James Norris signs for Rovers on season-long loan

1 September 2023

Tranmere Rovers are delighted to confirm the signing of James Norris from Liverpool on a season-long loan.

Norris is a left-back who can also play in midfield.

He made his professional debut for Liverpool in December 2019, coming on as a substitute against Aston Villa in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

The 20-year-old has represented England at youth levels from under-16 up to under-19.

Norris has experience winning silverware with England and Liverpool. He was part of the England under-17 side which lifted the Syrenka Cup in 2019, as well as winning the Lancashire Senior Cup with Liverpool’s under-23s in 2022.

The youngster will join up with the squad ahead of this weekend’s clash against Wrexham at Prenton Park.

Manager Ian Dawes said: “I've known James for a long time from when I worked at Liverpool with the younger age groups. He suits the mentality, he works hard, he competes, he runs, he's tenacious, always all in.

"He never lets you down in his approach to the game and his commitment, and it's good to have him in."

On signing for Rovers, Norris said: “I'm excited. I can't wait to get going. As soon as I found out that it was going to go through, I was made up.

"This is the first Club I came to. This is where I signed my first football contract when I was 8 or 9, and then moved on to Liverpool so it's come back around and I'm back at Tranmere. I can't wait to get playing for them.

"I know it's a massive Club round here, everyone knows who Tranmere are around Liverpool. It'll be a privilege to play here."
