Striker Becomes A Seasider

Ricardo Fuller has put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal at Blackpool, with an option for a further year. 

The 33-year-old striker, who spent last season with Charlton Athletic, becomes Paul Ince's seventh signing of the summer. 

"As a striker, we live and die by scoring goals or not scoring goals. Hopefully, I'll continue to do my best and score goals, create goals and make something happen for the team," he told the official website.

Capped 73 times by Jamaica, Fuller spent the longest part of his career with Stoke City but has also had stints with Preston North End, Portsmouth and Southampton. 

No stranger to playing against his new boss, The Seasiders' number 19 is looking forward to learning from him at Bloomfield Road. 

"I played against him towards the back end of his career and he was always a player that wanted to do well, no matter how old or young he is. He's been at top clubs and any player in my shoes, or any shoes, would want to play for a manager like that."

Fuller is currently looking to build-up his match sharpness as he looks to make a quick impact in tangerine, with The Seasiders' shirt colour one he fully approves of.   

"My first club in Jamaica, Tivoli Gardens, wore a very similar colour - orange and black - so it's bright and I like it. I'm looking forward to putting on the shirt and doing the best I can. 

"I'm looking forward to playing as soon as I'm fit enough, or as soon as the manager sees me as ready enough to do my part," he added.
