Striker Reveals More About Himself

Currently on loan from Leicester City, striker Jacob Blyth has started in Blackpool's last four fixtures and scored his first goal for the club against Southend United.

Here the 23-year-old reveals a bit more about himself:

If you were putting the music on in the dressing room, what three songs would be on your pre-match playlist to get you up for the match?

I love my deep house music. Tom Zanetti – Darlin’, Riton - Rinse and Repeat, and a bit of Darius Syrossian.  

What is your favourite piece of football memorabilia that you own?

I got an award from the FA for being the only person to score a hat-trick in the FA Youth Cup and FA Cup in the same season. I’m in the history books for it.   

Favourite away stadium that you like playing at?

Hull’s KC Stadium.      

Who is the biggest name in your phonebook?

Jamie Vardy.  

What can you remember about your first job?

I was packing boxes at RS Components, it was straight from school working part-time for four hours a day.

To date, what is your most embarrassing moment in football?

Probably my first ever induction song when I signed for Leicester. I sang Pure Imagination off Willy Wonka and absolutely crumbled because I was so nervous.  

What is the best sporting event that you’ve watched live?

The Ashes at Edgbaston.  

What were your first pair of football boots?

Total 90s. 

What TV series are you addicted to watching?

Peaky Blinders. 

Including yourself, what four players in world football would be in your five-a-side team?

I’d be in a side with Sergio Ramos, Emre Can, Cristiano Ronaldo and Graziano Pelle. The best looking footballers in the world.
