Pericard Lands Trial at 'Pool

Frenchman Vincent Pericard has joined The Seasiders on trial.

The striker, who was released by Premiership side Stoke City in the summer, has recently had a spell at Bristol City but didn't do enough to earn a contract at Ashton Gate.

And so he moves on to Blackpool where he plays for the reserves tonight against Tranmere Rovers.

Ian Holloway is desperate for a big target man to compete with, or fill in for the often-injured, Ben Burgess.

The 26-year-old certainly fits the bill at 6'1'.

However, the Cameroon-born forward isn't a natural goalscorer. His last goal came back in 2007 for The Potters - he also failed to score in two loan spells at Southampton and Millwall.

Pericard's best season came in 2002-03 where he helped Portsmouth win promotion to the Premiership whilst on loan there from Juventus - hitting nine goals.

Blackpool reserves to face Rovers:

1. Matt Gilks
2. Ben Breakall
3. Jake Rooney
4. Al Bangura
5. Biko Younda
6. Joe Martin
7. Thomas Barkhuizen
8. Billy Clarke
9. Louis Almond
10. Brian Gilmour
11. Joseph MacDonald

Subs:

12. Adam Foster
13. Chris Kettings
14. Josh Roberts
15. Liam Tomsett
16. Adam Mitter
