Tranmere Rovers Football Club 特兰米尔流浪足球俱乐部
Tranmere Rovers Football Club is an English football club, currently playing in Football League One (英格兰足球甲级联赛) and based at Prenton Park, Prenton, Birkenhead - just across the River Mersey from the two Premiership Clubs of Liverpool F.C. and Everton F.C. (Premier League 英格兰足球超级联赛，是英国最高级别的足球联赛。)
The club was founded as Belmont F.C. in 1884, changing name to Tranmere Rovers a year later. The club played its first match in the Liverpool & District Challenge Cup in 1886. In 1921/22 the club joined the newly formed Third Division North of the Football League. Though they played in blue shirts and white shorts for much of their existence, the club's traditional home kit is now regarded as white shirt, shorts and socks, with blue trim. The 2006/07 away kit is black with silver trim.
Tranmere is a district in south Birkenhead on the eastern side of the Wirral Peninsula. Tranmere alone has a population of 11,668 (2001). The area is made up of industrial buildings and Victorian terraced houses. Its name was given by Norwegian Vikings who settled and colonized Wirral in the 10th century. Tranmere in Old Norse is Trani-melr "Cranebird sandbank" or "sandbank with the Cranebirds".
It is best known for its football club, Tranmere Rovers F.C., who incidentally are the only team in the English league with a Viking name. 'Tran' were winners of the 1934-5 Welsh Cup.
Following Brian Little's resignation, Ronnie Moore was appointed manager in June 2006, from Oldham Athletic.
Between 1991 and 2001 they were in the second tier of the English league, reaching the playoffs three times and the League Cup final once before being relegated.
John Aldridge, the former Liverpool striker who scored nearly 500 goals in his professional career, was appointed player-manager of Tranmere in March 1996 and remained at the helm for five years, although he hung up his boots in 1998. His predecessor was John King, who took Rovers from the brink of losing their league status to the brink of reaching the Premiership.
Other well known players to wear a Tranmere shirt include Dixie Dean, 'Pongo'Waring, Derek Mountfield, Colin Clarke, Jason McAteer, Pat Nevin, John McGreal, John Morrisey, Clint Hill, Eric Nixon, Steve Simonsen, Ian Moore, Alan Mahon, Ryan Taylor, Iain Hume, Ged Brannan and Jason Koumas.
Tranmere play their home games at Prenton Park, which is located in Birkenhead, Cheshire. The club has faced years of strong competition for both players and supporters from two much bigger clubs - Liverpool and Everton - just across the River Mersey.
