21 January 2016

Striker Hangs Up His Boots

Brett Ormerod has today announced his retirement from playing at the age of 39.

A legend in every sense of the word at Blackpool, he scored 78 goals in two spells at Bloomfield Road and achieved two promotions.

He holds the distinction of being the only player to have scored in all four divisions for the club, following his strike in the top-flight against Tottenham Hotspur in February 2011.

Ormerod, who also had permanent stints with Accrington Stanley, Southampton, Preston North End and Wrexham during his career, had most recently been playing his football with Bamber Bridge.
