TRANMERE Rovers midfielder Ryan Stratulis has joined Merseyside non-leaguers Marine for a month.

The teenager, who came through Rovers' academy, was involved with the first-team during the 2021 pre-season, featuring in Tranmere’s 1-0 win over Rangers.

The 18-year-old is yet to make a competitive appearance for Rovers, but is still hoping to make an impact for Micky Mellon’s side this season.

Marine manager Neil Young said: “Ryan joins us at a time when our squad is really stretched, and it’s great that we can bring in a player of Ryan’s quality. He is technically very good, hardworking, and has an eye for goal. Ryan has already made his first team debut at Tranmere, and I know they think a lot of him.”

The Crosby-based side currently sit top of the Northern League Division One North West.
