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


Hednesford Town v City of Liverpool

Friday 26/01/2024

Saturday 27th January sees another team making their first visit to Keys Park when City of Liverpool FC come down from Merseyside for this weekend’s Northern Premier League West Division fixture against Hednesford Town.

Both teams go into the game after a break. Hednesford were without a fixture last Saturday and then their Walsall Senior Cup tie at Tividale in midweek was postponed while City of Liverpool’s game against Widnes was postponed late due to unforeseen circumstances last Saturday meaning neither side have been in action since January 13th. The recent form of both teams is very similar with The Pitmen picking up 11 points from their last six games and The Purps’ gaining 10 points from their six.

City of Liverpool sit in 11th place in the league table with 31 points from 22 matches, 18 of those points have come at home with 13 points being gained on their travels. They have won four times away from home, beating Avro 1-0, Runcorn Linnets 2-1, Bootle 2-0 and Kidsgrove 3-0, drawing 1-1 at Widnes and losing six times against Clitheroe (0-2), Vauxhall Motors (2-3), Prescot Cables (1-2), Stalybridge Celtic (2-4), Leek Town (0-1) and Witton Albion (0-1). Of their 38 league goals ten have been scored by Josh Quarless and nine by Callum Schorah.

Although Hednesford can welcome back Max Martin for a second loan spell from Solihull Moors and James McQuilkin from suspension they will still be missing Lucas Yeomans, Daniel Gyasi and Sam Griffiths with long term injuries.

Manager Harry Harris is expecting a tough game, “In recent weeks we’ve been difficult to play against on our own patch, we are creating opportunities and taking them as well, but City of Liverpool pose a danger, they won all of their league games in December, so we need the fans to roar on the lads from the first minute until the last”.

Saturday’s game kicks off at the usual time of 3pm with turnstiles and bars open at 1pm. Admission is £11 adults, £8 concessions, £3 under 16s and car parking at £3. The multi award winning programme will be available for £2.50.
