Fans have been further angered by the remove of the stature to legendary FA Cup hero Stan Mortensen ahead of the planned protests ahead of the final game of the season on Saturday.

The protest day – known as ‘Judgement Day’ by the Blackpool Supporters Trust and the Tangerine Knights groups, in reaction to the Oyston’s, back in August, saying that they should be judged by their actions at the end of the season – was due to see fans lay memorabilia at the site of the stature to mark the 62nd anniversary of his hat-trick in our FA Cup win.

Such planned actions weren’t wanted by the club with Tangerine Knights spokesperson Stephen Smith reacting, quite rightly, angrily to the removal of the stature when talking to the media, with such a move being made at the call of the club.

‘I think the removal of the statue is too coincidental with the timing of the planned protest at the weekend.

‘The removal of it is utterly disgraceful. Karl Oyston knew that we had plans to lay memorabilia at the foot of the statue given that it was the 62nd anniversary of Mortensen’s hat-trick at Wembley.’

Protests are something that chairman Ken Oyston continues to say don’t ‘affect him’ and he’ll not ‘change the way he works’ but these ongoing protests will keep going, and are growing with more and more backing and support, with the ultimate aim to remove him from power….

If this doesn’t happen they’ll continue!

‘Karl’s said it doesn’t affect him, I think it’s very clear now that the protests are getting to him.

‘Our ultimate aim therefore is to remove him from power from the club and we’ll continue to protest until that happens.’
