Blackpool have made additions to their team ahead of the new campaign.

The club signed Eddie Nolan on a one year deal after he was released by York in January. The League Two outfit signed the player in a bid to bolster their defensive options with the transfer window coming to a close.
The 27-year old player was developed by the academy of Blackburn when current coach Gary Bowyer was a coach there. The coach told the club’s official website that the player would bring versatility to the squad having known him for years.

“I know Eddie from my days at Blackburn and he’ll be a valuable addition to the squad. He offers great versatility at the back and has performed very well in the games he’s played so far.”

On the other hand, the player assured fans as he said he has been training with the club since the beginning of the pre season camp and has gone on to settle in well. He said the training has been great and the manager is focused on developing a good squad ahead of the coming season. He added that he had played against some of the players before and with some good signings coming in, the club would do well. He said he is just focused on playing well and helping the team.

Recently the team was boosted with the news that the injured trio of the squad would be returning to action. Danny Philliskirk and Danny Pugh hit by sickness are set to return and the Seasiders are hoping one of Jack Redshaw or Jamille Matt will be fit to return to the training camp ahead of the season. Mark Cullen, Henry Cameron and Mark Cullen have already returned to the club. The return of the players as the season begins would be a big boost to the side.
