Nyron Nosworthy confirms Blackpool exit

Published Add your comment

Blackpool have allowed their centre half Nyron Nosworthy to leave on loan until the end of the season with Portsmouth being the destination. 

Nosworthy has not been with the Seasiders that long as he was recruited by current manager Lee Clark in November to help stop the rot for the Tangerines but this has not been the case.

The defender was originally signed until January but managed to secure a contract until the end of the season but with injuries and growing competition he has fallen out of favour with Lee Clark. He has managed only five appearances for rock bottom Blackpool.

Loan move

The 34-year-old, who has 13 Jamaican caps to his name, is keen to get some first-team football under his belt as he move towards the end of his playing career. At 34, he will be hoping that these opportunities come at Fratton Park in the coming weeks.

After signing, Nosworthy told the club website: "I spoke to the manager and he made me feel very welcome and confident.

"I'm looking forward to finishing the season strongly and playing in front of 15,000 fans every other week."

Manager Andy Awford is delighted that he has managed to acquire a player of Nosworthy's experience as his side push for an unlikely play off place.

Manager's delight

He told the same report: "Nyron has a wealth of experience and will give us a presence that we miss with Paul Robinson and Jack Whatmough both out injured." 

With two players injured Nyron will be hopeful that he will appear in this weekends clash against Wimbledon away at Kingsmeadow. However, Nosworthy may face competition as Portsmouth also get their hands on QPR teenager Cole Kpekawa in a similar deal to Nosworthy's.
