275 came out on a Wednesday night in North Rotherham to see Parkgate FC v Hallam FC. This was Parkgate’s biggest home crowd of the season and it was boosted by the 50 – 60 Countrymen who had made the journey over the Sheffield border. Parkgate FC has perhaps one of the nicest playing surfaces in the league, the friendly welcome and a quality sausage rolls makes the journey a convivial one.
The first few minutes of the game was a cagey affair with both teams trying to exploit each other defences, Parkgate had an early threat on the Hallam left side and that set the tone for Parkgate’s attacking strategy.

HALLAM FC 4 – 0 SWALLOWNEST FC
An impressive 314 supporters made the pilgrimage to the World's Oldest Football Ground for this Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup tie, played out on a Wednesday night beneath the Sandygate floodlights. Although the evening began bright and warm, as the sun dipped beneath the horizon and smoke wafted across the hallowed turf from a near-by gardener burning leaves, there were hints of the autumnal nights that will soon arrive. Following defeat in the FA Vase against Burscough FC at the previous weekend, Hallam were keen to return to their winning ways and make headway in a cup competition.
It was Hallam who made the brighter start, putting pressure on Swallownest and looking for an opening goal. In the 17th minute Liam Royles duly supplied that goal when his free kick from the edge of the area beat the Swallownest 'keeper at the near post.

Hallam FC 7 (seven) – 1 Shirebrook Town FC
There comes a time in a poor match reporter's life that he starts to run out of superlatives to describe what has been witnessed at a football game. This is one of those occasions. After witnessing Hallam's recent streak of wins, including casually dispatching opponents with seven and nine goal margins, and seeing the home crowd at Sandygate rise from the 200s to the 300s to the 400s, we arrived at a Tuesday night home fixture against Shirebrook Town FC. We couldn't be treated to another imperious Hallam display, could we? And the attendance couldn't beat the previous week's 412, could it?
How wrong we were to doubt! Once again Hallam not only produced the goods, but over-produced and gave us a little extra just to be sure! And the Hallam faithful, making the trek to Sandygate on a Tuesday night, not only played their part, but surpassed it; a frankly staggering 605 people passing through the gates before kick off!
Hallam FC 4 – 0 Retford FC
Another Tuesday night at Sandygate brought the Hallam faithful out in remarkable numbers, a crowd of 412 making the pilgrimage to the World’s Oldest Football Ground! The opponents were Retford FC, and following Hallam’s goal fest in recent back-to-back victories, there was a buzz of expectancy in the evening air!
Hallam began the game well, dominating play and looking dangerous. A Hallam corner in the 15th minute was whipped into the box, and it was Julian Lawrence who rose high above the Retford defence to head the ball into the back of the net.
On 30 minutes, Iren Wilson was unlucky not to add his name to the score sheet when his shot hit the underside of the Retford bar. Somehow the ball contrived to not bounce over the line, and so the score remained at 1 – 0.

FC Humber 2 – 9 Hallam FC
On a wonderful sunny August day Hallam FC travelled to the FPH Stadium, the home of Selby FC to play FC Humber (who are currently ground sharing). Hallam, playing in their yellow away kit were slow to get a rhythm into their game and after 15 minutes of play it was FC Humber who took the initiative. The Hallam keeper Walker picked up the ball following an adjudged back pass and the resulting indirect freekick was fired into the top left corner of Walkers goal 1-0.
Five minutes later Walker made amends by stopping a well taken shot following a good passage of play to deny FC Humber doubling their lead.
Hallam FC 7 (seven) – 0 Hall Road Rangers
In a night that will linger long in the memory of the 352 crowd who were there to witness it, Hallam FC scored seven goals against Hall Road Rangers in a remarkable second half blitzkrieg.
The warning signs had been there during the first half, as Hallam dominated for long periods without managing to breach the Hall Road defence. However as the second half kicked off in the fading light of a pleasantly mild Sandygate evening, it was Brandon Bradbury who opened the scoring when, in the 48th minute, he created the space he needed to fire the ball into the back of the Hall Road net.
