HEYWOOD bid to extend their winning Greater Manchester League run in a crunch Crimble clash on Saturday.
The senior side have won their last four games in Division 1A and now entertain top-of-the-table Glodwick, whom they trails by just two points.
Glodwick have 35 points; Denton West are second with 34 points; Glossop, Heywood and Flowery Field have 33 points.
It’s the last game in the first half of the season and victory for the locals will leave them well placed for a promotion push in the second half.
The second team also need a victory when they go to Stand the same day. They are second bottom of Division 3 East and need to starting picking up points if they are to avoid relegation.
Sunday sees the third team travel to Worsley for a second round game in the Sunday Plate, re-arranged after being postponed from last weekend.
