PRESTON NORTH END's Notable Achievements

Preston North End were the first club to win the Football League title in the 1888-89 season. In the same season they became the first club to win the League and FA Cup double. Preston were undefeated in the League and didn't concede a goal in their FA Cup run, which culminated with a 3-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Kennington Oval.

Following their domination of English football in the 1888-89 season Preston became known as the Invincibles. But, Preston had earlier set a record that still stands today, when they defeated Hyde 26-0 in an FA Cup tie at Deepdale in 1887. This remains the biggest victory in English football at a senior level.

Tom Finney - Preston's Greatest Player

Without doubt Preston North End's greatest player was the late Tom Finney. The forward was a one-club man and made 473 appearances for Preston, scoring 210 goals. He played 76 times for England, and netted 30 goals.

Finney ranks alongside the true greats of British football and, along with Stanley Matthews, Billy Wright and Duncan Edwards, was one of the brightest stars of English football in the 1950s.
