PNE To Host Hearts In Pre-Season

6 June 2022

Preston North End will welcome Heart of Midlothian to Deepdale for a pre-season friendly on Wednesday 20th July.

North End will take on the Scottish Premiership side for a 7.45pm kick-off, with the Jam Tarts arriving at Deepdale following a positive 2021/22 campaign.

Hearts finished third in Scotland's top flight, while also narrowly missing out on the Scottish Cup title, losing to Rangers in extra-time of the final.

Robbie Neilson’s side have guaranteed themselves a spot in Europe for the upcoming season, with a Europa League Play-Off coming up in August. Even if defeated they will play in the Conference League, so they will pose a tough test to Ryan Lowe's men.

The two sides last met in pre-season in 2015, when a Joe Garner goal saw PNE come out 1-0 winners at Deepdale.

Ticket details for this fixture will be confirmed at a later date, as will further pre-season friendlies.

Pre-season schedule confirmed so far:

  • Bamber Bridge (A), Saturday 2nd July, 3pm
  • Accrington Stanley (A), Saturday 16th July, 3pm
  • Hearts (H), Wednesday 20th July, 7.45pm
