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


Hednesford Town v Nantwich Town

Sunday 24/12/2023

Following Saturday’s disappointing defeat at Trafford, Hednesford have a chance to bounce back in Boxing day’s home game with Nantwich Town. While Hednesford went down to a 1-0 loss at Trafford, Nantwich held high flying Avro to a 1-1 draw at the Weaver Stadium thanks to Paddy Lane’s 43rd minute equaliser in a game which saw The Dabbers pick up four yellow cards and a red for defender Troy Bourne.
Nantwich have seen some excellent runs in the FA Cup and Trophy this season which meant that they only played one league game in September and while their home form has seen them pick up the majority of their 21 points from three wins and three draws, their away form has returned just nine points following wins at 1874 Northwich (1-0), City of Liverpool (3-2) and Witton Albion (4-1) and six defeats. Their leading scorer is Byron Harrison with seven league goals.
Over the years there have been 13 games between the two sides with Hednesford winning six, drawing five and losing two. At Keys Park there have been three Northern Premier League wins for The Pitmen, one defeat and two draws plus a victory in the FA Trophy. One player fondly remembered by fans of both sides is Michael Lennon who became only the fourth player to score 100 goals for Nantwich before moving to Hednesford in 2012/13 where he helped the club to
promotion to the Skrill North. Over the course of two seasons, he made 28 starts for The Pitmen with another 48 as sub, scoring nine goals.
Tuesday 26th December for this Northern Premier League West fixture, the gates will open at 1pm for a 3pm kick off. Admission is £11 adults, £8 concessions, £3 under 16s with car parking at £3 and the award winning matchday programme available for £2.50.
