Tonight's Birmingham Senior Cup fixture at HOME against Romulus has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.


Kings Langley v Hednesford Town

Saturday 12/11/2022

Hednesford Town are back on the road today after a glut of home games when they travel to Hertfordshire to play Kings Langley.
This is an important meeting between two of the division’s bottom three teams and both teams are at the bottom of the form table too with the Pitmen gaining three points from their last six league games and their hosts only one. Kings Langley have not won a league game since 29th August in a run stretching eight games and perhaps surprisingly neither team is in the bottom five in the table of goals conceded. Their leading goalscorers in the league are midfielder Cain Keller and striker Kennedy Feyi who have three goals each. Kings Langley have also made it through two rounds of the FA Trophy with away wins against Ashford United and Carshalton Athletic. The next round sees The Kings at home to National League North outfit AFC Telford United next Saturday. They are managed by Chris Cummins who was appointed to his first managerial job in English football in October 2019 having held senior development roles at Watford, Luton and Reading as well as a stint as head coach of Toronto.
The village of Kings Langley is located just north of Watford and therefore it is the most southerly football club in the Southern League Premier Division Central. They even had one season in the Southern League Premier Division South last season having successfully applied for a lateral move but they finished 20th before being moved back to the Central for this season.
The Pitmen have an almost fully fit and available squad apart from long term injured Riley O’Sullivan, and although Chris Clements managed a light training session last night it will still be a couple of weeks before he is realistically able to play, and since we last played the squad has been trimmed with the release of experienced defender Ben Bailey and striker Ryan Nesbitt.
The Pitmen have had some good results of late in the FA Trophy and we really need to start putting those results together in a run of league games and as far as the confidence of the squad goes the management team said: “The mood in the camp is tremendous, the lads have trained twice this week and have really been at it. As a collective we all want the same thing and that is to get this football club out of the position it is in at the moment and we all firmly believe that we can do that.”
With the release of four players in November and only one coming it may be that more new arrivals could be expected and on this the management team said: We are happy with the squad but that doesn’t mean that we are not looking to improve it as there are still a couple of areas where we think we can improve and as a management team we are working hard to get the players in to fill those places.”
Kick off is at 3pm and the ground address is: The Orbital Fasteners Stadium, Hempstead Road, Kings Langley, Hertfordshire, WD4 8BS.
