When Arsenal struck a deal with Blackpool for the loan transfer of youngster Daniel Ballard, some of the club's fans were against the idea and spoke of their disappointment at the club's decision to let him leave. However, the move comes at a time when the player was not getting the opportunity to play football and that seemed like the only available option back then.
The 21-year-old has been impressing since signing for Blackpool and his development took a huge step further after he scored his very first EFL goal for Blackpool on Tuesday. He was the star of the show as he helped his temporary club score a 1-1 draw against fellow League One club Crewe Alexandra. Ballard was the scorer of the first goal of the match after making a couple of fine efforts and runs while terrorizing the Crewe defenders.
