Comeback Christmas cheer for Hoppers

22 December 2015

Hoppers vs Sedgley Park

Preston Grasshoppers ended 2015 with a fantastic comeback win over Sedgley Park in the first match sponsored by haleys since we became the main shirt sponsor of the Hoppers 1st XV.

haleys entertained 40 guests on the afternoon who were all treated to a thrilling encounter between a Hoppers side finding their best form of the season so far and a visiting team challenging at the top of the table.

Sedgley Park stormed into an early nine point lead, but the Hoppers reduced the deficit to a single point at the break and then took charge in the second half with Scott Jordan's second try of the afternoon to eventually win by 18 points to 15 and move eight points clear of the relegation places with a game in hand.

Despite a patch of inconsistency throughout the opening two months of the season in which they picked up just two wins from nine games, Hoppers have won four of their last five matches since mid-November to end 2015 10th in the table and carrying great form through to the New Year.

2016 will start with a trip to Sale for Hoppers on 2nd January with the two sides currently level on 31 points despite Hoppers sitting one place above their North West rivals.

As the main shirt sponsor of Hoppers for the 2015/16 season, haleys would like to wish the team all the best for the second half of the campaign in 2016. You can keep up to date with all the latest Hoppers news on www.pgrfc.co.uk.
