Ghana's No. 1

Kingson fantastic in second Premier League appearance

Published on: 14 November 2010

Ghana goalkeeper Richard Kingson was impressive in his second English Premier League start for Blackpool when they clashed with West Ham on Saturday.

The action-starved player was influential with his fantastic acrobatic saves that helped them to hold the home side to a goalless draw.

The Ghanaian shot-stopper was a second half substitute after taking over from injured Matt Gilks soon after the break.

As the Hammers scented blood, Kingson’s outstretched foot was enough to deny Nigerian striker Victor Obinna .

Kingson pulled off another remarkable save on 79 minutes to palm away Noble’s curler.

He made an acrobatic one-handed save to tip Noble's curling 20-yard effort behind.

His performance has sparked hopes that if Gilks fails to extend his expiring contract, Kingson could become Blackpool’s first choice.

This comes after he impressed in his debut game on Wednesday even though they lost 3-2 against Aston Villa.

It was his second Premier League start since joining the club on a free transfer before the transfer window shut in August.
