Tranmere Rovers goalkeeping coach and former goalkeeper is set to retire due to a long standing knee injury.

Nixon, a club legend, has had the knee injury for a number of years now and this has limited his time on the training ground coaching Rovers upcoming goalkeepers and he has finally decided to hang up his training jacket and gloves.

This, if you ask me, leaves the door open for John Achterberg to become Rovers goalkeeping coach in the next few years.

Tranmere Rovers Mad wish Eric all the best for the future, espessially in his Elvis Impersinations.
