And now there will be action on the hallowed turf, too, starting with a join 1st and 2nd X1 team game of either 40 or 50 overs against neighbours Middleton on Saturday (1.30pm).
On Sunday it will be the turn of a joint 2nd and 3rd X1 side to take to the field in a 40 overs-per side outing against fellow Greater Manchester League side Worsley.
The senior game on Saturday will give local supporters their first chance to see Amar Ullah, who was recruited as Heywood’s new professional for the scheduled 2020 campaign before the pandemic ruled out action in the regular season.
There will be restricted seating room in the newly-adapted pavilion, and anyone wishing to book one of the limited number of tables should ring 07747-444915.This is a text only phone.
