Tranmere Rovers: Ian Muir & Ray Mathias Mural
This large scale street art mural captures Tranmere Rovers legends Ian Muir & Ray Mathias in their hey day.
The Tranmere Rovers Supporter's Trust have a mission to improve the match day experience and generate a bit of excitement and community amongst the fan. This mural is a big part of that mission.
Few players have had the same impact at Tranmere Rovers as Ray Mathias. Having played for the Whites for a period spanning 21 years, in which he took to the field 637 times, Mathias remains the club’s all-time record appearance holder.
To a generation of Tranmere Rovers fans, Ian Muir is remembered as a legendary player, who played the starring role in the greatest period of the club's history and also the finest centre forward not to have played in the top tier of English football. He holds the club goal scoring record of 142 goals in 314 appearances.
It was a massive honour for me to paint this mural and I'm Really happy with the way it has turned out. The club and the fans have treated me exceptionally and I want to thank them for the amazing support and positivity I have received from them. It was also fantastic to get to meet Ian and Ray.
“I’m absolutely delighted with it. It’s absolutely monumental to see your face on a wall—there is nobody prouder than myself, I think it is massive for the area. The mural is a great tribute to us.”
- Ray Mathias (Ex-Tranmere Rovers player and manager)
