Former Rovers heroes are back in the building; Nick Hilton's ROVERFLOW ROVERFLOW.

THE launch of the Tranmere Rovers for More Players Foundation proved a big success. Dozens of ex-players from the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s - plus a member of the current squad - attended the inaugural event at Aldo's at Prenton Park following the final game of the League One campaign against Swindon Town last Saturday.

Foundation chairman Steve Roper said: "It was a great night and we've had more players getting in touch, wanting to get involved following the first event. They want to know about the next one.

"It was a lively evening to say the least. One of the highlights was Eddie Bishop and Eric Nixon going head-to-head with Elvis Presley impressions.

"I would just to like to say a massive thanks to all those who attended."

The former players who attended included Nixon, Bishop, Stuart Barlow, Kenny Irons, John Achtenberg, Ian Muir, Steve Mungall, Ian (biffo) Griffiths, Gerry Casey, Alan King, Joey Pritchard, Roy Pointing, Chris Malkin, Jimmy Harvey, Shaun Garnett, Chris Camden, Steve Peplow and Bobby Tynan, not to mention current player Enoch Showumni.
