Hallam FC 2 – 1 Clipstone FC
On a day the likes of which probably haven’t been witnessed in living memory, 1179 supporters made their way into the World’s Oldest Football Ground on a day of footballing celebration. Hallam FC had already just about guaranteed promotion from NCEL Division One as champions, barring a highly improbable mathematical disaster, and so this game was a chance for everyone connected with the club to let their hair down and celebrate.
The opposition was Clipstone FC who, languishing in the relegation zone, arrived with their own battles to fight, and their own reasons to try and upset the Hallam party atmosphere. Pleasant springtime sunshine greeted the kick off, and the Hallam fans were in fine voice, providing unwavering support and atmosphere throughout the game.
Hallam FC 4 - 0 Worsborough Bridge
Wahey! "@HallamFC1860 have only gone and won the bloody league!" Well, barring a sequence of results that even Kim Jong Un would find ‘a bit implausible’ anyway. And it all felt, well, a bit familiar.
A win delivered with, if not ease, then fairly minimal fuss.
Hallam FC 7 – 2 Teversal FC
On an uncharacteristically glorious Spring afternoon, the Oldest Football Ground in the World welcomed 649 supporters to witness what would be a fascinating clash between high flying Hallam and bottom team Teversal.
Any thoughts of this being a one-sided affair with Hallam scoring a cavalcade of goals were quickly dispelled when, on the 5th minute, Hallam were unable to effectively clear their defensive lines, allowing Lewis Macaskill to open the scoring for Teversal. The opening quarter of the game continued to be an even affair, but any creeping nerves about the outcome of this match were eased in the 20th minute. The always dangerous Iren Wilson broke through the Teversal defence, displaying his trademark speed and tenacity, before unselfishly crossing the ball and allowing the equally dangerous Liam Royles a simple tap in.
Hallam FC 7 - 2 Rainworth
So after the weekend’s efforts to get 6 points clear at the top, would Hallam FC get caught by a sucker punch from lowly Rainworth and plunged back into uncertainty? Er, no. No they wouldn’t.
Fans of tension and jeopardy were disappointed very early on by their frequent nemesis, Iren Wilson, only a couple of minutes in.
Hallam FC 3 - 1 North Ferriby
Leagues aren’t won six games out, but by beating North Ferriby, HallamFC1860 have given themselves a couple of extra lives for the run-in.
Another four figure crowd of 1048, with plenty from Humberside, gathered to see the top two face off in what was always likely to be a close game.
It started very evenly, both sides having a few half-chances before North Ferriby opened the scoring after 15 minutes, working their opening well. It didn’t affect the balance of the game though and Hallam kept themselves in it, getting particular joy with balls over the shoulder of Watson, Wilson and Royles troubling Ferriby’s relatively high line.
Hallam FC 2 - 1 Ollerton Town
It’s at that point in the season for @HallamFC1860 when it doesn’t matter how they get three points as long as they do.
Which was just as well tonight. It had all started so well. More or less straight from the kick-off they moved the ball neatly around an Ollerton side who hadn’t woken up and allowed Bradbury to volley home.
To Ollerton’s credit, they sorted themselves out quickly and a period of high tempo running around to very little net effect followed.
Glasshoughton Welfare 1 - 2 Hallam FC
We arrived at the Glasshoughton Welfare ground and was greeted to a walm welcome by the gate meister and his young apprentice. It was for once a sunny day, and with the previous few weeks of petulant storms this felt like spring was incoming.
The pitch was dry but looked like it could do with some un-bobbling treatment. The club’s chairman, who was also the burger flipper for the day, tells us the usual story of Club Vs Council which is not unfamiliar at this level of football. For the record the burgers he flipped were good especially with the addition of a processed cheese slice.
