Preston North End’s legendary Invincibles have been inducted into the National Football Museum Hall of Fame.

The ceremony took place on Thursday October 16 at it’s new location in Manchester.

The move might feel somewhat overdue, given that the 1888 Preston team went the entire season unbeaten and that the Football Museum found its original home at Deepdale before it was poached by Manchester.

Alan Shearer, Michael Owen and Trevor Francis all attended the induction, which was chosen by a panel of football experts that includes Sir Bobby Charlton and Sir Alex Ferguson.

PNE club secretary, Ben Rhodes, collected the team award on behalf of the 1888-89 side, which was presented by Mark Lawrenson and sponsor Michael Conlon.

Chairman Michael Conlon said:: “The heritage of football is so important and we’re proud to have been part of an award that recognises the outstanding achievements of some of the most remarkable legends to have ever graced the beautiful game.”
