Can Tranmere Rovers Futsal avoid Relegation from the Super League?

By Joel Lampkin

It has been a season of extreme difficulty for the newly promoted side with the threat of relegation constantly in the news – but can The Super Whites avoid the drop?

Manager Damon Shaw was very open about this season’s aims with the young squad around him needing time to develop but safety and success has taken a backwards step due to his philosophy. 

However, a restructuring of the club’s finances has resulted in the former Middlesborough coach made redundant with the future of the club

With just two wins under their belt in 15 fixtures, victory has been hard to come by but the style of play has been a joy to watch- overshadowing the results at times.

The future of the club may be in doubt but their aim of survival remains the same, but how likely is it that Rovers could remain a part of the Super League next season?

Tranmere have just six games left to save their season with Shaw remaining as the manager in a voluntary position, highlighting his passion and work ethic as a coach.


With two games against teams in the top four (Reading Escolla & Birmingham) as well as crucial clashes against mid table York City, Manchester and Oxford it is still feasible for Rovers to end up safe with games to spare.

Shaw’s side narrrowly lost out to leaders Reading by one goal back in November although they were humbled by Birmingam 9-2 just two weeks later.

They must face York and Oxford City Lions twice each with wins crucial in all fixtures to stand a hope of cementing themselves as a powerhouse and a future attraction of futsal

Close opponents Loughborough sit one place above Rovers in the league and have shown the second worst form in the league in their past six fixtures winning just one game, however they are set to face London Genesis futsal who have conceded 102 goals this season.
