FROM THE NOTEBOOK...

THE GAFFER

Welcome back to Deepdale this afternoon for our final

game before the first international break.

Let me start by saying a big thank

you to all the fans who came out

on Tuesday evening to support the

team against Burnley. The atmosphere

was fantastic inside Deepdale.

We, of course, wanted to take three

points against our local rivals, but

unfortunately it wasn’t to be.

There were positives to take though, as

I thought we again showed our strong

and resolute defensive structure, and

we showed a new side to our game

with our out-of-possession football,

which is something we’ve been working

on since I came through the door.

Our attacking play has been good also,

but, as everyone knows, we’re just

looking to add that end product.

We’ve got a point already this week,

and you want to go and get more, but

we know there is a good team standing

in our way this afternoon who are

obviously flying high in the table.

Paul Heckingbottom’s done a fantastic job

since taking over and they’ve got some

top-quality players, so it should be all set

to be a good game of football, between two

sides looking to get on the front foot.

“I THOUGHT WE AGAIN

SHOWED OUR STRONG

AND RESOLUTE

DEFENSIVE STRUCTURE,

AND WE SHOWED A

NEW SIDE TO OUR

GAME WITH OUR

OUT-OF-POSSESSION

FOOTBALL.”

As I said, it’s the final game before

the first international break, so I’d

like to see us sign off with a good

performance and take a positive result,

and that will certainly be the plan.

Enjoy the game.

Ryan

RIO SPURR

CHARITY

CRICKET DAY

Scan to donate

At the beginning of September, current and former PNE players and staff went head to

head in aid of Rio Spurr in a 30-over cricket match.

Former player Tommy

Spurr's three-year-old

son, Rio, is battling a rare

form of cancer, and the family

and footballing community have

been raising funds for potential

further treatment in the future.

The likes of Lewis Leigh and

Ryan Ledson from the first

team took part in the cricket,

while former players including

Alan Kelly, Ian Bryson and Tom

Barkhuizen also featured on

what was a fantastic day.

THE MAIN

INTERVIEW

Ben

Whiteman

Choosing to leave his position as club captain at Doncaster Rovers in January

2021 certainly wasn’t an easy decision to make for Ben Whiteman.

However, there’s definitely no

regrets as far as he’s concerned,

given his quick accumulation of

appearances for Preston North End.

Since his arrival 18 months ago, he’s already

racked up over 80 games for North End.

In that time, there’s only been two league

matches which he hasn’t featured in.

He’s also been in the starting line-up in each

and every league game since Ryan Lowe became

manager, so the midfielder is thoroughly enjoying

the part he has to play at the moment.

Ben told The One And Only: “The manager’s

been excellent with me and he’s really put

his trust in me, so hopefully I’m repaying

that and we’ll see where it takes us.

“I think I’ve definitely progressed since

I first came through the door.

“I’ve really enjoyed it here so far. Everyone’s

been excellent with me throughout my

time here and long may it continue.”

Having worn the armband with Doncaster,

former Sheffield United man Ben knows what

it takes to take on the responsibility of being

“I THINK I’VE

DEFINITELY

PROGRESSED

SINCE I FIRST

CAME THROUGH

THE DOOR.”

captain, and he’s been given that honour on a

few occasions this Championship season.

While admitting it’s a special moment to wear the

armband, he feels he’s just as vocal without it.

“I think I go about my business the same,

whether I’ve got it or not,” he said.

“It’s always nice to take on the armband.

Obviously Browney [Alan Browne] is the

captain here and DJ [Daniel Johnson] is our

vice-captain, so if they’re not playing it seems

to be me at the minute, so that’s a really nice

feeling and one I’m obviously proud of.”


The one and only » 19


20 « The one and only

Despite it only feeling like a short while since Ben

did arrive, there has been plenty of change during

his time with the Lilywhites in terms of personnel.

He’s played under three different managers, and

there has been lots of activity in and out of the

dressing room – this past summer in particular.

“The club has been in a transitional period

since I’ve been here,” he added.

“When I first came, there was seven or

eight signings, and then this summer

there has been a lot of outgoings as well,

so the club’s in a transitional phase.

“When you look at the signings we have

brought in, they’ve been excellent since

they’ve come through the door.

“They’re all great characters as well,

which is important, and hopefully we can

continue to add to that in the future.

“I think if you look at training and in games, the

quality there has definitely gone up and that’s

what happens when you bring quality players in.”

The 26-year-old does, however, share the

frustration which has been vented publicly

by both the manager and players,regarding

the lack of goals so far this season.

Heading into today’s fixture, it’s three scored in

“I THINK PEOPLE

WHO COME AND

WATCH US WOULD

SAY WE’RE A GOOD

TEAM TO WATCH.”

the opening nine, however, there is still definite

confidence that – as long as the chances are

still coming – the goals will soon follow.

At the other end, there’s no need for questions to

be asked, though, given that seven clean sheets

have been kept and just two goals conceded.

“It’s been a strange start to the

season in a way,” continued Ben.

“Clean sheets are of course very positive, but

we’d obviously have liked to have found the net a

bit more. Overall, I don’t think it’s a bad start.

“I think if you look on the defensive side of

things we’re certainly on track, but obviously

attacking wise we’re looking for more goals.

“Again, the foundations are in place. I think

people who come and watch us would

say we’re a good team to watch.

Ben Whiteman

takes the armband.


The one and only » 21

“We tend to create a lot of chances and as

we’ve been saying, it’s now just about making

sure we’re finding the back of the net too.”

This afternoon sees North End come up

against Sheffield United, the club where

Ben started his career, signing his first

professional contract with the Blades in 2014.

The midfielder has previously openly said

how grateful he is to the Yorkshire club for

giving him his opening into the game, but this

afternoon his full focus will of course be on

taking the three points for North End.

Paul Heckingbottom brings his side to Deepdale

sat top of the table, after taking an impressive

20 points from their opening nine fixtures.

There will certainly be no fear in

the PNE ranks, though.

“In-house we’re definitely confident

going into all games we play, there’s no

question about that,” added Ben.

“Since I’ve been here, when the top teams have

come to Deepdale we’ve at least matched them,

and we’ll be trying to do that again in this one.

“Like with all games, the manager and his

coaching staff will set us up with a gameplan, and

at that point it’s up to us to carry that out.”

‘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

officials.

We know those who commit these

illegal acts do not represent the

majority of supporters.

#LoveFootball #ProtectTheGame


The one and only » 23

While the Blades have been the early pace

setters, behind them it’s very tight so far in the

early stages of the Championship season.

That’s giving most teams in the division

confidence that they can push towards

those top places – PNE included.

Ben said: “I think when you look at the teams

that have come down, obviously they’re

spending money, but they’re probably not

spending money the same as the likes

of Fulham and Bournemouth did.

“The league’s wide open at the moment,

even last season you look at the Play-Offs

with Luton and Huddersfield, they didn’t

spend a lot of money to get there.

“So I think for us, it gives us an ambition and

a goal to go and achieve that ourselves, and

hopefully we can do that this season.”

This afternoon’s game is the final one prior

to an international break, which will give

club sides a weekend without a fixture.

After a jam-packed opening seven weeks

to the season, it will be time for teams

to rest and get ready to go again once

players return from international duty.

“It’s all about recharging the batteries,” said Ben.

“Obviously the lads who have been called up will

go off, but for the lads who are staying here

it’s about putting the training minutes in and

then when you do get the time off you’ve got to

relax to a point and recharge the batteries.”

North End will return to action at the beginning

of October, when they head to Sunderland,

and then it’ll be all-go until 12th November,

when the Championship will break for a

month due to the World Cup in Qatar.

“It’s obviously going to feel very strange and

very different stopping mid-season, but we’ve

got to get on with it as a country as well.

“I don’t think it’s ever really happened,

but everyone’s in the same boat so

we’ll see how it all goes.”

As an Englishman, Ben of course enjoyed

last year’s run to the Final of the Euros, and

he’s hopeful of what Gareth Southgate’s men

could achieve in the upcoming competition.

Asked if he’s looking forward to it, he

responded: “I am and I’m not. The World Cup

is usually in the summer, when you’re off and

the sun’s out, and you look forward to it.

“It’s going to feel really strange being

in the winter, but hopefully the boys can

go and bring it home for us.”

» The lowdown «

Following a bitter end to their Play-Off run last season – losing 3-2 on penalties to

Nottingham Forest in the semi-finals – Sheffield United are firmly contesting the top of the

Championship table once again this term. Managed by Paul Heckingbottom, the Blades have

only lost one of their opening nine fixtures – a testament to the strength in their squad after

reinforcing in the transfer window. Amongst the new recruits is Bosnian centre back Anel

Ahmedhodžić, who stands at 6ft 3in tall and with all the makings of a modern, progressive,

passing force. For a defender, his attacking returns are already justifying the multi-million

pound fee that brought him to Bramall Lane from Sweden’s Malmö FF, having scored three

goals and assisted once. North End claimed a point against the Blades on both occasions

last season in thrilling 2-2 draws. Emil Riis was the man with last-minute equalisers on

both occasions, with the latter seeing PNE come from two goals down with ten men. This

memorable match-up will test the Lilywhites’ defence against the strike force of the Blades,

who have won by three and four-goal margins already this season.

Wes Foderingham

31-years-old

Goalkeeper

Previous clubs:

Fulham, Crystal Palace, Bromley (loan), Histon FC (loan),

Swindon Town, Rangers

Wes Foderingham has been key for United since

becoming their No.1 goalkeeper in November

2021, proving a reliable figure for the Blades,

but he doesn’t have happy memories of coming

up against PNE. In 2012, he was controversially

brought off by Swindon Town boss Paulo Di Canio

after 21 minutes, with the score at 2-0 in PNE’s

favour. The Fulham Academy graduate was then

beaten four times at Wembley in 2015 as North

End secured promotion to the Championship via

the Play-Offs. The former Rangers man then had

to pick the ball out of his net in the 89th minute

last season when Emil Riis earned a late point

for his side at Deepdale. This season, though,

Foderingham is already racking up the clean

sheets, and he even has an assist to his name.

John Egan

Centre Back

Previous clubs:

When boyhood Blade Billy Sharp is absent, John

Egan can always be relied upon as captain. With

a senior career beginning at Sunderland, the

defender had loan spells with Crystal Palace,

Sheffield United, Bradford City and Southend United

before being released by the Wearside club. In July

2014, Egan went on to join Gillingham permanently

– being named player of the year and in the

League One PFA team of the year. This attracted the

attention of Brentford who, in July 2016, made the

move for his services, and Egan swiftly became

captain of the club in his second season. Now at

Sheffield United, he was part of the Blades squad

who earned promotion to the Premier League and

impressed while there, and his role has been just

as integral since their relegation.

Sander Berge

24-years-old

Central Midfielder

Previous clubs:

Asker, Vålerenga, KRC Genk

One of the most exciting players in the

Championship, Iliman Ndiaye has made a blistering

start to the campaign. Signing his first professional

contract with Boreham Wood in 2017, he was soon

scouted by the Blades, who promptly took him

to their U21s in 2019. A short loan to Hyde United

followed, but Ndiaye was determined to make an

impact at Bramall Lane, coming on for his pro

debut in the Premier League against Leicester

City. Despite relegation, his first Sheffield United

start was highlighted with a brace, bursting onto

the scene in a 6-2 win against Peterborough

United. This new season has been no different,

having scored four and assisted one in the

opening nine games. He’s also now representing

his country, Senegal, on the international stage.

Surprisingly from a basketball-playing family,

Sander Berge started his career as a young

footballer for Asker Fotball – a Norwegian second

division team. He caught the eye of top flight side

Vålerenga in 2015, who then signed Berge. Two

years would follow before he again moved on, this

time signing for Belgian side KRC Genk. Making

his league debut in January 2017, Berge started

to become a frequent name on the teamsheet,

and he helped his side reach the Europa League

quarter finals that same year. In January 2020,

for what was a reported club record fee of over

£20m, the Blades took the midfielder to Bramall

Lane. Under Paul Heckingbottom this league

season, the Norwegian has scored three goals

and assisted twice in the opening eight games.

Our first meeting with the Blades

came in a tumultuous season for the

season, where the side would end up

14th of 16 top flight teams – having to

defeat Notts County in what would be

25th September 1954

Many of North End’s ‘best’ results

against teams came in the mid-1950s

and our most significant result against

United came during the heyday of

Finney and co.

Having already defeated Manchester

City 5-0, Cardiff City 5-2 and 7-1, as

well as wins against Chelsea and

Arsenal, they were to put on another

five-star performance in front of over

23,000 at Deepdale.

This Roses battle was a one-sided

affair, with the aforementioned Finney

grabbing a brace, Bobby Foster getting

one and Dennis Hatsell scoring two.

It was a season where there were

goals galore, PNE scoring 83, despite

a mid-table 14th placed finish, with

further big wins against Sheffield

Wednesday (6-0), Huddersfield Town

(4-0) and Charlton Athletic (4-0). The

Blades finished the season one place

and one point above North End in 13th

spot in the first division.

PNE line-up: G Thompson, Cunningham,

Walton, Docherty, Marston, Forbes, Finney,

Foster, Hatsell, Baird, Morrison.

Alan Browne's second half winner kept

alive North End's Championship Play-Off

hopes, but ended those of Sheffield United.

Browne poked home the winner,

pouncing when Blades goalkeeper Jamal

Blackman parried Josh Harrop's shot.

The win brought PNE within two points of

Derby County in the final Play-Off spot.

Both sides needed a win to maintain

their Play-Off chances, as well as other

results to go their way, but there were

few chances in the first half.

The game opened up after the break

and, following Browne's goal, PNE

substitute Tom Clarke touched Tom

Barkhuizen's header into the net - but

from an offside position.

United piled forward for an equaliser

as David Brooks and Mark Duffy came

close, but the visitors held on for only

their second win at Bramall Lane in

their last 19 visits.

PNE line-up: Rudd, Fisher, Huntington,

Davies, Cunningham, Pearson, Johnson

Central Midfielder

Previous clubs:

Manchester United, Carlisle United (loan),

Although born in England, and representing

the country at U17 level, Oli Norwood has since

represented Northern Ireland from U19 all the

way up to the senior team. He was spotted by

Manchester United scouts at the age of six,

joining the club at seven, before progressing

from the Academy to the reserve team by

2012. There were loan spells at Carlisle United,

Scunthorpe United and Coventry City during

his time with the Red Devils, but Norwood was

desperately searching for a firm place to play

first team football. Because of this, the midfielder

moved to Huddersfield Town and then Reading

up until 2016 on permanent deals. It was at his

next clubs though where some of his greatest

success came. With Brighton & Hove Albion,

Fulham and Sheffield United, Norwood achieved

three consecutive promotions to the Premier

League between 2017 and 2019. This incredible

feat marked the beginning of his time with

the Blades, who purchased him permanently

in January 2019 and have kept their man for

over 170 appearances in total. Selected in the

2018/19 Championship Team of the Season,

Norwood knows what this division is all

about and will stop at nothing to achieve

success with Sheffield United once more.

Previous clubs:

Hibernian, Sheffield United (interim)

After making over 400 senior appearances as a

defender, with clubs such as Darlington, Bradford

City, Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley, Paul

Heckingbottom retired so he could begin training

as a coach. He was granted a position with

Barnsley’s development squad and, following a

successful interim period in which the Tykes won

promotion and the EFL Trophy, he was appointed

permanent manager in 2016. Heckingbottom would

move to Leeds United in February 2018 but could

only finish 13th in the 2017/18 Championship league

table. He was sacked four months later in June,

to be succeeded by Marcelo Bielsa. Hibernian

were the next club to appoint Heckingbottom as

manager in February 2019, and he soon produced

results. The club went on an unbeaten league run,

he won his first Edinburgh derby and finished in

a respectable fifth position. However, Hibs would

win just one of their first 11 league matches in

the 2019/20 season, and he would be sacked

in November. Now the permanent manager of

Sheffield United, after a role in the U23s and as

an interim, Heckingbottom narrowly missed out

on the Championship Play-Off Final last season –

losing in the semi-final on penalties to Nottingham

Forest. He signed a new contract in November

2021 and is set to stay in charge until June 2026.

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.

JOHN GILCHRIST

I

f

ever a man threw away the

chance of having an excellent

footballing career it was

Gilchrist. He was catching the eye

in Glasgow back in 1917, playing

locally for a junior team called St

Anthony’s. Glasgow Celtic knew a

good promising footballer when they

saw one and this talented youth was

snapped up, and by May 1920 he was

playing in front of a 50,000 crowd

at Hampden Park for Celtic in the

Glasgow Charity Cup Final. Even then

the local scribe wrote 'Gilchrist is

inclined to lose his temper'.

As a first team player for Celtic he

soon hit the headlines, the Sunday Post

saying that: “His judgement is superb

for so young a player. He has every

promise of turning out to be one of

Scotland’s half backs this season. He

seldom wastes a ball and his style of

play has rarely been seen in first class

football this season”.

Within a fortnight he had represented

the Scottish League at Ibrox Park and,

in April 1922, he won his first Scottish

international cap versus England at

Villa Park. Then it all seemed to go

sour. His attitude changed, especially

in training, one big fault being a lack of

self-control and, in hindsight, probably

too big-headed. Middlesbrough were

reported to be chasing him in May

1922, the month he was sent off playing

for Celtic in a friendly in Prague.

Anyway, after 134 appearances for the

Celts, on 24th January 1923, the club

caused a sensation in Glasgow as they

suspended their Scottish international

sine die due to ‘misconduct’. Within

a few hours Preston North End had

got wind of this and the management

travelled up to Glasgow to try and sign

him. Gilchrist had to apologise to the

Celtic chairman before his ban could

be lifted, giving North End the chance

to buy him for a near club record fee

of £4,500. To their dismay, North End

soon found out his true character. Fair

enough, he could spot a defencesplitting

pass and his interception play

could be masterful, and his ability was

never in question. Sadly, though, his

attitude to training was not!

He and fellow Scotsman, Sandy Laird,

had warnings from the management,

but to no avail. Gilchrist was dropped

and asked for a transfer. In an

interview with a Scottish newspaper

he said that he did not want to play

second fiddle to anyone. In November

1923 he was offered back to Celtic at

half the price they had sold him for, but

they refused! Come January 1924 he

and Laird were suspended and sacked

for a breach of training regulations

and alleged misconduct. Gilchrist left

North End to play for Carlisle United

before signing for Third Lanark for

a knockdown price of just £650, a

huge financial loss to the club. He

ended what could have been an oh so

different career in America, playing

for teams such as Bethlehem Steel

and Chicago Bricklayers. I found some

new information on him after putting

this piece together: a month before he

was sacked at Deepdale he fathered

twins in Preston and within a few days

both had sadly died. This tragic event

would have undoubtedly knocked him

over the edge and one wonders if the

club knew about this tragedy before

sacking him.

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. All records are up to the end of last season.

Red cards are one of my

pet favourite subjects,

amongst my many years of

researching North End’s history,

especially recently, having been

sourcing the match reports of all

games played by the Lilywhites.

It gets quite exciting when you find one

from way back – well, it does for me.

This is not yet a complete list though,

as I continually find others that I have

missed, but suffice to say, so far, in

league and cup up to the end of last

season, PNE have had 159 instances

of a player being sent off, and at least

three of the managers or assistant

managers. Was discipline worse in

the old days, or is it worse today?

No doubt about that one, as sendings

off have grown considerably as the

years have gone by. To be fair, the

rule changes have helped with that,

as lovers of Chopper Harris, Norman

Hunter and many others will testify.

What was acceptable in days gone by

is not acceptable in today’s game.

The one I have as the earliest on

my compiled list is a chap called

Billy Stewart. He was sent off for

deliberately kicking an opponent,

against Burnley in September 1891, but

later it was reported that the referee,

a Mr Lewis, in his report to the FA,

had said that Stewart 'ordinarily, was

an inoffensive player, and the fact his

sending off and being reported, would

be simple punishment for his offence'.

From that day on, until the 1982/83

season, there were just 19 further

incidents where a North Ender was

sent off, including Dickie Bond being

the first to go in an FA Cup tie in 1909.

When North End were in their prime

during the 1950s, not one player was

given his marching orders, and only

two, Tony Singleton and Jim McNab,

transgressed in the ‘60s. The ‘70s also

saw us on our best behaviour, apart

from one player who became the first

to be sent off twice. Dave Connor went

off at Millwall in 1973 and John Blackley

left early at Notts County in 1979. In

between those two, a certain Gary

Williams took on ‘legendary’ status

by being sent off at Colchester and

Gillingham in April 1976, and later that

year in October 1976. Naughty boy!

It all changed for the club in the

1980s, when 23 players went early

between 1981 and 1989, and amongst

them we lost our first goalkeeper


Alan Browne given his marching orders against Middlesbrough in March 2021.

Peter Litchfield William Stewart

to a dismissal. It was under Gordon

Lee’s managerial reign, and PNE

were facing the real possibility of

relegation, so nerves were jangling. It

came in the 86th minute in a game at

Newport County, with the home side

2-0 up and also in relegation trouble.

County’s hot property forward, John

Aldridge was through on goal and

tried to go round Peter Litchfield,

but the ‘keeper brought the striker

down. It was deemed a professional

foul, so Litchfield had to go. Graham

Bell was then given the unenvious

task of trying to save Tommy Tynan’s

penalty; he didn’t and we lost 3-0.

The good news was, we did finally

stave off relegation that season.

Fans often complain about home bias

when visiting away grounds with

North End. The findings here certainly

bear out the home bias with regard

to sendings off. Of the 159 dismissals,

only 46 have been at home whilst 113

have seen PNE players sent off in away

games. If you are wondering who has

been sent off the most times for North

End, then there are three that are all

on four times. Ryan Kidd was the first

to be sent off three times, and also

the first to be sent off four times. He

was joined by Ben Pearson whilst he

was with us (good job I haven’t kept

a record of yellow cards!), and there

is still one player who joins those

two, and also has a chance, hopefully

not, of taking the record. His name?

Alan Browne. Stay out of trouble

Alan, it’s a record you won’t want.

Four other players have three to their

credit, and lots have had two. And one

last piece of trivia on this subject, do

you remember a loanee from Chelsea

we had called Neil Clement? He was

sent off on his debut for North End

at Colchester in April 1999. So far, he

is the only player to do that whilst

here at Deepdale. Let us hope we

don’t add many names to this roll of

dishonour throughout 2022/23.

ACADEMY MATCH REPORT

PRESTON NORTH END U19s 1

CARLISLE UNITED U19s 2

Preston North End U19s fell to

their first defeat of the season

with a 2-1 loss to Carlisle United

at Springfields on the last weekend

in August.

The visitors were 2-0 up inside 20

minutes with goals from Nic Bollado

and Kai Nugent before an own goal

nine minutes before half-time restored

some hope for the Lilywhites.

However, they were unable to claw

their way back into the match despite

a 41st-minute red card for Carlisle

defender Alex Potts.

North End fought it out with the

Cumbrian outfit for the EFL Youth

Alliance title last season, each winning

a game apiece and as a result, they

won’t be too alarmed by a defeat to

evidently impressive opposition.

PNE had the earliest chance when Rio

Pemberton’s driven cross found Mikey

O’Neill, but his shot was off-target.

On 15 minutes, United took the lead as

they caught the hosts out on the break

and Bollado kept his cool, jinked past

the final defender’s lunge and slotted a

strike under Davis.

And just four minutes later it was 2-0,

as a loose North End pass was cut out

and Nugent coolly finished.

The Lilywhites were struggling to get

into their groove but they were gifted

a route back into the match in the 36th

minute when Rio Pemberton’s freekick

was unintentionally bundled into

his own net by Carlisle’s Bollado.

Five minutes later, things went from

bad to worse for the Blues as they

were reduced to ten men after Potts

picked up a second yellow for a nasty

tackle on Khan.

The visitors thought they had all but

sealed the win on the hour mark when

a deflected free-kick was saved by

Davis and the rebound converted, but

the goalscorer was offside and the

score remained 2-1.

PNE were starting to cause Carlisle

problems in the closing stages on 78

minutes, substitute Felipe Rodriguez-

Gentile took a shot from the edge of

the area which flew over the bar and a

moment later, Mawene almost caught

the 'keeper out at the near post with a

shot from a tight angle.

At the other end, Davis was forced into

two decent saves in quick succession

as Carlisle continued to look dangerous

on the break.

O’Neill was gifted another opportunity

immediately afterwards, wriggling free

in the area, but once more his shot

was off-target and mere seconds from

the end, he had his best chance of the

match when he was picked out with a

cross-field ball and met it with a sweet

volley that struck the base of the post.

PNE line-up: Davis, Taylor, Khan, Amaral,

Nevin (c), Wallbank, Pemberton (Eccleston,

71), Kamara (Rodriguez-Gentile, 62), O’Neill,

Mawene (McGhee, 86), Nelson. Subs not

used: Nicholson, Wilkinson.

ACADEMY INTERVIEW

O’NEILL RETURNS TO U19S

IN CARLISLE DEFEAT

Mikey O’Neill made his first competitive appearance in a month, turning

out for Preston North End U19s in a 2-1 loss to Carlisle United.

The 18-year-old has been flirting

with the senior side for the

past three months, making four

appearances off the bench for Ryan

Lowe’s side in that time, and training at

Euxton with the first team, as well as

travelling to many of the matches.

He made his first start for the U19s at

Springfields as the side fell to their first

defeat of the season and only their second

in the league for the entirety of 2022.

“We’re disappointed,” said O’Neill.

“It was two poor goals to concede, we

didn’t create many chances, but we’ve got

to take it for what it is.”

He was critical of his own performance

particularly and believed he should have

got his name on the scoresheet.

He said: “I made sloppy mistakes.

Obviously, I haven’t played in a month,

which isn’t an excuse, but I should have

got a goal and I should have been better.”

“THE CLUB WANT

ME AS A STRIKER

BECAUSE THEY

KNOW I CAN

SCORE GOALS.”

O’Neill admitted he is still adjusting to the

centre forward role he has been deployed

in, having come through the ranks as an

attacking midfielder.

“The club want me as a striker because

they know I can score goals,” he said.

“It is new, obviously, but, I’ve got to get

used to it and hopefully once I’ve got used

to it I can perform as well as I have when

playing deeper, like I have done all these

years.”

DEVELOPMENT

TEAM START

SEASON ON FIRE

Preston North End Women’s development team couldn’t have wished for a better start to

their season after defeating Ladybridge Ladies 8-0 in their first league game a fortnight ago.

Millie Rushforth and Grace

Doughty scored a hat-trick

and brace, respectively, while

there were further strikes from Rose

Stuttard, Ellie Ditchfield and Abbie

Jones.

The game was played in a ten-versusten

format, at the opposition’s request,

with nine of the ten starters lining-up

for PNE Women having progressed from

last season’s U16 set-up.

They are now involved in a maiden

campaign in the Lancashire FA Women’s

County League Championship for PNE

Women.

The club did not have a development

team last season, and its existence this

term is designed to encourage those

girls making the progression to remain

involved in adult football and potentially

progress to the women’s first team.

Also progressing with the crop of last

season’s U16s to the development team

is Sean Parkinson, taking on the mantle

of development team manager, alongside

his assistant Pete Sidebottom.

Sean explained it has been a stop-start

opening period of the campaign for the

side, with only one pre-season game

and one league game played following

a postponement last weekend, but one

with plenty of encouragement.

“IT WILL BE A VERY DIFFICULT TEST FOR

US. WE PLAYED THEM AWAY IN PRE-

SEASON AND DREW 4-4, THEY ARE A VERY

GOOD SIDE WHO ARE QUICK AND AGILE,

BUT WE MUST BE UP FOR THE GAME

AND PLAY TO OUR STRENGTHS. IT’S AN

HONOUR TO BE IN THE FA CUP AND WE’RE

LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.”

Sean said: “The first five minutes, it was

very unorganised shape-wise, but after

that we got into it and scored in the

tenth minute, which settled us down and

we started playing really good football.

“It was very pleasing in possession, we

were getting into the final third really

well, we were decisive when we got

there. Millie scored a really good freekick;

she does practice free-kicks and

penalties and she scored one of each.

“The second half they started to tire a

bit. We had three subs by then and they

really faded. We kept the ball really well.

Keely [Woolveridge] at centre half was

really good, for the little threat they

offered, she just dealt with it all.”

While there was continuity for those

girls progressing from last year’s youth

set-up, a new challenge for them this

term will be facing adult opponents.

Sean continued: “The whole starting

line-up, except Abbie Jones who is 18,

were from last year. We did see a bit

more game savviness. We had Rose

Stuttard and Ellie Ditchfield with us and

they do have that savviness, so were

helping us well in that regard.

“They [Rose and Ellie] have the

experience of playing against more

competitive adults, especially Rose,

who loves that side of the game and the

physicality of the game.

“We still have a long way to go with that,

but we were playing against adults, so it

was a different kind of mindset.”

Sean and assistant Pete will be working

alongside first team management duo,

David Rawcliffe and Nigel Greenwood,

to support the progression of

development team players into

the first team.

“League position isn’t our number one

priority. It’s a case of seeing what

happens, it’s very unknown at the

moment. We want to see that the girls

can compete against adults first of all.

I think if we can get around mid-table,

that would be decent for our first

season.”

PNECET IN

ZANZIBAR:

APRIL 2023!

Preston North End Community and Education Trust is coordinating

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 » 57

The One And Only is catching up

with all the volunteers heading to

Zanzibar with PNECET throughout

the season – the latest being Kyle

Miller.

Kyle will be supporting the Trust with

the construction and renovation aspect

of the trip.

Why did you sign up to volunteer in

Zanzibar?

I enjoy visiting other countries and

interacting with people from different

cultures. Zanzibar not only offers

the opportunity to do these things,

but in the process, I hope to be able

to assist the local population to help

themselves.

What do you hope to gain from

volunteering as part of a team in

Zanzibar?

I hope to gain a little understanding of

the way of life of the people of Zanzibar

and maybe pick up a little Swahili. A

sense of achievement would be a bonus.

What are you looking forward to

most on the trip?

I’m looking forward to getting my hands

dirty, working with the locals should be

fun. The ocean safari looks spectacular!

The complete experience of visiting

and working in a place as different as

Zanzibar should provide enough of a

buzz.

Why do you believe it is important

that PNECET facilitate trips like this

for volunteers to take part in?

Trips like this allow PNECET to influence

people’s lives outside the usual sphere

of contact and shows the organisation

in a positive light by assisting others

through the work of the volunteers.

What impact do you think we

will have on the individuals and

community whilst on our trip?

Both volunteers and the community

involved should benefit from the

experience. The volunteers will learn

about the way of life of the people of

Zanzibar and the local community will

learn about British culture and hopefully

benefit from the work done by the

volunteers.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I attained a black belt in taekwondo at

the age of 47.

Have you done anything similar to

this trip previously or any other

charitable work?

My wife and I spent a couple of weeks

in rural Thailand. We lived with locals in

Thai villages, helping the community with

practical projects associated with the

development of tourism in those areas.

What would you say to fellow North

End fans who might be interested in

going on future trips?

What an opportunity to get involved with

something worthwhile, exciting and

educational. Such an opportunity doesn’t

come around often; grab it with both

hands!

RUGBY LEAGUE

PROVISION DEVELOPING

AHEAD OF SHOWPIECE

TOURNAMENT

Preston North End Community and Education Trust [PNECET] is working alongside

Preston City Council, the Rugby Football League and the University of Central

Lancashire to develop participation and interest in rugby league ahead of next month’s

Rugby League World Cup.

Ryan Allen has been in post as

Rugby League Development

Officer since September 2020

to lead on all aspects of rugby league

delivery, which over the past two

years has seen the Trust reach new

primary schools and deliver across

numerous community settings.

The power and appeal of the football

club has continued to be utilised during

those activities, with participants

involved having the opportunity to win

PNE themed prizes, while occasionally

receiving invites to watch fixtures at

Deepdale.

The showpiece Rugby League World

Cup tournament had been scheduled

for last autumn, but will now be played

from this October following last year’s

postponement due to the pandemic,

during which time the Trust will lead on

the delivery of several grassroots rugby

league activities in Preston.

The Wales national team will be based at

UCLan Sports Arena for training during

the tournament, which is being played

at several venues across the north of

England.

As part of the development of the sport

in Preston, the Trust has supported the

formation of a new rugby league club

in the city, the Preston and South Ribble

Rabbitohs, which first came to the fore

earlier this year and has now seen an

U13 team in action.

The U13 side recently played their

first match – against the Accrington

Wildcats, also formed as part of the

development work of Wigan Warriors’

Community Foundation ahead of the

World Cup – and they even had the

opportunity to play in PNE kit.

Reflecting on that first game, Ryan Allen

said: “The whole day was a huge success

from start to finish.

“We couldn’t think of a better way

to begin our journey than by linking

up with a fellow Lancashire team in

Accrington Wildcats, and together we

can hope to inspire more people to play

rugby league in the future as the World

Cup gets closer.”

PNECET IN REVIEW...

THE LATEST FROM PNECET

Preston North End Community

and Education Trust last week

celebrated the graduation of 103

young people who completed its

summer National Citizen Service

programme.

The Trust co-ordinated two waves

of the programme, which sees

young people challenged to move outside of their comfort zone by

taking part in adventurous outdoor activities, staying on a short residential

to develop their independence, and help them develop further life skills by

planning and implementing a social action project.

Young people’s achievements were celebrated with last week’s graduation

in the Invincibles Lounge at Deepdale, now providing them with a valuable

addition to their CV, with the Trust co-ordinating its next NCS programme in

October.

Meanwhile, the Trust is excited to welcome participants from its recently

concluded Reclaim The Game programme to today’s game. Reclaim The

Game is an eight-week intervention to support men aged 18 to 44 to prevent

gambling from getting the better of them.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK!

“I’VE BEEN WORKING

AT KENNINGTON FOR 13

YEARS AND HAVE BEEN

LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE

THE SUPPORT OF PNE

FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

BEING ABLE TO HAVE

THE ACCESS TO PNE HAS

BEEN FANTASTIC, IT HAS

ENABLED ME TO WORK

WITHIN SMALL GROUPS

AND BOUNCE IDEAS OFF
