Manager On Hull Loanee
Neil McDonald says his first impressions of new loan signing Will Aimson were good, despite Blackpool falling to defeat at Wigan Athletic.
The Hull City centre half played the full 90 minutes a day after joining The Seasiders on loan, and his new manager was pleased with his impact.
“On first impressions I was really pleased,” he explained. “Afterwards the lad was down because we conceded four and had been beaten.
“He showed that he can handle the occasion. He was good in the air and showed a little bit of composure on the ball and that’s why we brought him here.”
Aimson will now be competing with Tom Aldred for a place at the heart of Blackpool’s defence, with the former Accrington Stanley man returning from suspension this weekend.
“Tom’s been very good at the back. He’s knows what to do and is an experienced defender.
“He’ll be looking forward to coming back and playing in front of his home fans, just like the rest of the team,” he added.
