Former Midfielder Passes Away

Blackpool Football Club is saddened to learn of the passing of former midfielder Ian Britton at the age of 61.

Britton, who joined The Seasiders in 1983, spent three years at Bloomfield Road and made more than 100 league appearances in tangerine.

In 1985 he helped the club achieve promotion from the Fourth Division under manager Sam Ellis, before signing for Lancashire rivals Burnley, initially on loan, a year later.

Condolences go out to his family at this sad time.
