Tranmere will be sponsored with £100,000 of taxpayers' money for another year by Wirral Council.

Details of the deal were previously kept secret on the grounds of "commercial confidentiality".

However, council leader Jeff Green said it was important that residents that see where their taxes are being spent, describing it as a key priority of his Conservative-Liberal Democrat administration.
