As The Gazette reported last week, the winger was due to sign for the club after impressing on trial during the summer.

The Alvechurch youngster trained with the Seasiders during pre-season and performed well in Blackpool's 2-1 friendly win at Nantwich Town, setting up Mark Cullen's opener.

The pacey forward, who was born in Spain, impressed for Alvechurch last season, helping them win promotion from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division One South.

The 23-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the Seasiders with the option of a further 12 months.

He has already been loaned out to National League North side Boston, and even played in their 2-0 win at Stockport County yesterday.

He came off the bench and played a role in Boston’s second goal courtesy of Nathan Arnold.
