World War One

Date: 27 July 2014

Many of these team-mates went to fight in WW1, some returned and some didn’t.

The 100th anniversary of Great Britain declaring war on Germany in World War One is approaching on August 4th. Club historian and archivist Mike Forshaw has been hard at work looking back at the Preston Grasshoppers team from that era (pictured above) and has unearthed some remarkable stories about the Hoppers who went away to fight in the war.

We’ll be publishing Mike’s piece on August 4th to coincide with the anniversary. Make sure you don’t miss it.
