New assistant through the Dawes of Prenton Park

Ian Dawes has been appointed assistant manager of Tranmere.

Dawes links up once again with boss Mike Jackson, having been on his coaching staff at Shrewsbury.

“I received a phone call from the manager asking if I would like to come in as number two, and I am absolutely delighted to be working for such a historic football club. It is an honour,” Dawes told Rovers’ website.

“I know the manager well from our time together at Shrewsbury Town, and we work very well as a team.”

Jackson added: “It is good to get him in and you need good staff around you to support you with the work that you are doing.

“He is a good coach and he has a similar opinion on how the game should be played as I do. It is a good fit, he is good at helping develop players and that is what we want to do.”
