The Player Of The Year Interviews: 2008 – Sean St. Ledger

14 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 recipient of the Sir Tom Finney Trophy is 2008 winner Sean St. Ledger.

The former Republic of Ireland international centre half speaks about joining the Lilywhites from Peterborough United and about the release of ‘Big Ron Manager’ just after signing up.
 
He discusses how a pre-season injury to Youl Mawene meant that he got his chance, which he took, as well as speaking about his move to Middlesbrough and his move back to Deepdale on Christmas Eve.
He also mentions the importance of his relationship with Alan Irvine in developing his career and about his eventual move to Leicester City. He also talks about his international career and scoring against Italy.
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.
