Bowyer: Depends On Domino Effect

Deadline Day Update From The Manager

31 August 2017

Gary Bowyer says the ‘domino effect’ of transfer deadline day may well dictate whether any further business is done at Blackpool.

The manager, having added 14 players this summer, is content to press ahead with his current squad, unless activity elsewhere leads to certain individuals becoming available.

“With regards to incomings it’s probably a domino effect and if anything like that was to happen, then we might have to react,” he said. “We’re not really pushing at this moment to see if we can take somebody in.

“If the right person became available, with the right quality, then that’s something that we’d certainly be looking for.”

The same goes for potential outgoings, with the manager only open to letting a couple depart for regular game time if there is significant interest, as was the case with Jamille Matt’s loan to Grimsby Town earlier this week.  

“We can’t thank Jamille enough for his efforts and what he did for us last season, which was topped up by the performance of him at Doncaster, when he pulled his hamstring and stayed on the pitch. That showed his commitment to the team,” Bowyer said.

“He wanted to play - he’s not had minutes this season - and I felt that it was right that he goes and does that. He goes with our blessing to go and play football and we wish him all the best for the weekend.”
