Report: Squires Gate 2 Blackpool XI 7

Youthful Pool Side In Pre-Season Victory

23 July 2019

A youthful Blackpool XI came back from two goals down to record a 7-2 pre-season victory in a pre-season friendly at Squires Gate.

The side, containing six of the under-18s in the line-up, fell behind to efforts from Josh Pollard and Ryan Riley, however replies from Ryley Smith and Yusifu Ceesay brought the Seasiders level at half-time.

With nothing to separate the teams for the opening period of the second-half, Blackpool pushed for the lead and duly got it when Ceesay scored his second of the game, nodding in a cross from Nathan Shaw.

A fantastic volley from Emil Jaaskelainen made it 4-2 minutes later, before striker Ewan Bange added his name to the score-sheet with a simple tap-in.

Bange was then brought down in the final 10 minutes of the match, providing Rowan Roache with an opportunity to make it 6-2 from the penalty spot.

With the final whistle now approaching, Bange scored his second and Blackpool’s seventh in the 90th minute to round off the performance.
