Preston manager ‘doesn’t sign any n*bheads – and it’s as simple as that’

Football League manager Ryan Lowe has a unique but successful transfer policy having joined Preston from Plymouth Argyle last year – making sure he doesn't sign 'any n*bheads'.

The 43-year-old former Liverpool youth prospect called time on his playing career back in 2018 and impressed during managerial spells with Plymouth Argyle and now Preston.

With the club keeping three clean sheets so far this season, having brought in the likes of Freddie Woodman and Robbie Brady – Lowe has opened up on his biggest transfer command.

Speaking to the media before their clash against Luton Town, Lowe said: "I don't want to give myself too much credit in terms of who we have in the retirement team.

"But one of my big thing is, and I'll say it on record, I don't sign any n*bheads it's as simple as that.

"If I feel that someone is going to cause the group problems, or me and the coaching staff a problem, or even cause the club a problem – it's not going to happen."

With Preston going on to pick up their first win of the Championship season after two consecutive goalless draws, Lowe's transfer policy might just be paying off.

He said after Brad Potts scored the only goal of the game: "You don't want to get too carried away but it is a big win against a good team.

"We've got to enjoy the moment with our fans because we've grafted hard for three points today. We put in the work throughout the week, to pick up three points here and it has been rewarded today.

"Coming to Luton Town, there are not many teams who will come here and win, let alone have the ball and create plenty of chances in the match. So, overall, pleased with the performance and pleased with the three points because it's a fantastic place to come and win."

Lowe took over at Deepdale having walked away from Plymouth Argyle, whom he led to promotion back into League One back in 2019/20.

The former Bury and MK Dons striker, who hails from Liverpool, has now picked up 12 wins from his 30 fixtures with Preston – losing only seven times.
