Callum Robinson became the 112th man to join the Lilywhites on a loan deal when he arrived from Aston Villa last month.
Interviews with David Jones, Darren Byfield, Declan Rudd, Ritchie de Laet, Gareth Ainsworth are all part of this weekend’s issue, along with a feature interview with the latest man to sign on, joining on a youth loan from the Villains.
In his interview Callum Robinson explains how much he is enjoying his time at Deepdale thus far: ““I’ve spoken to Danny Johnson who’s at Chesterfield now, and I’m good friends with Jack Grealish who did [went out on loan] last season.
“When I spoke to Jack he said he learnt so much in the 37 games he was at Notts County for, on and off the pitch.
“It’s not kids football anymore, you’re playing with men and you need to get results, so yes I’ve spoken to a few of the players and they are saying I’ll enjoy it and told me to make sure I get every bit of experience from it.
“It will be good to sample different types of stadiums as well. Playing at grounds like Deepdale and the Ricoh Arena is really good, but then you get some grounds that aren’t the best, that’s what I have to learn and deal with, and hopefully I deal with it well.
“I spoke to a few of the lads here and they said that I had come to a really big club and obviously I’m grateful for that.
“When I went to the ground I was shocked myself because it’s a really nice ground as well as the training ground, but I have come to a really good club and hopefully I can help the club as well as myself.”
On top of those features we also have interviews with Paul Morgan, Warren Joyce, David Buchanan and an exclusive with the Colchester manager Tony Humes.
