Young defender Ben Davies has joined Tranmere Rovers on a month’s long youth loan.

Rovers boss ex-PNE defender Rob Edwards swooped for the youngster after a serious injury to yet another ex-PNE man, Matt Hill, who unfortunately ruptured his Achilles a few days ago.

Davies will stay at Prenton Park until October 22, with a chance for regular game time, after David Buchanan moved ahead of him in the pecking order in recent games.

He will be available to make his debut for the Wirral outfit in Saturday’s clash with Exeter at home, where he could come up against another former team-mate in Graham Cummins, who scored for the Grecians in midweek.
