Seasiders To Remain In UK

Blackpool manager José Riga has opted to keep The Seasiders in the UK next week, in order to spend more time on player recruitment.

The decision means that a planned trip to Spain, which included two fixtures, will no longer take place.

"The manager has taken the decision - and I agree with the decision - to cancel the pre-season tour so that our time is better served to try and get some of the player deals that we've been trying to get over the line for some time across the line. Our time will be far better spent preparing here than going over to Spain," Chairman Karl Oyston explained.

"I've spoken with the chairman of the supporters' association, as I do with most things, about the decision because certain people no doubt booked to go across and follow the two games. We'll look to fairly deal with that issue."

Supporters who have booked flights based on watching the two fixtures and now no longer plan to travel are asked to contact mark.ridgway@blackpoolfc.co.uk
