THE Tranmere Rovers first team squad’s Friday morning breakfast had an unusual twist in aid of Children in Need!
Each week a player is selected from Thursday’s training session to prepare tea, toast, crumpets and cereal for the rest of the squad before their pre-match meeting.
However, this week Rovers captain John Welsh was joined in the kitchen by Chief Executive Mick Horton in full chef’s uniform while office staff served the players dressed as Hilda Ogden style tea ladies in a specially decorated canteen.
The morning’s fundraising efforts were topped off by a cheque for £2,500 from the Johnson Foundation presented by the chairman Peter Johnson.
John Welsh said: “Anything for Children in Need is brilliant and the lads are happy to help. Plus it was nice to have a bit of help from Mick in the kitchen.
“I’ve got all the lads to sign the Children in Need apron I had on and that’s going to be auctioned to raise money too.”
SUPPORTERS can bid for the special signed apron worn by John from 8pm on Friday at http://tinyurl.com/trfcapron.
