Craig Denton Side 600 x 424

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.
