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.
