Back in action: Hamish Paterson

A NEW face will get his first test of competitive action for Heywood Cricket Club on Saturday.

Joe Lovell, an 18-year-old all-rounder, will be in the first team squad for the opening friendly against Bury at Crimble (noon).

Lovell, an off-spinner who is also a useful lower order batsman, came through the junior ranks at Royton before having a season at Milnrow last year.

Making a return to the club in time for the game will be Australian overseas amateur Hamish Paterson, the 20-year-old opening bowler from Melbourne who proved himself a popular acquisition in 2011.

The action starts earlier than normal at the request of the visitors, but a second team game against Bury – also at Crimble – the following day will get under way at 1pm.

Heywood CC 1st XI v Bury (h, 12pm): R Cross (c), R Zelem, D Pawson (wk), W Hunt, L Grogan, J Lovell, H Patterson, A Fawcett, H Naeem, C Kaye, R Slawson. Meet 11am

Heywood CC 2nd XI v Bury (h, 1.30pm): R Smethurst (c), T Blundell, W Hunt, D Latham, A Dawson, S Dawson, C Booth, S Burrill, R Purser, S Jones (wk), A Fawcett. Meet 12.45pm.
