When Tranmere Rovers signed Ben Tollitt on loan from Portsmouth in 2016 it was unlikely they knew the hidden gem they had uncovered and the star they could mould into one of their top stars.
While The Super Whites missed out on promotion in 2016 due to a handful of injuries the knee trauma suffered by the winger could possibly be the most significant.

A staggered return in 2017 saw Tollitt leave the pitch once again due to a separate knee issue but the forward was presented with the chance to redefine himself for another three months.
The 23-year-old once again took to the pitch to a standing ovation against Ebbsfleet United in February 2018 and showed a glimpse of the quality Rovers have missed out on.
As they build towards promotion and possibly a league title with less than 20 games remaining, Tollitt is expected to play a massive part – and could cement himself in Tranmere folklore for years to come.
