Date of birth
Defender Sid Nelson became a Tranmere Rovers player when he signed on loan from Championship side Millwall in the January transfer window.
Born in the Lewisham area of London, Nelson started out in Millwall’s academy at the age of eight, progressing through their youth system to captain the club’s youth team to earn his professional contract at The Den.
Turning professional at the South-East London club in August 2014, Nelson made his Millwall first-team debut in the December of that year during a 2-0 home defeat to AFC Bournemouth.
Nelson would go on to make 14 appearances for the Lions in the second-tier throughout the rest of that season.
And since then, he has turned out a further 12 times for Millwall but has spent most of his career so far away from The Den on loan.
Stints at Newport County, Yeovil Town and Chesterfield, where he made a combined total of 41 EFL appearances gave him first-team experience in League Two.
The 23-year-old returned to the fourth-tier on loan at the start of the 2018/19 season when he signed for Swindon Town, playing in 20 games for the Robins during the first-half the campaign which he spent at the County Ground.
Following the end of his temporary stay in Wiltshire, Nelson was loaned out again, signing for TRFC in January where he joins Micky Mellon’s men until the end of the current season.
