Join Us At Deepdale For Retro Day

17 April 2019

Fans of all ages are invited to wear their retro shirts as we celebrate Retro Day this Friday in aid of the Gary Parkinson Trust.

North End host Ipswich Town at 3pm on Good Friday, and this year’s ‘Retro Day’ will be helping to raise vital funds for the worthy cause.

Former PNE defender and fan favourite, Gary Parkinson was diagnosed with locked-in syndrome - a condition which leaves your major muscles paralysed but your mind fully aware.

'Parky' received the life-changing news at just 42-years-old following a stroke in 2010. His family have continued to raise funds for the former PNE man, to give him the best quality of life - and we are calling on North End fans to show their support on Good Friday.

Retro Day encourages fans to get their old North End shirts out from the back of the wardrobe and pull them on again for this special occasion.

There will be a range of former players at Deepdale to help raise money, with the likes of Ricardo Fuller, David Eyres, Mike Elwiss, Roy Tunks and many more attending.

A number of the former players will be heading to the club shop at 12.30pm for a signing session, so now is the chance to get that autograph you missed out on all those years ago!

The former players will also be pitchside at half-time for a warm welcome back to the club, so make sure you give them the reception they deserve.

The first team squad will also be wearing warm up t-shirts before kick-off, showing PNE’s support for the Gary Parkinson Trust.

There will also be a bucket collection around Deepdale ahead of kick-off, so please donate where you can in aid of a great cause and bring a pound for Parky!

To help get the word out about this fun event, don’t be afraid to be share this on social media to raise awareness and publicity for the Trust and share your photos in your retro shirts using #RetroDay.

Tickets for this game are still available and you can get yours now online at MyPNE.Com, by calling 0344 856 1966 or in person from the ticket office!
