First Signing Completed
Thursday, 7th May 2015 13:26 by Editor
On the day that Manchester United complete their first deal of the summer spending £25-30 Million on Depay, it seems strange that we were once in the same league. Blackpool have announced their first deal and we've plunged in to the Evo Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division for our first deal. The price tag not quite in the millions - a pre-season game against his former club Blyth Spartans!
It would be glib and remiss to diss any new player coming in to Bloomfield Road after the dross that we've had in the last couple of years and so let's see what Jarrett Rivers can do in a Blackpool shirt. He is only 21 years old and was the Northern Premier League Young Player of the Year. He's scored 12 goals in 51 appearances and scored the stunner below against Hartlepool in the FA Cup.
The winger will join Blackpool on July 1st with Lee Clark quoted on the official site as saying ""I've had personal success in the past taking players from non league, having signed Lee Novak while at Huddersfield and Matt Green at Birmingham City. Jarrett's got a good football upbringing from his days as a youngster at Middlesbrough and he's an exciting player who makes and scores goals. He's been one of the outstanding players in a successful season for Blyth Spartans, starring in their FA Cup run and play-off push. His efforts this season have seen him rewarded with a Young Player of the Year award and a call-up to the England C team."

Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
