New Half-Time Game Introduced For 2015/16 Season

6 August 2015

Preston North End are introducing a new half-time game at Deepdale for the Club's return to the Championship.

The new game will be called 'Blast It Like Beckford' and challenges supporters to replicate Jermaine Beckford's memorable strike in the Play-Off semi-final against Chesterfield at Deepdale. 

Fans will need to simulate the nutmeg before hitting the ball in one strike, over Deepdale Duck who will be in the 18-yard-box, and into the back of the net. 

Anyone who is successful will get a signed 'Blast It Like Beckford' t-shirt, and each winner of the course of the season will be invited for a special surprise later in the season. 

You get just one attempt at the task so get practicing ahead of this weekend's Championship opener at Deepdale against Middlesbrough.

This weekend will be the first time the game is played, and if you want to take part it's free of charge and easy to enter. 

To enter you simply need to register your interest on Twitter by tweeting @pnecommunity using the hashtag #PNEBlast, by emailing the Community team at or by calling 01772 693309.
