HEYWOOD are to stage a T20 event commemorating the life of one of the best products of their youth system.

Tom Hardman 20/20 day will be at Crimble on Bank Holiday Monday, May 27, and will feature Heywood, Middleton, Norden and Rochdale.

The inaugural version what is hoped will become an annual event, rotated around the grounds of the four competing clubs, was set to be staged at Middleton at the end of last August but was washed out.

Although details and the draw have yet to be finalised, it is planned that the first game will start in mid-morning, the second early in the afternoon and the final later in the day.

Keep in touch with this site for news of final arrangements.

Tom passed away suddenly six years ago at the age of 21.
