David Norris has switched clubs for the second time this summer by joining Blackpool on a short term contract until the end of the season. Norris, 34, had previously linked up with Paul Sturrock at Yeovil Town but was released last week, sparking a move to the Seasiders.
The Stamford born central midfielder spent 6 years at Home Park playing for Plymouth Argyle, some of which were playing under Sturrock. He found first team football hard to come by last season. The recent overhaul at Leeds United meant that his place was under jeopardy from the first whistle. He left Yorkshire in January of this year and signed a short term deal at Peterborough United to move closer to his family. Regaining fitness was a he positive for the experienced midfielder but was still unable to force his way into new manger Dave Robertson’s plans.
On completing the deal with the Seasiders he told the clubs official website. “I’ve worked with the manager before at Bolton so I know him and he knows me. I’m delighted to be here and I’ve got a chance now to get myself into the team,”
