Firstly, I just want to say a big thank you to the chairman for retaining myself and the rest of the coaching staff for the next season. It’s been a pleasure to manage Hallam FC, albeit through a difficult period, and I can’t wait to get back to normal and get a full season completed, push ourselves as far as we can, and compete at the top end of the table.
Ever since last summer when I came on board, the fans have been absolutely fantastic. Their vocal and financial support has been second to none and I personally can’t wait to get as many people in once restrictions have been lifted. Hopefully, we can play some entertaining football and pick the wins up along the way.

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.
