In the latest instalment of A Trip To The Moon, Matt and Rich catch-up with former Tranmere and Everton forward Stuart Barlow.
Barlow joined Tranmere from Wigan in July 2000 and went on to spend three years at the club. The interview kicks-off by Stuart recalling how his move to Prenton Park came about.
The popular former striker has some great stories to tell from his career and his time at Tranmere, and wastes no time in getting in to his memories from that night against Southampton. Rovers trailed 0-3 at the break with hopes of an FA Cup Quarter Final with Liverpool fading away.
A second-half hat-trick by Paul Rideout set the scene for a late winner from Barlow to spark incredible scenes at Prenton Park. Stuart talks about that night in great detail, including why his celebrations after the game were cut a little bit short and how Aldo’s half-time team talk will live long in the memory.
In this in-depth interview, Stuart also recalls the two hat-tricks he scored inside a few days while playing for Tranmere and goes on to fondly recall his involvement in the hugely popular Tranmere team that won the Masters Football competition.
He’s a guy who clearly has a lot of affection for Tranmere, and it’s great to hear him talk so passionately about the club and the time he spent there.
