Yates Pens New Contract
Blackpool Football Club is delighted to announce Jerry Yates has signed a new three-year contract.
The 24-year-old’s new deal, which includes an option for a further 12 months, will see the striker remain with the Seasiders until at least June 2024.
Yates enjoyed an incredible debut season at Bloomfield Road, scoring 23 goals in all competitions to help the Club secure promotion back to the Sky Bet Championship for the first time since 2015.
His individual contribution to Blackpool’s success was rewarded even further, with the frontman awarded the Player’s Player of the Season and PFA Player of the Season awards.
On signing his new contract with the Club, Jerry Yates said:
“I’m delighted to be extending my stay here and really looking forward to the future.
“Last season was the highlight of my career so far. To gain promotion at Wembley, particularly given the tough start we had, was a fantastic achievement by everyone at the Club.
“For the owner and gaffer to show so much faith in me and offer me a new deal is a nice feeling. I’ll work to repay that faith on the pitch over the course of next season and beyond. I can’t wait for what’s to come.”
