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


Nantwich Town v Hednesford Town

Sunday 31/03/2024

It’s two games in three days for Hednesford when they make the short trip over the border to Cheshire on Monday April 1st where they will face Nantwich Town in their latest Northern Premier League West Division fixture. On Good Friday Nantwich came away from Runcorn Linnets with a creditable goalless draw while 24 hours later Hednesford gave their survival hopes a boost with a 3-0 win over play-off chasing Witton Albion.

Current form sees Nantwich in second place with 13 points from six games while Hednesford’s improved recent performances have moved them up to ninth with eight points from six games. In the league table proper Nantwich are in ninth place with 48 points from 33 games, some five points adrift of City of Liverpool in the final play-off place while
Hednesford know that a win on Monday coupled with defeat for Trafford against Avro would move them out of the bottom two.

Back on Boxing Day Hednesford edged out Nantwich in a five goal thriller at Keys Park. Byron Harrison’s opener was cancelled out by Daniel Gyasi before Jake Kirby restored The Dabbers’ advantage only for Jai Verma to equalise in the 85 th minute. The Pitmen’s winner came in the last minute via a Tom Thorley penalty which saw Troy Borne sent off for the
visitors, his fourth red card of the season. Nantwich’s home form is much better than their away record, having picked up 30 points from 16 games at home and 18 from 17 away. At home they have won nine, drawn three and lost four- to Clitheroe (1-2), Newcastle town (0-1), Widnes (0-2) and Leek (1-3). Their leading scorer is Byron Harrison with 14 goals.

Both squads will show some changes from the ones that took to the field on Boxing Day and Hednesford’s only injury doubt will be Blaine Rowe who went off with a tweaked hamstring against Leek and missed Saturday’s game. Nantwich play at The Swansway Stadium, Waterlode, Nantwich, Cheshire CW5 5BS which is situated off Chester Road. It has a capacity of 2,640 (343 seated) and was first opened in 2007 when it was known as the Weaver Stadium. The club installed a 3G artificial surface at the ground in time for the start of the season.

Admission is £11 Adults, £8 over 60s and £3 U16s with an extra £1 charged for seating in the Kingsbourne and Malbank ends. Tickets can be purchased online via the Nantwich website or by cash/card at the gate. Kick off is 3pm.
