This Saturday Hednesford Town make their second journey up to Yorkshire inside a week as we make the long trip north to Whitby Town.
Our most recent journey to Whitby came in October last year when two Jordan Graham goals saw the Pitmen return home with a share of the points. You have to go back to November 2012 for the last time that we picked up three points from the Turnbull Ground, albeit we have only played there twice since, when we triumphed 2-0.
Whitby have picked up seven points from four games so far this season and currently sit in fifth place in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League table.
Manager Rob Smith said:
“I’m looking forward to what is always a difficult fixture, even more so as Whitby have had a very good start to the season.
“We come into this game off the back of a good result at Farsley, and the challenge now is to back that up with another win.
“The spirit in the group is fantastic, so we go there in confident mood, but as always very aware of the dangers the opposition possess.”
Smith will still be without midfielder Reece King – who sits out the final game of a three-match ban – but his squad numbers have been boosted this week by the arrival of Lewis Archer from Rushall Olympic.
The game kicks off at 3pm and we’d like to thank those Hednesford supporters who are making the long journey up to North Yorkshire for the fixture.
