The tributes continue to pour in for Trevor Hemmings after the Preston North End owner passed away at the age of 86 on Monday night.

Hemmings had a lengthy association with North End having first become a director of the club back in the 1970’s.

Come 2010, Hemmings took ownership of the club having seen Preston’s dire financial situation.

His work in rebuilding Preston’s finances is being appreciated by many now, as he helped keep the club afloat for some time.

Fans will pay tribute to Hemmings at Deepdale on Saturday afternoon, but supporters want more done for the former owner.

One idea being floated on Twitter is that the Invincibles Pavillion is renamed after Hemmings.

Some believe that Hemmings needs to be permanently remembered around Deepdale, preferably with the renaming of the stand.

Fans think this would be perfect to commemorate Hemmings, urging the club to get it done.

A statue and renaming a road near the stadium has also been suggested, but the Invincibles Pavillion idea seems to be the most popular right now.
