HEYWOOD can clinch promotion back to the Greater Manchester Premier League with a victory at Stretford on Saturday.

Four teams will make the step up to the top flight, and, with just two games of the season left, Heywood are 11 points clear of fifth-placed Flowery Field.

Greenmount are top with 80 points, Heywood have 79, Woodhouses 76, Edgworth 73 and Flowery Field 68.

And the final game of the season on September 9 sees Greenmount come to Crimble in what could be a championship decider.

Heywood certainly have, on paper at least, one of their strongest-looking line-ups for some weeks for the Stretford trip, with Bobby Cross, Jack Morley, Wes Hunt and Kate Cross all available again.

The second team play the reverse fixture with Stretford the same day, and the third team are at home to Egerton on Sunday.

HEYWOOD 1st X1 v Stretford, away, Saturday (12.30): T Townsend (capt), R Cross, A Kerr, D Pawson, S Burrill, J Morley, W Hunt, D Latham, S Dawson, K Cross, C Kaye.

HEYWOOD 2nd X1 v Stretford, home, Saturday (1pm): M Grogan (capt), R Bennett, D Fawcett, M Witts, S Evans, C Booth, C Hilton, J Mills, H Vernon, J Keyworth, J Kaye. 12th men: W Taylor, L Jackson.

HEYWOOD 3rd X1 v Egerton, home, Sunday (1.30pm): D Fawcett (capt), M Witts, J Mills, H Vernon, W Taylor, T Pagett, O Thomas, L Jackson, J Kaye, R Purser, R Smethurst.
