Former Tranmere Rovers left-back Aaron Cresswell has won his first major honour as a player, lifting the UEFA Conference League with West Ham United following their dramatic 2-1 victory over Fiorentina.
Although Cresswell never made it onto the pitch for the final on Wednesday night, he played a key role in the Hammers’ progression through the stages, and then ultimately winning it.
Cresswell came up through the Tranmere youth system after release from Liverpool, and he developed, ultimately earning himself a place in the starting eleven.
In three years in Rovers’ first team, the now 33-year-old played 70 games, netting on 5 occasions before moving to Ipswich Town.
He spent many good years at Portman Road before joining West Ham, and after being a regular for the Hammers, and now Moyes, he earned his just rewards by finally earning some glory.
