Young Fan Luke Spends A Day At PNE

31 March 2017

A few months ago, young North End fan Luke Carter spent a day on work experience at Preston North End.

Luke, aged eight, won a competition at the end of last season where disabled supporters were asked to send the club letters with why they would like to work for PNE for a day as part of our Level Playing Field day.
Young Luke, who suffers from Cerebal Palsy and is regular at Rainbow House, was the winner and joined us here at PNE for a day.

Luke was born 12 weeks early, weighing just 2lb 11oz, and after a difficult start to live, Luke was diagnosed with Cerebal Palsy. 

His condition affects most of his body, but mainly his legs, meaning he can't stand or walk independently so relies on his wheelchair/walking frame to get around. 

This hasn't stopped Luke from being a happy, outgoing little boy who brightened up the day of everyone at the club during his visit. 

During his day at North End, Luke spent time helping out in the ticket office, with the ground safety team and spent time with the media department.
While with the media department, Luke put his kit on to go around the stadium and have his photos taken like a new signing, before joining PNE PlayerHD for the day to commentate on his favourite game, the 2015 Play-Off final.
Luke, who turned up for his work experience in a shirt and a PNE tie,  showed off his skills by commentating on the memorable win at Wembley.
A big fan of PNE, Luke dreams of one day becoming a football commentator and had a taste of what to expect when here at PNE. 

You can watch his commentary below, it's certainly worth a watch until the end! can show your support for Luke on his fundraising page here:
