We are delighted to announce that we have agreed a loan deal with Championship side Preston North End for Defender Lewis Coulton, which will see him at the Horsfall for the remainder of the season.

Lewis first joined the PNE academy as an u11, making his youth team debut at u15 level, and has also progressed through the youth levels with Scotland, up to their u19s who he helped get to the elite round of the European Championship qualification.

Coulton also played in several bounce matches alongside PNE first team players in the 2019/20 season, most notably in the Lancashire Senior Cup win at Chorley’s Victory Park, and was later named as a first team substitute in the 2020/21 campaign.

Over his first year as a professional, he enjoyed loan spells with Bamber Bridge and Warrington Town, reaching the play-offs with the latter.

During the 22/23 season, Lewis also spent time with Chester for a few months, helping them push towards a play-off position throughout July until November.

We look forward to seeing Coulton in Green and White! Stay tuned to our socials to see if he makes it into the squad for Saturday’s game v Brackley Town!
