A LATICS fans’ group are now considering the next stage of their plans to increase the pressure on owner Abdallah Lemsagam.

More than 2,500 signatures have been added to an open letter calling for the Moroccan former football agent to sell the club.

A tumultuous three years have seen performances nosedive on the field and fans concerned by near-constant issues off the pitch.

Believing enough is enough, PTB are set to announce more follow-up action and will meet with the Blackpool Supporters’ Trust tomorrow night to discuss how they went about increasing scrutiny on former owner Owen Oyston.

The group has previously staged a protest at Boundary Park in December 2019 and asked supporters to consider boycotting a game against Carlisle the following month.

PTB launched the petition having halted monthly meetings with chief executive Karl Evans citing a lack of progress on major issues.

“Part of our responsibility now is to try to bring people to the table and one way to do that is to make fans look passionate and organised,” said Steve Shipman, a founder member of PTB.

“Karl has been a positive but even then the key issues going on at the club, player disputes, the North Stand situation, they aren’t making any inroads and it’s time for them to up sticks and allow someone else to come in and try.

“There is so much potential with it, but when we have got the cheapest season tickets for as long as I can remember and only sold 1,650 that says something.”

A takeover would be far from straightforward with Boundary Park leased from owners Brass Bank, but Shipman insists there have been interested parties that PTB have been made aware of.

“We know bids have been turned down of around £1.5million,” he said. “That’s the common figure that people are coming back with.

“Some are serious offers. But what we can’t guarantee is that the new owners will be better for the club.

“That’s the risk you take with doing something like this.

“If it could be worse, I’m not entirely sure how.”
