In the words of Vera Lynn “We’ll meet again” possibly not "some sunny day" but a freezing Tuesday night at Sandygate….Either way we can't wait...
Up the Countrymen!!!
Hallam FC 1 – 2 Emley AFC
The Tuesday night visitors beneath the floodlights at Sandygate were high-flying Emley AFC. A Covid-capacity crowd of 300 welcomed both teams, with tickets having sold out on release day in a remarkable 46 minutes.
It was Emley who started the brighter but as the first half progressed Hallam began to find their rhythm, and started to exert pressure of their own. However in the 20th minute some hesitant Hallam defending in their own box led to a clumsy challenge, and Emley were awarded a penalty kick. Kyle Willis duly obliged for the visitors. 1 – 0 to Emley AFC.
A damp and overcast Saturday afternoon failed to subdue the spirits of the Sandygate faithful, and it was another Covid regulation sell-out crowd of 300 that welcomed the visitors, Nostell Miners Welfare.
The Sandygate faithful didn't have to wait long for Hallam to take the lead. In the 6th minute, an assist by Jack Brownell saw Kieren Watson hitting the back of the Nostell net. Nostell's insistence to play the ball out from goal kicks put their defence under pressure for much of the first half, as the Hallam forwards hovered on the edge of the box, ready to pounce on any mistake. This pressure was rewarded in the 15th minute when Christopher Wood capitalised on some poor Nostell play and scored a classic poacher's goal. 2 – 0 to the Hallam with just 15 minutes played.

Hallam FC 3 - 1 Parkgate
HT - 0-1
Att - 300
On another decidedly autumnal day at Sandygate, Hallam FC were the hosts of this second qualifying round of the FA Vase, with league rivals Parkgate the visitors. All 300 tickets for the match sold out in less than 24 hours, meaning that once again there was another impressive display of supporters.
The game got off to a lively start, with Hallam creating a good goal-scoring opportunity within the first minute. The Countrymen continued to have a strong first half, with only the final touch missing in order to convert chances into goals. Yet, in the 21st minute, it was Parkgate who struck first. A rebound off the Hallam 'keeper, David Reay, saw the ball fall to the feet of Frederick Tracey, who slotted it into the back of the net. As the half-time whistle blew the Steelmen were leading one nil, but there was still plenty of football left in this FA Vase tie, and all to play for.
It is with great sadness that we have heard of the sad passing of our dear friend Martin Westby. Martin was a proud Sheffielder, a renowned Sheffield author, and a great friend and supporter of Hallam Football Club.
He was a focus historian and a wonderful character to have around, his knowledge and passion for local football was unsurpassed by anyone. Martin loved everything about Sheffield and its football heritage and was so proud of the work he had done with The Sheffield Home of Football project including the brilliant Walking Tour App.
Our sincere condolences go to Martin’s wife, Judith, and the rest of his family at this very sad time. He will be sadly missed by all of his friends at Hallam Football Club and will always have a place not only in our history but also in our hearts.
Hallam FC 5 - 3 East Hull
HT - 4-1
Att - 300
After the opening games of the season being played in warm and sunny conditions, the weather decided to remind us all that the Oldest Football Ground in the World really is 'on top of the hill'! It was a misty, chilly, and rainy Saturday afternoon when the Countrymen welcomed East Hull FC to Sandygate.
The weather may have been dull and grey, but from the first minute this was a bright firecracker of a game! With barely sixty seconds on the clock, the first attack by East Hull forced Hallam 'keeper David Reay to make a fine save. In response, the ensuing Hallam attack saw Kieren Watson score a splendid headed goal, putting Hallam in the lead in only the third minute.
