Striker Lee Trundle shows off his voice as four PNE stars help switch on the Christmas lights.“It was good to get out and meet the supporters, they are the people that get behind you and if we are going to do anything this season then they are the people that are going to play a massive part in what we do.”
“It is only banter and it is for a good cause so I don’t mind, I sang Let It Snow so it was fun and the lads have been giving me some stick around the training ground.
“I sang and fortunately I ended up winning and from then the gaffer heard my voice and he put on the spot to sing a sing at the Christmas lights opening.
“The gaffer put me on the spot, we did a talent contest at the start of the season and everybody judged the competition.
The event, organised by Preston City Council and Real Radio, turned out to be a complete success and Trundle told PNE.Com he rose to the manager’s challenge.
However, it was the Lilywhites’ number ten who stole the show with his musical talents as Trundle stepped up to Westley’s challenge to sing Dean Martin’s famous song ‘Let It Snow.’~
Thousands of people turned out in force on Saturday night, as the four men from North End were joined alongside X Factor star Matt Cardle and tenor singer Russell Watson.
Only a couple of hours after the full time whistle blew at Deepdale in the 1-1 draw with Brentford, manager Graham Westley travelled down the road to the city centre with skipper John Mousinho, Shane-Cansdell-Sherriff and striker Trundle to switch on the Christmas lights.
