'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Grayson Appointed

The anticipated appointment of Simon Grayson as Preston's new manager was made on Monday.

Grayson, as he told BBC Radio Lancashire, had this to say on his appointment: 'It's a club that has got fantastic tradition and history and hopefully we can be the ones to take them back to where everyone wants to be.'

Having been out of work since his departure from Huddersfield around a month ago Grayson was "itching" to return and didn't need any convincing about the position at Deepdale.

He aims to get the club back to where they were heading a few years back, adding: 'It wasn't so long ago that this football club was in the play-off positions for the Premiership, never mind to get into the Championship.

'We want to come into the football club and try to recreate that positive place, the passion among the supporters and the performances from the players which will gather the spirit of what Preston North End is all about.'

Glynn Snodin will be part of the coaching set up alongside Grayson with John Dreyer, who was former boss Graham Westley's assistant manager and had acted as caretaker boss, also remaining as part of this set up.

This is a good appointment as Grayson has a reputation of doing good things in League One, and hasn't done badly in the Championship either really!
