HEYWOOD’S proposed first team friendly at Middleton on Saturday (April 9) has been cancelled.

Towncroft, like many other clubs, has taken a battering during the winter and Heywood have been informed by their neighbours that it will not be fit for the weekend.

Heywood have a double header of friendlies scheduled for Crimble on Saturday and Sunday, firstly with the second team at home to Bamford Fieldhouse and then the first team entertaining Norden the following day.

However, the weather forecast is unpromising and the ground took another significant amount of rain over the weekend, which curtailed much-needed external painting work during Saturday’s NatWest CricketForce day.

The groundsman and the Ground Committee are monitoring conditions on the playing area, which may affect Friday night’s scheduled junior training session, so keep in touch with the website for news of prospects for the weekend.

Volunteers who turned out for CricketForce still helped with some vital maintenance, including:

+ Re-assembling of the covers and bringing in recently purchased additional second-hand covers.

+ Repairs to the artificial nets.

+ Foundations for the assembly of outdoor nets on the playing area.

+ Assembly of seats surrounding the ground.

+ Filling in potholes on the car park.

+Painting in the cellar and changing rooms.

+ Partial painting of the sightscreens.

+ Ladies undertaking vital work in the pavilion lounge and kitchen.

Meanwhile, the Club was well populated on Sunday afternoon when it was opened early for the World Twenty20 Cricket World Cup final.

A good crowd of members was treated to an exciting game, food was provided by the ladies and the venture was deemed a big success – despite the result of the final!
