Hundreds Of Grassroots Players Attend Win Over Southend

9 February 2020

Hundreds of youth team players from grassroots clubs and leagues across the Fylde coast attended Saturday's win over Southend United, to kick off the Club's Backing Grassroots initiative.

The campaign, which was launched last week, was introduced as a way for the Club to re-connect with the junior football clubs across the Fylde coast, providing the chance for younger fans to engage and support Blackpool FC.

The scheme was brilliantly supported by teams on Saturday, with many also attending Tuesday night's match at home to Gillingham. 

Martin Booker, Blackpool FC's Business Development Manager said: "It was great to see so many teams in attendance yesterday. We’ve had some really positive feedback from the clubs and parents and many teams are coming on Tuesday night too.

"For many it was the first time they had been to a Blackpool game and it added to the atmosphere. It’s a great start to our #BackingGrassroots campaign and we thank all the clubs for their support."
