Blackpool's Lewis Walmsley named in EFL Team of the Year

The Team of the Season awards have been announced by the EFL Trust, and Blackpool’s own Lewis Walmsley has been chosen as one of five players to make the list.

It has been a memorable campaign for both Lewis and Blackpool FC, and now their efforts have been rewarded.

Lead Sports Studies Coach, Alex Taylor, said: “its a fantastic achievement for Lewis to be recognised by the EFL and be named in the League 1 North-West team of the year.

“For two consecutive seasons he’s won Coach’s player of the year at Blackpool. His performances have been consistent throughout and his attitude and willingness to learn has been excellent, as well as technically being our best player.

“He’s scored 24 goals this season playing in a variety of different positions. Lewis is a well respected member of the squad with both our first and 2nd years. As he has now completed his BTEC in futsal with us, I have asked him to attend pre season training and assist with training our new recruits for the season ahead.”
