Bernard, 105, helps Preston kick off the season in style
Preston North End kicked off their Championship campaign by inviting a very special fan to be their mascot for the day.
That supporter was none other than 105-year-old Bernard, who has followed the club for the last century or so.

And Bernard was in his element as his beloved club laid on a fitting VIP experience at Deepdale before Saturday's opener against Sheffield Wednesday.
Let's face it, it's probably the least Preston could do in light of Bernard's long years of faithful service!
