15-02-2020

Preston Grasshoppers 3 – 33 Hinckley Hornets With the weather merchants forecasting another bout of gloom and doom the afternoon did not present the prospect of pleasant spectating.

Grasshoppers vs Wharfedale

18-01-2020

Preston Grasshoppers 26 – 26 Wharfedale The weather, in contrast to last week’s howling wind at Dore Moor, was calm, sunny and cold.

Sheffield Tigers vs Grasshoppers

11-01-2020

Sheffield Tigers 11 – 10 Preston Grasshoppers Dore Moor is probably the most elevated and exposed ground in the League and with a strong wind blowing the length of the pitch interspersed with light rain, this fixture was always going to be a game of two halves.

Grasshoppers vs Fylde

21-12-2019

Preston Grasshoppers 3-28 Fylde Speaking before the match, Arnie was upbeat about the team he’d been able to select and he assured us that he’d written to Father Christmas to tell him that he’d been a good boy all year. It appears that the old fellow had a very different opinion as all Arnie got […]
