A Preston North End fan was winner of a competition which saw her win a PNE Shirt and Ball.


Supporter Lynn Noon had already purchased a ticket to watch Preston play away at Sheffield United, and was on her way to the game courtesy of the club’s free coach travel offer to Brammall  Lane.

Despite a painful 1-0 defeat in the match, Lynn’s day ended as the lucky winner of an npower competition which involved simply answering a trivia question about Preston North End during the coach journey.

This was part of npower’s sponsorship of the Football League giving all away fans travelling on the Tyres coaches, the opportunity to enter the competition.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Lynn was unable to collect her prize in person at North End’s home match against Nottingham Forest back on 11 September.

However defender, Billy Jones stepped in to receive the prize on the winner’s behalf from npower girl, Charlotte.

The shirt and the ball have now subsequently presented to Mrs Noon.

npower are also set to continue to support Preston North End with further developments.

They are helping fans to support the club by giving away a £45 club shop and ticket office voucher to those who switch to npower’s football tariff.
