Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week. So last Sunday afternoon National League North side Southport earned a reply against Tranmere thanks to a stunning long-range strike from Bradley Bauress. The semi-professional side, whose starting 11 featured an HGV driver, a teacher and a professional dog walker, fell behind after 18 minutes when Jonny Smith’s curling finish from outside the area put League Two Tranmere ahead. However, Bauress’ effort, struck 30 yards from goal, drew the teams level with 20 minutes remaining at Prenton Park.

Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week. Tranmere seriously got their backsides handed to them on a plate as Grimsby Town fought their way to their biggest win since 2016. Grimsby thrashed promotion hopefuls Tranmere 5-2 to ease their worries at the foot of League Two. Tranmere found themselves ahead early on as the ball skidded through nicely for James Norwood to latch onto, enabling him to chip over the onrushing James McKeown for his 14th league goal of the season.

Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week. This Tuesday saw James Norwood’s superb season continue as he helped Tranmere safely progress into the second round of the FA Cup with a first-round replay win at Oxford City. Micky Mellon’s side can now look forward to hosting Southport in December, having eased past their National League South hosts.

Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week. Kabongo Tshimanga scored a stunning hat-trick for Oxford City but they were denied a major FA Cup upset by a late James Norwood goal in their draw at Tranmere. The National League South side fell behind to a first-half Connor Jennings goal but Tshimanga hit back either side of the break to put City in front. Micky Mellon made changes, bringing on Ben Tollitt and Johnny Smith in pursuit of more attacking width.

Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week. Yesterday, Tranmere secured an impressive victory over 10-man Exeter as Micky Mellon’s men continue to climb the League Two table. A brace from James Norwood either side of half-time saw off City, allowing Rovers to leapfrog their opponents and move to within a point of an automatic promotion place. Exeter started the match in third place with Dean Moxey and Lee Martin both testing the resistance of Tranmere goalkeeper Scott Davies early doors.

Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week and didn’t have to suffer Tranmere’s goalless draw at Yeovil yesterday. To be fair, neither side did enough to secure all three points in their League Two clash at Huish Park. Yeovil arguably had the better of the few opportunities in the game as a flicked header from Alex Fisher in the first half was tipped over by Scott Davies. After the break, the Glovers went reasonably close again as a cross from Jake Gray turned into a shot and, with Davies stranded, Luke McCoulough expertly headed away from under his own bar.

Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week – which is more than we can say Tranmere have. Rovers fell to a 6-0 defeat at the hands of League One side Shrewsbury Town in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night. Micky Mellon made ten changes from the starting team that faced Morecambe at the weekend meaning we were starting with a much weakened team against a team who are two leagues higher than Tranmere.

Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week – Tranmere have had a fantastic week with two games and two wins. Tuesday night saw the Super White Army return to winning way after a superb second-half performance to clinch an impressive 1-0 victory over league leaders Lincoln. The visitors had dominated the first half but James Norwood – who was sent off in injury time – scored his eighth goal of the season on 62 minutes and Rovers were able to hold out for a gutsy win.
