Premiership Scoop For 'Pool

Premiership Scoop For 'Pool

Blackpool manager Simon Grayson has today given Liverpool winger, Paul Barratt a chance to move to Bloomfield Road.

The youngster is on work experience at The Seasiders and played for the reserves today.

The 19-year-old is in the last year of his contract at Anfield and is said to be eager to succeed along the seaside.

His work experience will last until the end of the current season and is with a view to a permanent move in the summer.

Paul Barratt
Date of Birth: 15/09/1987
Position : Midfield
Born : Warrington
Year: 3rd Year


Left sided midfielder Paul Barratt has been given an extra year by the Academy to prove himself after some impressive performances during the FA Youth Cup success in 2006. The Academy staff feel Barratt is making good progress and deserves the chance to try and show he's worthy of making the step up to Melwood. Barratt started out at Manchester City before moving to the Academy in the summer of 2004. In the 2004/2005 season he was a regular member of a very young reserve team under the command of Hughie McAuley. He didn't get as many chances in 2005/2006 but will be hoping to return to reserve team action in the 2006/2007 season. Barratt is the only third year based at the Academy.
