A big evening beckons at Crimble on Saturday for the first Heywood side to play in a cup final this season.
The club’s under-15s – led by Ben Thulborn – booked their place in the the CLL/Lancs County League section of the National Knockout after defeating Norden at home on Monday.
They are unbeaten in six games so far this season – three in the league, two in the cup (one a bowl out) and the other a friendly. They face Royton for a chance to take on the winners of the Saddleworth League.
There was initially no game on Saturday at Crimble as there is only a T20 match at Middleton being staged out of the senior teams, but this game, which starts at 6pm, should make up for that.
The match starts at 6pm and the bar will not be open until 5pm.
It should be a good night.
They also face Walsden at home on Friday night, 6.15pm start. Players are asked to get down as early as possible.
Heywood CC U-15s (v Walsden, h, Friday. Start 6.15pm) B Thulborn, M Kay, H Bevan, K Nugent, J Mills, G Wall, D James, M Gibson, D Joesbury, S Zahid, J Ellis
