We welcome Preston North End to Oakwell this weekend for our final home Sky Bet Championship fixture of the campaign.

That means there’s another edition of Grove Street – the last of the season – available for you to enjoy reading either before the game, at half-time or when you get back home.

There are two feature length interviews in this issue, starting with our cover star, LIAM KITCHING, who expresses his disappointment at our relegation to League One, insisting that it simply hasn’t been good enough this term.

The versatile defender reflects on his own personal performances and his belief that the experience gained and lessons learnt at this level will only prove to be beneficial in the long run.

We also sat down with TOM HARBAN to discuss our U18s’ wonderful campaign so far, the progress and development of individual players and their potential place in the Professional Development League play-offs.

He speaks about the youngsters’ recent 10-day training camp in Italy and how that has helped them prepare for the upcoming matches, and the possibility that some players could integrate with the senior set-up next season.

As usual, we have our pages dedicated to the visitors from Deepdale, including a view from the opposition corner and LEIGH EDWARDS’ piece that focuses on former Lilywhites managers.

NEIL RICHARDSON’s latest artwork portrays the Reds’ 1912 FA Cup winning side, while giving an insight on some of the players from that particular squad including Wilf Bartrop, Harry Tufnell and Jimmy Moore.

Club legend BARRY MURPHY pens his traditional column and gives his ever-honest assessment of our season, but he remains optimistic for the future and states his opinion that now is a time to blood some academy players ahead of the 22/23 campaign.

There’s also plenty of fun and games for our junior supporters to enjoy completing.

All of this and more in your Preston North End edition of GROVE STREET. Pick up your copy from in and around Oakwell for just £3!
