Mask Distributors at Blackpool FC's Bloomfield Road Ground, Seaside Way, Blackpool
Rightly or wrongly, following a 'bit of a row' in Bournemouth FC's Tunnel,
Blackpool's Manager - Paul Ince - was given a Stadium Ban for five games.
This means he can't enter the Stadium, at which Blackpool are playing for the duration of the ban.
As a jokey sort of a protest the Blackpool Fans - together with the local Blackpool Gazette newspaper
and Radio Wave - organised the printing of 10,000 Paul Ince masks.
These were available free outside the ground, but with most people giving a charity donation
to the Trinity and Brian House Charity and the Variety Children's Charity.
There was a mixed reception to these masks with some supporters anti the idea ... but in my opinion it was all a bit of fun and was an opportunity for people to make a donation to two worthwhile charities.
I wonder how many of those against the masks actually made a donation? Methinks ... not many.
