Match Review - Penrith vs Blackpool

Blackpool were able to come away with a win in their first pre-season game, securing a 2-0 victory over a lower division Penrith.

Manager Paul Ince decided to use the game not only to get his side back into match practise before the new season starts, but also as tryouts for many trialists. Many new faces were on display in a tangerine shirt in the game, but whether they have impressed Paul Ince enough to sign them we are not yet sure. Four unnamed trialists played in the friendly, two in either half with many new names also being seen on the teamsheet. Ex Hull City striker Caleb Folan, former Pool defender Rob Edwards and Emmitt Delfouneso were all given an opportunity to play.

Ince named two separate sides in both halves, with the first half team including the likes of Kirk Broadfoot, Chris Basham and Nathan Eccleston. The team went out and played considerably well, with Nathan Eccleston wasting a couple of good chances to put the team ahead. There were few chances throughout the rest of the half and both sides went in at the break level at 0-0.

The team named in the second half was arguably a lot stronger than in the first, with star players Matt Phillips and Cardiff target Tom Ince being sent out to play. The tangerines came out eager to find the opening goal and it wasn't too long before they found it, Matt Phillips found the net on 65 minutes after some great play from fellow winger Tom Ince for 1-0. Ince then turned goalscorer as Blackpool added another late on, some neat work from the midfield duo of Noguera and Martinez resulted in Ince curling a fantastic effort on goal into the top corner.
