Chester vs Grasshoppers


Chester 27 – 14 Preston Grasshoppers Hoppers made the short journey to Hare Lane to take on a Chester side that last week had decimated Scunthorpe with seventeen tries and a score of one hundred and nine to twelve. Undaunted, and fresh from a week off after a much more solid performance of their own […]

Grasshoppers vs Hinckley


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. However, the heavy rain over lunchtime gave way to a dry and not too chilly start to the match with little or no wind to trouble the […]

Stourbridge vs Grasshoppers


Stourbridge 52 – 12 Preston Grasshoppers Hoppers made the long trip to Stourbridge with a side that, true to Arnie’s promise last week, contained several changes as he begins to restructure the squad for the future.

Grasshoppers vs Tynedale


Preston Grasshoppers 14 – 29 Tynedale With Tynedale coming to Lightfoot Green on the back of inflicting defeat by the biggest margin this season in the first meeting, and now comfortably established in the middle of the league table, today’s game, although winnable, was never going to be easy and, given Hoppers’ present form, to […]

Sheffield Tigers vs Grasshoppers


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. Hoppers travelled with a number of changes to […]

Scunthorpe vs Grasshoppers


Scunthorpe 7 – 30 Preston Grasshoppers Hoppers travelled to Scunthorpe fully aware that with both teams occupying the foot of National League 2 North, this was a vitally important match if either of them were to start the long climb to safety. From the Scunthorpe kick off Hoppers showed their intent with a fast break […]

Grasshoppers vs Fylde


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 […]

Otley vs Grasshoppers


Otley 0-0 Preston Grasshoppers In paraphrasing Dickens, one of the travelling supporters commented, ‘It was the best nil-nil, it was the worst nil-nil’ But anyone thinking this was a dour slog in the mud would be grossly mistaken. In the most unpleasant conditions faced this season with rain, sleet and a bitterly cold, albeit light […]
