Non League Day Comes To Sandygate


Posted 07th October 2015 - Posted in Club News Non League Day Comes To Sandygate

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

We will also be supporting Non-League Day's partner charity Prostate Cancer UK.

Hallam’s Pete Wilding said “We’re looking forward to a great game at Sandygate as 2nd take on 3rd in the NCEL League Division One.  We want to make Non-League Football accessible to all and what better way by letting current season ticket holders from any club around the country is completely FREE"

We’ll also have Crosspool Junior U8’s team as our guests for the game.  Crosspool’s manager Chris Pryor said "The team are delighted to be have been invited to the Hallam FC for Non-League Day.  Our players range from 6-8 years old and are at the beginning of a long relationship with Football and this experience will fuel their passion for the game.  There is great excitement amongst the players about being mascots and walking out on to the pitch with the players in front of what we hope will be a big crowd at the Oldest Football Ground in the World."

So why bring along your friends and family along and join us in what should be a terrific day at the World's Oldest Football Ground.

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