Gary Parkinson backs winner ahead of Preston North End Retro Day

March 26, 2019

Gary Parkinson had the perfect preparation for Preston North End’s Retro Day by backing a winner at Haydock Park.


The former North End defender suffered a stroke in 2010, and his condition – locked-in syndrome – means he can only communicate through eye movement and is wheelchair-bound.


Gary’s wife Deborah said: “Gary loves horse racing, and it meant such a lot for us as a family to be together, and see Gary smiling and enjoying one of his favourite pastimes.


“Haydock Park gave us a hospitality lounge, and I can’t thank them enough for their kindness to Gary. We are all very much looking forward to Gary going back to Deepdale, where he loved playing and always receives a very warm welcome from Preston.”
