Republic of Ireland

Greg Cunningham returned to Deepdale in January 2021, three years on from his last appearance for the club.

It was initially a loan until the end of the season but that deal was soon made permanent until the summer of 2023 following his impressive performances in the 11 games he played - one of which included a great goal away at Blackburn Rovers.

In his first spell for the club, the left back became an integral part of the PNE squad, taking the armband on occasion towards the end of his three-year spell at Deepdale.

He helped the club push for a Play-Off spot before moving on to Premier League side Cardiff City, where he made 14 appearances in an injury-disrupted few years.

Prior to his first move to PR1, Cunningham had been a top performer in League One with Bristol City. He joined the Robins from Manchester City, where he had come through the Academy after moving over from Ireland.

Greg has represented the Republic of Ireland four times, with his last cap coming in 2013, being part of a defence tasked with keeping Robert Lewandowski quiet.
