As the sad news emerges of a passing of one of Preston’s favourite sons, Sir Tom Finney, we pick out five pictures from the Preston archive of the PNE legend.Advertisement
Below are a collection of Sir Tom Finney pictures from his playing career, the pictures come from the Preston Digital Archive.
Sir Tom was a proper footballer. He gave everything for PNE. He only played for them. A “lion” is how many have described him.
Not just a talent for North End, Sir Tom also played 70 times for England.
Off the pitch he was well known for his sense of humour, as seen with this cheeky picture here outside Preston railway station.
He was part of a legendary Preston North End team, on the pitch Sir Tom was just something else.
Sir Tom was always supportive of all things Preston and willing to give up his time to charitable and good causes.
You can see more pictures on the Preston Digital Archive, dedicated to preserving Preston’s history in digital format.
