Blackpool Town Council have voted unanimously to award the Blackpool Medal – awarded to those who make a key contribution to the town on a local or national level – to Ian Holloway and his Blackpool squad following the club’s promotion to the Premier League.

Council leader Peter Callow said:

‘There can be no worthier recipients than the team who gave this town a Premiership football team.’

The medals will be presented to the team at a pre-season friendly this summer.
