St Ledger happy at Preston

05 Jan 2010 - 06:41:57

Preston North End defender Sean St Ledger is delighted with the way things have gone since he returned to Deepdale from a loan spell at Middlesbrough.

The 25-year-old Republic of Ireland international helped the Lilywhites to a stunning 7-0 FA Cup third round win over Colchester United to set up a clash with Premier League leaders Chelsea.

That came shortly after manager Alan Irvine was axed following a poor run of form.

St Ledger told the club's official website: "I'm glad to be back. It has been a strange situation, but I am happy to be back, glad to be around the boys again.

"I received a great reception from the fans, both at Sheffield United and at home against Colchester, which was nice and I have a big thank you to say to them for the way they have treated me since I have been back.

"It was a perfect weekend after everything that had happened in the week.

"Alan Irvine had been great to me when I came back, I knew how the place worked and it was a disappointment to see him lose his job, but I am sure he'll move on and we have to do the same."
