This was issued by Hallam FC this morning:
Following a pitch inspection at 10.00 am this morning (23rd December 2010), it is with great regret that the Boxing Day 150th Anniversary Match between Hallam FC & Sheffield FC at The Worlds Oldest Football Ground, Sandygate Road, Sheffield has had to be postponed due to a frozen pitch.
A date for the match to be played has been pencilled in for Good Friday the 22nd of April 2011 – which will round off Hallam FCs 150th Season.
ALL TICKETS PURCHASED FOR BOXING DAY WILL BE VALID FOR THE RE-ARRANGED DATE and we will keep you informed on confirmation of the fixture date as soon as we have approval from both Leagues.
Despite the huge disappointment of not being able to add this historic spectacle to your festive season Hallam FC would like to wish you and yours all the best for Christmas and The New Year and look forward to seeing you in April.
