Vassell: Consistency The Key

16 June 2016

New Man Aims To Impress

Kyle Vassell hopes his move to Blackpool is a career defining moment, as he looks to reach his true potential.

The ex-Peterborough United forward has had a stop-start time in league football so far and knows a consistent run of games will bring out the best in his ability.

"I think that's what I've lacked in the last couple of years. Hopefully the gaffer and I can get on well and I can do that here. As a striker it's about regularly scoring goals and putting in consistent performances," he told the official website.

"The club has gone down and I've had a bit of a lull in my career, a bit of a plateau, so hopefully I can bounce back and get to where I want to be and the club can as well."

Peterborough United moved to swiftly to sign him for an undisclosed fee from Bishop's Stortford back in 2013 and given their track record for identifying talent outside of the league pyramid, Vassell aims to prove why he was recruited in the first place.  

"Some get the move from Peterborough and go on, others have to do it the harder way," he admitted. "I'm looking forward to being here and scoring goals."

The 23-year-old spent his final season at the ABAX Stadium out on loan and feels his spell with Shrewsbury Town at the latter end of the campaign stands him in good stead. 

"The one at Shrewsbury was the best I had. I didn't get the record I needed of goals but I played consistent football and I played well, which I think has contributed to me being here," he added.
