Heywood host Littleborough on Saturday and Rochdale on Sunday on the back of some excellent performances.

Having beaten Boro at Hare Hill two weeks ago, Danny Pawson’s side then beat Walsden at Crimble on Saturday, before just missing out on victory at a wet Norden on Sunday.

Pro Tom Cullen is in fine form, and with the amateur attack showing some form themselves, it should be a good weekend in prospect.

The seconds will be looking for at least one win when they travel to Hare Hill and host Rochdale.

The thirds play a 20/20 at Towncroft on Friday, then travel to Stand on Monday.

Heywood CC 1st XI (v L’Boro, h, Saturday, v Rochdale, a Sunday. Start 1pm) D Pawson, B Cross, A Dawson, S Dawson, C Booth, R Paterson, H Naeem, W Hunt, J Lovell, C Kaye, T Cullen. Sunday: D Latham replaces J Lovell.
