Hallam have lost the joint least amount of games in the NCEL Division One this season, but unfortunately for The Countrymen they have turned into draw specialists having come away from games with only a point on ten occasions.
And last night was a case in point as a 1-1 draw away at Parkgate in the South Yorkshire Derby saw the side from Sandygate leave the door open for Winterton Rangers on Saturday to catch them for the coveted 3rd place.
However, Hallam have secured their best placing since their return to the NCEL Division One in 2011, which is something their management team can take real pride in.
Joint Manager Stephen Whitehead was honest in his assessment. “Another draw. A bucket load of missed chances again and that’s why we’re not competing for top spot come the final game of the season.”
Joint Manager Scott Bates added, “Missed chances again, good reaction after half-time, story of our season from Christmas.”
And lastly, Dean Bamforth was a little more talkative. “Again not ruthless enough and to top it we concede another soft goal. Our form at the business end as been dreadful and you get what you deserve.”
“We’re inconsistent beyond belief. Roll on Saturday, hopefully get 3rd and then a break.”
Hallam face a 62-mile round trip to Ollerton on Saturday in their final game of the season.
