Profile

Preston North End are managed by Simon Grayson who took charge in February 2013, following the departure of Graham Westley. Grayson led the club up to the Championship in 2015, which was followed by a very respectable 11th place finish on their return to the second-tier.

Preston are famously the first English champions, having won the inaugural Football League (unbeaten!) way back in 1988/89, an achievement they repeated the following season. Remarkably the club has yet to add a third title, although they've finished runners-up a sizeable six times. Preston also have a brace of FA Cup triumphs to their name.
