Blackpool vs Bolton: Played for Both - Hayden White

The ex-Wanderer is now a Posh lad

This time out, our "played for both" player in focus is Hayden White, who made just the 5 appearances for Wanderers in three seasons at the club. White also impressed last season in his 29 appearances on loan at Blackpool, who finished in the League One relegation zone. He now plies his trade at Peterborough.

White joined Wanderers from Sheffield Wednesday in 2013, when Douglas Freedman managed to persuade the youngster to sign professional terms on the right side of the Lancs-Yorks boundary. He spent the bulk of his time at Bolton out on loan, namely Bury and Notts County, and at the latter he landed himself in a spot of bother after sharing his thoughts with his Twitter followers regarding the sacking of former manager Shaun Derry. The less-than-tactful "LOOOOOOOOOL, shock" didn't go down too well with County fans, no prizes for guessing why.

White impressed in his season with the Seasiders, no mean feat considering the circumstances. It was not enough to reward him with a contract extension at the Macron, but it did turn the heads of Gavin McCann, recently appointed at Peterborough United this summer. White signed a two year deal for The Posh.

Posh defeated eloquent-half wit (think football's Russell Brand with no hair and a less "out there" fashion sense) Keith Hill and Rochdale in a 3-2 victory at Spotland on the opening day this weekend. White impressed in the 90 minutes, using his pace to support attacks down the right wing, with Peterborough Today awarding him a 7/10 (his fellow defenders received 5s and 6s if that matters much to the price of fish).

Anyway, we play Blackpool tomorrow, and we're going to win. See you there.
