Bobby Grant headed his first goal for the club as Blackpool drew at York City.

The striker, who joined from Rochdale on Thursday, fired an equaliser as the Seasiders had another pre-season run-out.

All but the injured Barry Ferguson and Matt Phillips were in action, along with four trial players.

Neal Bishop, Gary Dicker and Danny Grainger all played again aiming to earn a contract.

They were joined by 24-year-old defender Daan van Dinter who plays for Dutch side FC Den Bosch.

Despite totally dominating the first half, Pool found themselves a goal behind on 55 minutes when Michael Coulson scored from 20 yards.

But minutes later James Caton burst down the left and provided an inch perfect cross for new boy Grant to head home.

Pool face Bury on Tuesday night before ending their pre-season at home to Newcastle the following Sunday.
