The Player Of The Year Interviews: 2002 – Richard Cresswell

8 June 2020

We’ve been busy speaking to former Player of the Year winners since its’ inception in 1968, as we look ahead to the 5,000th game upon resumption and today our focus is 2002 winner Richard Cresswell.

The man David Moyes signed in the Play-Off Final season of 2000/01 talks about signing for the club, almost signing previous to that and his goalscoring debut on the last night of the old Town End.
 
He recalls the Play-Off semi-final win over Birmingham and the final experience against Bolton Wanderers at the Millennium Stadium, as well as talking through a fantastic goalscoring season and the difficulties of one where assists were three times his goal tally.
Cressy goes on to talk about the 2005 team and says that is probably the best team not to have got promoted to the Premier League and discusses the disappointment of the West Ham game being his last for the club.
To watch the full interview, just click on the video at the top of the page and come back tomorrow when we will have another of our interviews, as we look to speak to every Official Preston North End Player of the Year winner we can over the coming weeks.
