Non-League Day, the annual, national celebration of grass roots football, is coming to Sandygate for the first time on Saturday 10 October. 

On international weekend, with no Premiership or Championship games, local non-league clubs take centre stage.

After five consecutive years of away matches on non-league day, Hallam finally get the chance to celebrate the day as Hemsworth Miners Welfare visit for a 3pm kick off.

The match will be free entry for season ticket holders from ALL other clubs, and there will be plenty of fun for all the family, including a crossbar challenge at half time for the chance to win a copy of Football Manager, plus other competition prizes. 

Crosspool Junior U8s team will be guests for the game and the club will also be supporting non-league day’s partner charity Prostate Cancer UK.

Entry is free to season ticket holders from any club (on production of a 2015-16 season ticket), £5 for adults and £2 for concessions (under-16s, over-65s, students on production of ID).

Hallam FC have started the new season in the Baris Northern Counties East Football League Division One, following relegation in May.

They kicked off with a 1-0 defeat at local rivals Handsworth and then last night lost 2-0 to  Hemsworth Miners Welfare.

The Countrymen’s first match at Sandygate isn’t until 20 September when they host Appleby Frodingham in the Wilkinson Sword Trophy first round. They then play Appleby again on 1 October in the league.

Earlier this month, The Star reported that Hallam chairman and former premiership referee Uriah Rennie has been trying to keep the peace behind the scenes where there has been a rumpus over voting rights and money.
