Earnshaw Joins Blackpool

21 March 2014

Striker Drafted In

Blackpool have today completed the signing of Robert Earnshaw, who joins on a free transfer for the remainder of the season.

Earnshaw, 32, recently left Toronto FC in Canada, and will now be available for The Seasiders, who become his sixth British club.

The striker has played for the likes of Cardiff City, West Brom and Nottingham Forest during his career, and has made 58 caps for Wales.

Earnshaw will be unavailable for tomorrow's game with Huddersfield Town due to international clearance, so will be set to make his debut at Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday.

Having trained with The Seasiders for the last two days, Earnshaw is now raring to go in a tangerine shirt.

He said: "This is a great opportunity for me to play some games and give the fans something to cheer about before the end of the season.

"Mentally I feel really fresh because I've been dying to go, so signing here is going to be exciting. 

"I'm hoping I can come here and give the fans some goals and somersaults, give them what I've given to every other team."
