Blackpool manager Ian Holloway will put a smile on a few faces at Bloomfield Road next season, according to skipper Rob Edwards.

Holloway, whose previous clubs include Bristol Rovers, QPR, Plymouth and Leicester, replaced Tony Parkes on the north-west coast at the end of May.

Edwards told the club's official website: "I'm really looking forward to working with him."

He added: "I've not had anything to do with him in terms of working with him before, but when I see him talking on the telly or doing commentary he always sounds quite bubbly and funny. He seems like someone who will be fun to work with.

"Plymouth was one of those places that teams didn't really like going to because they're maybe not as glamorous, which is probably similar to us at the moment.

"He'll probably bring a lot of the things that he did there to us and I'm sure that's only going to help us."
