Bury AFC 1 - 0 Hallam FC
A good number of countrymen travelled across the Snake Pass to Bury to see the replay of Saturdays goalless draw. Bury AFC formed only 3 years ago following the collapse of Bury FC, they currently play their home games at Radcliffe FC from The Northern Premier League.
The game was another cagey affair which was largely dominated by the Bury AFC attack and the resilient Hallam FC defence keeping the score level by Halftime. Hallam had a number of interesting penetration into the Bury AFC half but rarely found a player who was able to take a shot at goal. Bury AFC on the other hand found plenty of opportunity to score but, as in the first match, failed to find the correct finishing touch.
Hallam FC 0 – 0 Bury AFC
This Emirates FA Cup first preliminary round saw the second oldest club in the world take on one of the youngest clubs, as Hallam FC took on the newly-formed Bury AFC. Bury AFC were, of course, formed out of the ashes of Bury FC who were controversially expelled from the football league in 2019. Bury AFC have inherited many of the old Bury FC's support, and as a result there was a bumper crowd in excess of 1100 inside Sandygate for this cup tie, with Bury bringing with them over 300 travelling supporters, who were in fine voice throughout the game.
We have had several requests to see if we could set up a subscription feature for our matchday programme so that supporters can ensure they do not miss an issue if they are unable to attend a game.
Our new programme, albeit after a complete overhaul, is to remain at the previous price of £2 and is anticipated to be of 28 pages per issue.
We have 19 home league games together at the moment with 2 Cup games (FAC & FA Vase) and we propose to do a great deal of £35 for the season to cover all these games.
Subscribers will also obtain a further benefit if we have further home games at Sandygate in these competitions as well as any NCEL Cup & S&H Cup. These programmes will be supplied free of charge

Hallam FC 2 – 1 Clipstone FC
On a day the likes of which probably haven’t been witnessed in living memory, 1179 supporters made their way into the World’s Oldest Football Ground on a day of footballing celebration. Hallam FC had already just about guaranteed promotion from NCEL Division One as champions, barring a highly improbable mathematical disaster, and so this game was a chance for everyone connected with the club to let their hair down and celebrate.
The opposition was Clipstone FC who, languishing in the relegation zone, arrived with their own battles to fight, and their own reasons to try and upset the Hallam party atmosphere. Pleasant springtime sunshine greeted the kick off, and the Hallam fans were in fine voice, providing unwavering support and atmosphere throughout the game.
