The 2012–13 season was the 112th season of competitive association football and the 86th season in the Football League played by Tranmere Rovers Football Club, a professional football club based in Birkenhead, Wirral. During the season, Tranmere Rovers competed in Football League One under Ronnie Moore in his first full season in charge.

Season summary[edit]

Tranmere enjoyed a fine start to the season, standing top of League One at the end of January. Injuries to key players including Andy Robinson, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and captain James Wallace sparked a dramatic downturn in form. Tranmere fell to sixth by the end of March and finished the season 11th with no goals scored in their final six games.
