The sign has been removed ahead of this weekend's homecoming match against Southend United, where thousands of fans are set to return after boycotting the ground under the now removed Oyston regime.

The removal of the Oyston sign is seen as a symbolic moment for Blackpool fans who continue to celebrate the removal of their despised former owner.

Ryan Jackson said: "Best thing I’ve seen all day!"

Steven Peterson added: "What is it with Blackpool FC and Mondays? Sod Carlsberg!"

"This makes it a very happy Monday," Andy Higgins remarked.

Volunteers continue to clean up the stadium today to get the ground spic and span ahead of the weekend's clash, which is expected to be a sellout.
