Preston North End U19s have been crowned champions of the EFL Youth Alliance North West Conference!
Nick Harrison’s side won the league title in style on Tuesday afternoon, beating Port Vale away from home with an emphatic 8-1 scoreline.
North End headed to Stoke-on-Trent knowing that three points would clinch the title, and they took no time in doing so, scoring five within the first 32 minutes of the game, before rounding off the victory in the second half.
There will be a full match report and post-match reaction from the title-winning victory to follow on PNE.Com.
It has been a remarkable campaign for the Academy, with the team now having gone 19 games unbeaten in the league, with their last defeat in the competition coming in September 2021.
There is also still chance for the U19s to seal the league and cup double, with the Youth Alliance Cup final taking place on 3rd May against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.
