Last season's captain plays former English giants

Many, many, yes, many years ago Preston North End were the biggest club in England.

They were the first ever winners of "the double" back in the 1890s and they were the original "invicibles" going a whole league season unbeaten.

Nowadays, they are an English Championship side but history still runs through their veins.

Therefore, for last season's title-winning captain Kapser Mikkelsen to play against them yesterday whilst on trial at AFC Fylde is pretty cool.

AFC Fylde play in the English National League and are aiming to break into League Two this season. Kapser has been on trial with them for their preseason and played 30 minutes in today's match.

However, Preston are currently three leagues higher than AFC Fylde and this was shown in the final score of 6-1 to the visitors.

We spoke to Kasper straight after the game and he said, "It was a great experience playing against a side that is pushing for promotion to the Premier League next season. The last 30 minutes was tough as it was mainly the trialists but we did everything we could. Playing in front of 1800 fans was cool!"

Mikkelsen wore the number 12 shirt and played in the number 10 position, impressing with his technique and fitness, a fitness level that has seen him win most of the preseason fitness drills.

Kasper is hoping to earn himself a full-time professional deal in England so we wish him all the very best - and, in the nicest possible way, never want to see him in the Almuñécar City shirt again!

Kasper was Triallist Number 12
