Preston North End v Liverpool

preston-awayLiverpool will begin their pre-season programme with a friendly at Preston North End on Saturday, July 13.

The fixture, which will be played at Deepdale with kick-off at 3pm BST, will be covered as usual across all LFC media, with live streaming available on the club's official website for LFC TV Online subscribers.

The match will bring together two north-west clubs with a shared bond - the iconic Bill Shankly.

As Liverpool manager, the inspirational Scot created one of football's greatest and most successful dynasties at Anfield.

The man from Glenbuck is revered at Preston too, having spent the vast majority of his playing career with the Lancashire outfit across 16 years.

This friendly match will provide both sets of supporters with an opportunity to celebrate the life and career of Shankly, in the same year in which the 100th anniversary of his birth will be marked.

The two sides last met in an FA Cup third-round clash in January 2009; Albert Riera and Fernando Torres struck the goals in a 2-0 away victory for the Reds.
