Charlie Lyons is the most recent arrival into the U18s squad among the second-years, having signed from Irish outfit Inishvilla AFC in January 2017.
The Cork-born youngster had been training with the young Lilywhites two months before then and had to wait patiently before he could make his debut. However, he was able to make his first youth team appearance at Deepdale in a 3-2 victory against AFC Wimbledon after extra-time.
Lyons is a strong, left-footed defender who is equally comfortable at both left-back and centre-back.
