A bunch of die-hard football fans flew the flag for Preston North End at the Women’s World Cup in Canada.

Life long PNE fans Geoff Lowe and Jim Ribchester bagged tickets to England’s semi-final clash against Japan in Edmonton.

Geoff was visiting cousin Jim who moved from Preston to Calgary in the 1990s and they witnessed the Lionesses agonising injury-time defeat as Laura Bassett’s own goal sealed victory for Japan.

But despite the defeat England fans flew their ‘one and only North End’ England flag with pride.
