The next Preston North End legend could be found during half-term thanks to a new football school.

Coaching sessions from the Sir Tom Finney Foundation are being held at the Springfields training ground.

It runs from Tuesday 27 May to Friday 30 May.

The Foundation offers courses for children aged four to 14-years-old.

A statement from Preston North End said: “During this soccer school, the children will be training like the pros with position specific training sessions and drills.

“The first day will focus on defensive work, the second day on the engine room of a football team the midfield and the third day on how to be the goalscoring hero with a striker masterclass.

“On the final day, we will bring all these skills together for a matchday scenario.”

Sessions run from 8.30am to 4.30pm. Prices are £10 per day or £40 for the full four days. Paying for four days means you get an adult and child ticket to a selected game next season included.

Alongside the Train Like a Pro course a second programme of events is the Activity Zone.

This includes drama and dance workshops, singing, multisport sessions and arts and crafts.

It will be held in the Sir Tom Finney Community and Learning Centre at Deepdale.
