Tranmere sign local lad Ryan Watson

Tranmere Rovers Football Club has announced the signing of midfielder Ryan Watson.

The 27-year-old, who scored eight times in League One last season for Northampton Town, has put pen to paper on a two-year contract at Prenton Pak. 

Watson, who lives in New Brighton, grew up as a Rovers supporter and his family are Tranmere fans. 

Manager Micky Mellon said, “We have been working extremely hard to get this deal done. Ryan attracted interest from a number of clubs, but he only wanted to play for Tranmere.

“He is from New Brighton; he is a local lad, and his family are Tranmere Rovers supporters.

“It is a brilliant that we are bringing more local lads back to the Club with the quality Ryan possesses.

“He is a very talented player, and everyone can see that by just looking at his stats and he can only make us better as a team. 

“He has real energy and a desire to score goals. The added bonus that Ryan is a Tranmere man made the deal a no brainer.

“At the end of the day, if I could have 11 Tranmere fans playing for this Club, how good would that be? So, when the opportunity presented itself to get a boy who grew up as a Tranmere fan, with the talent he has, it is a brilliant signing. 

“When I spoke to Ryan, I felt both his and his family’s passion for the Club. I can’t wait for his family to see him play for Tranmere.”
