The Player Of The Year Interviews: 2011 – Billy Jones

12 June 2020

The next official Player of the Year interviewee, in our efforts to speak to all the living winners of the 1968 launched award, is 2003 winner and former right back Billy Jones.

Billy was a popular recruit after coming through the ranks at Crewe Alexandra, a tribunal deciding upon his fee to sign for the Lilywhites from the Railwaymen and he discusses the process involved in that.
 
He talks about arriving as No.2 to Graham Alexander and then within weeks, finding himself having to step in the shoes of a PNE legend. He also discusses, even in such a short space of time, Grezza’s influence on him.
The man, who has just been promoted back to the Championship with Rotherham United, talks about his many managers during his time at Deepdale and about his chance to go on and play in the Premier League.
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.
