A magazine celebrating the amazing career of Preston North End legend Sir Tom Finney has gone on sale at the club's shop.

The 84-page publication features dozens of club and country action photographs from the former England player's personal collection.

The Sir Tom Finney Commemorative magazine includes tributes from England boss Fabio Capello, Manchester United supremo Sir Alex Ferguson and Tottenham Hotspur & England goal-scoring legend Jimmy Greaves.

Preston General Manager Ben Rhodes said: "Sir Tom's magazine is selling very well to people of all ages.

"Five thousand copies have been printed and they are flying off the shelves.

"A lot of people who have bought it are too young to have seen Sir Tom play.

"But his legendary status has been passed down through the generations and they all know what he means to Preston North End.

"It's not a magazine you read and then throw away after a couple of weeks. It's a lasting tribute and a collectors' item."

Sir Tom, now 86, scored 187 goals in 433 appearances for Preston between 1946-60. He was capped 76 times for England.

Rhodes added: "Sir Tom is still very active around the area and comes to most of our home games.

"He even travelled to Blackpool to watch us win at Bloomfield Road on November 16."

Sir Tom has a stand at named after him at Deepdale - as well as a road and a statue.

Next year he will have his very own day as Preston City Council looks to commemorate its most famous son.

The event on March 26 and will feature a gala dinner at Preston Guildhall and a special Sir Tom Finney exhibition organised by the National Football Museum.

Preston Chairman Derek Shaw said: "It's wonderful for the city to give something back to Sir Tom."
