Time at Club:
Blackpool are managed by Simon Grayson who replaced Terry McPhillips in July 2019.
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 came to an end after Bowyer led the club back up to League One.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Blackpool collect wins versus Fylde, Fleetwood Town & Bradford City while suffering adverse results at Dundee, Gillingham, Barnsley & Peterborough United. Draws against Scunthorpe United, Luton Town & Plymouth Argyle has seen them show mid-table form at best.
