Loooking Forward to Friday

Walsall's away day sequence comes to an end on Friday at Tranmere's Prenton Park.Like ourselves Tranmere have lived in the shadow of their Merseyside rivals, Everton and Liverpool.So what can any new visitors to Birkenhead expect.

One end has a large newish stand (the Kop Stand) that dwarfs the rest of the ground and replaced a former open terrace. This end used to house both home & away supporters, but has now been changed to home fans only. At the opposite end, away fans are housed in another relatively new stand called the Cowshed. It has an electric scoreboard on its roof, and looks a little strange as one side has more rows than the other, giving a sloping effect. One side of the ground has a large, older Main Stand, while the John King Stand (formerly the Borough Road Stand) opposite is smaller, running the entire length of the pitch.

After a long campaign by Tranmere fans, the large Kop End is now purely for home fans. Away fans are housed in the opposite end, the affectionately named Cowshed. However, you will be relieved that the only connection with a real cowshed is the name, as the fairly new covered, all seated stand, has good facilities and unhindered views of the playing action. It can hold up to 2,500 fans.

There is a car park at the ground, otherwise, street parking, but beware that there is a strict local residents parking scheme in operation around the ground.
