PNE’s first pre-season encounter, as things stand, is in Spain against Lincoln City. Preston’s training camp will conclude with a clash against the Imps, at the Pinatar Arena. There’s an away clash at Salford City on July 30 - before the home game against Everton, as the final friendly of the summer, on August 3.

Ticket details will be confirmed in due course. Southport finished 17th in the National League North last season. The Sandgrounders are managed by former Morecambe, Rochdale and AFC Fylde boss Jim Bentley - who took over in August 2023.
