Heywood start their league campaign with a tough fixture at Littleborough on Sunday.

Although new pro Farhaan Behardien has yet to arrive after being held up by visa problems, the club are still hopeful he’ll be here for the start of the season.

On Saturday, there’s an interesting first team friendly at home to Prestwich. If the CLL and LCL eventually choose to sit down and talk mergers, the North Manchester club could be a league fixture in a few years.

Dale Latham smashes a full toss for fourHeywood enjoyed their pre-season work-out at a cold and wind-blown Enfield on Sunday.
