Blackpool Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Kenny Dougall on a two-year contract.
A two-time promotion winner, the 27-year-old joins the Seasiders after spending the last two seasons with Barnsley, where he featured 43 times and helped the Tykes reach the Championship in 2019.
Prior to that, he spent four years in the Netherlands with Telstar and Sparta Rotterdam, making more than 80 appearances for the latter, achieving elevation to the Eredivisie in the process.
Born in Brisbane, Dougall started his career with Brisbane City and has also represented Australia at under-23 level.
On joining Blackpool, Kenny Dougall said:
“I spoke to the gaffer and his philosophy about the way he wants to play football is really attractive and something I wanted to be a part of. The ambition of the Club speaks for itself - they’re bringing in new faces and want to have a go this year. It’s something that attracted me so I’m really happy I’m here now.”
Neil Critchley added:
“Kenny is a player we have been tracking throughout the summer, who brings a good amount of experience to the squad.
“He spent a number of years in the top-flight of Dutch football, before moving to Barnsley and helping them gain promotion from League One.
“His positional play and ability to connect the team together from midfield will be valuable assets to the team. We worked hard to identify a player of Kenny’s personality and quality, and we are delighted he has decided to join us.”
