PNE currently play in Sky Bet Championship. Our nickname is the Lilywhites, based on the colour of our strip (currently white shirts, navy shorts and white stockings). Another nickname is 'The Invincibles', due to the PNE team that won the first ever Football League championship and the FA Cup in the same season, without losing a game.

Preston North End can be traced back to 1863 but at this time it was more cricket than football being played, it was actually 1878 when football was first played.

Preston North End play in white shirt, navy shorts and navy and white hooped socks.

The name Preston North End comes from the clubs very beginning when they played cricket on Moor Park and the name North End comes from the Club being situated in the north of the town.

The Club had many years of playing cricket, rounders and rugby, but when it noticed the success of other clubs in Lancashire who were playing soccer, in 10 May 1880 it was unanimously decided that the club should diversify into this sport.

The first manager of Preston North End was William Sudell who had great success within a very short time of the Club being created, this is illustrated by the fact that from 22 August 1885 to 26 April 1886, North End were undefeated and during the season won 59 out of the 64 matches, scoring a massive 318 goals and conceding only 60.

Despite their success, Sudell completed his team building by signing centre forward John Goodall, from this 'The Invincibles' were on their way to making football history.

In the 1888/89 season not only were North End founding members of the Football League but they won it, along with the FA Cup. This made them the first team to achieve the double at the first possible opportunity. In 1889/90 North End were again crowned league champions and were runners-up in the three seasons which followed.

Proud of his Prestonian roots and proud to play his entire professional career with his home-town club, the man known as 'the Preston Plumber' will probably never be surpassed in the position of Preston North End's greatest player of all time.

His official league debut came at the belated age of 24 as the Second World War delayed the start of an astonishing career, with the occasion marked with a goal in the 3-2 victory over Leeds Utd at Deepdale on August 31st 1946.

The stadium name is Deepdale, we have played football there since our first game in 1880, with the sports club we originated from having played there for most of the preceding decade.

Deepdale Duck Preston North End's mascot is the Deepdale Duck. The first mascot to be sent off in a league game who has been hassling players since 1994. As proved in previous seasons he is a rather mischievous duck. He is great with kids and always makes a special effort to entertain all the fans, home and away.

Deepdale Duck will be around at all home matchdays and you can find out where he will be at what time on the day of a game by looking out for our posters in the family stand!
