Richie Kyle's side finally set to play

Richie Kyle has been frustrated at the lack of game time for the youth team in recent weeks.
 
Blackpool’s youngsters went two weeks without a game after their 5-0 thrashing of Fleetwood Town, with the most recent disappointment coming when bad weather forced the postponement of their home game against Morecambe.
 
Looking back over the recent weeks, Kyle, Head of Coaching, said: “All the lads have been frustrated at not being able to play a game, and they’ve been chomping at the bit just to get back to action.”
 
The good news for Kyle, however, was the inclusion of Mark Waddington and Harrison McGahey in the first team’s trip to Ipswich.
 
The pair have been training with Barry Ferguson’s side and Kyle sees more involvement for the pair in the future.
 
“Barry said that, from what he’s seen from Mark and Harrison, they both deserved to travel to Ipswich,” Kyle said.

“Barry has got a good interest in our young players and he’s willing to get them involved if possible.”
 
And looking at the game against Burnley this weekend, Kyle added: “I’m surprised at how Burnley have fallen away recently.
 
“I thought they’re a good side and I like the style with which they play.”
