Blackpool’s players spread some festive cheer yesterday at the Young Seasiders Christmas party.

Around 200 youngsters were invited to Bloomfield Road for a disco and a signing session with the first team squad. The likes of Tony McMahon, Jamie O’Hara and Peter Clarke spent more than an hour with the children posing for pictures and signing autographs.

Pool’s Head of Retail Richard Wild, who helped organise the event, was delighted.

“It’s a great part of Blackpool FC’s calendar,” he said.

“The event was fantastic and it was great to see so many children meeting the players.

“The afternoon was a huge success.”
