Playing career[edit]

Power joined the Tranmere Rovers youth set-up at the age of eight and has captained the club at every age group including the first team.[2] A former student at Wirral Grammar School for Boys, after impressing in the Tranmere Rovers Reserve team he was awarded a professional contract in May 2011.[4] Manager Les Parry was confident Power had a bright future in the game, but warned the youngster about his aggression.[5] He compared him to Joss Labadie, another young and talented Rovers midfielder with a reputation as a hothead.[6] Power made his first team debut in the Football League Trophy clash with Port Vale on 30 August 2011; he replaced Andy Robinson on 66 minutes before he went on to score a penalty in the shoot-out victory.[7] He scored his first goal for the club on 13 November, in a 3–0 win against Braintree Town in the FA Cup.[8] He scored his first league goal for the club on 26 December, in a 2–1 win against Crewe Alexandra.[9] On 23 February 2013, he scored his second league goal for the club in a 5–1 win away to Colchester United.[10] On 4 March, he extended his contract, keeping him at the club until June 2015.[11]

At the start of the 2014-2015 season, Power was made vice-captain and has captained the side on numerous occasions this season due to the absence of club captain, Marcus Holness, through injury. He has therefore captained the club at every level.

As of 17th December 2014, Power is the club leading scorer in 2014-2015 with 9 goals and is currently the clubs penalty taker.
