Prenton Park 300
TRANMERE ROVERS are hosting a family fun day this Saturday, March 10 to celebrate 100 years of football at Prenton Park.
The club is offering tickets at £5 for the game against Leyton Orient and will be holding a range of fun activities and entertainment including a Samba band, children’s competitions and football skills sessions.
The game, which coincides with the 25th anniversary of chairman Peter Johnson taking ownership at the club, will raise funds for Claire House and St John’s Hospice as part of ‘Help the Hospices Football Week’.
Chief Executive Mick Horton said: “We've got a lot planned both on and off the pitch. We've invited ex-players, local schools are involved and we're producing a special souvenir programme.
“There will be plenty of pre-match entertainment from 1.30pm including the npower No Power Hour – a football-themed activity for children which is running outside the ground – and music and dance from a local Samba group.
“Children from Devonshire Park Primary School, the site of TRFC’s previous ground, will be walking to the stadium with centenary flags they have made and will be parading on the pitch. We have invited as our special guest mascot our oldest season ticket holder who is 88-years-old. We will also have exclusive retro merchandise will be available in the club shop as a one-off.
“We want this to be a real celebration of the club and have as many Tranmere fans as possible coming along to support us. Tranmere is all about community and families and we hope the activities and reduced ticket prices will encourage people of all ages to get involved.”
