Preston appoint Simon Grayson as new manager


Preston have named Simon Grayson as their replacement for the sacked Graham Westley.

The club have moved quickly since Westley's departure, securing Grayson's services in less than a week. 

Grayson brings with him Glynn Snodin as a first team coach, with John Dreyer, who took charge of the side for their 2-0 against Bournemouth on Saturday, remaining part of the coaching set up.

Grayson has good previous form managing clubs in League One, having taken Huddersfield up via the play offs only last season. He was sacked from there earlier this year after 12 games without a win. 

Before Huddersfield, Grayson had also taken Leeds into the Championship, having moved there from Blackpool, where he also oversaw a successful promotion to the Championship.

Promotion this year for Preston however is highly unlikely, with the side currently 17th in the league, with Saturday's win only their second of the year, and their first at home since September, a winless run of 12 home games that is a club record, but now over.
