Peter Ridsdale launched a staunch defence of his record in football after being unveiled as Preston's new chairman.

The 59-year-old former Leeds, Barnsley and Cardiff chief left his role as acting chairman at Plymouth to work alongside owner Trevor Hemmings at Deepdale after Maurice Lindsay stepped down due to ill health last week.

"I'm very proud and satisfied with my CV in football - I've been in football 24 years," he said. "In the five years I was at Leeds we were never outside the top five of the Premier League. It went sour after I left and I can't affect things once I've left a football club."
