The Pitmen travel across the border into Wales today as we take on Newtown AFC of the Welsh Premier League in another pre-season friendly.
Our opponents have lost only once in five outings so far and are unbeaten at home, so today will be a stern test for the squad, especially on the 3G pitch, as both Rob Smith and Larry Chambers take over the reigns once again following their summer breaks.
Doubtless there will be some trialists in the squad still looking to ‘seal a deal’ as the season for real draws ever closer, while the Robins are likely to include four ex-Pitmen players including Jay Denny and Ben Bailey – the latter recently making the move to the Welsh side.
Hopefully a number of Hednesford fans will be able to make the 70 mile journey to Latham Park as we look to continue our pre-season build-up.
Remember that the match kicks-off at 2.30pm
