JAY Spearing has played at the high­est level of the game – and Black­pool boss Gary Bowyer is con­vinced that ex­pe­ri­ence will make him an in­stant suc­cess at Bloom­field Road.

Spearing left Bolton – where he made 173 ap­pear­ances in a four-year spell – af­ter win­ning pro­mo­tion last sea­son but has now joined the Tan­ger­ines as a free agent.

The 28-year-old de­fen­sive mid­fielder be­gan his ca­reer with Liver­pool, even play­ing in the Cham­pi­ons League for the Reds, and pre­vi­ously worked un­der Bowyer in a loan spell at Black­burn.

He has been train­ing with Black­pool and Bowyer was ex­cited to fi­nally seal the deal.

“It’s no se­cret that Jay has been train­ing with us for a few weeks now and I’m de­lighted that we’ve been able to get a deal done,” said Bowyer.

“He’s some­one I know well from my days at Black­burn and he will be a great ad­di­tion for us.

“He’s played in the Premier League, Cham­pi­onship and had suc­cess in this di­vi­sion with Bolton Wan­der­ers last sea­son.

“That ex­pe­ri­ence and qual­ity will prove in­valu­able.”
