Just to put things in context:
10. Tranmere 7 Hartlepools United 1, 08.02.30 (Ridding 3, Urmson 2, Charlton 2)
A huge home win, perhaps inspired by Rovers’ 7-2 defeat in the North East a week earlier, as Bert Cooke’s side followed up their loss against Darlington with a resounding victory over Hartlepools.
Tranmere 7 Nelson 1, 01.11.30 (Watts 2, Dixon 2, Kennedy 2, Meston)
Rovers finished the season as leading scorers with 111 goals in Division Three North, seven of them coming against Nelson in the middle of a five match winning streak.
Tranmere 7 Southport 1, 21.09.62 (Arnell 3, Hickson 2, Jones, Gubbins)
After a slow start to the season and only one point from six games, Dave Russell’s side had sprung to life with a 6-1 win over Hartlepools United and followed it up later that month with a big win over local rivals Southport.
Tranmere 7 Torquay United 1, 03.10.75 (Moore 2, James 2, Mitchell 2, Young)
Rovers had won three games in a row when Torquay United came to Prenton Park and John King’s side went goal crazy in front of 2,870 supporters.
8. Tranmere 7 Rochdale 0, 15.10.21 (Cunningham 4, Groves 2, Bullough)
The Club’s first season in the Football League was less than two months old when they smashed seven unanswered goals past the eventual bottom placed side Rochdale.
Tranmere 7 Peterborough United 0, 29.10.85 (Muir 4, Worthington 2, Morrissey)
There were less than 1,500 inside Prenton Park but they were treated to a fantastic performance as Ian Muir netted four times and player manager Frank Worthington scored twice.
7. Tranmere 8 Durham City 3, 15.01.27 (Flanagan 2, Jones 2, Rimmer, Matthews, White)
A fortnight earlier Bert Cooke’s side had defeated Barrow 7-2 and their free scoring continued with this huge win over Durham City at Prenton Park.
6. Tranmere 8 Accrington Stanley 1, 26.09.31 (Whitehurst 4, Meston 2, Fishwick, Urmson)
Another season where Tranmere topped the scoring charts, a 6-1 win over Rotherham United was followed up a few weeks later with a massive victory over Accrington.
5. Tranmere 8 Accrington Stanley 0, 17.01.31 (Kennedy 4, Dixon 3, Watts)
Accrington had also been on the receiving end of a Tranmere thumping eight months earlier, losing 8-0 at Prenton Park.
4. Tranmere 9 Rochdale 1, 25.12.31 (Watts 5, Dixon 2, Whitehurst, Meston)
Farewell Watts found the net five times for Tranmere in this Christmas Day football present to the Rovers fans.
3. Tranmere 9 Accrington Stanley 0, 18.04.59 (Rowley 4, Williams, Finney, Eglington, 2 own goals)
While Rovers had scored fairly frequently throughout 1958-59, there was nothing to suggest this nine goal drubbing of Accrington Stanley was on the cards. More than 8,000 were inside Prenton Park to witness it.
2. Tranmere 11 Durham City 1, 07.01.28 (Waring 6, Littlehales 2, Cartman, Jones, own goal)
Pongo Waring set a club record with his six goals as Durham City were thrashed at Prenton Park as Rovers’ prepared for their FA Cup third round tie against Nottingham Forest in style.
1. Tranmere 13 Oldham 4, 26.12.35 (Bell 9, Woodward 2, Urmson, MacDonald)
Bunny Bell smashed Waring’s record with his incredible nine goal haul in this Boxing Day win over Oldham Athletic. Bell even missed a penalty in the fixture which is likely to forever stand as the Club’s record for most goals in a game.
Plus the Club’s three biggest FA Cup wins are:
Tranmere 13 Oswestry 0, 10.10.14
Tranmere 9 AP Leamington 0, 24.11.79
Tranmere 8 Ashington 1, 22.11.52
