'Pool To Be Awarded Civic Medal
Blackpool Town Council have voted unanimously to award the Blackpool Medal - awarded to those who make a key contribution to the town on a local or national level - to Ian Holloway and his Blackpool squad following the club's promotion to the Premier League.
Council leader Peter Callow said:
'There can be no worthier recipients than the team who gave this town a Premiership football team.'
The medals will be presented to the team at a pre-season friendly this summer.
