Tranmere at Wembley (Again!)

Post by shotsboy66 » Fri Feb 19, 2021 12:36 am

I see that Tranmere Rovers have made it Wembley yet again. This time in the Papa John`s trophy final v Sunderland. I`m amazed by the amount of times that they have reached Wembley.

League Cup Final/Play off/ Auto Windscreen/Johnstone Paint- I wouldn`t be surprised if they have had at least TEN trips to the old twin towers as I still call it.

If anybody knows the actual number of times they`ve been there- please let me know!

Thanks chalkie. That`s an impressive list- I`m sure Tranmere also played Newport as well poss a Div 2 play off final. What with the Sunderland fixture at Wembley- yeah not far off my estimate of 10 appearances there!

Many thanks for taking the time to reply. Appreciate it
