Phil Brown's 19 Preston North End signings rated - including one 8/10, three 3/10s and a 1/10: gallery

The former Hull City boss spent 11 months as PNE manager

Phil Brown was Preston North End manager from January 2011 to December of that year.

Appointed as Darren Ferguson’s successor, Brown was unable to keep PNE in the Championship and then relieved of his duties the following campaign - after a run of one win in 11 games. North End had started the season with 22 points from a possible 27, but form fell off a cliff.

It wasn’t to be for Brown at North End, and the same can unfortunately be said for most of the players he recruited during his tenure. The Lilywhites utilised the loan market heavily and brought in several free transfers.

Here, we rate all 19 of the now Kidderminster Harriers boss’ PNE recruits.
