating International Women’s Day 2023.

Members of the Tranmere Rovers Women First Team took part in a crossbar challenge on the pitch at half-time, which you will be able to watch in full later today on Tranmere Rovers in the Community and Tranmere Rovers Women’s social media channels (@TRFCCommunity and @TRFCWomen).

Our under-14 girls team came together to raise money in a bucket collection prior to the match to support the development of women’s football at Tranmere Rovers, raising a fantastic £365.37.

The team from Wirral Grammar School for Girls who recently won their EFL Utilita Girls Cup Area Final attended the game as flag bearers ahead of their Regional Final later the same week, where they finished 3rd.

We have also posted interviews with key women around the Club, including from all of the perspectives of a fan as we spoke to Audrey Evans who has followed Rovers for 75 years, a player as we spoke to Jess Durr who now plays for the Women’s First Team after joining our girls’ football sessions aged six, and a staff member as we spoke to Louise Edwards, Head of Women’s and Girls’ Football here at Tranmere Rovers. You will also be able to hear from another of our community team, Livv Edwards, later this International Women’s Day via our social media channels.

We also heard from our #HerGameToo representatives, Hannah Naylor and Phil Bryan, who work to ensure football is everyone’s game. By working closely with the #HerGameToo campaign we hope to send a message to all women thinking of coming to a match that we are committed to ensuring Prenton Park is a safe and welcoming environment for all supporters, and you heard from both of our #HerGameToo representatives.

There was also a page in the match programme dedicated to celebrating the women in our lives, with contributions coming in from Rovers supporters.

We invited several groups and charities who work with women and girls on the Wirral to come along to the game free of charge, with groups from organisations such as Wirral Community Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust and LIPA coming along as well as all of our Women’s First Team and girls’ teams at all ages.

There was also a special playlist celebrating International Women’s Day playing out around Prenton Park ahead of the game and at half time.

Today, on International Women's Day, let's celebrate the women in our lives and their achievements.
