Club's All-Time Record Appearance Maker Receiving Radiotherapy Treatment

Gary Bowyer has sent his very best wishes to Jimmy Armfield, who is currently receiving radiotherapy treatment. 

The club's all-time record appearance maker, who featured 627 times for The Seasiders, has been in good spirits and is in touch with the manager regularly. 

"On behalf of the football club we wish Jimmy all the very best. Ever since I've arrived he's been fantastic with me," Bowyer said.

"Even after his first day of treatment he rang to say congratulations because we'd beaten Doncaster, and he was in on the Friday giving me words of wisdom, which are greatly received because he's such a legend around here.

"It won't be long before he's back in my office telling me which team I should pick. We wish him all the best."
