Ben Tollitt is eager to put his Tranmere Rovers injury woes behind him and prove himself after joining Blackpool on a two year deal.
Winger Tollitt, 24, has joined the Seasiders on a free transfer from Tranmere Rovers.
The midfielder has penned a two year deal which includes an option for an extension until 2022.
Tollitt joined Rovers in 2016 from Portsmouth but after three years he has opted to link-up with his former Everton youth coach and current Blackpool boss Terry McPhillips.
Two serious injuries blighted a period of his time at Prenton Park and after just 34 league appearances for Micky Mellon's side he is eager to prove himself at a new club.
The 24-year-old arrives at Blackpool raring to go having ended the season on-loan at National League side Wrexham and scoring four goals in 13 games to help them finish in the play-offs.
And having impressed for the Welsh side he has left now League One Rovers for a fresh start at third tier rivals Blackpool.
Tollitt said: “I back myself and I’ll do everything to prove to people that I am ready for it. I have had injuries, but now is the time to really prove myself. I’ve had a year of doing well and it’s time to repay the manager.
“Obviously he knows me from when I was a kid at Everton and he coached me a few times back there. I’m happy that he wants me to sign here.”
And Mchillips is keen to help him reach his full potential.
He said: “Ben is quick, tall and has bags of potential. He’s been unlucky with a few injuries and previously had a host of clubs scouting him. We feel he’s got plenty of development left and will look to help him reach the level we know he’s capable of reaching.”
