Appleton named Blackpool boss

Published Add your comment

Blackpool have named Michael Appleton as their new manager after reaching an agreement for his release from Portsmouth.

Appleton moves to Bloomfield Road as successor to Ian Holloway, who ended a highly-successful three-and-a-half year stint with the Seasiders to join npower Championship counterparts Crystal Palace at the weekend.

The 36-year-old former Manchester United youngster had his playing career cut short by a serious knee injury but has impressed in his first managerial role, earning plaudits in difficult circumstances at Portsmouth despite overseeing the financial stricken club's relegation to League One last season.
