Karl Oyston: Delighted to have Paul Ince as manager

The former Manchester United and England midfielder signed a one-year rolling contract at Bloomfield Road on Monday, and Oyston has high hopes for his reign.

Oyston told the club's official website: "I'm pleased that we've got someone who is very enthusiastic and wants to bring disciplines that I think we're lacking.

"We definitely needed a change of direction in many ways and whilst in my 15 years here I've never really felt it necessary, or for the best interests of the club that I get involved in the football side of things in anything other than an overview way.

"I think it was getting to the stage where I was going to be forced to get involved in the football side of the business because we lacked direction. I think I used the word rudderless which was quite appropriate."

Ince fills the role left vacant by Michael Appleton's departure to Blackburn, with the Seasiders 14th in the npower Championship and 10 points off the play-off places.
