THERE may be a few more youngsters in the crowd than normal against Brighton.

Ten tickets have been allocated to each team in the Blackpool and District Youth Football League. They will be given to players selected by each team manager to reward excellence, endeavour and sportsmanship.

Pool secretary Matt Williams said: “We’re always looking at ways that we can forge links with the local community and we thought this was a great opportunity to do just that.

“With this initiative we’re making sure a new generation of Blackpool fans can get to watch the team in action and add to a fantastic atmosphere on Saturday.”
