With all due respect to Michael Higdon, and Tranmere, the fact he’s ended up playing in non-league following his release by Sheffield United last month says a fair amount about him doesn’t it and why Nigel Adkins let him leave!

That being said in fairness there’s not too much between non-league football and League 1 or League 2 really is there and with him a scouser this move to Prenton Park probably works for him geographically as much as anything doesn’t it?

After signing him Tranmere boss Gary Brabin told the club’s website.

‘I’m delighted that we are able to bring such an experienced and talented player as Michael into the squad. He is a local lad who fits the bill of what we’ve been looking for. He has been playing at League One level this season and will offer us a different dimension to the excellent attacking options we already have at our disposal.’

Nigel Clough brought Higdon, who was loaned out to Oldham this season, to United from Dutch side NEC Nijmegen last season but the 32-year-old struggled for regular football at Bramall Lane for a variety of reasons scoring five-goals in 20 appearances.

Atkins used him just three times this season before it was mutually agreed to cancel his contract ahead of the January transfer window closing, which allowed him the striker make this move to Tranmere where he’ll spend the remainder of the season, good luck to him all the same.
