Heanor Town joint manager Glenn Kirkwood was in a positive mood as he ran the rule over the weekend’s events.

“We had an excellent two-hour training session on Saturday morning, out of which came the boost that Daniel Fields, Stef Frost, Graham Wells and Dwayne Wiley have all made sufficient progress from their injuries to be involved in Saturday’s home game against Parkgate, on the Town Ground.

“Wells and club coach Danny Cox both had a run-out with the Reserves last Saturday afternoon.

“Stef Frost was also in the frame for a game, but decided to give his ankle a few more days rest after the morning’s training. We have a very tough set of fixtures in December and we shall need all the players fit.There is the possibility of heavier grounds and we have to face title chasing teams of the calibre of Tadcaster Albion, Bridlington Town, Staveley Miners Welfare and Brighouse Town (twice) before our first New Year game at home to Retford United.”

The 12th Man Heanor Town Supporters Club will be running a coach to the game at Tadcaster for the game there a week on Saturday.

There are still a few seats left on a first come, first served basis. The coach leaves the Town Ground at 12.30pm and will return to Heanor by 7.30pm.

The price for 12th Man members is £5 and for non-members it is £10.

Anyone interested in taking up the last few seats should contact Supporters Club members at Saturday’s home game against Parkgate (3pm start).

Heanor Town Football Club has organised a Community Christmas Fayre on the Town Ground, on Wednesday, December 12m from 6pm until 9.30pm.

There will be a number of exciting features including Santa’s Grotto, Pinxton Puppets, several craft stalls and live music by The Pitz. Admission charges are £3 for adults, £1.50 for 12-16 year olds and under 12s free. Tickets are available from Amanda Jones.

Heanor Reserves will play the return Central Midlands League game at Dinnington Town Reserves on Saturday (3pm)
