2 1/2 years. Hopefully he can now concentrate a bit better now his short term future is more secure

Excellent news. A legend like Nikko.
Should hand over captaincy to Neil Danns though

made up scotty has signed new contract. he is our best goalie since the big E. also one of my favourite ex Tranmere goalies is scotty endersby. I thought even though he was not that tall he was a cracking goalkeeper. I now believe he is working as a qualified chef in a restaurant down south.

There's one or two posters in here that probably won't be happy at this news...

I am neither happy nor unhappy... it makes sense to lock in Davies as we can relax a bit now that we don't have him leave in June on a free ... now if we have the money we need to find a keeper who can genuinely challenge him for the jersey as that isn't Pilling....

Think possibly it was John Achterberg who for me was the best keeper since big E between the sticks not knocking Davies but Achhterberg controlled the penalty area especially in the air(big E did as well) and with both Achterberg and Eric we had keepers that owned the penalty area and the defence knew it.

Having said that glad Scotty signed on longer he just needs some one else to snapping at his heels to keep him on his toes.

Might have been down to both being taller as far as balls in the air this would be an advantage over Davies.

Oh yes there is a two part article in the Liverpool Echo tonight(and Tomorrow) about Achterberg being Goalkeeper coach for Liverpool for the last ten years(boy that times gone since he left us)

also one of my favourite all time Tranmere rovers goalkeepers was welsh international legend and former everton keeper dai davies. I have actually got a copy of his autobiography it is called NEVER SAY DAI - and there is a full chapter on his time at Tranmere rovers etc. I am not sure how many Tranmere fans have read it but he really opens up about his time at prenton park. it is very interesting.

We will never bring in anybody to challenge our number 1 (barring finding a wonderkid at the campus). Mostly as we wouldnt be able to justify the expense of having one high paid player on the bench. Id have thought most clubs at this level have their number one then a kid or a journyman pro

All the players at this level are journeyman pros!
