Boney Focused On Development

Young Goalkeeper Aims To Keep Improving

Myles Boney is determined to make inroads at Blackpool by continuing to work hard on the training work. 

The goalkeeper, 18. is one of five former youth team players now contracted to the club looking to make an impression as a professional.

Having been on the club's books for two years, Boney is relishing the challenge of bettering himself under the guidance of the coaches at Bloomfield Road.     

"The new coaching staff have made me feel very welcome and the new players that have come in have been great," he told the official website.

"I've had quite a few different coaches and I've taken bits from every single one of them. Dave (Timmins) has now come in and he's tweaking me to be what I can be, and the best I can be.

"I've got a lot to learn and I think Dave is the right person to teach me. From the coaching staff to the players, everyone will help me to develop."

Always open to picking up tips, the youngster has received plenty of advice from the senior goalkeepers in his time with Blackpool.

"Every one of them teaches me different things and talks to me about training. If they see something I can improve on, they tell me."

Boney joined Luke Higham in making his debut for the club last season, and he admits the presence of his ex-youth team-mates on the training ground has been extremely beneficial.    

"During training it makes you feel a lot more comfortable because you're not going into a first-team where you've not trained or played with anyone. It's been good to have them around," he added.
