Published Add your comment

Tranmere have handed youth scholar Dale Jennings a professional contract until June 2012.

The striker made his first team-debut against Charlton this season and has made five more appearances since, scoring the winning goal at Bristol Rovers.

The 17-year old joined Tranmere's Centre of Excellence two years ago and boss Les Parry said: "Dale has progressed well this season and doesn't look out of place in our first team."

He added: "He's only young but he has shown glimpses of his potential so far and if he continues to work hard then I'm sure he has a bright future ahead of him."

Jennings added: "It is a great day for me, all apprentices dream of the day they sign their first professional contract.

"I'm really pleased the club has given me this opportunity and hopefully I can repay them on the pitch."
