Many fans donned bowler hats and suits for the occasion to help celebrate the memory of PNE fans who have passed away.

Almost 3,000 North Enders travelled to the Hawthorns only to see PNE’s slim play-off chances totally wiped out. 

Neil said: “It’s Gentry Day for our fans and it’s a massive day for them and I feel it has been ruined for them, which is very disappointing. All I can do is apologise to them for that.”

Despite all this the fans lived up to their Gentry reputation, and were still singing at the end of the game. 

After chanting “we want one” at 4-0 down, the fans got their wish with Callum Robinson’s consolation goal.

This prompted semi-ironic celebrations and hundreds of bowler hats being launched into the air.

There may be a lot of uncertainty around Deepdale at the moment but one thing is for sure – as Alan Ball Snr said: “PNE fans are the best. They’re the Gentry.”
