Embattled Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston has confirmed the signings of all the eggs and fireworks thrown by supporters following last night’s 1-1 draw at home to Reading.

The dairy foodstuff and pyrotechnic devices, hurled, were personally gathered up by Oyston and rushed to a hastily arranged press conference were they were unveiled as registered first-team players.

With relegation from the Championship now confirmed, the Tangerines supremo moved quickly to bolster Lee Clark’s squad ahead of what is sure to be a rigorous League 1 campaign next season.

Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Karl Oyston thanked the Bloomfield Road faithful for all their eggs and fireworks and declared himself excited to see them in action.

He said: “I personally cannot wait to see an egg and a firework linking up with Jamie O’Hara in midfield.

“If you’ll pardon the dual puns, I think I’ve cracked it and as such the fans should let me off.

“Did you get those?”
