After Saturday’s incident at Sheffield Wednesday, PNE have held an internal inquiry and can confirm that they will not be appealing the red cards issued to Jermaine Beckford and Eoin Doyle.
On top of the punishment they will receive from the FA for their sendings off, they have also been fined by the club for their actions.
These fines will be used to repay all Preston North End supporters who attended the trip to Hillsborough the cost of their ticket money back.
Supporters who bought in advance, can claim their money back in person at the club’s ticket office by the same method of payment used to purchase the ticket from Tuesday 6th December.
Those supporters who paid on the day must provide their match ticket in order to receive a refund. For all refunds, the repayment will be made to the person who paid for the ticket.
The players today also issued a public apology to the management, their team-mates and the supporters for their actions.
Manager Simon Grayson said: “The fans who travelled to Sheffield Wednesday were let down by the actions of Jermaine Beckford and Eoin Doyle and it is only right that the fines imposed on the players are used to refund the cost of the ticket money for the fixture.
“It has been made very clear to the players and the squad as a whole that this behaviour is not acceptable by any employee of Preston North End and a swift and strong response was important, however, it has now been dealt with and the matter is closed.”
