Wednesday 23rd January 1895
Blackpool granted Harry Tyrer a benefit game at Raikes Hall on 23 January 1895. His old side Bolton Wanderers was the opponents and Blackpool won 2-0. He scored one of the goals in front of a disappointing attendance. At the time it was said that his signing, seven [sic] years earlier, was "one of the best strokes of business ever effected by the club".
Saturday 23rd January 1971
Having impressively disposed of star-studded West Ham United 4-0 in the third round Blackpool must have been confident of progressing to the last sixteen stage of the competition. Thousands of Pool fans boosted the enormous attendance at Boothferry Park to 34,752 which saw Peter Suddaby making his debut but the Seasiders gave a hugely disappointing performance as Second Division Hull City went into the hat for the Fifth round draw after winning the tie by two goals to nil.
Friday 23rd January 1976
Blackpool cancelled Glyn James registration due to an ankle injury on 23 January 1976 after he had played 442 League and Cup games, made six substitute appearances and scored 25 goals for the club.
