Respects Paid To Ian Britton

4 April 2016

Former Blackpool Players Lay Wreath

Bloomfield Road paid its respects to Ian Britton prior to the game against Southend United on Saturday.

The stadium broke out in a period of applause to mark the sad passing of the 61-year-old, as a wreath was carried around to the North Stand by a host of former players, including ex team-mates Brian Butler and Dave Windridge.

Britton made more than 100 league appearances as a midfielder for Blackpool and achieved promotion from Division Four under Sam Ellis in 1985.

His funeral will take place next Monday (11 April) in Burnley.
