On April 8 2017, Tranmere Rovers played Solihull Moors at home in a league game which saw the biggest victory the National League has seen. 

The game played at Prenton Park saw two Rovers players, Cole Stockton and Conner Jennings, bag hat tricks on the day.

The game was a harsh lesson for the visitors, who had only won promotion to the National League the previous season. Tranmere finished as runners-up that season, with Solihull Moors finishing just five points above the drop zone.

Rovers needed the win at home to keep up with fellow promotion seekers Lincoln.

On the back of five wins in a row, the club were in great form coming into the game. 

Cole Stockton headed home James Norwood’s corner in the 20th minute to put the side ahead. 5 minutes later he would score again with a right footed finish from just outside the box. 

The striker had a chance to get his hattrick earlier in the first half however, Moors keeper, Danny Lewis saved his penalty kick. 

He did eventually get his hattrick with a minute of the first half remaining when his finished a cross from Liam Ridenhalgh at the back post. 

The club founded in 1884, playing their home games in neighbouring Birkenhead, have never played top-flight division football in the English pyramid. 

Conner Jennings would get in on the action in the second half with a driven shot into the bottom corner. The 48th minute goal to make it 4-0 would be followed in quick succession by his second, a headed attempt from Jeff Hughes’ corner. 

Andy Cook would then head home another on the 68 minute mark with the game dead and buried at 6-0. 

Solihull’s fears were only worsened as five minutes from full time, Ridehalgh whipped in a glorious free kick attempt to seemingly top off an incredible performance at home. 

The defeat for the Rovers put them only three points above the drop zone, a nightmare result in their quest to stay in the national league. 

Tranmere were relentless right until the last , Jennings would again find the top corner of the Moors goal with an outside of the boot effort, completing his hattrick. 

Stoppage time would see also, debutant, Aaron Collins fire home that last goal of the game, finishing a staggering 9-0, the biggest win in national league history.
