The 1869 Club

The ‘1869 Club’ is the official Supporters Club of PGRFC.

We were founded by a group of Hoppers supporters on 26th Aug 1987. The purpose of the 1869 Club is to support Hoppers in any way possible.

Our main activities are raising funds for various projects within Hoppers and encouraging vocal support on the touchline both home and away. We also try to provide volunteers when asked by the Hoppers Managment.

Membership is open to all Hoppers Supporters. The annual membership fee is £10 minimum, up to whatever you would like to pay! It ALL goes to SUPPORTING HOPPERS! If you would like to join us contact Les Harrison (Secretary) via email dawn.lh@btinternet.comvor 07910150780 with your details.

The ‘1869’ Club run coaches to as many 1st team away matches as possible. Last year we ran coaches to 8 games, and we hoping to improve on that this season.

We are aiming to travel to the following games:

19 Sept – Macclesfield
28 Nov – Harrogate
12 Dec – Huddersfield
2 Jan – Sale
16 Jan – Caldy
20 Feb – Otley
19 Mar – Sandal
23 Apr – Sedgley Park

Keep an eye on the coach lists on the notice board in the club foyer.

Coach to Sandal

The ‘1869’ Club are planning a coach to the 1st XV away match at Sandal on Saturday 19th March.

Time: 10.30am
Cost: £15

If you wish to travel please put your name on the notice in the Club foyer. A good turnout will be required for the coach to run, due to the longer distance.

On this occasion, please don’t contact Les Harrison as he will be away till the day before the game.

John Dewhurst and Dave Smith will be the organisers for this coach, so if you have a problem putting your name on the board, please contact one of them. John can be contacted via email at and Dave at
