Double loan swoop for Seasiders

Double loan swoop for Seasiders

Grayson has signed West Ham United youngster Kyel Reid on loan until January. Joining him at Bloomfield Road will be Derby striker Liam Dickinson. The 23-year-old former Stockport frontman will add further fire power to Pool who have failed to score in the last two games.

Reid has enjoyed successful loan spells with Championship rivals Crystal Palace and Barnsley. Reid can play at either left back or left midfield and should provide good cover for Pool who have struggled in that area because of a catalogue of injuries.

Dickinson is an exciting young striker who first hit the headlines with Stockport, guiding them to promotion to League One last year. Dickinson scored 21 goals that season and he was soon snapped up by Derby for £750,000. The striker has already had a successful loan period with Huddersfield this year scoring six goals in 13 appearances.

Both players should be involved on Saturday when Blackpool travel to play Plymouth.

With Dicko you have a possible gem. Derby have knocked his confidence. Look after him, give him your support and within a couple of games I am sure he will start knocking them in for you. Who knows, you may get him permanently signed up? Wish we (County) still had him...... good luck Liam.

What did I tell you ? What did I tell you ? Give this lad 100% backing from the stands and he will repay you!

Liam! Liam Dickinson!
