Hednesford Town have received notification from Vanarama National League South side Oxford City that they have been forced to cancel next Saturday's friendly match between the two sides at the PRG Stadium @ Keys Park due to a COVID-19 outbreak in their ranks. This leaves the Pitmen without a game to wrap up their 2021 pre-season programme next weekend before they start their new Pitching In Southern Premier League campaign at home to Needham Market

Hednesford Town 0 Leamington 0
The Pitmen produced a much-improved performance this afternoon to hold Vanarama National League North side Leamington to a goalless draw at an overcast PRG Stadium @ Keys Park. Both sides had chances to win an entertaining encounter, with Leamington's former Hednesford stopper Jake Weaver and opposite number Andy Wycherley both enjoying good games between the sticks as the two sides and their supporters had to be content with a draw that was a good run-out for both sets of players

STAFFORD RANGERS 3 Hednesford Town 1
Hot on the heels on last night's 8-1 drubbing in a behind closed doors game against Aston Villa U23, a young and somewhat mixed Hednesford Xi is soundly beaten by local rivals Stafford Rangers at Marston Road this evening. Joe Cuff's early free-kick put Rangers in front before youngster Sam Mellor turned the ball into his own net to double the lead for the hosts. Reece Styche grabbed a goal early in the second half to reduce the deficit before Tom Carr's late header settled matters for the hosts

The Pitmen suffered the first defeat of their 2021 pre-season campaign as they are well beaten at the PRG Stadium @ Keys Park by Northern Premier Lague side Buxton. A finely-struck free-kick from Diego De Girolamo gave the away side the lead, with Warren Clarke doubling the Bucks lead before half-time to put them in a commanding position. Substitute Andre Brown reduced arrears for the Pitmen with his second goal in three games before De Girolamo scored again late on to seal the win for Buxton
