New signing Harry Pritchard says he’s prepared to work hard to make the most of his league opportunity with Blackpool.
The winger, who steps up two divisions after a strong season at Maidenhead United in the Vanarama National League, follows a number of other players in the last 12 months to be given a platform to shine at Bloomfield Road.
“A few players play in non-league and get the move to Blackpool and it shows that the manager trusts players, is loyal to players, and will play them if they work hard. That’s what I’ve got to do,” the 25-year-old told the official website.
“Last season was definitely my best at Maidenhead and I’m ready for the step up. I’m looking forward to training hard, working hard in pre-season and hopefully starting the season well.”
Pritchard, who scooped numerous club accolades at Maidenhead, found the net on 16 occasions last season and will now look to transfer that form to Sky Bet League One.
“That’s my aim as a left midfielder, I obviously want to be on the score-sheet and assisting as much as I can. I’m happy to do that, and hopefully I can bring those goals and assists to Blackpool.
“I’ve always wanted to play in the Football League and being down south this is a big move up north, but I’m ready to take that commitment and I’m just looking forward to getting started,” he added.
