Rovers bring in striker on month's loan
3:52pm Thursday 25th October 2012 in News
TRANMERE Rovers have completed the loan signing of striker Nathan Eccleston from Blackpool today.
The 21-year-old comes to Prenton Park for a month from the Championship club and will be available for Saturday’s home game against Preston North End.
Eccleston came through Liverpool’s Academy and made appearances for the club in the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League.
He also spent time on loan at Huddersfield Town and Charlton Athletic before joining Blackpool in August.
He has been given permission to play in the FA Cup for Tranmere by Blackpool.
Manager Ronnie Moore said: "I'm really pleased to be able to bring in a player of Nathan’s quality – there were quite a few League 1 clubs interested in signing him.
"He’s quick and strong and can score goals and he’ll be a good addition to our squad.
"With Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Jake Jervis both out injured Nathan will give us a bit more pace in attack.
"I’m grateful to Ian Holloway and Blackpool for letting him come to us."
