Caretaker Parkes leaves Blackpool


Recommended Posts

Blackpool caretaker manager Tony Parkes has left the Championship club.

BBC Radio Lancashire understands he left Bloomfield Road following unsuccessful discussions with chairman Karl Oyston over finances.

The former serial Blackburn caretaker saved Blackpool from relegation after taking over in December, following Simon Grayson's departure to Leeds.

The Tangerines are now interviewing for a new manager, with coach Steve Thompson thought to be a candidate.

Former Seasiders midfielder Gary Brabin, now Cambridge boss, Bury's Alan Knill, former Oldham manager Andy Ritchie and ex-Leicester boss Ian Holloway have also been linked to the job.

Unless we make a offer the chairman can't refuse but I'd say this is the end of this move. Any manager coming in won't want to sell until he has had a chance to assess the squad unless he is familier with a certain player and doesn't rate him.
