English-born Ghanaian midfielder Cameron Antwi says that he learnt a lot during his time at lower tier English side Blackpool.
The 20-year-old midfielder joined the club in 2019 after leaving now-Premier League side Fulham, Antwi adjusted quickly to life in a Category Three academy, having left one of the best in the country at Category One Fulham.
Signing a professional contract a year later and bedding himself into the first team squad with the Seasiders aged just 18, Antwi was a player many felt had the potential to make an impact.
He made just two appearances for the first team one of them in the Carabao Cup against Middlesbrough last season before Neil Critchley decided to release the midfielder who also spent time on loan at Southport and AFC Telford.
The English-born Ghanaian midfielder speaking in an interview with LancsLive says that despite being released by the English side he learnt a lot.
“I feel like I learned a lot, especially coming from Fulham, a category one academy into a category three academy where you learn different things. I was in a different environment with a different playing style and being from down south coming up north I got used to Northern people too - so I learned a lot.
“Especially going into the first team from a young age at 18, being around those types of players just learning everyday. I was taking a lot of their things and putting it into my game so I definitely learned a lot during my time at Blackpool.”
He was born in England to Ghanaian parents and is still eligible to play for Ghana at senior level.
