Ridsdale named chairman at Deepdale‏

Peter Ridsdale has been confirmed as the new chairman of Preston North End following Maurice Lindsay’s resignation last week.

Lindsay stood down for health reasons and is replaced by the former Leeds United chairman who has worked with a variety of Football League clubs.

Ridsdale said: "I am delighted and privileged to be joining Preston North End Football Club.

"The club has an incredible heritage, a large and loyal supporter base and is a club that, frankly, ought to be competing in the Premier League rather than playing in League One."
