Hednesford Town are hosting Lowestoft Town at the PRG Stadium, Keys Park on Saturday in the Pitching-In Premier League. The board of directors are inviting all youngsters under the age of 15 to attend the game completely free of charge. Under 18s are also free if accompanied by a paying adult.
Chairman Graham Jones explained; “This could be the first opportunity you may have of experiencing the joy of football live, being so close to the action. For anyone who has never been to visit before, its a fantastic day out to have with your friends and families, and its never a better time than to get behind your local club and watch a live game. All you need to do is to rock up at the PRG Stadium, as gates open at 1pm and kick off is at 3pm and remember to bring your singing voices to get behind the Pitmen for the game. Bars are open from 1pm (for the parents of course), along with the burger vans and club shop. So get yourselves down, bring your friends, families, sons, daughters, brothers and sisters, cousins, your next door neighbours, absolutely everyone you can bring along and lets make some noise together. After the game also, Strikers Bar will remain open until late to all fans, to stay and enjoy a drink with us all.”
Lowestoft Town, currently in 17th place have had a difficult start to the season, but the Trawlerboys did record a win against Stratford Town last time out. The Pitmen will be looking to get back to winning ways after two narrow away defeats, seeing them slip to fourth place. Ahead of the game boss Keenen Meakin-Richards commented; “Lowestoft’s results have improved in the last couple of games and we know it will be a tough game. I am looking for a response from the lads to get another unbeaten run going, we will stick with our philosophy, stay strong and be confident that with the right decisions the results will come.”
Jed Davies will be out of action until the New Year, George Cater will be out for another five weeks and Ryan Price for another two or three. Sam Griffiths remains unavailable through injury, while Courtney Richards will miss out for a fortnight due to the concussion he sustained on Tuesday night. Carter Lycett and Joshveer Shergill both picked up knocks on Tuesday but should be fit to join the squad on Saturday.
