The good food days are back at Deepdale!
IT WAS good to see a steaming tray of lasagne on offer in the Press room at Preston last Saturday. Better still, self-service has now been restored, writes CHRIS DUNLAVY.
A couple of seasons back,members of the media were surprised to be handed vouchers entitling them to a single portion of food.
Was it budget cutbacks? Some kind of health kick? No.Turns out that a rather corpulent and extremely hungry scout had rocked up to a match and helped himself to six –yes, SIX – separate helpings before somehow squeezing into his seat for the game.
