Football Specials

The Trust's contribution in this year's Illuminations was finally unveiled on Friday evening with removal of the cladding over side windows and panels. Attended by representatives of Blackpool Supporters Trust including two former BFC Players, an informal 'launch' quickly revealed images of BFC teams, players and some memorable events in the Team's history. They included the ecstatic parade along the promenade with the Team on board 'Princess Alice'.

Other images taken over fifty years ago include scenes on Lytham Road with

'Football Specials' arriving in time for the crowds leaving the Bloomfield Road ground after the final whistle.

Blackpool Illuminations sent their own team to the tram display just in time to fit

lighting features which were switched on as the first illuminated tram tour arrived at the Pleasure Beach stop. Additional spot lights will be fitted in due course.

The Trust's support from a diversity of organisations and Fylde coast companies, and Blackpool Council are recognised on the display.
