It's the next-best-thing to BST TV. The latest VLOG from Seasider Lee in conversation with Christine Seddon over coffee at Rowleys:
The latest BST Gazette column for 22/03/19 is up on the Trust website now:
Season tickets for the rest of this season are being posted out and should be with everyone who has ordered one by Monday.
You will either receive a season ticket card or 4 individual tickets for the remaining games.
Thank you for your patience.
Blackpool Supporters’ Trust is pleased to announce that its application to have Bloomfield Road re-registered as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) for a further five-year period has been formally approved by Blackpool Council. The new listing runs until end of February 2024.
The fact that the stadium has ACV status (also known as ‘community right to bid’) means that BST gets notified by the Council if ever there is an application to use the asset for other than its current purpose as a football ground.
The Trust would have a statutory right to table its objection to any such plan and a timeframe in which to register its own formal interest in the asset which has been the home of Blackpool FC for over a century.
Owen Oyston did lodge an application to appeal against the appointment of the receiver at Blackpool FC. That appeal has been denied. No further recourse is available – another step towards resolution of the Oystons’ tenure at out football club.

Tickets for the North stand are now available for the rest of the season.
Please get to Bloomfield Rd tomorrow night and show that Blackpool fans really are back!!
Firstly, a massive thank you to everyone who attended the game today. It was a truly happy and emotional occasion and to be part of that crowd for our homecoming is something that we will remember for ever.
The noise, the excitement, the sheer joy and enthusiasm - Blackpool are back in a big way and the future for OUR club is looking bright.
It is now vital that Blackpool fans do everything possible to support the interim Board and Receiver to begin rebuilding our club and prove to the EFL that we can fulfil our fixtures and pay our way.
The next home game is on Tuesday night, so please get you tickets booked, get the revenue flowing into the club and let's get the place rocking again.
Whilst the fans who ran on the pitch today were clearly overcome with emotion and excitement on this special day, it is absolutely vital that this does not happen again. We cannot afford to give the football authorities any more reasons to deduct points, nor can we run the risk of the club being fined, when we are trying to find ways to bring revenue IN.
The eyes of the world have been upon us this week and the admiration for Blackpool fans and what we have achieved is truly heart warming. We have campaigned for years to get our club back and now we have succeeded, we need to show that we can look after it.
See you on Tuesday - UTMP!
Just a reminder that the Celebratory Walk starts at the Comedy Carpet opposite the Tower meeting up from 12.30pm/1pm onwards. As the club want fans in the ground by 2.45pm (as the wreath laying is happening at 2.50pm) we wat to set off very promptly at 1.30pm.
The media interest is unlike anything we've ever had and there are so many requests for interviews with fans so please turn up in your numbers and be prepared to be interviewed!
Let's make this the most joyous, fantastic, loud and proud gathering and let's go HOME!
