Community Trust Running Two 2010 Promotion-Related Competitions

Prizes For Best Match Report and Charlie Adam Free-Kick

27 May 2020

Over the next two weeks Blackpool FC Community Trust will be running two competitions simultaneously to acknowledge the 10th anniversary of Blackpool's 2010 promotion to the Premier League.

1: Junior Reporter

Budding young sports journalists are invited to enter the Trust's Junior Reporter competition. The winning entry will have their Wembley match report published on the BFC Community Trust Website and in a BFC match day programme.

They will also have the opportunity to interview Blackpool Head Coach Neil Critchley during the 2020/21 season. 

To enter, simply watch the magnificent 2009/10 Wembley Play-off final victory over Cardiff City, which resulted in Blackpool's promotion to the Premier League. 

Use the template below to report on the day’s events using your own words to describe the atmosphere and excitement of the day. Simply submit your report, plus a snappy headline, to with Junior Reporter as the subject.

2: Charlie Adam ‘Top Bin Challenge’

The Trust would like you to recreate the famous Charlie Adam Wembley ‘top bin’ free-kick, scored in the same victory at Wembley. 

To enter, you simply need you to film your effort using your right or left foot, post it and tag in @BFC_Ctrust on Twitter or @BFCCT on Facebook and share it with your family, friends or football team. The best goal (and celebration) will win a pair of Charlie Adam’s boots, kindly donated by the man himself, while 3 runners up will receive a brand-new football each.  Don’t forget to use #ShowUsYourAdam for a valid entry.

Both competitions will run until 5pm on Friday 5 June 2020.
