Saturday 28th January 1956

Blackpool played a friendly game against Hull City on 28th January 1956 and the game was drawn 5-5. Blackpool’s goals came from Jackie Mudie, four, and Bill Perry while Kenny Booth, in his initial game in the first team, “showed promise as a tricky inside-forward”. Stan Mortensen, who scored two of Hull’s goals, was “the brains of Hull’s attack”.

Saturday 28th January 1995

Blackpool thrashed Plymouth Argyle 5-2 after being 2-0 down at half-time and being booed from the field. Goals from Andy Watson (2) , Mickey Mellon (2) and Tony Ellis meant it was the first time that Blackpool had scored five goals in a half since August 1981 when Halifax were beaten 7-1. After the game, skipper Andy Morrison said “I was absolutely delighted it all came good in such convincing fashion.”
