Walker and Procter Commit

Date: 28 July 2015

Young back row pairing Jack Walker and Luke Procter have both committed to Preston Grasshoppers for the 2015/16 season.

Walker, who is predominantly an open-side flanker, made 8 starts for the 1st XV last season with another 6 coming from the bench.

Looking forward to this season Jack said “I feel privileged to sign on again this year and hope this season I can prove myself worthy of a first team shirt. The set-up at the club is first class and the future looks good with exciting times ahead. Once a Hopper always a Hopper.”

Procter is a true clubman who has come all the way through the club and featured heavily in the 2nd XV last season making just one 1st XV appearance from the bench.

Procter echoed Walker by commenting “I’ve decided to re-sign for hoppers next season because I’ve played at hoppers since I was 7 years old. This year I’ve appeared from the first team to the third team and there’s no prouder feeling to put on a hoppers shirt when it’s a club you love.”

Director of Rugby Alan Holmes is pleased to have secured both players saying “I am very pleased that Jack and Luke have agreed to stay with us next season. They are both promising young players who have had a taste of first-team rugby last season and proved themselves at the level.”

We hope to see more of Jack and Luke in 1st XV action this coming season.
