Saturday 4th November sees Harry Harris and his Hednesford team make the club’s first ever visit to Avro FC. This is Avro’s first season at step 4 having been promoted last season, beating Lincoln United in the inter-step play-offs after finishing as runners-up in the North West Counties League Premier Division.
Avro currently sit in 9th place in the Northern Premier League West Division with 17 points from 11 games. At home they’ve won twice (1-0 v Nantwich, 3-2 v Stalybridge), drawn three and lost just once (0-1 v City of Liverpool). Away from home they’ve picked up two wins, two draws and a defeat. Their 12 league goals have been shared around the team with Deane Smalley, Muis Bibire Bello and Liam Ellis all scoring twice.
Trafford’s 2-1 win over Nantwich on Tuesday night saw Hednesford return to the bottom of the league, two points behind Trafford and four adrift of City of Liverpool in 18 th place.
