Seasiders plan to reward players

01 July 2010 12:49
Chairman Karl Oyston has revealed the players who helped Blackpool reach the Premier League will be offered improved terms ahead of their first season in the top-flight. Several members of the Seasiders' Championship play-off final winning side did not have clauses written into the contracts to trigger wage rises should they reach the Premier League. However, Oyston is keen to reward the players who overcame Cardiff City in May's Wembley showpiece. "We are meeting with some of the players and we'll make offers to them," he told the Blackpool Gazette. "I think the sort of offer we are putting on the table would, in their minds, constitute a significant thank you from the club for what they've achieved and that they'll gladly embrace those offers. "There were five or six players who didn't have built-in rises. "Obviously we didn't want to discriminate against the ones who didn't have the rises, so we've put a very generous package to them. "It's a reflection of our thanks for what they've achieved, on behalf of the whole club, the town and the supporters."
