In a special edition of A Trip To The Moon podcast, we build up to Saturday’s Play-Off Final by talking exclusively with Tranmere legend Mark Hughes about his multiple Wembley appearances.
Hughes was part of Johnny King’s legendary Rovers team that went from the Fourth Division to the brink of the Premier League. Among his five Wembley appearances with the club, Hughes played in two Play-off finals, including the 1-0 success over Bolton in 1991.
As we count down to the National League Play-Off Final this weekend, Hughes joined Matt and Rich to recall his Wembley appearances and discuss just what is needed for Rovers to get over the line this weekend.
Among the many anecdotes, the former centre-back talks about the immense pride of walking up the Wembley steps to the royal box to collect the trophy behind Eric Nixon, tears rolling down his face.
Hughes also discusses the late, great Johnny King and his impact on the club and his approach to the big games.
Mark, who made in excess of 250 appearances for the club, is a man who genuinely adores Tranmere and still attends every game.
