League One side Blackpool have appointed full-back David Ferguson as team captain after just six starts for the Seasiders.

Goalkeeper Colin Doyle, 30, a summer signing from Birmingham, has been made the club captain for the new season.

Ferguson, 21, was signed from Sunderland in January but could not prevent Blackpool being relegated from the Championship.

They lost 7-2 at Watford in January on his debut for the club.

Meanwhile, Blackpool have installed Fred Barber as their new goalkeeping coach after Bobby Mimms joined Bolton.
