New kit unveiled by Hallam
23rd September, 2019
Hallam unveiled their brand new official home and away kits for the 2019/20 season ahead of their 5-0 home win over Harrogate Railway Athletic in Toolstation NCEL Division One on Saturday.
The Hummel manufactured shirts are sponsored by the club's new shirt sponsor Lawson Property Services Ltd (LPS) and to reward all Hallam, and indeed football supporters everywhere, both home and away shirts are priced at just £20.
The home shirt returns to a solid blue body with white sleeves, whilst the away shirt follows recent seasons with a solid yellow design, and all shirts will be available to supporters without a sponsor's logo on the front.
Both shirts are on sale online at www.hallamfc.co.uk
and in the 1860 Suite at Sandygate on matchdays.
Hallam chairman Steve Basford said: "We really wanted to give something back to our loyal supporters and make our replica shirt affordable to everyone, so pricing them at £20 is our way of doing that."
A club spokesperson added: "Thanks must go to local companies TwentyTwo (www.twentytwoshop.com
) and DB Sports (www.db-sports.co.uk
) for helping us to achieve this.
"We're also delighted to welcome Ryan of LPS onboard as our brand new shirt sponsor following on from his sponsorship of our training kit in previous seasons. We look forward to working with Ryan."
Home and away goalkeeper shirts will also be available on a 'to order only' basis.
Big crowd watches Hallam's Premier League friendly
7th August, 2019
Hallam enjoyed their biggest crowd in recent years as 1,024 packed into Sandygate to watch the Toolstation NCEL Division One hosts take on a strong Sheffield United side on Tuesday night.
Although the attendance was not a record at the world's oldest football ground - that still stands at an estimated 2,000 for a game back in 1959 - it was still the highest in a long time, leaving chairman Steve Basford absolutely delighted.
He told the club's website: "What a brilliant evening for the club!
"There are so many people I’d like to thank, particularly Sheffield United for bringing such a strong side, everyone who turned up on the night and made it such a great atmosphere, all of our sponsors, and our army of volunteers, especially Jane and the bar staff and Ann in the tea cabin."
The Blades, who start their Premier League campaign on Saturday following promotion from the Championship, brought several first team regulars and a strong under-23 contingent to take part in the game that ended 3-0 in favour of the visitors although Hallam can be delighted with their performance.
Up next for the Countrymen is their Extra Preliminary Round tie in the Emirates FA Cup at home to NCEL rivals Staveley Miners Welfare with another big crowd expected for the match that takes place on Sunday, kick-off 3pm.
