Son of former Blackpool and England winger Trevor Sinclair follows in his father's footsteps by signing pro terms with the Seasiders
Trevor Sinclair’s son Sky has followed in his father’s footsteps by signing a professional contract with Blackpool.
Sky, who plays at right-back, has been a regular for Blackpool’s youth-team this season and even started the club’s recent behind-closed-doors friendly win against Huddersfield Town, a game which featured a number of first-team players.
The 18-year-old’s first professional contract hasn’t been officially announced by the club yet, but his father Trevor - who began his career at Bloomfield Road - took to social media to speak of his pride.
‘Tricky Trev’, who earned 12 caps for England, wrote on Twitter: “Bursting with pride that our son Sky has earned a pro contract at Blackpool.
“Huge thanks to all his coaches throughout his journey, the club and his amazing mum.
“Go again son.”
Sky, a second-year scholar, has yet to make his bow for the first-team.
But he becomes the latest in a batch of youngsters to pen pro terms, following the likes of Luke Mariette, Rob Apter, Brad Holmes and Ewan Bange.
Trevor, who is based in Lytham, began his career with Blackpool in 1989, going on to make over 100 appearances for the Seasiders before leaving to join QPR in 1993
The former winger also played for West Ham, Man City and Cardiff City before ending his career with brief stints with Lancaster City and Squires Gate.
Trevor’s eldest son Isaac is also aiming to make it in football.
He’s currently signed to National League North side Curzon Ashton but has previously played for Squires Gate, AFC Blackpool and Longridge Town.
Trevor's youngest son Kobe is also about to begin a scholarship with Blackpool.
