The 21-year-old was reunited with Critchley on domestic deadline day, joining the League One side on a short-term deal until 17th January.


Woodburn became Liverpool’s youngest ever goalscorer in 2016 when he scored against Leeds United in the EFL Cup and much has been expected from him.



Woodburn feels that Critchley knows exactly what he can do and he knows what the Blackpool boss brings to the table as a coach, meaning he is relishing his spell at the club under a familiar face.


“I’m really looking forward to being here and playing football again”, Woodburn told Blackpool’s official site.



“Neil Critchley was a big factor in me playing for Liverpool and I feel as though he knows me as a player and I know him as a coach.


“Hopefully we can have a good connection and be successful on the pitch again.”



Critchley on his part insisted that having worked with Woodburn previously he knows the quality the Liverpool loanee can bring into his team moving forward.


“In coming through the Academy at Liverpool, he has gone on to play for the first team and gained full international caps for Wales.


“I know the quality he can bring to the team, having worked with him previously.


“I am delighted to welcome him to Blackpool and to be working with him once again.”


Blackpool have had a lacklustre start to the new League One season, picking up just three points from their opening five games.
