Blackpool Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Ethan Robson on a two-year-deal, with the Club holding an option for a further year.
The 23-year-old signs for the Club from Sunderland, having joined the Black Cats as a rising academy star in 2004.
Since then, the midfielder has progressed well and enjoyed successful loan spells at Dundee FC and Grimsby Town, as well as making a handful of first-team appearances in the Championship for his parent Club.
A midfielder with a keen eye for goal, Robson becomes Neil Critchley’s sixth signing of the summer as the Club continues to press ahead with their plans for the 20/21 season.
On signing for Blackpool, Robson said:
“I’m delighted to be joining Blackpool Football Club and I can’t wait to get started.
“It wasn’t an easy decision to leave Sunderland, which is where I’ve grown up and developed over the years. But, after speaking to Neil Critchley and hearing what he had to say about the team and where he wants to take it, I felt it was a journey I wanted to be a part of.
“Blackpool is on the up, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future brings here.”
Neil Critchley said:
“I’m excited to welcome Ethan to Blackpool, and I am really looking forward to working with him.
“He’s a highly rated, athletic midfielder who I have been aware of for a number of years and watched him develop at Sunderland.
“I believe he will be a valuable asset to the team, and he fits the profile well of the type of player we want to bring to the Club.”
