Preston legend Sir Tom Finney will be among the guests of honour when the club celebrates the opening of the new £6 million stand at Deepdale.

The Invincibles Pavilion - named after the club's famous double-winning team of 1888/89 - opens when North End entertain Crystal Palace on August 16.

Former England striker Finney, now 86, will be there with players who have represented the club over the last five decades.

The 4,000-capacity stand, which includes 24 corporate hospitality boxes, will ensure Deepdale is one of the best grounds outside the Premier League.

It replaces the old Pavilion Stand which was built in 1938, and knocked down last summer.

The new stadium has already caught the eye of former Preston player and manager David Moyes.

He was impressed with what he saw last month when he brought his Everton side to Deepdale for a friendly.

Preston spokesman Matt Morris said: "It certainly looks better than the stand which used to be behind the dug-out when David was in charge."
