Broadfoot happy with fitness

Blackpool defender Kirk Broadfoot is glad to finally be over his

injury woes, and is eyeing an extended run in the team.

The 28-year-old former Rangers man has established himself as a

mainstay at the heart of the Seasiders’ defence following some

frustrating times in recent seasons north of the boarder.

“It’s been a bit stop-start over the last couple of years with

injuries to be honest,” said Broadfoot on Pool’s official


“I’ve picked up a couple of serious injuries and couldn’t really

get over them. I then had some niggling injuries, while being in

and out of the team.

“I always said if I get a run of games I’d get my fitness back

and I feel as if I have got that back now. Hopefully I can stay

injury free now and keep playing.”
