Tranmere Rovers boss Gary Brabin was pleased with his team’s display as they kicked off the 2016-17 season with a 2-0 win on the road at Bromley.

James Norwood grabbed both of Rovers’ goals and the manager said that the hard work done over the summer started to reap rewards.brabin

He told Tranmere Player: “We’ve worked really well over pre-season and it is all about getting a good start.

“I thought we looked really good for the first 20 minutes and got a goal up.

“The opposition today were strong and they made it difficult for us but we looked strong and difficult to break down.

“We looked a threat and scored two good goals and could have had more but overall, we acquitted ourselves really well and it was a really good performance.”

Brabin was particularly happy with the performance of his forward players and said that the opening goal came from things they had worked on in training.

He added: “The first goal came from little things we have been working on to get the best out of the forward players.

“We have good players and they need to know how to compliment each other so we need to get the best out of those individuals.”
