Joe Lewis eyes reign as Blackpool number one

New Blackpool goalkeeper Joe Lewis wants to make the number one position at the club his own after joining on loan from Cardiff.

New Blackpool goalkeeper Joe Lewis has set his sights on securing the number one spot at the club this season.

The Tangerines have been without a goalkeeper for the entirety of pre-season after Matt Gilks joined Burnley, but finally secured the services of a shot-stopper by signing Lewis on loan from Cardiff City earlier today.

The 26-year-old is now hopeful that he can get some regular first-team football under his belt after spending time on the bench behind David Marshall in Wales.

"I was sat at Cardiff for the last two seasons behind David Marshall, who has done outstanding," he told Blackpool's official website.

"It's great to come to a club like Blackpool and hopefully make the number one position my own."

Blackpool get their Championship campaign underway on Saturday as they take on Nottingham Forest.
