We’ve been catching up with our former Player of the Year winners over the last few weeks ahead of our upcoming 5,000th league game, and today our focus is on one of the club’s longest serving players in history, Lee Cartwright.
Lee made over 450 appearances for Preston North End and he speaks to us about his favourite memories over the 14 seasons he spent with the club.
He talks us through four different Play-Off campaigns including memorable ties at Deepdale over Torquay United in 1993/94 as PNE came from two goals down and Birmingham City in 2001 when Mark Rankine’s dramatic late winner sent the game to a penalty shootout.
Lee also discusses the several changes in management over the years he spent in PR1, such as John Beck, Gary Peters and David Moyes.
There’s also a fond look back to two separate title-winning seasons including the 1999/2000 division two campaign which ended with huge celebrations in the streets of Preston.
