Blackpool Winger Aims To Relegate Imps
Louis Almond has a point to prove against the Imps after David Holdsworth froze him out during his loan spell at the Imps. Louis made his début for The Tangerines as a second year scholar at Crewe in the League Cup and has enjoyed loan spells at Cheltenham, Barrow (3), Lincoln and now Hyde FC.

The talented left winger, just 21, certainly has a point to prove after scoring 1 and delivering 2 assists in successive games for the Imps. But after just 5 bit-part appearances he was recalled by Blackpool, moving back to Barrow on loan for the rest of the season. The Tangerines clearly rate the lad, offering Louis a new improved contract with an option for a further year.
This season has seen him farmed out to Barrow until January, making 14 appearances (2 goals). Louis then joined Hyde, for a half-season youth loan in January, as part of his continuing development. In 12 appearances he has scored four and been credited with 3 assists, although his all-round contribution has been electric, providing top quality service for Jevons (15 goals) and Blinkhorn.
The left flank could yet play a big part in our season with Danny Loyd also set to start for the Lambs against Woking. As for Louis, did he get the opportunity his promise deserved at the struggling Imps? He will certainly have the motivation and ability to be a danger on Saturday, against a City side notoriously short on pace. Over to you Dan Gray and Tom Miller (the away player of the season!)
