Bamber Bridge vs Preston North End Preview

5 July 2019

Preston North End get their pre-season campaign underway with the annual trip to the Sir Tom Finney Stadium, to face Bamber Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

The Lilywhites face Brig in a 3pm kick-off, with admission at the ground priced at £10 for adults and £5 concessions, with U16s free when accompanied by an adult.

For North End fans, it will be the first chance to see summer signing Patrick Bauer in action, following the completion of his move from Charlton Athletic.

Others that could feature include Billy Bodin – who has not pulled on a Lilywhites shirt since last pre-season – and Josh Harrop, who has been out since October 2018, both with cruciate knee injuries.

The likes of Andrew Hughes, Tom Barkhuizen and Brad Potts, who all missed the last couple of months of last season after undergoing different operations, have all been back in full training since the start of pre-season and are also set for a run out.

Alex Neil’s side will wear their new home kit for the first time at the ground, formerly Irongate, and those who can’t make it to the game will be able to watch the game on iFollow PNE.
