History

Preston North End are a professional football club based in Preston, Lancashire. The first ever winners of the Football League, the club started the 2016/2017 season in the English second tier, the Championship.

The history of Preston North End begins in 1863. Preston North End were formed and started life as a cricket club, playing a number of matches at the Marsh before moving to Moor Park.In 1877, the club switched from cricket to rugby union and then in 1880, the club decided to start a football team.

Preston North End were one of the most successful football teams at the start of the professional football era. In 1887, Preston North End played in the FA Cup, and beat Hyde 26-0, a record that still stands to this day.

In the 1888/1889 season, Preston North End became the first club to win the Football League. They also won the FA Cup, without conceding a goal in any FA Cup match that season, making Preston North End the first ‘double’ winners. Preston were also unbeaten for the entire league season, the only club in the history of English football to remain unbeaten in the league and FA Cup for the entire season.

Preston North End won consecutive top flight titles, but their league success of 1889/1890 would be the last top tier title the club has won to date.

Three successive second place finishes followed, including in the first season of the Football League First Division, but their success began to wane and in the 1900/1901 season Preston North End were relegated.

In the 1903/1904 season, the club regained its First Division status. However, the 1912 season was the first of four consecutive seasons that saw a relegation, a promotion, a relegation and another promotion.

The Football League calendar was postponed for the duration of the First World War, and when football resumed, Preston North End continued to struggle in the First Division. The club reached another FA Cup Final, but were beaten and three seasons later, Preston North End were back in the Second Division.

The 1925/1926 season was the first of nine consecutive seasons in the second tier of English football. In the 1933/1934 season, a runner up place was enough to see Preston North End back in the top flight.

The end of the 1930’s was a good time for Preston. In the 1937/1938 season, the club finished third in the First Division and won the FA Cup, a year after losing in the final once again.

As with the First World War, the Football League schedule was suspended until after the completion of World War Two. In 1946, the Football League resumed.

1946 was a special year for Preston North End. The most famous player in the history of Preston North End, Tom Finney made his debut for the club. Finney played for Preston North End until 1960, helping the club earn two runner up First Division places and reach another FA Cup Final.

The season after Finney retired, Preston were relegated to the Second Division one again. The 1960/1961 season is the last time Preston North End played top flight football to date.

Preston North End’s slide down the English divisions continued when they were relegated to the Third Division in the 1969/1970 season. They did however earn immediate promotion back to the Second Division.

Even after that promotion, the club’s general direction was down. Nobby Stiles and Bobby Charlton amongst others took on the Preston North End manager job, but Preston’s continued to yo-yo in and out of the English divisions. In the 1984/1985 season, Preston were relegated to the Fourth Division.

Things got worse for Preston North End when they finished second from bottom of the Fourth Division table. They could have lost their Football League place altogether, but were re-elected to stay in the Football League.

A season later and Preston North End were promoted. John McGrath had taken over as manager, but he couldn’t lead his side back into the Second Division. In 1992, John Beck was given the manager’s job, but couldn’t stop his new side from relegation back to the Fourth Division.

The following season, Preston North End reached the play-offs, but were beaten in the final. This led to the departure of John Beck, and Gary Peters took over. 

In time for the 1992/1993 season, the Premier League was introduced. This resulted in name changes for the Football League divisions and so the Second Division became Division One, the Third Division Division Two, and the Fourth Division, Division Three.

Peters led his side to the Division Three title in his first season in charge. However, in 1998 Peters quit the role and David Moyes, a Preston North End player, took on the manager’s role.

Moyes would go on to be one of the club’s longest serving managers. In the 1999/2000 season, Moyes led Preston North End to the Division Two title. They almost earned successive promotions, but their hopes of Premier League football were dashed by Bolton Wanderers who beat them in the Division One play-off final.

David Moyes left the club to take the manager’s job at Premier League side Everton, and Billy Davies took over. In a side full of good players, including David Nugent who became the first Preston North End player to win an England international cap since 1958, the club pushed hard for promotion. However, Billy Davies twice couldn’t get his side promoted through the play-offs, and neither could Alan Irvine when he took over the role.

In the 2010/2011 season, amidst a series of managerial changes, the club were relegated to the third tier, now called League One. 

Simon Grayson was appointed manager in 2013. In the 2013/2014 season, Grayson led his club to the League One play-offs. However, Rotherham defeated Preston in the semi final, consigning Preston North End to another season in League One.

The following season, Preston North End finally broke the spell of nine play-off losses by beating Swindon Town in the play-off final. The club finally were promoted to the Championship.

Crest

The first Preston North End football badge featured three red roses of Lancashire above an image of a paschal lamb. The lamb belongs to St. Wilfrid, the Patron Saint of Preston. Under the lamb are the initials PP, representing the latin motto Princep Pacis meaning Prince of Peace.

The 1996 Preston North End badge featured the lamb encased in a blue shield shape, with the team name also featuring in the shield.

A new Preston North End football crest was introduced in 1998. This included the same features as the 1996 badge, but the shield was removed and the colours slightly altered.

The Preston North End crest was updated in 2010. Still featuring the image of the lamb and the team name, the images were set in a square shield.

A special 125 year anniversary badge was used in the 2013/2014 season. The shape of the shield became a more traditional shape, above that lay a banner with the team name displayed and below another banner stating ‘Invincibles 125 years’. The initials PP were reintroduced for this Preston North End commemorative badge.

The club’s current badge is a slightly updated version of the anniversary badge. The colours have been slightly altered and the bottom banner now states ‘established 1880’.

Colours

The Preston North End colours are traditionally white shirts, blue shorts and blue socks. These Preston North End kit colours have been used since 1888, with the shorts and socks colours alternating between blue and white and a combination of the two.

When Preston North End first became a football club, the team wore blue and white striped shirts with white shorts and dark blue socks. In the 1884 season, this kit was changed to half red half white shirts, worn with blue shorts and blue socks. The red and white continued in the 1886/1887 season, but the shirt featured red and white stripes rather than a half and half design.

The 2016/2017 Preston North End kit features a white shirt with blue trim, blue shorts and blue and white hooped socks.

Preston North End Stadium

The Preston North End stadium name is Deepdale. Deepdale was used by the club when it was a cricket and rugby union side after moving from Moor Park.

The Preston North End stadium capacity currently stands at 23,404. The stadium was completely renovated between the years of 1996 and 2009.

The Preston North End stadium layout features the Sir Tom Finney Stand, the Alan Kelly Town End, the Invincibles Pavilion and the Bill Shankly Kop.

The club’s record defeat came against arch rivals Blackpool. Blackpool beat Preston 7-0 in the Football League First Division in 1948.
