Appleton returns to Blackpool

Blackpool have announced the appointment of Michael Appleton as head coach on a contract until June 2026.

The 46-year-old returns to Bloomfield Road on the back of a three-year stint in charge at Lincoln City, where he played a key role, both on-and-off the pitch, in building and developing a young and talented squad.

Coming within 90 minutes of guiding Lincoln back to the second tier of English football for the first time in 60 years in 2021, Appleton managed just shy of 150 games with the Imps.

Prior to that, he held prominent coaching roles in the Premier League at Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion and achieved managerial success by leading Oxford United to a Sky Bet League One promotion, as well as consecutive EFL Trophy finals.
