SATURDAY 27TH OCTOBER, 1973

F.A. AMATEUR CUP AT SANDYGATE ROAD, SHEFFIELD

HALLAM 3 (Ward, Farley, Ellis) WORSBOROUGH BRIDGE O


This cup encounter was a very entertaining and well contested game but in the end Hallam ran out winner. The visitors who were without ace striker Mick Hardcastle lacked sufficient forward power to penetrate the home defence. In contrast Hallam were full of attacking ideas most of which stemmed from the impressive Barney Barnett.

Right back Frank Ward headed the first goal from a corner on the left after twenty minutes. Worsborough fought back and all but equalised but just before half time, but Paul Garlick saved well from Holderness. After sixty minutes Mick Farley made it 2-0 and with five minutes left the ever alert Peter Ellis put the issue beyond doubt with a fine header.
