Craig Salmons Soapbox: What would await Preston North End in the Premier League?

The 2019 PNE calendar is now on sale, and this year we have a 'Legends of the Town End' edition.

The calendar features 12 North End legends, using images that are now displayed on the Alan Kelly Town End concourse following a fan vote last season. The top 12 from that vote can now be found in the 2019 calendar, featuring players from varying eras.

So whether you will be reminising looking at the old photos, or teaching the next generation of North End fans about former heroes, the calendar is suitable for supporters of all ages, with each legend image coming with some statistics about that player.

The 2019 PNE Legends of the Town End calendar, which has gone on sale in the Club Shop priced at £9.99. The A3 sized calendar also has plenty of space for all those important PNE fixtures, your appointments and anything else you need to track in your diary.

His two goals for the club came early in the 2014/15 season, away at Rochdale in the League Cup and against Sheffield United in League One at Deepdale.

The Northern Ireland international had injury problems at Deepdale and was loaned out to Blackpool and Accrington Stanley in a bid to gain match fitness.

PNE signed him on the back of his form with Rangers which came as the Glasgow club worked their way back up the Scottish league ladder following their financial problems, Little netting 38 goals for them.

Announcing his decision to retire on Twitter, Little said: “I have had an extremely frustrating four-and-a-half years since I left Glasgow Rangers.

“I have had injury after injury, countless scans and gone to considerable effort and expense trying to give myself the best chance of succeeding again.

“Fractured skull/jaw/eye socket and cheekbone, damaged vertebrae, bilateral hip surgery, injections, muscle injuries, Italian gum shields….the list goes on.
