Away win sets up Hallam relegation decider

League table
NCEL table: Hallam and Arnold are both on 27 points with one game remaining

A 2-1 victory at Liversage yesterday for Hallam FC has set up an end-of-season finale away at Arnold Town on Tuesday night to decide which club will be relegated.

Both teams are level on 27 points, but the Crosspool club go into the match needing a win to stay up due to their inferior goal difference.

One other team will join Dinnington Town in relegation to Northern Counties East League division one.

Big week starts with defeat for Countrymen

Despite taking a first half lead through Martin Brissett, Hallam FC’s week of three home games began on Saturday with a 4-1 defeat to Lincoln Moorlands Railway.

The Countrymen’s next outing is the derby match against Dinnington Town tonight at Sandygate, who are just two places above them in the league.

As the Crosspool club’s Twitter account mentions, Sandygate is the place to be to see lots of goals: there have been 25 in their last five home games. Unfortunately, only three have been for Hallam!
