Jamie Vardy Leads Leicester City to Championship Title with Victory at Preston

Jamie Vardy showcased his enduring prowess as he guided Leicester City to clinch the Championship title with a commanding victory over Preston North End. The already-promoted Foxes secured their crowning glory with Vardy’s double, further solidifying his status as a Leicester legend.

The 37-year-old former England striker, renowned for his pivotal role in Leicester’s Premier League title triumph and FA Cup success, demonstrated his goal-scoring prowess once again. With a goal in each half, Vardy elevated his season tally to 20 in all competitions, underlining his enduring impact on the club.

Kasey McAteer joined the scoring spree with a close-range header, contributing to Leicester’s dominant performance against Preston North End. The victory sealed Leicester’s status as Championship title winners, marking their return to the Premier League following relegation.

In achieving this feat, Leicester became the fourth club in as many years to secure an immediate Premier League return as Championship title winners, following in the footsteps of Burnley, Fulham, and Norwich. Their remarkable resurgence sets the stage for a potential record-equalling achievement, as Leicester aims to match Tottenham’s 104-year-old record for most second division wins in a season, a feat they can accomplish when they face Blackburn on the final day of the campaign.
