Trust Nominated For Two Awards At NWFA

2 October 2018

The Preston North End Community and Education Trust has been nominated for two awards at this year's North West Football Awards.

For the third year in a row, the Trust will be in contention for the Community Club of the Year all other leagues category - where they are up against Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, Bolton Wanderers Community Trust, Tranmere Rovers and Wigan Athletic Community Trust.

The nomination, which takes into account the Trust's work in 2017/18 comes after several notable achievements last year - from the growth and success of the women's Walking Football programme to representing PNE on an International scale in Portugal with students touring the country as part of the education programme. 

The Awards also plays host to the Community Initiative of the Year where North End are in the running for its work in helping to unearth the Dick, Kerr Ladies Story.

Alongside the football club, the Community Trust played its part in ensuring the story of the Dick, Kerr Ladies was recognised on a National scale, with their inspiring story - which began in Preston now taking pride of place at Deepdale with a six metre monument in tribute to one of the earliest women's football teams in England. 

The awards will take place on Monday 12th November at the Point, Emirates Old Trafford, Lancashire County Cricket Club Manchester where PNE duo Alan Browne and Ben Davies are up for awards with the Championship Player of the Year and Rising Star Award respectively.
