Ben Pringle among six players released by Preston
Ben Pringle heads a list of six players released by Preston following the conclusion of the Sky Bet Championship season.
All of the players are out of contract and five of them – Pringle (Tranmere), Andy Boyle (Ross County), Marnick Vermijl (MVV Maastricht), Michael Howard (Stalybridge) and Tom Stead (Kendal) – finished the campaign away from Deepdale.
The sixth, Tommy Spurr, started the season on loan at Fleetwood but returned to Preston at Christmas after sustaining a hip problem.
A statement announcing the news added: ‘Preston North End would like to thank all the departing players for their effort and commitment to the club during their time at Deepdale and wish them all the very best in their future careers.’
