Burgess 'Pleased' to Pen New Deal

Ben Burgess yesterday signed a new contract for The Seasiders, and is said to be be 'pleased' with the situation.

His new deal will keep him at Bloomfield Road until the end of next season at least - but is likely to see him ply his trade for 12 months on top of that, as the club have installed a one year option.

And it's good news all round, with both Burgess and assistant manager Steve Thompson were happy with the agreement.

Thompson, who might be out of a job in the summer, said 'It is a massive bonus for us. We have looked to sign a big man since he got injured and they cost massive money.

'There are not many about like Ben and for him to sign a new deal with the club is massive news. He is looking fit and the news is a boost for us, Ben and, I am sure, the supporters.'


He is right when he says it was a boost for Ben; the big man stated that he is 'pleased to have got it sorted, I wanted to stay.' and even managed to joke about the south stand: 'I want to stay and see if they ever build that other stand!'

There is serious competition for places up front for Tony Parkes' men now, with the signing of Lee Hughes. He, Burgess, DJ Campbell, Brett Ormerod and Nick Blackman are all vying for two spots - the type of competition for places 'Pool haven't had for months.
