Preston North End have re-joined the Central League ahead of the 2021/22 season.
The games in this competition will provide the club’s younger players with important development opportunities as they look to make the step up to senior football, with a competitive league to play in and the chance to play alongside senior players who are in need of game time.
The team for these games will be led by first team coaches Paul Gallagher and Steve Thompson.
North End will play their home games at the first team training ground in Euxton, unless stated otherwise, and details of access to these games will be announced in due course.
PNE will also compete in the Central League Cup, which consists of three groups of four teams, who face each other once in the group stages with the winner of each group and the best placed runner up progressing to the knock-out stage.
