Josh Lynam returned to the club in January of 2015 following a reversal in his decision to move down under to Australia.

A product of the club’s youth team, a string of impressive performances saw Paul March give Josh his senior debut on the opening day of the 2013 season as the Cougars fell to a defeat away at the Batley Bulldogs.

Towards the end of that season, Josh became a regular starter in the side and made one of the second row spots in a string of impressive performances as Cougars narrowly avoided relegation to Championship One with Josh scoring three tries in thirteen appearances.

After being awarded the 11 jersey by Paul March ahead of the 2014 season, ‘Lyny’ would appear in thirty of the side’s thirty two games during the season, including the Challenge Cup Quarter Final defeat at the Widnes Vikings.

Josh added a further seven tries to his tally during the season but sensationally single handedly brought the Cougars from 22-4 down away at Workington Town to win 24-22 including the winning try with just under a minute left on the clock.

A number of Man of the Match performances by Josh saw interest from local rivals Bradford Bulls but this interest faded following the Bulls decision to replace Francis Cummins with James Lowes.

Following the clubs relegation to League One, Josh departed to sign with Queensland Cup outfit Norths Devils in Australia, however, a number of problems surrounding his Visa and Employment saw Josh return home and re-sign with the Cougars.

A regular throughout 2015, Lynam suffered a knee injury following a dangerous tackle at Wath Brow in February 2016 but returned to play his part in Blackpool as the Cougars defeated York to lift the iPro Sport Cup.
