Chairman Karl Oyston
Stadium Bloomfield Road
Time at Club:
Blackpool appointed Gary Bowyer as their new manager in June 2016, on a one-year rolling contract at Bloomfield Road. The former Blackburn Rovers boss replaced Neil Mcdonald and in the process became the club's eighth boss in four years.
Blackpool won promotion to the Premier League in 2010 but despite a bright opening half of the season they were unable to hold onto their top flight status. The most famous moment in their history was of course the 1953 FA Cup Final aka the 'Matthews Final' when star player Stanley Matthews led his side to a 4-3 win against Bolton in one of the greatest Finals the competition has ever seen.
The Seasiders have been in freefall of late, suffering back-to-back relegations from the Championship down to League Two, a rotten slump which Bowyer will desperately be looking to change.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Blackpool collect wins versus Portsmouth, Yeovil Town and Cheltenham Town while suffering adverse results at Colchester United, Plymouth Argyle and Crystal Palace. Draws against Crewe Alexandra, Carlisle United, Wycombe Wanderers and Barnet has seen them show mid-table form at best.
