There’s a big weekend of cricket ahead for all the club’s senior teams.
On Saturday, it’s the start of the T20 and Heywood travel to Middleton (2pm start). Heywood reached the semi-finals last season, only to lose to Littleborough, and will be tested on the excellent Towncroft pitch.
It’s another chance for Andy Dawson to show his prowess in the shorter form of the game and promises to be an exciting game against one of our biggest and best rivals.
On Sunday, we’re away again, at Norden, for a league match which will be Heywood’s biggest test yet against a very good Norden side.
Norden beat Littleborough – the side who ended Heywood’s unbeaten start to the season – in the Wood Cup last week and are running into form.
The seconds entertain Norden at Crimble, with a Norden side bolstered by the addition of several players to the senior squads including ‘Beamer’ – the second-team superstar from Unsworth. He is always a thorn in anyone’s side, but at least Crimble offers some protection against his big hitting.
It’s also a busy weekend for the thirds, who blend a smattering of experience with a lot of talented young players from the junior teams.
They travel to Astley and Tyldesley on Sunday, then face a big test at Deane and Derby on Bank Holiday Monday.
