Hoppers host local rivals Fylde

Date: 08 September 2023

Hoppers welcome local rivals Fylde to Lightfoot Green this Saturday in what the Met Office are predicted could be a late summer scorcher!

Fylde started their campaign with a home draw against Sheffield Tigers whilst Hoppers won on the road for the first time since the 2021/22 season, scoring 6 tries up at Tynedale. With Fylde well known for their running style and Hoppers coming into the game after a great win this could be set to be an entertaining affair.

Last season saw Fylde put together an excellent campaign winning 21 of their 25 games finishing a close second to promoted Sedgley Park. Top scorer for Fylde was fly-half Greg Smith with 219 points whilst Tom Grimes and Connor Wilkinson were top try scorers with 14 apiece.
