THE two Matts found themselves double booked into action for both Tranmere and Everton this week.
Right-back Matthew Pennington and winger Matthew Kennedy may be on loan at Prenton Park but under the terms of youth loans, they continue to be on call to their parent club.
The two 19-year-olds played the full 90 minutes of an under-21s fixture for Everton at Tottenham on Monday night. The match finished goalless.
Then the pair headed back to Prenton Park to prepare for Rovers League One fixture against Preston this afternoon.
Pennington’s loan with Tranmere was extended into a second month this week while manager Ronnie Moore is hopeful a similar arrangement will be made over Kennedy, who is due to complete his first month with Rovers today.
TRANMERE’S reserve team game against Oldham Athletic, which was due to be played on Tuesday February 11, is now to be played on the next day, Wednesday February 12, at Cammell Laird FC. The kick-off is 1pm.
Tranmere’s Cheshire Senior Cup second round tie against 1874 Northwich will take place on Wednesday February 19, kick off 7.45pm at Cammell Laird FC.
