Date published: 28 June 2019

Heywood bid to extend their winning Greater Manchester League run in a crunch Crimble clash on Saturday.

Glodwick have 35 points; Denton West are second with 34 points; Glossop, Heywood and Flowery Field have 33 points.

It’s the last game in the first half of the season and victory for the locals will leave them well placed for a promotion push in the second half.
