Brad Potts joined PNE on a three-and-a-half-year deal from Barnsley on 3rd January 2019.

The midfielder became North End's third signing of the transfer window, and Potts started his life in PR1 in fine form.

He was on the scoresheet in his first two away games - victories against Queens Park Rangers and Stoke City. 

Potts featured heavily in his first full campaign and then even more so in 2020/21, playing 42 times in the Championship and scoring five goals, one of which was a last-gasp equaliser in Frankie McAvoy's first game in interim charge against Norwich City.

Potts came through the ranks at Carlisle United, making over 100 appearances for the Cumbrians, before a move down the M55 to Blackpool, where he would play close to a further 100 games.

Championship side Barnsley then brought him to Oakwell, but the Tykes were relegated during his time there, and once in League One, Potts soon started to hit form.

He'd scored seven goals from midfield in the first half of the season before PNE brought him back to Lancashire.
