Having been a regular goal scorer throughout his career, Blackpool manager Ian Holloway moved quickly to secure Kevin and hopes he will provide the goals to fire Blackpool straight back to the Premier League. Speaking after concluding his contract Kevin stated: Like everyone else in the country, I enjoyed watching Blackpool play and creating chances. It was exciting to watch and Ian Holloway is an infectious manager. That was certainly a major factor in me wanting to join Blackpool. “I’ve scored many goals in my career and I still believe I’ve got many more in me. Hopefully I can get on the end of a few of those chances that we create.”
