Connor Jennings has joined National League side Stockport County on a free transfer having announced he was leaving Tranmere yesterday.
Jennings is a firm fan favourite at Prenton Park and was instrumental in helping the club achieve back-to-back promotions from the National League to League One.
He made 140 appearances for Rovers in four memorable seasons with the club, scoring 27 goals including the winner at Wembley in the League Two promotion final last May.
He also provided the assist for James Norwood’s winning goal in the 2018 National League play-off final, a game in which he was introduced as a sub barely a week after being released from hospital following serious illness.
It is that commitment to the cause which endeared him to the SWA, along with countless huge performances, numerous brilliant goals and being an all-round good guy.
He will be hugely missed by the fans, all of whom will no doubt wish him well at County where he will play alongside his brother James who joined the Hatters from Wrexham today.
However, as far as Tranmere is concerned, the move is the latest significant piece of news which sets alarm bells ringing for fans.
Having already lost manager Micky Mellon, there has been no update recently as to whether the club are going to fight the EFL’s decision demote us (effectively). With the season now only weeks away, we are seemingly heading into a League Two campaign with no justice being served.
As a club favourite leaves and only 10 of last seasons squad under contract, Tranmere fans are understandably worried. There has been no update from the club for more than a week and many EFL clubs are set to return to training next week.
