The 1910-11 season was Blackpool F.C.'s fourteenth season (eleventh consecutive) in the Football League. They competed in the twenty-team Division Two, then the second tier of English football, finishing seventh.

Joe Clennell was the club's top scorer, with nineteen goals (eighteen in the league and one in the FA Cup). It was his only season with Blackpool.

Season synopsis[edit]

Aside from Clennell's goals haul, a strong start to the campaign (only one defeat in their first nine games, including four wins in their first six) plus a four-game win streak between 12 November and 10 December assisted in Blackpool's top-ten finish. As in the previous season, they beat and drew their two matches against the eventual champions (in this case, West Bromwich Albion).

For the second consecutive season, their FA Cup run ended at the first hurdle after losing to Manchester United. After initially being drawn at home to the Red Devils, Blackpool sold the ground rights to United, hence the tie was played at Old Trafford.
