It takes Preston’s total games in pre-season up to five so far, with a pre-season training camp in Spain taking place from July 2 until July 8.

There has yet been no word on whether there will be a game taking place during North End’s pre-season training camp in Spain, as there was last year against Getafe, with supporters keen to travel to follow their side abroad.

There are also no home games currently confirmed to take place over pre-season, although PNE had been waiting on the Premier League season to finish to see where sides would be playing next season in order to try and pencil a game in.
