Sue Smith has called on fans to get behind England as they face Scotland on 21 April.
Tranmere Rovers stars Ryan Taylor and Annabelle Pryce joined England winger, and former Tranmere Rover’s player, Sue Smith today to urge fans to support England when they play Scotland at Prenton Park on Thursday 21 April 2005 (kick off 7.45pm).
Merseyside-based Sue, who now plays for Leeds United, is looking forward to returning to her old club when England take on the ‘auld-enemy’ as part of their preparations for Women's Euro 2005.
The match, which will be shown live of Sky Sports, is a crucial part of England’s run up to Women's Euro 2005, which kicks off in the North West of England on 5 June.
Sue said: "It is fantastic that England are playing at Prenton Park and I’m hoping to get a chance to play in front of a big Prenton Park crowd. I really enjoyed playing for Tranmere and it is great to be coming back here with the England team."
Ryan Taylor, a former England youth player, added: "It is great that the England women’s team is coming to Prenton Park and I hope that Tranmere Rovers’ fans will turn out in force to support them."
Annabelle Pryce, Tranmere Rovers’ ladies, and England U17s player commented: "This is a big year for women’s football and the England women’s team.
"The 2005 UEFA European Women’s Championship is a massive event for the North West and fans will get a chance to see a sneak preview of what’s to come when England play Scotland at Prenton Park. I hope that football fans from across the Wirral and Merseyside come along and cheer the team to victory."
This international fixture is a fantastic opportunity for fans of the women’s game to see the top flight in action and I’m sure we will see supporters from all of the clubs in the Wirral and Merseyside getting behind their country next month."
