Tranmere celebrate cash injection thanks to web

Press Releasein Football

The Prenton Park groundstaff earned a double salute this week for their efforts in making sure Tranmere's FA Cup encounter with Wolves beat the freeze and went online.

Wolves skipper Karl Henry and Rovers chairman Peter Johnson paid tribute to the work of groundsman Andy Quayle and his assistants in keeping the pitch protected from the sharps frosts of recent nights with special covers.

Not only did the best crowd of the season at Prenton Park - 7,476 - see Wolves edge through the third round tie by a single goal from Matt Jarvis, the game was also watched live by a worldwide Internet audience via the FA's official web site.

The Internet streaming of the game earned Rovers around £75,000 - better than the prize-money Wolves collected for securing a fourth round date with Crystal Palace.
