Tranmere Legends match raises £6.5k for suicide prevention charity

A Kevin Ellison double helped a Tranmere Rovers Legends side see off Wirral Radio in front of a crowd of 711 supporters. 

However, the game had a deeper meaning, with the money raised going to The Martin Gallier Project, a suicide prevention project based in New Ferry. 

At Ashville FC, a Tranmere Rovers legends side faced off against Birkenhead Sunday League side, Wirral Radio, with the ex-Rovers triumphing 3-1 and in the process, rasing £6,452, which is enough to fund 80 life-saving interventions. 

National League promotion heroes Steve McNulty and Richie Sutton, current striker Kane Hemmings and many more Tranmere Rovers legends in different capacities graced the pitch once more all for a good cause.

Adam Siddorn, Events & Fundraising Lead at the Martin Gallier Project said, “I’d like to thank every ex and current pro who turned up to Ashville and dusted off their boots in the name of charity.

“It was so humbling to receive so much support from Tranmere Rovers and the Super White Army who turned up in their numbers on Saturday, they really are a very special fan base and I can’t thank them enough for wanting to make a huge difference to suicide prevention across Wirral.

“We lost our friend Kieran to suicide four years ago so to see how successful the event was means so much to everyone at Wirral Radio FC”
