Blackpool gets ready for Premier League assault

Despite defeat to West Ham in the playoff final at Wembley Blackpool will continue with plans to build a new training facility according to an interview with chairman Karl Oyston on BBC Radio Lancashire:

"Finance is not a limiting factor for me in anything I do here now. It is very much top of our list of priorities.

"I think we'll get it done as quickly as we can. It would be another fantastic achievement for us."

Original plans have been in place to develop Squires Gate for three years.

Oyston added: "There's nothing else that's more important to the football side of the business than getting a new home for the team.

"We don't want it as an excuse, something that hampers us or limits what the manager and the coaches can do in producing players that can take us forward."

Boss Ian Holloway said of the existing training ground as a "horrible environment to work in".
