Your Chance To Own Your Club
Football clubs outside the riches of the Premier
League are constantly nding it difcult to
balance their books, particularly in theseeconomic times and Tranmere Rovers are nodifferent.When I was a player at the club we were pushingfor a place in the Premier League backed bythe generous support of the Chairman, Peter Johnson. Today, things are very different andit is no secret that he wishes to sell the clubto someone who will have the best interestsof Tranmere Rovers Football Club at heart. Ihave witnessed myself what can be positivelyachieved at Chester FC since their club was reformed under fan ownership.The Tranmere Rovers Trust idea of a community owned club is one that I totallysupport and I wish them well with what they are trying to achieve.”
