On Saturday 26th August Hednesford will make their first ever visit to Widnes for their next Northern Premier League West Division game.
Hednesford have won one, drawn one and lost one of their three league games so far which sees them in 10th place in the league table while their opponents have one win and two defeats and lie in 14th spot. Their win came in their first home game, a 2-0 victory over Bootle. Matt Van Wyk scored both goals which are their only league goals so far. Last season Widnes finished in 17th , only avoiding the Step 4/5 Inter-League Play-offs due to Skelmersdale not meeting ground grading requirements and their superior points per game ratio compared to other teams around the country.
