Fans Invited To Sign Book Of Condolence For Sir Bobby Charlton

23 October 2023

A book of condolence will be at Deepdale from midday on Tuesday 24th October for supporters to pay tribute to England and Manchester United legend, and former Preston North End player and manager, Sir Bobby Charlton.

Sir Bobby – who took charge at Deepdale in 1973 and later became player-manager – passed away on Saturday 21st October 2023, surrounded by his family.

As of 12pm on Tuesday, there will be a book of condolence in the main ticket office at the stadium, and supporters are invited to come down and pay their respects to the footballing great.

The book will then be moved at midday on Wednesday 25th October – when PNE face Southampton – to the main reception in the Sir Tom Finney Stand, before returning to the ticket office on Thursday morning.

The club hopes as many North End supporters, and those in the local area, can pay their respects for one of the most talented and well-respected men in English football.

Rest in peace, Sir Bobby.
