The Preston North End squad have enjoyed a game of hurling as their pre-season camp continues in Cork.

After their visit last year, the Lilywhites have returned to Fota Island and beat Cork City 2-0 in a friendly on Monday.

Following that win, Alex Neil’s side took in a team bonding session which left the footballs aside for hurleys and sliotars.

With plenty of Irish players in their squad, including Corkonians Alan Browne and Adam O’Reilly, Kilkenny-native Sean Maguire, and Dubliner Graham Burke, they certainly weren’t short of hurling knowhow.

According to PNE’s Twitter account, Browne and Maguire showed the rest how it’s done.
