Dear Seasiders – we've got a new owner, Blackpool-born and passionate about the club. The spectre of the old regime is gone for good. It is all about the future now. The League One fixture list will be published on Thursday, the pitch is looking good and this is going to be the most exciting pre-season in nearly a decade. Things are going to happen at our club that we never imagined would be possible.
As of today, season ticket sales were just short of 4,500. In the circumstances (new owner, new sponsors, new possibilities) that feels a bit disappointing, to be honest. If you are planning to buy a season ticket, you should no longer have any reservations about doing so – get on the phone, get down to Bloomfield Road. Let's show faith in Blackpool FC, Simon Sadler and the new board. We wanted our club back. This is a call from BST for everyone to come back on board and be part of the best trip as it gets under way again.
