Have your say

AFTER all those years Blackpool have travelled to Latvia for pre-season tours, it was about time the roles were reversed – and they have been.

A Seasiders XI will play host to FK Jelgava at Bloomfield Road on Thursday, July 28, kick-off 7pm. Pool played Jelgava during a trip to Latvia last September, losing 2-1.

Ian Holloway is set to name a young side – the Seasiders play Hibernian on the Tuesday and travel to Sheffield United 48 hours later.
