Having been introduced to supporters at the BSA Annual Meet The Players Quiz on Monday night, Alan Mahon was at Squires Gate bright and early on Tuesday morning to complete the paperwork on his loan until the end of the season.

The Irish midfielder, who has been capped on two occasions for his country, admitted that he is "looking forward to the prospect of playing football, and helping Blackpool"

The former Wigan and Tranmere man also said it was an easy decision to make, "I just to want to play football, I know a couple of the lads and the manager, so it wasn't a hard decision. "
