HEYWOOD IRISH CENTRE (formerly the Irish Centre) are back in action in the FA Sunday Cup on October 14.
The club made their debut in the competition last season and went out in the second round 3-0 to Liverpool side Canada FC at AFC Emley’s Welfare Ground, after previously beating Durham side Stanley Royal 2-1, also at Emley.
The club will be hoping that last year’s experience will prove beneficial this time and that they can progress even further.
Their first-round match this time in this Carlsberg-sponsored competition is against another Liverpool side, Sandstone, and will again be played at the Welfare Ground, 2.00.
The club are looking for sponsorship for the match, with match-day and ball sponsors high on the list. There is also space to have an advert in the programme.
If any company or person is interested in backing the club in this competition in any way they should contact 01422 310399 or e-mail email@example.com for further details.
