The Latest News and Reviews from Sandygate
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 manager Craig Denton has expressed that the family-friendly atmosphere that we provide around the club can help us push forward, both on and off the pitch.
Earlier we spoke to Craig to get his views on the club as a whole and his ambitions for the future.
Craig stated, “For me, I’m someone who is looking to come into a great well-run club like Hallam FC. The big pull is their attendances and they are fantastic.
“That is down to Hallam playing a pivotal role in the community, who have a great affiliation with grassroots teams. There are Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday fans who are more than happy to come and watch a football match at Hallam when they have no fixtures.

Official statement from Steve and Jane Basford....
After 10 years at Hallam F.C., with 5 years as Chairman and Vice-Chairman, Jane and I have decided to step down from our roles.
This is something that, we, along with the President and new Chairman, have been working towards for some months and we felt that the time was now right, not just for ourselves, but also for the club itself.
I am 100% certain that my successor Richard Pillinger will now take the club on to even bigger and better things in the future, along with the support of the amazing team that we have created to run this fantastic club.We have all, Staff, Managers, Players and you, our fantastic supporters, created something very special at Sandygate which is now truly a family club, firmly fixed in the local community.I know that Richard is determined to carry this on in the future, along with our commitment to carry on raising funds for local charities, as we have in the past 10 years.
