Sheffield United 2-1 Preston North End
February 20, 2012

A timely brace from Ched Evans saw Sheffield United come from behind to beat Preston, climbing above their steel city rivals and into 2nd place. North End took the lead shortly after Thorsten Stuckmann saved a tame Evans penalty, but the Welsh striker restored parity just before the break and grabbed the winning goal 10 minutes from time.



Preston North End 1-0 Hartlepool United
February 18, 2012

Danny Mayor’s wondergoal gave Graham Westley his first win as PNE boss in what was an otherwise uninspired performance from the Lilywhites. The scintillating strike was one of only two shots that North End managed to hit the target with all game, but it was enough to seal the points and end Hartlepool’s five game unbeaten run.


PNE dip into loan market
November 8, 2011

Preston North End manager Phil Brown has stated that his team looks “a little bit stronger” after a trio of loan players arrived at Deepdale this week. Jonathan Forte joins Southampton team-mate Sam Hoskins in the one-month loan move as Brown looks to bolster the strikeforce, which he believes has been “lost” through inury in recent weeks. Iain Turner’s injury means that German shot stopper Thorsten Stuckmann also makes the switch from Alemannia Aachen.

Iain Hume features in Canada’s 3-0 win over Puerto Rico
September 8, 2011

Preston North End striker Iain Hume may speak with a recognisably Scottish twang, but like a plethora of others in the modern game, when it comes to International duty, he doesn’t actually represent the country in which he was born. At one year old, Hume was probably still learning to walk and talk when his parents decided to leave Edinburgh and relocate to Ontario, Canada, but he didn’t ditch haggis for hockey sticks; Hume stayed true to his British roots and developed his football skills. As a Canadian citizen, Hume was eligible to join the international squad and received his first call up in February 2003 when he was playing for Dave Watson’s Tranmere Rovers.
