Former Keeper Passes Away

Former Blackpool goalkeeper Harry Thomson has sadly passed away at the age of 72.

Edinburgh born Harry was signed from Burnley in July 1969 and was a very popular and charismatic 'keeper. He was well loved by the Pool faithful who christened him SIR Harry Thomson.
Harry played for the The Seasiders in 60 league games during the promotion winning season of 1969/70 and the 1st Division season of 1970/71.

Blackpool Football Club would like to pass on their condolences to Harry's friends and family.
