Striker Looking Forward To Pulling On Tangerine Shirt

Blackpool fans will only be too aware of new signing Steve Davies having seen the striker fire in a few goals against The Seasiders in seasons gone by.

Despite having personal success against his new club in the past, the 25-year-old is keen to start scoring goals in a tangerine shirt and is looking forward to the future.

"I'm very excited," Davies told Blackpool's Official YouTube Channel. 

"Obviously it's a great club and over the past couple of years its been fighting at the right end of The Championship. 

"Especially coming from last year and being at Bristol and having a bad season, once I new Blackpool were interested I was keen to come down and talk to them."

The striker may have been part of a side that got relegated last season, but he still managed to find the net 13 times, which prompted interest from other clubs up and down the land.

"Bristol made me aware that there was a couple of clubs interested including a couple down south, but once I knew there was a club up north who were interested it was always my aim to come here so I could move my family back home so it was an ideal fit.

"To be fair I have actually done alright against Blackpool! I think I scored two at Derby against them and it's a club I've faced on many occasions and obviously I've come here and I know how good the fans are so it will be nice to come here when the fans are on my side."

Davies started out as a trainee at Tranmere and ever since leaving the Merseyside area has been a player that has been on Blackpool's radar. 

"When I left Tranmere I went to Derby and Blackpool were interested then and then half way through last year there was talk of the club trying to get me in and thankfully this summer it has come off.

"I've done my pre-season at Bristol and I've had all my game time down there so it will be nice, if the gaffer chooses me on Sunday, to have a run out and actually meet all the fans and we'll we get right down to all the hard work next Saturday," added Davies.
