Hyde sign former Blackpool forward Matthew Blinkhorn

Blue Square Bet Premier newcomers Hyde have completed a deal to take forward Matthew Blinkhorn to Ewen Fields.

The 27-year-old ended last season at York, scoring once in 15 games to help the Minstermen seal their return back to the Football League in May.

Blinkhorn began his career at Blackpool and had been on trial with Barrow earlier this summer.

Hyde face Luton on Friday, hoping to add to the two points they picked up from draws with Braintree and Barrow.
