With the assistance of the Tranmere Rovers Official Supporters Club (TROSC), there were a couple of drummers in the North Star Environmental Kop Stand at last night’s game against Dover Athletic.
TROSC have been trying to come up with ways to improve the atmosphere at Prenton Park, and the addition of the drummers went down well with manager Micky Mellon who said he thoroughly enjoyed their performance as well as the performance and result on the pitch.
He told Tranmere Player HD: “I want to talk about the atmosphere. It was as good as anything I’ve been involved in for quite some time. The guy with the drum has changed the whole place, make sure he comes again!
“I loved every minute of it. It was a proper football match, a properly contested game at this stage of the season.
“It was no surprise to us how it went because we knew the way Dover play and they’re very good at it. They play a very different system to what you’re used to and you have to find of overcoming it and thankfully we did in the end.”
The manager spared some praise also for the two players involved in the winning goal.
Liam Ridehalgh’s free-kick was met by the head of Cole Stockton in the 68th minute to give Rovers the all-important three points and the manager said it was no surprise.
“You get the quality of Ridehalgh and the aggression and quality of Cole to meet the ball and we were delighted to see the ball go in.
“We know all about the qualities that Cole has and he went out there and showed us that.”
