Paul Ince set to link up with son at Blackpool
Thursday 14 February 2013
Blackpool were thought to be closing in on the appointment of Paul Ince as manager.
The club are seeking to fill the vacancy created by Michael Appleton's departure to Blackburn last month. Steve Thompson is currently in caretaker charge at Bloomfield Road, but the club want to bring in a new manager as soon as possible.
They have been linked with a series of candidates but Ince, the former Macclesfield, MK Dons, Blackburn and Notts County manager, is the favourite. If Ince takes charge it will see him working with his son Tom, the Blackpool winger.
