Champions Preston Grasshoppers aiming to finish on a high
Preston Grasshoppers hope to put last Saturday’s defeat – only the second of the season – behind them and finish with a flourish when they host Sandal to round off their title-winning campaign in the North Premier League on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
Preston Grasshoppers recovered from a sluggish start to rack up 57 unanswered points and put a resounding gloss on collecting the North Premier League championship trophy at the end of their 22nd victory of this impressive season.
Title-winners Preston and Vale hope to celebrate in style
No rest for the champions. Preston Grasshoppers, newly-crowned kings of the North Premier League, and Vale of Lune, confirmed as title-winners in North One West last weekend, are both straight back into action tomorrow.
Despite a determined effort by Ilkley to spoil the promotion party, Preston Grasshoppers clinched the North Premier League title – and an immediate return to National League Two North – with three matches to spare.
Results of last Saturday’s rearranged matches mean that Preston Grasshoppers now need just 19 points from their remaining six fixtures to be sure of promotion straight back from the North Premier League.
