Consolidating resort

It serves Theakstons on draught.' Whilst Charlie Guinan a visiting Nottingham Forest fan informs me; ' Sumners was good for away fans and apart from the beer they served an excellent pie, chips, mushy peas and gravy for only £3.50.' There are also a couple of nearby clubs that welcome away fans.

First there is St Gregory's Catholic Club, which is around a five minute walk away on Blackpool Road.

Three sides of the stadium are composed of some excellent looking all seater stands, complete with some spectacular looking floodlights.

They are of the same height and style and are all large, covered, single tiered stands.

The pub does charge for parking (£3) but this can be redeemed against a purchase at the bar.

Good food is available and children are allowed in.

James Pritchett adds to get to the Sumners; ' Make sure you go towards Sainsburys and away from the Town Centre and it should take five minutes.

As you go past Sainsburys turn right at the lights and it is half way up the hill. The pub welcomes a mix of away and home support and are friendly towards families.

I was attracted to it by a flag at the top of the new Invincibles Stand that read ' True Prestonians Love a Butter Pie!

' I particularly enjoyed my last visit as the fans, stewards and even police all seemed to be fairly friendly and there was a good atmosphere being generated within the ground.

The fourth new stand, the Invincibles Stand (named after the legendary Preston team of 1888/1889 who went through the whole season unbeaten and were also the first in that season to win the League & FA Cup double), cost in the region of £9m to build.

The design of this stand is slightly different to the other three.

James Prentice adds; ' I would recommend the ' Butter Pie', which is a bit of a local delicacy.
