Came across this today whilst messin around on the computer, its from Ryan Ferguson, dated August 2019..Sorry, but don't know how to post it on the forum...Anyway, here are some of the interesting ones....

The word 'Tranmere' can be traced to AD 902.

In a 1924 reserve game vs Altrincham at Prenton, Dixie Dean lost a testicle after being on the receiving end of a rough challenge...( Dixies wiki page adds the following - 'immediately following the challenge, a teammate rubbed the area to ease the pain, Dean then shouted, "don't rub 'em, count 'em!")

Rovers legend 'Pongo Waring' used to sell cigarettes on matchdays at Prenton Park.

Bunny Bell was the first ever player to score a triple hat-trick in a football league game.

Max Power was Rovers top goalscorer in 2014-2015 season with 7 goals, Bunny Bell eclipsed that tally within 70 minutes in just one game.

Tranmere played a Czech Army XI at Prenton Park during WW II, raising money for The Spitfire Fund.

Tranmere had a baseball team in the 1940s, and they played at Prenton Park.

In 1963, Rovers flew to an away game for the very first time, they lost 5-0 at Exeter.

Dave Russell was offered the Scotland managers job ahead of Matt Busby.

Tranmere are the only English football club with three lions on their crest.

Rovers first four shirt sponsors all went bust.

In the 1991-1992 season, John Aldridge scored 18 times for Rovers in cup competitions alone.
