EMIL Jaaskelainen played his first games as a fully fledged Kendal Town player this week after making his loan move from Blackpool permanent.

The striker, son of former West Ham and Bolton keeper Jussi, has made a big impression at the club since he joined on a temporary basis earlier this season.

Club officials were delighted to capture Jaaskelainen who played his part in a fine league win at Tadcaster on Saturday.
