The footballing world is in mourning this morning as one of its greatest players has passed away.


Sir Tom Finney was a one club player, and that club was Preston North End.

These are some of the tweets we spotted which touched a nerve as social media went into overdrive with PNE fans, footballers and football clubs saying goodbye to Sir Tom.
