Sir Tom Finney already has a place on the honour role. Now PNE will join him – and some would say about time too.

At the prestigious Hall of Fame ceremony in October North End will receive one of two special awards – the other, marking the 1914 World War One centenary, goes to The Football Battalion, a group of professional footballers and fans who fought in the Battle of the Somme.

Inductees to the Hall of Fame were chosen by judges including ex-PNE manager Sir Bobby Charlton, and Preston born Mark Lawrenson.

National Football Museum Director Kevin Moore said: “We are delighted to be able to recognise the achievements of these legendary players in this way.

“We really hope they and their families can attend the induction dinner and we’d love to see fans come along too – it’s a rare chance to be close to some of the biggest players in football history.

“We’re also extremely grateful to the PFA and the FA for their continued support of the event.”

The names were revealed at a reception at the National Football Museum (which used to be based in Deepdale, Preston) last Thursday and the Hall of Fame ceremony takes place on 16 October.
