Hallam Joint Managers will be keeping their mistletoe dry until the ninety minutes are over

Let’s hope Chairman, Steve Basford has ordered that extra bottle of sherry, wife Jane has the coffee maker set to ‘boost’ and that Anne’s Cabin is stocked to the rafters with Christmas fare, as there is sure to be a big crowd at Sandygate this weekend when sixth placed Hallam welcome the side currently second in Toolstation NCEL Division One, Grimsby Borough, in pretty much the game of the day in the Division – and the Hallam Joint Managers will be keeping their mistletoe dry until the ninety minutes are over, writes Colin Muncie.
The sides shared six goals in a thriller at Bradley Road last October – just before Wilderness Boys Daniel Barrett had his close encounter of the third kind with his extra-terrestrial landscapers –and Hallam’s Joint Manager, Stephen Whitehead sees no reason why the reverse fixture won’t be as good. “It’s as big as they come on Saturday,” Stephen admitted, “and we will have to be at our best to get anything from the game. Personally, I’m looking forward to it as these are the games you want to be involved in.”
Joint Manager, Scott Bates has tremendous admiration for Borough. “It’s a massive game and challenge for us,” he warned, reflecting on that narrow S and H Cup defeat to Maltby Main in midweek. “I am sure that the lads will be wanting to put our Cup exit right with a good League display.”
“I regard Grimsby as the best footballing team in our League – and I am sure that the lads know what we are up against.”
