Little: A Fresh Start

18 November 2015

Striker Relishing Opportunity With Seasiders

Andy Little is looking forward to a 'fresh start' at Blackpool and can't wait to get back out on the pitch.

The striker, who completed a loan move to the club yesterday, is relishing a return to regular action after waiting patiently on the sidelines this season. 

"It's a big year for me, it hasn't started so well but this is a fresh start," he told the official website. "Hopefully I can get my season back on track and also help the club and team get back on track as well."

The 26-year-old arrived at Preston North End last summer looking to transfer his scintillating form for Rangers in Scotland, where he scored 34 goals in 48 appearances. Unfortunately it hasn't worked out that way just yet.  

"I've played the majority of my career in Scotland and I feel like I haven't really done myself justice since I've been down here. I feel like I haven't shown what I can do yet. I want to show people what I'm capable of."

Impressed with his first training session at Blackpool, Little is aiming to rediscover his sharpness and make an impression at Bloomfield Road.

"There was a really, really good tempo and I haven't been training at that tempo enough lately because obviously I haven't been involved. It's been good for me to get back to those tough sessions again, and I know as the games come and the weeks go on I'll get stronger and stronger. 

"I'd like to think I'm a hardworking player, I get round the pitch and have had seasons where I've been able to put the ball in the back of the net. That's what I'll be aiming to do."
