Two Former Players Pass Away

Club Saddened By Losses of Barrie Martin and Bobby Doyle

28 February 2019

The club is sad to report that two former players have passed away in recent days.

Barrie Martin, who spent seven years at Bloomfield Road in the late 50s and early 60s, making just shy of 200 league appearances in club colours, passed away at the age of 83 yesterday (Wednesday).  

Bobby Doyle, who joined Blackpool from Peterborough United and made 49 appearances, passed on Tuesday.  

Our condolences go out to both of their families.
