After a seven-week break Prestwich Heys report back for pre-season training next Tuesday in readiness for the North West Counties League 1st Division North season which begins on Saturday 3rd August.
With the possibility of four promotion places being up for grabs, Heys management team of Jon Lyons and Ryan Hutchinson will be looking for their side to hit the ground running when the season starts and they have lined up a strong pre-season schedule.
They will open their campaign at West Didsbury & Chorlton on July 2nd (7.15). The game will see Heys meet up with former goalkeeper Rob Sadler who has joined part of a new Management team at the club as they look to bounce back to the Premier Division after their relegation last season.
Heys will meet more familiar faces when they travel to play old friends and rivals AVRO on Wednesday 10th July (8pm) who were promoted to the Premier Division last season.
Heys kick off their home pre-season campaign against Atherton Collieries, who have just been promoted to the Evo Stik League Premier Division and will visit Adie Moran Park on Saturday 6th July.
On 13th July, Heys will travel to West Lancashire League Premier Division side Turton who have just won the Lancashire Amateur Shield as well as their League's Richardson Cup.
Evo Stik Premier Division Trafford have been regular visitors to Adie Moran Park in recent years and will do so again on Tuesday 16th July. This is followed seven days later by our now annual home fixture against a Bury XI.
On Saturday 27th July, Radcliffe FC visit Adie Moran Park. Of course, memories are still fresh of their last visit in the FA Cup last August which was televised by the BBC. Whilst it's unlikely there will be t.v. camera's present this time around the opportunity to lock horns with Jon Macken and Frank Sinclair's talented side, who have just been promoted to the Evo Stik Premier Division, represents a great challenge. The match will be form part of Heys Annual Family Day.
The pre-season fixtures so far are:
Tues 2nd July - West Didsbury &Chorlton (Away) 7.15pm
Sat 6th July - Atherton Collieries (Home) 3pm.
Weds 10th July - AVRO (Away) 8pm.
Sat 13th July - Turton (Away) 3pm.
Tues 16th July - Trafford (Home) 7.45pm.
