Holloway pays tribute to Ormerod

23 February 2011 04:00
Blackpool boss Ian Holloway hailed Brett Ormerod after the veteran striker made history with his goal in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over Tottenham. Ormerod became the first Seasiders player to score in all four divisions when he slotted home his side's third in their impressive triumph at Bloomfield Road. The 34-year-old has played a limited role since securing Blackpool's promotion to the Barclays Premier League last season with the winner against Cardiff in the Championship play-off final at Wembley. Holloway lavished praise on Ormerod on Tuesday, though, before admitting the player had certainly staked a claim for more first-team action. "I'm delighted for Brett Ormerod," Holloway said. "I'd like to thank Mr and Mrs Ormerod for Brett! I think what he has done for us in this match, what he did for us in May - I'm so proud to have been a part of it. "His dad will probably say 'why aren't you playing him a bit more often?' I might have to if he keeps doing that."
