Preston had a season comprising of mixed results, culminating in a 13th place finish in the Championship, but they will now look to their new chief scout to help them boslter their ranks.

Preston’s boss Ryan Lowe believes that his new chief scout, James Wallace, can bring the key ingredients to the side after his confirmation.

Lowe said: “He knows the football industry inside and out. He’s got loads of good connections, working at Fleetwood for two and a half years, maybe a little bit longer.

“At the end of the day it’s about what we do on the recruitment side of things, the analytical side of things and the data side of things, but there’s nothing better than getting eyes on a player and the players you’re potentially looking to sign.

“That’s what James’ job will be - getting out and seeing what’s out there. I’m really pleased to get him on board, he’s going to be a fantastic addition for us.”
