Blackpool name a bunch of trialists

It might only be a few weeks until the start of the season, but Championship side Blackpool find themselves in the precarious position of only having 8 players signed up for their first team squad.

Despite assurances from Chairman Karl Oyston that the Tangerines will be competitive this coming season, their first pre-season game against Penrith descended into farce, when the club posted a team-sheet with five players under the name of 'Trialist'.

For the record, "Blackpool" won the game 4-0.
