HEYWOOD’S first team face a double header of League and Cup action at the weekend.

They travel to familiar territory on Saturday when they take on Unsworth in their latest Premier Division outing in the Greater Manchester League (12 30pm).

And on Sunday they entertain Elton in the first round of the Derek Kay Per-Fit Cup (1pm).

England women’s international Kate Cross is available on Saturday and, with Simon Dawson out both days, makes her first Heywood senior outing of the season at Unsworth.

The other change sees the return of Wes Hunt for Liam Mason, who is also unavailable.

Mason returns in place of Kate Cross for the Cup game on Sunday (1pm), when 16-year-old Joe Humphreys makes his senior bow after impressing in 2nd X1 and 3rd X1 outings. He joins his older brother Dominic and dad Chris, the skipper, in the line-up to make it a fine family occasion.

The other player making way is 14-year-old Jack Morley, who is involved in a North of England trials game.

The 2nd X1 are in Crimble action on Saturday (1pm), when they will be hoping to score their first win of their Division Three season against Prestwich.
