TOM McQuinn will make his Heywood debut in Saturday’s first game of the Greater Manchester Premier League season.

The 28-year-old Australian opening bowler landed in England on Monday and goes straight into the senior side for a testing opener against champions Flixton at Crimble (12.30).

McQuinn plays alongside Riley Paterson for Melbourne area club side Croydon, and they now team up again in Heywood colours.

The 23-year-old Paterson, whose girlfriend Elly is McQuinn’s brother, was Heywood’s overseas amateur in 2013 and 2014.

The second team face a trip to Failsworth Macedonia in Division Four East  (1pm).

HEYWOOD 1st X1 (v Flixton, home, Saturday, 12.30pm): T Townsend (capt), R Cross, A Kerr, D Pawson, J Morley, S Burrill, R Paterson, A Dawson, D Latham, S Dawson, T McQuinn.

HEYWOOD 2nd X1 (v Failsworth Macedonia, away, Saturday, 1pm): S Evans, W Hunt, R Bennett, C Kaye, C Booth, J Kaye, L Clarkson, H Vernon, C Hilton, T Pagett, W Taylor.
