HUME RE­NEWS ROVERS AF­FAIR

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By TLP Re­porter

MICKY Adams be­lieves Iain Hume’s love for Tran­mere is what brought the striker back to Pren­ton Park.

Canadian in­ter­na­tional Hume had been out of English foot­ball since leav­ing Pre­ston at the end of last sea­son, the 31-year-old go­ing on to play for Ker­ala Blasters in the In­dian Su­per League.

Hume was voted player of the league af­ter help­ing the Blasters reach the fi­nal, but has since re­joined Tran­mere on a six-month con­tract.

And hav­ing started his pro­fes­sional ca­reer with Rovers – mak­ing his de­but at the age of 16 and go­ing on to score 37 goals in 177 ap­pear­ances over seven sea­sons – manager Adams in­sists the for­ward’s love for the club is the main rea­son he put pen to pa­per.

“I’m de­lighted Iain has agreed to joins us,” said Adams.“He had a num­ber of op­tions with other clubs but his pas­sion for Tran­mere was clear to see when I met him.

“He can score goals, he can open up de­fences and cre­ate chances for oth­ers and he’s a hand­ful for de­fend­ers. He’ll in­crease the com­pe­ti­tion for places up front and add to our at­tack­ing op­tions for the sec­ond half of the sea­son.”

RE­TURN: Iain Hume
