Preston North End say their city council's decision to reject plans for a new training ground amounts to throwing away support for the club.

The plans were rejected by Preston City councillors on Thursday, despite being approved by the council's own planning officers, because of attached plans to build 450 houses along with the training ground.

The council did approve the specifics of the training ground, but the club say that development can't go ahead without the housing, which would bring in the revenue needed for construction.
