Danns Ready For New Chapter With Blackpool

3 February 2017

Midfielder Looking Forward To Latest Loan Spell

Neil Danns has been happy to relive past memories following his return to Bloomfield Road on loan this week. 

The midfielder, who completed a short-term switch from Bury on deadline day, last played for the club 14 years ago and scored a couple of memorable goals. 

"It's like walking down memory lane, obviously it was a long time since I was last here but everything's still fresh and I'm glad to be back," he said. 

"It was probably the first loan I ever went out on, I scored a few goals here and really enjoyed my time here as a young kid with the whole of my career ahead of me. It gave me the foundations to build that on."

Now back with a wealth of experience at all levels, the 34-year-old still holds the same drive to be successful and is determined to do what he can to help the club push up the table. 

"I like to get in the box and I like to obviously drive forward as much as I can. It's probably not as much as I used to but I'm looking forward to adding a few goals to the team," he admitted. 

"I'm 34 now but I still love the game as much as I did when I was here last time. I can't wait to get out there and just play, and that's the main reason I've come here. I've still got 18 months left at Bury and I probably could have sat there, but I want to play as many games as I can and enjoy my career as long as I can. This is a great opportunity for me." 

The midfielder's second debut for the club could well come against another of his former sides, with Colchester United the visitors to Bloomfield Road this weekend. 

"I had great times at Colchester United and it's got a really big place in my heart. Getting promoted there was really good but when it comes to Saturday, like every player knows, once you cross that line you have to leave that all behind. I'll be trying to get the three points and help the team if I'm involved," he added.
