Blackpool FC Player Profiles

Posted 16th July 2012 at 10:07 pm

A versatile player, Chris Basham arrived at the club in the summer of 2010 on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Bolton.

The 25-year-old enjoyed loan spells at Stafford Rangers and Rochdale before breaking into the first team at Bolton, scoring his first goal against Chelsea in April 2009.

Comfortable in defence and midfield, Basham provides much needed depth in both departments. After a nightmare start at Bloomfield Road following a leg break, Basham has steadily built up his appearances in tangerine and had his best season to date last term.
