It’s another huge weekend of cricket for the club as they continue to chase silverware on all fronts.

On Saturday, the first team continue their pursuit of Walsden in the league with a visit to Norden.

They won a thriller at Woodhouse Lane earlier in the season, but have lost twice at home to Norden when they failed to perform at their best.

On Sunday, it’s a trip into the unknown as they travel to Barnoldswick in the LCB KO Cup.

This game has been fraught with problems from the off, and even getting there – let alone trying to park – will be problematic due to a major cycle race being held on the same day.

Still, buoyed by the JW Lees Wood Cup win and good form in the cup so far, it’s a game we are well capable of winning.

It’s an even bigger weekend for the seconds as they go in search of their first Burton Cup win since 1996.

They came so close last year, losing to Middleton, and face an even stiffer task away at Walsden on Sunday.

The villagers will be smarting from the first team’s loss in the Wood Cup, and will be determined to do better.

However, Heywood are at full strength and if they perform to their best are more than a match for the Scott Street side.

There is also a third team game at Crimble on Sunday, when they entertain Stand.

The club is stretched to the max for these games, and the support of everyone at all three matches will be vital for success.
