Winger Apologises To Club and Fans

Jacob Murphy would like to issue the following statement, in response to an image that has circulated on social media this afternoon.
 
"I’d like to offer my sincerest apologies to the manager, my team-mates, the fans and everybody at Blackpool Football Club for the hurt and embarrassment that a recent photo message I sent has caused. It was totally unprofessional of me and a foolish thing to do.
 
I have loved my time at Blackpool so far, and I’ve been really grateful for the support I’ve received. I know I have let the manager and fans down badly, but I aim to repay them by working even harder and helping the team climb up the league table.

I’d also like to make clear that Donervon Daniels had no part in this and I apologise for implicating him."

Blackpool manager Lee Clark added:

"I'm extremely disappointed because I expect nothing but total professionalism from my players. We will now investigate this matter internally before deciding upon an outcome."
