The deal came after a succesful loan spell the season before under Tony Parkes, where he played an important part in keeping the Seasiders in the Championship
New Manager Ian Holloway made Charlie one of his main targets of the summer, but did anyone really know the rise that we would take in this one season alone.

He scored 30 goals for Blackpool in 91 Appearances.
