Blackpool’s triumphant players handed the credit for their shock promotion to ­manager Ian Holloway after the 3-2 win playing Cardiff at Wembley on the weekend

The Seasiders, arguably the smallest club to compete in the Premier League, return to the top flight for the first time since 1971 after seeing off the Bluebirds on Saturday.

And Charlie Adam, who scored their first goal, and Ben Burgess believe it is the input of Holloway – in his first season in charge at Bloomfield Road – which has transformed the club’s fortunes.

Blackpool stand to earn as much as £90million from their Championship play-off final victory, which was capped by Brett Ormerod’s winner just before half-time.

Cardiff had twice led through Michael Chopra and Joe Ledley but the Seasiders came back twice to equalise via Adam and Gary Taylor-Fletcher.

Skipper Adam, 24, said: ‘The manager has instilled a lot of pride in us and given us so much belief.

‘That has got to be our biggest strength next season.

Blackpool who will parade their premiership promotion today with the fans will be a very proud moment for them all which will lift the town and for sure next year bring in better business.
