News - Tranmere Rovers withdraw plans for Ingleborough Memorial Fields

The football club has withdrawn its application to build almost 100 homes on the Ingleborough Road playing fields.  The fields are a memorial to pupils of Birkenhead Institute who died in WW1, including Wilfred Owen.

The plans sparked objections from many residents and Dean Johnson, founder of the Wilfred Owen Story, launched a high profile campaign to save the memorial field.
