Blackpool midfield ace Charlie Adam is determined to help his club show their mettle in the Premier League next season.
The 24-year-old Scotland international enjoyed a superb first full season with the Seasiders, scoring 19 goals as Ian Holloway's side clinched promotion to the top-flight via the play-offs.
Adam told the Blackpool Gazette: "This is probably the best league in the world and for us to be going there is great.
"Every fixture will be a dream for us because at the start of last season none of us expected to be in the Premier League.
"But we're not in it just to make the numbers up. We want to show that everyone in our dressing room is capable of playing at the top level.
"We've got to be prepared mentally and physically because it is going to be tough. We will be up against some of the best players around, but we are looking forward to it."
Meanwhile, Pool have handed a trial to 21-year-old Monaco midfielder Malaury Martin.
