Storey Eyeing 100 Club

20 September 2021

Jordan Storey is eyeing up 100 appearances in a Preston North End shirt after putting pen to paper on a new contract with the club.

The central defender who first joined the Lilywhites in 2018 has signed a deal to run until 2025.

He’s featured 87 times so far for North End and he’s looking to break into a century of games, while looking even further ahead to the next landmark.

Jordan told iFollow PNE: “There’s been stages during my time here where I’ve played loads of games and there’s been stages where I’ve not played as much as I should have, but to reach 100 games for Preston would be a great achievement for me.

“I want to play every game of the season and I think my next aim after 100 will be 200 games for the club so I just want to keep that momentum going.”

When he arrived at Deepdale as a 20-year-old three years ago, he told iFollow he was hoping to ‘grow into a man’, and he feels as though he has done that, with the likes of Ben Davies, Paul Huntington and Patrick Bauer helping along the way.

Speaking after signing the deal, Jordan said: “To have players like Davo, Hunts and Pat, I think you learn a lot, not just from playing with them but from watching them and being with them in training too so it’s helped me a great deal I think.

“I’m delighted [to sign a new contract]. I’ve been here for a few years now, I love the club, I love the area so it’s nice to get it done and dusted.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time here and I want to keep progressing at the club so it was my main goal to stay here.

“I’ve learned a lot here. [I’ve had] a lot of experiences here and I just want to keep progressing here and hopefully achieve something special with the club.”

So far this season, the former Exeter City defender has featured in every single minute of Championship action.

That run of games, on a personal level, has been great for the man from Yeovil, but the unbeaten run of six for the team has made recent times even better.

“It’s been great; it’s what I’ve been looking for,” added Jordan. “It’s nice to pick up a good run. We’re unbeaten in six now and that’s what you want as a player and that’s what we’re all wanting as a team, to put it right from the first three games at the start of the season which we were quite disappointed with, so my aim is still to play every game of the season and hopefully that continues.”
