The Preston North End YouTube Top Ten Countdown Continues

20 May 2014

Number nine in our countdown of the top ten viewed videos on PNE’s official YouTube channel this season is the fitting tribute to Sir Tom Finney

The loss of Sir Tom in 2014 sent the city of Preston into mourning on the eve of PNE’s crunch match against Leyton Orient.

Before the game, this video of the Preston Plumber, containing footage of Sir Tom at the peak of his game terrorising defences and tributes from the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and Mark Lawrenson was played on the Deepdale big screen.

The video currently has over 7,000 views and counting as the loss of Sir Tom Finney touched not just Preston, but the footballing world.

Keep your eyes peeled for number eight in our countdown tomorrow.

To remind you of the kind of man and player Sir Tom Finney was, here is the video below.
