Following recent gossip in both local media and on social media Heywood CC Chairman, John Rhodes, has asked for the following statement to be issued to club members:

“The committee of Heywood Cricket Club would like to assure members and supporters that despite recent rumours online the club has made no enquiry, formal or otherwise, to any other league structure nor is it the intention of the club to be anything other than 100% committed to our future in the Greater Manchester Cricket League.”

“The decision to move into the new structure was taken after lengthy consultation with players and members and at an open club meeting those present voted overwhelmingly in favour of the move.”

“Since joining the new league we have been extremely impressed with the levels of communication, engagement and consultation from the administrators and our relegation from the Premier division has proven that we moved to a higher standard of cricket. We were thoroughly impressed with the other clubs that we visited in 2016 and we look forward to a new series of rivalries this summer.”

“No official of the club has made any approach to any other league and we are fully committed to a bright future in the GMCL and our immediate focus is on attaining promotion back to the Premier division and continuing to create an environment where young players can continue to develop to the best of their abilities.”

John Rhodes, Club Chairman
