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


Hednesford Town v Witton Albion

Friday 29/03/2024

Saturday 30th March sees Hednesford play the third of three consecutive home league games when Witton Albion are the visitors for the latest Northern Premier League West Division game. The Pitmen will be looking to end the month with them unbeaten in the league for March following the win against 1874 Northwich and draws with Vauxhall Motors and champions elect Leek Town. Witton sit in sixth place in the league table with 50 points from 32 games and a goal difference of -1. The majority of those points have been picked up at their Wincham Park home with nine wins, two draws and five defeats giving a return of 29 points while away from home they’ve picked up 21 points from six wins, three draws and seven losses. Their leading scorer is Connor Hughes with 12 league goals followed by Joe Duckworth with eight and
Harry Brazel with six.

It’s been a busy week at Keys Park with three players leaving for pastures new – Kieran Boucher to Boldmere St Michaels, Mike McGrath to Coleshill Town and Joe Thompson to Runcorn Linnets. Joining the club are Junior Brown and Matthew Barnes-Homer. Brown is a 34 year old left back/midfielder who links up with Hednesford from Whitchurch Alport having
played for a number of clubs, most notably Shrewsbury Town (89 appearances, six goals) and Coventry City (22 appearances) and was part of the squad that saw Fleetwood Town promoted into the Football League. While Barnes-Homer is a 38 year old striker with an impressive pedigree, counting among his previous clubs Luton Town and Kidderminster Harriers. He also has five England C caps, scoring twice against Poland Under 23’s and Belgium Under 23’s.
The game kicks off at 3pm with turnstiles and bars open at 1pm. Usual admission prices apply, Adults £11, concessions £8 and U16s £3. Car parking is £3.

Ahead of the game manager Paul Moore had the following to say; “Saturday’s game will be a tough one as both teams are in reasonable form, and with both fighting for points for very different reasons I’m sure it will be very entertaining. We go into the fixture have been very close to taking three points from the league leaders, only to miss out narrowly, but the performance from the boys was spot on.

We have Blaine Rowe nursing an injury but apart from that with two games over the Easter break we have a full squad to choose from. It was great to get our signings over the line before the deadline, Adriano, Matty and Junior all giving that experience and hopefully with the run in that will show.

We enjoyed a wet 50 mins friendly Tuesday and some boys who have not started got valuable minutes as we will need everyone I’m sure. We have six huge league games to go, we’ve given ourselves a fantastic chance of survival and we just need to believe over the next month it can be achieved.
A special mention must go out to you loyal supporters, coming in the hundreds on a wet Tuesday night for a friendly match, it is noticed and that lads really appreciate it. We are all working extremely hard to get a positive end to the season and I hope that you can see that, we want to communicate positively, and ensure we do this club proud. Enjoy the game and be loud”
