FROM THE NOTEBOOK...

THE GAFFER

Welcome back to Deepdale for a derby game under the lights.

We had mixed success here

in derbies last season in my

tenure, but the atmosphere

and performance against Blackpool

was fantastic, and it would be great

to try and replicate that night.

The players, of course, get themselves

up for every game we play, there’s

no question about that, but ultimately

a derby against your rivals always

gives you that extra bit of motivation

to go and get three points.

This is a derby match which hasn’t been

played for many years now, and now

Burnley are back in the Championship

the bragging rights are back up for

grabs this evening. We know how

important that is to the fans.

Burnley have obviously got themselves

off to a good start this season. Yes,

they’d have liked a few more points

on the board, the same as us, but I’ve

watched a lot of their games and you can

see the brand of football which Vincent

Kompany has brought to the club.

He’s got them playing his own

style and he’s brought in some

real quality players, so it’s a game

we’re really looking forward to.

“ULTIMATELY A

DERBY AGAINST

YOUR RIVALS

ALWAYS GIVES

YOU THAT

EXTRA BIT OF

MOTIVATION

TO GO AND GET

THREE POINTS.”

I’ve said previously that we want to

sell Deepdale out and really make it a

fortress, and it looks like we’re going

to approach a sell-out in this game,

so it’s one I’m really excited about.

Get behind the boys, make yourself

heard as you always do and let’s

hope for a night to remember.

Enjoy the game.

Ryan

THE MAIN

INTERVIEW

Greg

Cunningham

Having tasted derby day success over Burnley previously, Greg Cunningham is

looking forward to coming up against the Clarets under the Deepdale lights.

The Irishman started in the 2-0 victory

at Turf Moor back in 2015, when

goals from Will Keane and Daniel

Johnson saw Simon Grayson’s side leave

East Lancashire with the three points.

Burnley went on to get promoted that season,

and their stint in the Premier League means

the two haven’t come head to head since

the 2015/16 campaign – until tonight.

Greg told The One And Only: “I remember

Will Keane’s goal up against his

brother, it was a great strike.

“I also remember the atmosphere was class

after the game. They were flying high at the

time and I think they got promoted that year,

so everyone was really buzzing with the win.

“We all love winning games, but derby games

are extra sweet. We’ve got a lot now this year in

and around us, so there’s a lot of bragging rights

to have in the north west in the Championship,

so it’s a game we’re looking forward to.”

Tonight’s clash with Burnley will be the

second of eight derby matches to come

this season, with a goalless draw at

Wigan Athletic kicking the season off.

“WE ALL LOVE

WINNING GAMES,

BUT DERBY GAMES

ARE EXTRA SWEET.”

It’s a very new-look Burnley which will be

coming to Deepdale this evening, not just in

personnel, but also in style, having completely

changed the way they operate since Vincent

Kompany took over in the summer.

Greg said: “He’s gone in there and in such a short

space of time completely changed their philosophy.

“You can see what he wants to do and how

he wants to play, and they’ve brought in the

players he feels will suit his style, so it’ll be a

tough game, but it’s on we’ll be ready for.

“We’re at home and I’m sure Deepdale

will be bouncing on derby day; we’ve just

got to put in a good performance and

go and get the bragging rights.”


20 « The one and only

Both manager Ryan Lowe and the players have

spoken about the internal conversations which

have taken place about making Deepdale a real

fortress this season, especially given the increased

number of home supporters coming to matches

following the successful season card campaign.

However, Ryan Lowe’s side are yet to taste

victory on home soil this term, and their

previous game – against Birmingham City –

saw the home side concede a league goal for

the first time in seven-and-a-bit matches.

Greg Cunningham has been a part of the backline,

since his introduction against Watford, which

broke records for the amount of clean sheets

kept at the start of a league season, and he

admitted it was a strange feeling when Maxime

Colin found the back of the net for Birmingham.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been a part of something

like the run we were on,” he said.

“As it’s going along you don’t want to jinx

anything, but we were feeling like we could

just keep going and that’s the mindset as a

defender that you’ve got to have I suppose.

“Regardless of who you’re coming up against, it’s

good to go into games knowing that you can keep

the door closed and set a good foundation to go on

and win the game, so it was a little bit frustrating,

“I DON’T THINK I’VE

EVER BEEN A PART OF

SOMETHING LIKE THE

RUN WE WERE ON.”

but you’re going to concede at some stage and

it’s about how you react, how you bounce back.

“We can still take great confidence from the

run because there’s some quality attacking

players and attacking teams in this division so

to keep seven shut outs in the first seven was

really impressive; from the whole team.”

That’s a point Greg was very keen to stress,

that the clean sheets come as a result of the

hard work put in by each and every member

of the team, starting from the front.

Troy Parrott, on loan for the season from Spurs,

has been the man up top for every league

game so far this season, and he’s one of many

Irishman currently involved in the first team.

Greg added: “I think the more

Irish boys, the merrier!

GREG CUNNINGHAM MADE HIS

150TH APPEARANCE FOR THE

CLUB IN THE RECENT HOME

DRAW AGAINST WATFORD!

“Predominantly Irish lads are a great crop

to have around. The minimum requirements,

I feel, from Irish players is they always give

100 per cent every time, fully committed.

“And we’ve got players here who have

got the ability on top of that, too.

“Off the pitch as well they’re always good

craic, but when times are serious they roll

their sleeves up and get going, so I’m always

a fan of more Irish in the building.”

Robbie Brady – formerly of Burnley – is

another of the Irish pack, having arrived as a

free agent in the summer, and he’s someone

Greg was already well familiar with.

He said: “I’m a year older than Robbie, but

in the underage system he always played

up a year, so I’ve played with Robbie from

Ireland U15s the whole way through really.

“He’s had an amazing career, he’s a top

quality player and I think we’re very

lucky to have him in the building.

“Playing in the Premier League for as long as he

did, and the amount of international caps he has

as well, it just shows the player that we have.

“And then off the pitch he’s a great character and

he’s slotted into the dressing room perfectly.”


ANYONE WHO ENTERS THE PITCH WITHOUT

PERMISSION AND THOSE CARRYING OR USING

‘LOVE FOOTBALL. PROTECT THE GAME’

A message about anti-social and criminal behaviour

To mark the new season, we want to

make you aware of new measures

being taken across all of football

to ensure everyone can have a safe

and enjoyable experience. We are

supporting strong action from the

FA, Premier League and EFL to tackle

anti-social and criminal behaviours

that put all of us at risk.

This reflects the seriousness of

the risks to fans and staff – pyros

can burn at 2000 degrees Celsius

and cause lifechanging injuries,

while entering the pitch endangers

players, managers and match

officials.

We know those who commit these

illegal acts do not represent the

majority of supporters.

Greg and Dacey

on the final day of

the 2021/22 season.

Cathriona and

Greg on their

wedding day, with

daughter Dacey,

A leader on the pitch, and a family man

away from it – things have been all change

in Greg’s life over the past year.

Last time Greg spoke to The One And Only, his

daughter Dacey was still very new to the world,

having been born in October 2021, and in the blink

of an eye she’s fast approaching turning one.

That’s not the only big life event to happen

over the past 12 months, though, with

Greg marrying his long-term partner

Cathriona back home in Galway in June.

Talking about young Dacey, he laughed:

“That’s gone quick, hasn’t it?

“She’s 11 months now, so we’re getting ready

for her first birthday. She’s amazing.

“She’s still sleeping through the night, which is

brilliant, and it’s just great to come home after

training to her and my wife and our dog Ralph, so

it’s nice to have that family life away from football.”

Having first arrived at Deepdale in July 2015,

Greg’s circumstances are now very different

at the age of 31 to those of the 24-year-old who

signed under Simon Grayson seven years ago.

Looking back, he joked he was 'probably

quite lazy outside of football', but he now

has plenty to be keeping himself busy.

“I’m sure everyone in football can relate,

it dictates everything,” he said.

“It dictates when you’re in, when you’re off, what

you eat, what you’re doing on your days off, but it’s

nice to have that different focus outside of football.

“On my days off I used to just be recovering

and watching football on the TV, but I’ve found

now with the dog and Dacey, we do a lot more

outside of football, like going on walks, going

to soft play centres and stuff like that really.

“We’re very blessed to have Dacey in our lives and

we’re really enjoying life outside of football.”

While the pain of relegation from the Premier League may still be lingering in the minds of

some supporters, Burnley and new manager Vincent Kompany have wasted no time adapting

to life in the Sky Bet Championship. North End’s Lancashire rivals, known as the Clarets,

enjoyed a lengthy six-season stay in England’s top division – even finishing seventh in 2017/18

to reach the Europa League qualifying rounds. Bringing free-flowing, attacking football to

Turf Moor, the Belgian boss has overseen a big change this summer with a heap of overseas

talent brought to the club. Examples of this include Vitinho, Benson Manuel and Anass

Zaroury – all additions from the Belgian first tier, where Kompany had previously managed

RSC Anderlecht. An encounter between North End and Burnley has been years in the making,

over six in fact, when the visitors claimed a narrow 1-0 win at Deepdale during the 2015/16

Championship season. At the time of writing, the Clarets occupy a Play-Off position and will

arrive at Deepdale looking to build on their positive start.

23-years-old

Goalkeeper

Previous clubs:

Adana Demirspor (loan)

Arijanet Muric reunited with former team-mateturned-manager

Vincent Kompany at Burnley

this summer. The goalkeeper joined Manchester

City in 2015 from GC Zurich, where he developed

into a first team player for two years under

captain Kompany. Loan spells would take up

some time away from the Etihad, though, as

he aimed to gain more valuable experience.

Internationally, he represented Montenegro at

U21 level, but switched allegiances to Kosovo

in 2018, granting 27 senior appearances. At his

new home in Burnley, Muric has been forced off

twice through injury already this season, and

with Friday's game against Norwich City being

postponed, it remains to be seen whether Muric

can be expected to be available at Deepdale.

Having started at Chelsea at the age of nine, Jack

Cork seized his chances to go out on loan with

various clubs in League One and the Championship

– gaining 100 EFL appearances by 2009. Two years

later, the midfielder made a permanent switch

to Southampton, helping them earn promotion to

the Premier League. A Saint for a further three

campaigns, Cork then moved on to Swansea

City. Previously at Turf Moor on two separate

occasions on loan, Cork joined the Clarets

permanently in 2017. The captain has since made

over 220 appearances across all spells. He played

in all six 2018/19 Europa League games and scored

in both wins against Aberdeen and Istanbul

Basaksehir, to give the Burnley fans some fond

memories for years to come.

Previous clubs:

Arsenal Academy, Southampton

Taylor Harwood-Bellis has proven to be another

promising product of the Manchester City Academy.

Born in Stockport, he has spent over a decade

at the Etihad, taking a similar journey to that of

Phil Foden. Having already earned himself two

Carabao Cup winners’ medals and the 2020 FA

Youth Cup, Harwood-Bellis then claimed the U23

title with City prior to a loan move. Playing for

Blackburn Rovers in 2021, the defender has also

spent time on loan with RSC Anderlecht and Stoke

City. Internationally, Harwood-Bellis remains a vital

part of the England U21 setup. He's played for the

Young Lions from U16 level onwards, captaining

two separate age groups and making over 30

caps. He will now spend the current campaign

at Turf Moor as they look to secure promotion.

Another talented player on a season-long loan

deal, Nathan Tella has joined Burnley from

Southampton. The youngster spent ten years in

the Arsenal Academy, before signing permanently

for the Saints in 2017. Having impressed for

their 'B Team', his senior debut came in 2020

against Norwich City. The next campaign saw

Tella make his first Premier League start against

Leeds United, and his tally has since risen to 41

appearances prior to the move to Turf Moor.

Playing mainly on the left wing under Kompany,

Tella has already shown talent which has those

back at St Mary’s so excited about his future.

Scoring twice in a thrilling 3-3 encounter with

Blackpool, alongside a further goal against Wigan

Athletic, he is one for defenders to be wary of.

first, best, last...

We look back on our first, best and last wins at Deepdale

over our friends from East Lancashire.

First

Not only was it the first meeting of the

sides, but the first ever Football League

game for the two teams, as they met

here at Deepdale on the opening day of

the competition in this same week, 134

years ago - 8th September 1888.

It was a glorious sunny day, but kickoff

was delayed by the late arrival of

the visitors, but North End struck first

with Fred Dewhurst grabbing the club’s

first ever Football League goal after

just two minutes.

Within 60 seconds, Jack Gordon

had secured the second. Eventually

Burnley clawed themselves back into

the reckoning, Gallacher scoring from

close range

after good

work from

Keenan, on

21 minutes.

After the

break

North End

stretched

their lead,

with a

Jimmy Ross

brace, both

courtesy

of passes from Dewhurst, before the

captain himself made it five, with his

second of the game.

Poland grabbed a second for the

Clarets in the final minute, but it was

a start that signalled the intent of PNE,

Best

The biggest home win over our

Lancashire rivals came just three

years later in February 1891, in a

season the side were narrowly pipped

to the title by Everton.

The visitors on the day conceded

seven at Deepdale, but would gain

revenge just a month later, defeating

the Lilywhites 6-2 and in effect costing

them a third league title in as many

years.

However, this particular day was one

where North End were in invincible

form, thrashing their opponents.

Goals on the day came from Nick Ross,

Jack Gordon, Jimmy Ross (with a

brace), William Campbell – who also

grabbed two – and Hugh Gallacher

as Major Sudell’s men made it a

magnificent afternoon.

Gallagher, who scored on the day,

ended the campaign with six goals,

which despite the low total, made

him the top scorer, which was where

North End’s problems lay in the season

where they could again have won the

league.

PNE line-up: Trainer, Holmes, N Ross,

Kelso, G Drummond, Stewart, Gordon, J

Ross, Campbell, Crossan, Gallacher.

Last

It has been 13 years since the

Lilywhites last defeated Burnley in PR1,

although we haven’t had many games

since.

That day they beat Play-Off rivals, the

Clarets, thanks to two penalties in a

closely-fought Lancashire derby.

Callum Davidson scored a 51st-minute

penalty after visiting 'keeper Brian

Jensen brought down Stephen Elliott.

Burnley substitute Robbie Blake curled

in a stunning 25-yard free-kick to

equalise in the 77th minute.

But with seven minutes to go Steven

Caldwell was judged to have handled

and substitute Neil Mellor put away the

resulting spot-kick.

Mellor said afterwards: “Callum

(Davidson) had already scored one and

he said he didn’t want to take a second.

So it’s just very happy days. We’re

doing really well at home and the lads

have done really well today.”

PNE line-up: Lonergan, Jones, Mawene,

St. Ledger, Davidson, Sedgwick, McKenna,

Chaplow (Nicholson, 81), Wallace, Elliott

(Mellor, 84), Parkin. Subs not used: Brown,

Nolan, C Neal.

Ashley Barnes moved into the Football League with

Plymouth Argyle in 2007, but struggled to be given

any real first team opportunities. As a result, he

was loaned out to the likes of Oxford United and

Salisbury City, before developing further with

Eastbourne Borough and Torquay United. This

took Barnes to 2010, where he was presented

with the offer to join League One side Brighton

& Hove Albion, which he eagerly accepted. The

striker made a big impact and, in April 2011, he

scored the decisive goal in a 4-3 victory over

Dagenham and Redbridge to confirm the Seagulls’

Championship promotion. Becoming their 2011/12

leading scorer with 14 goals in all competitions,

and going on to record a total of 53 goals in 170

appearances for Brighton, Barnes signed for

Burnley in 2014. Former manager Sean Dyche

needed his man to help push the Clarets on and

just five months later, Barnes did exactly that.

Scoring in a 2-0 win over Wigan at Turf Moor,

Premier League football was achieved and he also

claimed goal of the season. Over 250 appearance

later for Burnley, with 200 in the Premier League,

Barnes remains a regular feature at the Turf.

Previous clubs: RSC Anderlecht

Widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s

greatest ever centre backs, Vincent Kompany spent

11 seasons with Manchester City – captaining them

for eight of those. Born in Uccle, Belgium, Kompany

started his professional career at Anderlecht.

Having graduated from their youth system, he

became a first team player for three seasons

before moving to Bundesliga club Hamburg in 2006.

However, the defender’s move to Manchester City

just two years later was the defining moment in his

career. He would go on to win four Premier League

titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups and the

Community Shield twice. Upon the expiration of his

contract in 2019, Kompany returned to Anderlecht

as a player-manager – announcing his retirement

from professional football a year later to focus on

the managerial role. He would serve just short of

two years in charge of the Belgian side, leaving

them in May 2022, before joining Burnley in June

following the club’s relegation from the Premier

League. This meant that Kompany became the

Clarets’ first ever manager from outside the UK

and Ireland, as well as the first Belgian to manage

in English football. His debut as Burnley boss came

in July, and the world watched a very new-look

Burnley claim a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town.

100 YEARS AGO

with Ian Rigby

For this season’s historical page, I thought it might be an ideal opportunity to

highlight the players who represented Preston North End exactly one hundred

years ago during the 1922/23 season. The country was still recovering from

the effects of World War One, but was slowly getting back on track.

TOMMY HAMILTON

T

ommy

Hamilton was yet another

proud Scotsman to join Preston

North End, signed for a reported

club record fee of £4,600 from

Kilmarnock in February 1921.

That fee was very expensive over 100

years ago, especially for a full back.

It proved to be money well spent,

though, as he was a North Ender

until 1929. Tommy, as a Kilmarnock

player, was a Scottish FA Cup winner

and had represented the Scottish

League against the League of Ireland

a few months prior to joining the

Scottish clan at Deepdale. To be fair,

he found English league football

quicker than what he was used

to, but what he lacked in speed he

more than made up for with superb

positional play. The Deepdale faithful

knew a good footballer when they

saw one and he soon became popular

with the knowledgeable fans. Sadly,

it is recorded in history that it was

he who gave away the penalty that

Huddersfield Town scored to win the

1922 FA Cup Final. However, he always

insisted that the foul was committed

outside the penalty box, the fact being

supported later by newsreel and

press photographs. That’s football!

Tommy proved to be one of the most

consistent defenders the club had

on their books in the 1920s. Having

said that, at the start of the 1924/25

season, for some reason he had not

been resigned for the club and went

off to play a few games for the Dick,

Kerr’s men’s team. North End in the

meantime lost their opening five games

without him and realised their error,

quickly signing him on again. It still

proved a difficult season for Preston

North End and they suffered relegation

to division two along with Nottingham

Forest, having lost 26 games. When the

legendary Joe McCall retired, Tommy

Hamilton was awarded the captaincy,

a role he held with obvious pride.

During the 1927/28 campaign, he was

an ever present whilst in his 35th

year, quite an achievement in itself.

The club finished fourth in the league

and scored 100 goals along the way

that particular season, the 100th goal

coming in the final game of the season,

a 6-4 win away to Grimsby Town.

During his North End career he played

in front of 12 different goalkeepers

and partnered 12 different full backs

too. He played his final North End game

in April 1929 and, instead of retiring,

he moved to join a non-league team

named Manchester Central who had

dreams of league status. That never

materialised and he later served Great

Harwood, and in his 44th year he joined

Leyland Motors. Sadly, Tommy died in

Preston on Christmas Day 1959.

FOR

RECORD

with Mike Payne

Over the years, many club records have been set by Preston North

End players, and in this new series of articles we look at some of those

records that have been set, and broken, here at Deepdale. Some are well

known, but others are more obscure, and hopefully fascinating.

Over the years when we have

had regular scorers topping

our end of season figures, it

has always been interesting to see

how near they may get to catching

our all-time leading scorers.

We have had some low totals in

recent years at the top of our

season’s goalscoring, and not since

Joe Garner have we had anyone top

a total of 20 goals for the season,

until last season that is. Emil Riis

scored 17 in the league and four more

in the cup, and he now has deep

targets to reach! At the start of this

season he needed another 15 goals

to qualify for a list I compiled where

the cut-off is 40 goals for the club.

Last season, Alan Browne reached

that total, and Daniel Johnson (56) is

shooting up the chart that includes 51

of our players who have 40 or more

goals for North End to their name.

Those 51 men straddle all the eras,

from Jimmy Ross in the 19th century,

to Percy Smith in the 1900s, Tommy

Roberts in the 1910s and ‘20s, Ted

Harper in the 1930s, Willie MacIntosh

straight after WW2, on to Tom Finney,

Charlie Wayman and Tommy Thompson

in the 1950s, and Alex Dawson and

Brian Godfrey in the ‘60s. Then came

Gerry Ingram who began the 1970s in

style, before Alex Bruce, Mike Elwiss,

Steve Elliott, John Thomas and Gary

Brazil took us through to the end of

the ‘80s. Graham Shaw, Tony Ellis, Andy

Saville, Jon Macken, Richard Cresswell,

David Nugent and Neil Mellor took

us up to the first ten years of this

century, before Iain Hume, Joe Garner

and Jordan Hugill took us through to

Emil. Goodness me, there was some

talent amongst that list of names,

wasn’t there? And I’m sure you all have

your favourites. Mine were the 'Black

Prince', Alex Dawson, and ‘Brucey’,

who I still rate very highly, as he is

a great bloke, and never gained the

plaudits he deserved bearing in mind

he played in some poor sides at times.

I never saw Sir Tom play, which breaks

my heart, but I did touch Tommy

Thompson’s right knee once on a

wonderful visit to see him and his wife

at their home, a treasured memory.

On researching the 1932/33 season,

I learned so much about Ted Harper.

That season he scored a record

37 goals for us, all in the league.

He started with six in the first two


The one and only » 41

Alex Dawson

Ted Harper Alex Bruce

games, a brace and then four, against

Bradford PA and Burnley respectively,

and he never really stopped scoring

for the rest of that campaign. By

Christmas Eve 1932 he had 19 goals

under his belt, and he made it to 20 on

the day after Boxing Day, in a 2-0 win

at Oldham. The PNE goals record in a

season up to that point had been set

by Tommy Roberts, when he scored

30 during the 1926/27 campaign. He

had twice before reached 29 goals,

and broke the 30 barrier in a 1-0

win at Fulham on 12th March 1927.

Roberts played in the next match

but was then seriously hurt in a car

accident and never played in any of

the remaining 11 games that season.

What might his total have been, one

wonders? Meanwhile, Ted Harper, six

years later, surged past that 30-goal

mark, when PNE beat Lincoln 5-0 at

Deepdale on 11th March, almost the

same day as Roberts, but six years

later. Harper netted four of the five

goals that day and went on to score

a further six goals in the remaining

games that season. Since WW2, the

nearest anyone has come to beating

or equalling Harper’s record was in

1963/64, when Alex Dawson reached

36 league and cup goals. A fine run

to the FA Cup Final helped Alex, but

he did reach 30 league goals too. The

ironic thing was that he also missed

a crucial penalty in a 2-0 defeat at

home to Derby that year, a goal which

would have given him a share of the

record. Other 30-plus totals since

Harper include Willie McIntosh (32),

Charlie Wayman (32), Tommy Thompson

(34), in a run of seasons that saw him

top score with 24, 29, 34 and 21 goals

between 1955 and 1959. Others to have

reached the magic 30 are Brucey,

Tony Ellis and Andy Saville – the last

player to achieve the feat in 1995/96.

The wonderful Alex Bruce topped

the scoring in seven seasons, one

more than Roberts, so you will not be

surprised to learn that he comes third

in the top five. Fifth is Thompson with

128, Dawson with 132 is fourth, Bruce

with 172 is third, Roberts is second

on 179 and, of course, Tom Finney is

number one on 210. I haven’t mention

the maestro much in this article,

but he did top the scoring in his last

season, 1959/60, with 21 goals. He also

had a pretty consistent record in every

one of his 14 post-war seasons with

the club, and one last thing, Jimmy

Ross (123) and Charlie Wayman (117)

were the only other players to pass

the 100-goal mark for Preston North

End. So, Emil, lots of work to do!

ACADEMY MATCH REPORT

PRESTON NORTH END U18s 2

BLACKPOOL U18s 3

PNE U18s were defeated on derby

day as they lost 3-2 to Blackpool

in the first game of the newly

entered Premier League Professional

Development League Cup.

Kitt Nelson was in the goals once

again as he scored a first-half brace,

however, a second-half comeback gave

the Seasiders all three points.

Both teams were looking to get on the

ball early and keep possession, and it

was North End that took the lead just

eight minutes in.

A lovely move on the left between

Nelson, Felipe Rodriguez-Gentile and

Jacob Slater saw the latter get down

the left, whip a ball to the back post

where Ethan Eccleston was there to

head back across goal for Nelson to

tap home.

Just eight minutes later the visitors

were level thanks to a wonder-strike

by Dannen Francis. The midfielder

turned brilliantly on the edge of the

area and fired a wicked curling effort

right into the top left-hand corner.

The Lilywhites retook the lead

once again, thanks to Nelson. Noah

Mawene’s long range effort was

parried by the 'keeper, but Nelson was

in the right place to follow up on the

rebound to score his second of the

game.

The second half continued in the same

flow as the first with no team being

able to keep hold of possession long

enough to launch a meaningful attack.

The Seasiders got back on level terms

64 minutes in thanks to a strike by

Luke Byron and then went in front two

minutes later as Taylor Bowen placed

his effort into the left-hand corner for

the visitors.

Coach Andy Fensome was disappointed

with the team's second half efforts:

“We weren’t brave enough,” he said. “I

don’t think we looked to pass the ball

enough, there was sloppy defending,

we weren’t looking to challenge

enough.

“However, first half I thought we were

good to okay, we passed the ball and

moved it around quickly which was the

reaction we wanted to see after last

week.”

Even in defeat, Fensome admits that

there are positives to take from the

game: “I was pleased with the initial

reaction from last week’s defeat. Kitt

Nelson was able to score two good

goals being in the right place at the

right time. As well the players are

continuing to develop which is always

good to see.”

which was saved soon after, before

Lewis Leigh saw a smart curling effort

tipped onto the post by goalkeeper

Tommy Simkin.

On 39 minutes, Maguire continued to

look sharp, as he cut inside from the

left and sent a low, right-footed effort

just wide of goal.

After the break it was the visitors who

were creating the early opportunities,

with Luke Redfern heading wide firstly,

before James-Taylor then volleyed

wide on 53 minutes.

On the hour mark, substitute Rio

Pemberton - who replaced Diaby -

sent an inviting cross into the box

for Mikey O’Neill and his header was

acrobatically saved by Simkin.

The ’keeper then produced an even

better stop to tip Leigh’s 20-yard

free-kick onto the bar, and Maguire’s

follow-up was then cleared off the line.

Stoke City could, and perhaps should,

have found an equaliser on 72 minutes,

however, Nathaniel Opoku’s volley from

eight yards was put wide.

Leigh tested the goalkeeper again

before time was up, but Maguire’s

early goal was enough for the three

points either way.

54 « The one and only

PNE WOMEN

EDGED OUT BY

HASLINGDEN

Preston North End Women lost for the first time this season, ending a seven-match unbeaten

run, with a 3-2 defeat to Haslingden Ladies and Girls.

Following four games unbeaten in

pre-season, and seven points from

a possible nine being taken from the

first three league games, North End fell

just short against Haslingden.

Madison Hadley equalised after North

End went behind in the first half, but the

visitors pulled away in the second, with

Freya Hunt’s late effort ultimately just a

consolation.

In the first few minutes, Haslingden

dominated possession leaving PNE with

plenty of defending to do.

It wasn’t long after that when Haslingden

had a shot from 40 yards out, which left

goalkeeper Justine Elliott unable to save,

seeing the visitors go one ahead.

North End had good chances at the other

end with Katie Woodhead having a shot

which deflected into Liv Askam's path, but

her shot was saved by the ‘keeper.

Elliott ensured her team stayed in the

game with some spectacular saves to

keep it at 1-0.

Great passing from the Lilywhites saw the

ball played through to Hadley, but she was

unable to get the equaliser.

Sam Ball made a difference for the side

when she came on, holding the ball

up importantly to pass to Hadley, who

effortlessly placed the ball in the back of

the net.

“IN THE LAST 15 - 20 MINUTES, WE GOT

INTO THE GAME AND WE WERE ACTUALLY

GIVING SOMETHING BACK TO THEM

[HASLINGDEN]. WHAT LET US DOWN

WAS US LACKING AT THE START AND NOT

MEETING THE LEVEL OF HASLINGDEN.”

RE-SIGN WITH PNE WOMEN:

Ellie Ditchfield

Hannah Cubbin

Nicola Hamilton

Zoe Sanderson-Davies

Beth O’Grady

Amelia Warburton

It wasn’t long into the second half

when Haslingden went back ahead

from a long range free-kick.

Haslingden extended their lead

further soon after with a chip

over the top of the ‘keeper.

PNE didn't give up and continued applying

pressure, which led to further chances,

but struggled to take them as Askam

had a powerful shot, which a Haslingden

defender took the full force of, in her

face, with play stopped temporarily.

With only ten minutes left of the game,

PNE started to get more of the ball as

their pressing became relentless.

In the last minute of the game, the hosts did

get a goal back from a corner as Hunt found

the net from close range, but there was to

be no late equaliser after that, with North

End dealt a first defeat of the campaign.

Co-manager David Rawcliffe said: “We

were a bit slow to start. We weren’t

on it for the first 15 to 20 minutes, they

bossed it and probably deservedly went

a goal ahead. That forced us into an

early formation change where we went

3-5-2 and we felt that suited us better.

“For the last 20 to 25 minutes of the

first half, I thought we were the much

better team and we managed to get

ourselves back into the game.

“We got the goal that we needed to

take us into half-time. I just felt that we

had a bit of momentum, but we needed

to come out strong. Unfortunately,

it just wasn’t there second half.

“We know they’re a difficult team to

play against, they finished second in

the league last season. We knew it

was going to be a tough game and

that we needed to be at our best.

Unfortunately, we just fell short of that

“Full credit to them, they came here

and did a great job, they have a

good, experienced side and we just

didn’t have enough today.”

PNECET IN

ZANZIBAR:

APRIL 2023!

Preston North End Community and Education Trust is

co-ordinating a trip for a team of more than 20 volunteers to

visit Zanzibar in April 2023 to leave a positive lasting legacy of

Preston North End on the African island.

The One And Only is catching up

with all the volunteers heading to

Zanzibar with PNECET throughout

the season – the latest being

Harrison Astin, a former staff

member of the Trust.

Harrison, formerly Community

Engagement Officer and DIVERT Youth

Officer with PNECET, will be supporting

the Trust with the sports coaching

aspect of the volunteering voyage.

"I FEEL IT WILL

ALSO OPEN MY

EYES TO THE

HARSH REALITY

OF POVERTY AND

HARDSHIP."


The one and only » 57

Why did you sign up to volunteer in

Zanzibar?

I felt it was a huge opportunity to help

those less fortunate, as well as being

part of a team where everyone wants to

help one another. I feel it will also open

my eyes to the harsh reality of poverty

and hardship.

What do you hope to gain from

volunteering as part of a team in

Zanzibar?

A new perspective on life, to show how

lucky we all are for the life we have, and

to show that we need to give back and

help those less fortunate than ourselves.

What are you looking forward to

most on the trip?

I’m looking forward to meeting the

children and hopefully helping them

to feel happy every day. I’m also very

much looking forward to working well

with everybody and going on the ocean

safari!

Why do you believe it is important

that PNECET facilitate trips like this

for volunteers to take part in?

I think it’s very important that the trust

facilitate trips such as this one as it

shows the continuous good work they’ve

been doing, as well as getting the club

badge out into the wider world.

What impact do you think we

will have on the individuals and

community whilst on our trip?

I think it will have a massive positive

impact on both the individuals and the

community. I think we will leave our

footprint behind, and the community will

be forever grateful, for the help and

time we will put in.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I’ve scored at Ewood Park six times.

Have you done anything similar to

this trip previously or any other

charitable work?

It will be the first time I’ve been involved

in a project like this. I can’t wait to get

going!

What would you say to fellow North

End fans who might be interested in

going on future trips?

I would say keep a lookout in April, to

see how the team gets on, and if you

think 'I’d love to be a part of that for

next time', get involved.

PNECET PROVIDE PLACES

TO SUPPORT 150 CHILDREN

A DAY DURING AUGUST GET

STUCK IN PROGRAMME

Preston North End Community and Education Trust [PNECET] provided places for

150 primary school children to benefit from the Get Stuck In holiday programme

throughout August.

Get Stuck In is a programme

delivered by the charity Spring

North, which aims to positively

impact children and young people and

their families through its provision

by challenging inequality and societal

disadvantages to enable them to meet

their full potential.

The programme, also delivered in

partnership with Lancashire County

Council, forms part of the Department

for Education’s Holiday Activities and

Food programme, which supports

primary school children who are eligible

for free school meals to maintain their

educational attainment over the summer

period.

Daily free lunches are provided as

part of the programme, which was

delivered by 11 providers in Preston

this summer – including PNECET – with

exciting educational and physical activity

sessions to ensure children had an

enjoyable experience.

PNECET’s delivery spanned across

three venues this summer – taking

place at Preston North End’s Deepdale

home, Ribbleton Avenue Infant’s School

and Tanterton Village Centre – with

an inclusive provision that catered to

children’s dietary requirements and

individual needs.

Children have had the opportunity to

participate in a wide variety of unique

and inspiring activities, including ground

tours of Deepdale, and Bollywood dance

classes with staff from Lancashire

County Council.

Following the summer’s provision,

PNECET Head of Health and Wellbeing

Jessica Riley said: “We’ve been delighted

to provide places to support 150 children

a day across our three venues on the

Get Stuck In programme this summer.

“Our provision, we believe, has provided

children with a memorable experience

during their summer break from school,

with activities that have crucially helped

them to stay healthy and active with

engaging activities throughout August.

“We hope that it has been a memorable

experience for all children involved this

summer.”

The next Get Stuck In programme is expected to

run in December, with more details about how

to access the provision to be shared nearer the

time. Email community@pne.com for more

information.

PNECET IN REVIEW...

THE LATEST FROM PNECET

The Trust is excited to be hosting those from the EFL Trust at this evening’s

game. A number of the Trust’s education programmes are delivered in

partnership with the EFL Trust, getting started for the first time or for a new

academic year over the last week.

The new Headstart mental health programme saw the EFL Trust awarded over

£300,000 in funding over a two-year period, being evenly distributed between

PNECET and three other Lancashire clubs, to support Year 6 children at five primary

schools with their mental health and transition from primary school to high school.

Meanwhile, there are now 22 learners enrolled on a PNECET foundation degree

or degree programme – all of which are delivered alongside the EFL Trust

and University of South Wales. Our second year degree learners were at the

Treforest Sports Park last week as part of their programme residential.

A separate post-16 education programme, our Preston Centre of Sporting

Excellence further education programme in partnership with Preston College,

also saw a return to delivery last week. Male and female students have the

opportunity to represent PNECET and Preston College in weekly fixtures against

other professional clubs as part of the programme in the EFL-Trust Community

and Education Football Alliance League.

One of our men’s teams enjoyed a perfect start to preparations with a 6-2

friendly win against Blackpool Community Trust.
