Have your say

Deepdale fell silent ahead of Preston North End’s game with Leyton Orient as supporters paid tribute to Sir Tom Finney.

The minute’s applause ahead of kick-off was impeccably observed by a bumper crowd, both sets of players lining-up around the centre-circle.

Before that, PNE finance director Kevin Abbott had presented flowers and a No.7 Preston shirt to Sir Tom’s family.

In the seventh minute of the game, the crowd broke into a round of applause, Sir Tom having worn the No.7 shirt for North End.
