The young forward made the temporary move to Bamber Bridge last month and his initial one-month stay with the club drew to a close last weekend.

Preston announced the agreement on their official club website on Wednesday, confirming the 19-year-old will remain with Brigg until January 1st 2022. The deal means Rodwell-Grant gets the chance to nail down a spot in Jamie Milligan’s starting XI as he bids to impress away from the Championship club.
He recently scored his first goal for Bamber Bridge, netting in a 4-1 win against Witton Albion on November 20th.
Rodwell-Grant’s game time at Deepdale
Much of the young forward’s game time with Preston North End has come in their academy, though he has appeared in Frankie McAvoy’s first-team plans at times this season.
Rodwell-Grant made his debut for the Lilywhites in their 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Mansfield Town back in August. He came on off the bench to play the final eight minutes.
His Championship debut also came back in August, making a brief substitute appearance in a 3-1 win over Swansea City.
