27 January 2018

Gary Bowyer says it was important that today's tributes to Jimmy Armfield went ahead as planned, despite the match against Charlton Athletic being called off.

On the say-so of the Armfield family, the club made an swift decision to continue with the pre-match plans to honour Jimmy.

The Blackpool and Charlton Athletic first-team squads, plus coaching staff, also headed outside to join supporters at Jimmy's statue.
