PNE Stars Return To Roots Through PL Kicks

25 August 2023

Preston North End young players Kian Best and Kian Taylor returned to their local roots by taking part in a Premier League Kicks [PL Kicks] session at Moor Nook Community Centre.

Teenagers Best and Taylor have recently broken into the PNE first team having progressed through the club's academy. 

The pair took time out of their training schedule to meet the local children, all of whom attend PNECET's weekly free football sessions at Moor Nook. 

Best, who is soon to turn 18, grew up in the Moor Nook area, a stone's throw from the Community Centre where he would practice his skills as a young boy. 

Taylor, from Brookfields, also spent time there honing his passing and shooting as a child.

PL Kicks creates opportunities for young people who are at risk of anti-social behaviour, and youth violence from high-need areas across Preston, to regularly engage in football, sport, mentoring and personal development opportunities.
