This experienced central midfield player joined Blackpool during the 2000 close season and featured regularly in the opening matches.

Mike then lost his place and suffered injuries and it was not until January that he returned to first-team action.

Strong in the tackle and still a competent ball winner in the centre of the park, he netted his first goal for the Tangerines in the 6-0 thrashing of Scunthorpe United in February.

Mike was released by Blackpool in March 2002.
