Heneghan Returns

Defender Back At Bloomfield Road

23 August 2019

Blackpool Football Club can confirm the return of defender Ben Heneghan on loan from Sheffield United until 14 January 2020.

The centre-back made 49 appearances in all competitions for the Seasiders last season and was part of a defence that kept 18 clean sheets.

Shortlisted for the club’s Players’ Player of the Year award in May, the 25-year-old made a big impression with his no-nonsense style of defending and overall commitment to the cause.

Ben Heneghan said:

“I’m happy to be back here and I want to be more successful than last season. I just want to get back to playing football and being involved with the group. There’s been quite a good few changes here and I’m looking forward to embracing them.”

Manager Simon Grayson added:

“Ben knows the club, some of the players and some of the staff, so settling in won’t be a problem. He is a whole-hearted defender who can handle the ball well and someone who will certainly increase the level of competition within the squad. I’m sure the supporters will be glad to see him back, and I’d like to thank the people above for making the deal happen.”
