Hallam FC 4 - 2 Chesterfield FC Academy
Football was back home at Sandygate for the first time since December, with a crowd of 231 Hallam faithful treated to a pre-season friendly against Chesterfield FC Academy under the stunning summer sun.
The game quickly saw its first goal of the evening when, in the 4th minute, Chesterfield's Leigh Whelan fired the ball into the top corner of the net with an outstanding half-volley. Chesterfield continued strongly, but Hallam held their own in a tight game. The 34th minute of the game saw the Spireites 'keeper pull off a brilliant save following a Hallam free-kick which caused havoc in the Chesterfield box.

Worksop Town FC 2 – 2 Hallam FC
For the first time in five months, football was back for the Countrymen and the Hallam faithful who made the short trip down to Worksop Town FC for the first pre-season friendly.
The match began with instant action when, in the first minute, Worksop were awarded a penalty. But 'keeper Sam Andrew was equal to it, saving the penalty and keeping the scoreline level, with high praise coming from the Hallam faithful. Andrew continued to play out of his skin, making a number of fine saves throughout the first half, with Hallam able to withstand the early pressure from the Tigers.
