Blackpool FC Player Profiles

Posted 8th January 2016 at 08:21 pm

Danny Philliskirk is a key member of the Blackpool squad and can be used anywhere across the front line. 

Signed from Oldham Athletic for an undisclosed fee in January 2016, Philliskirk bagged five times for Pool last season.

The versatile attacker started his career with his hometown club before moving to Chelsea as a teenager. Stints at Sheffield United and Coventry City followed, prior to returning to Boundary Park in 2013. 

He has since made 124 appearances for The Latics, including 28 this season, and departed having scored a total of 25 goals for the club.

Philliskirk made his Blackpool debut against Port Vale just two days after joining the club. His first goal followed a week later in a 5-0 win over Scunthorpe United.
