Blackpool FC; Loan Striker Disappointed with First Start for the Season Explain Reasons.

Olly Casey, a defender for Blackpool, says he enjoys preventing goals and risking his life for Neil Critchley’s team.

The 23-year-old has had a productive start to the season, making nine appearances for the Seasiders in League One. He spent last season on loan with Forest Green.

After Matthew Pennington injured himself during the season’s first match at Bloomfield Road against Burton Albion, he was given the chance to start.

In response to a question on his performances thus far, Casey said: “I’m pleased to get in and maybe I can keep the shirt. It’s what I’ve been pursuing for a long time.

We still have a ton of games left, so I need to keep developing and getting better. I’m incredibly delighted; I couldn’t have wished for a better start.


We have a great bunch of guys; we all want to work hard for one another, which is definitely helpful.

“Any defender on this squad can play together incredibly well; we all understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and everyone has been reliable thus far.

“My time with Forest Green on loan was really beneficial to me. They were near the bottom of the table, so there was a lot of defending and labour involved.


“The things I took away from that experience have lasted with me, and they have helped me prepare for this season.


“For me, scoring is stopping a goal and throwing yourself at the ball.


As a defender, you must take pleasure in the fundamentals.
