TWO new faces will feature in the first team as Heywood sides prepare for their opening games of the new Greater Manchester Cricket League season at the weekend.

Overseas amateur Jayden Borg, who has arrived from top Melbourne area club Carlton, will take the over the wicketkeeping role and undoubtedly  feature high in the order as a left-handed batsman as the first team prepare to take on Glossop in the inaugural Premier League clash at Crimble (12.30).

Chris Thomas is a new signing from Prestwich and expected to bat in the middle order. He is also reported to be an outstanding fielder and will add to Heywood’s already considerable expertise in that department.

The game also sees the first game as skipper for Chris Humphreys and the club’s professional for Danny Pawson.

 Heywood 1st Xl (v Glossop, home, Saturday, meet at club at 11.30 for a 12.30 start): C Humphreys (capt), R Cross, L Mason, D Humphreys, S Burrill, C Thomas, W Hunt, J Borg, J Morley, S Dawson, D Pawson (pro).

The second team, led by the club’s long-serving all-rounder Chris Kaye, are at Denton West for a Division Three fixture (1pm) and also have a debut boy in Joe Humphreys, younger son of Chris.

Heywood 2nd XL (v Denton West, away, Saturday, meet at club at 11.30 for a 1pm start): C Kaye (capt), A Fawcett, A Dawson, J Humphreys, D Fawcett, R Smethurst, C Booth, J Mills, M Grogan, J Keyworth, R Purser.

  The third team start their campaign in the North East Division on Sunday at home to Unsworth (2pm), when the side will be led by Adam Fawcett.

 Heywood 3rd Xl (v Unsworth, home, Sunday, meet at club at 12.45 for a 2pm start): A Fawcett (capt), S Evans, K Nugent, M Witts, E Harding, J Humphreys, J Mills, C Hilton, Jacob Kaye, D Campbell, J Morley.

  1. Always an exciting time of year anticipating the first match of the season and I really miss being around the club at such a time. Must be particularly so this year with the new adventure being taken in the GMCL. Whilst I’m still playing nearly all year round in the warmth of Bahrain, I still envy those lucky enough to be playing on the hallowed Crimble turf.
    Good luck to all for a successful and enjoyable season!
