Kemp: Loving Every Minute Of It

9 September 2020

Daniel Kemp is loving life at Blackpool in the early days since he’s joined, and is looking forward to what the season holds.

The winger played the full 90 minutes in Tuesday night’s EFL Trophy draw with Barrow before stepping up to take the decisive penalty to give Blackpool the bonus point in Group G.

And the 21-year-old, who only signed for the Seasiders last week on a season long loan deal from West Ham United, admits he was confident stepping forward to take the penalty.

“I’m always confident in them situations,” he said.

“I feel I can produce when it’s needed. Thankfully, I was able to bury the final penalty to give us the bonus point, as I feel we deserved the win in normal time, given the amount of chances we created.

Reflecting on his time at the Seasiders to date, Kemp admits he is loving it in the north-west.

“Everyone has made me feel so welcome and I’m loving every minute of it,” he said.

“The Head Coach, the backroom staff and all of the players have been great to be around. It’s a real family-like team we have here, and I’m grateful to be working with all of them.

“I think we can have a successful season here, so long as we focus on what we know we can do right. We have a good team here, and competition for places is high, which can only be a good thing. I’m looking forward to playing my part and seeing where we can go.”
