Tranmere Rovers have today appointed former Port Vale gaffer Micky Adams to the post of manager.

The 52 year old has a managerial career that spans 18 years and ten clubs, beginning with Fulham back in 1996.

His successes include four promotions, including taking Leicester City to the Premier League back in 2003, and he has got teams out of our current division twice previously and was twice voted the Third Division Manager of the Season.

He has only just recently left Port Vale saying that he felt his shelf life at that club was up and that he’d taken them as far as he could, and speaking to the Official Site chairman Mark Palios said of the appointment.

‘In the position the club currently finds itself, we felt it was important to appoint an experienced manager with good connections and a track record of success in League Two. In our present position, we don’t have the luxury of time to allow a new manager to learn his trade.’

Obviously a reference to Edwards who he was very complimentary about when he departed, but unfortunately a sign of the times and our results, and we needed to hit the ground running from day one and we still haven’t really on a consistent basis and hopefully that’s something Adams can soon sort.

Matt Gill and Alex Russell will continue to prepare the team for the game on Saturday against Oxford and Adams will take a watching brief and commence his duties following that game.
