Tranmere Rovers midfielder Chris Merrie is delighted to extend his stay at Prenton Park after signing a new one-year contract with the Club, and has spoken about the reasons behind his decision, praising the fans for their effect on his time here so far.
Merrie started 33 games for Rovers last season, and became an important member of the midfield prior to his injury at Carlisle during the Easter period.
After signing his new deal, Merrie spoke about how much he has enjoyed his time with Tranmere so far.
“I’m made up it’s finally done and I’m just looking forward to getting myself fully fit and getting back into it.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time especially when I’ve got the chance to play. It's a really good club to play for with the fans, the ground, everything about it, it's really good here."
Merrie also said he is looking forward to working Ian Dawes again after he was appointed Rovers' permanent manager, as well as new technical director Nigel Adkins and assistant manager Neil Danns: "It's exciting. It wasn't the best of seasons for us last year so hopefully we can kick on with the help of all the new staff members."
The midfielder also spoke of the fans' help during his time at Prenton Park so far: "They've been massive for me. Even when I was out of the team, a lot of the fans helped me telling me I'd done really well when I'd been in the team, and that really helps you."
