Pick Up Your Copy Of The Matchday Magazine Tomorrow

A new season means one thing... a new-look Up The Pool, and you can get your hands on the latest edition tomorrow when Blackpool welcome Barnsley for the first home game of the campaign.

The matchday magazine is jam-packed with news and exclusive content that cannot be found anywhere else.

We catch up with Thomas Ince to discuss fatherhood, the disappointment of England Under 21s European Championships and facing up to the realisation that he is now a marked man.

The winger's team mate and captain Barry Ferguson reveals just how close he came to announcing his retirement and recalls his first ever encounter with manager Paul Ince.

Angel Martinez's diary is back, mainly due to popular demand, after the midfielder's entries were a hit while the Club were in Portugal on a pre-season training camp earlier this summer.

New features include Ten Questions, where players are put on the spot with quirky questions about life outside of football, and the YouTube hit Up Against The Clock in which players have to answer as many questions as they can in 90 seconds on a specialist subject of their choice.

Also in tomorrow's edition is a Q&A with one-club man and former defender Mike Davies as well as an extended interview with Trevor Sinclair, who is back on the Fylde Coast for a short spell before heading back to Dubai.

We also take a trip down memory lane for to a specific event in both Blackpool and Barnsley's history; this week we go all the way back to 1959.

The Opposition Dossier makes a debut in the programme as does Six of the Best and One 2 Watch.

Goalkeeper Luke Steele took time out earlier in the week to speak to Up The Pool about last season's survival, while also recalling his Barnsley debut, which was a memorable one - an FA Cup tie at Anfield.

There is much, much more to read on top of the aforementioned so makes sure you pick up the new-look Up The Pool tomorrow for just £3.
