Lots of extra sand but no Goals for Hallam FC

Hallam FC 0 - 1 Penistone Church

Due to the recent weather this is the first game of 2023 at the Worlds Oldest Football Ground. Sandygate was playable with the addition of sand and the great work from the grounds team.

Hallam FC made the most of the game but were ultimately unable to put the ball in the Penistone net despite numerous attempts.

Penistone came out winners with a well worked move which caused confusion in the Hallam box leading to the only goal of the game.

Hallam (and the wind) defeat Handsworth

Hallam FC 2 - 0 Handsworth

Hallam FC welcomes Handsworth to the Worlds Oldest Football Ground. Its the last game of 2022 with Handsworth are a point above Hallam in the NCEL Premier Division.

This is the 3rd meeting this season, one league and one cup, with Handsworth taking the spoils in both previous games.

22 players on the field and a gusty wind from hell gave both goal keepers some challenging moments. Hallam FC came out victors with a couple of "wind assisted" crosses (or shots as the scorers will tell you).

The result takes Hallam FC above Handsworth and into 9th position in the league.

Hallam FC v Winterton Rangers Highlights

Hallam FC 1 - 2 Winterton Rangers 

Hallam FC entertain Winterton Rangers in the NCEL Premier game at the World's Oldest Football Ground. The fog played a great part in the game as did some interesting decisions by the officials. Difficult to capture the 2nd half as the visibility dropped but it's better than nothing.


Winter returns but 3 points leave

Hallam FC 2 -3 Silsden AFC

Silsden AFC made the long journey to Sandygate which was made longer by an incident on the M1 delaying kick off by 15 mins. Hallam FC were playing off the back of a 2-1 victory at Barton Town on Saturday and hoped to take points against a very inform side. The temperature was 1 degree at Sandygate but felt like -100, even the camerman was out of his shorts for the first time this season.

Hallam win the University Challenge

Capture.jpgNewcastle University FC 2 – 5 Hallam FC

FA Vase 1st Round

It proved to be a lovely sunny day for the predicted 3-hour journey to Prudhoe in Northumbria. As it turned out, the journey was extended due to “something or another” occurring further up on the A1 forcing a diversion across Durham and into places we thought we would never see or wanted to. As pretty as the area was, there was some anxiety building on the coach as the time started to tick towards 2:15pm and we still had not arrived. The coach driver got us there at 2:25pm, he skilfully negotiated through the country lanes and avoided the Mrs Miggins types driving their weekend transport at 15mph in a 60 zone.

Newcastle University Football Club are based in Newcastle upon Tyne. They are currently members of the Northern League Division Two and ground sharing with Prudhoe Youth Club some 15 miles west of Newcastle.

Tight game at South Liverpool but Hallam progress

South Liverpool v Hallam FC

South Liverpool FC 1 - 2 Hallam FC

Hallam FC book their place in the next round of the FA Vase after victory away to South Liverpool.

On arrival to the Jericho Lane sports centre the Hallam FC team and committee were greeted to one of the friendliest welcomes we have ever had. The wonderful set of volunteers at South Liverpool FC continued throughout the day to make our trip an enjoyable one. A great turn out by the Hallam FC faithful who travelled to Merseyside to watch the match. The countrymen certinely made their presents known during the game. 

On the pitch, the first half was tough for both sides as they tried to get the measure of each other. Hallam retained most of the possession in the South Liverpool half, but most chances were dealt with well by the South Liverpool defence.

The Countrymen see off Goole at Sandygate

Hallam FC 4 - 1 Goole AFC

v_Goole_AFC_600_x_332.jpgTo be honest, I didn't expect to be writing a match report tonight. What the rain of the last few days, I think most supporters were expecting to be sitting in front of the TV watching France v Australia with a pint or cuppa, rather than a bovril and a pie at Sandygate for Hallam v Goole. And also, the programme editor turns out to be very persuasive at getting others to write match reports at short notice. Ex estate agents eh? I'll get my own back...watch out Mike 👀

Bradbury Double Sees Hallam Progress in the FA Vase

0A9A7093Hallam FC 3 – 2 Ashton Athletic

The FA vase returns to the World’s Oldest Football Ground as Hallam FC host Ashton Athletic FC from the North West Counties Premier. This season the FA Vase is sponsored by Izuzu which interestingly translates as the noun for the verb disambiguate. (You will need to Google what that actually means)

A quick note for anyone who purchased a match day program. There was a minor error made naming Ashton Athletic, Ashton United. Given the rarity of mistakes in our match day programs, we suspect these could fetch a healthy sum in a few years so its worth keeping these in your safety deposit box for a rainy day.

Hallam bail out of the FA Cup

vBuryAFCBury 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.
