Anyone visiting Preston North End for a hospitality visit won’t be eating the same food as last season.

The Lillywhites have put pen to paper on a new catering deal with Paul Heathcote.

The chef, who used to run The Olive Press in Winckley Square, among other restaurants, has won back the contract for catering, matchday hospitality and non-matchday event programming at Deepdale.

Following the fax machine whirring in Paul Heathcote’s office the deal comes in on 1 July.

Paul Heathcote said: “I can remember back in 1997 when Preston North End gave us our first opportunity in stadium catering, we were very grateful then and grateful now, it feels like we are coming home.”

Previously the club was signed up with Simon Rigby’s The Villa chain for its catering, but this has come to an end.

A statement from Preston North End said: “We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Simon Rigby and all his team for the tremendous time, effort and commitment over the last five years that we have worked together and wish them every success in their ever growing businesses, both in Preston and elsewhere in the country.”
