DAVID Slater has stepped down as chairman of Hallam.

“I was voted back in at the agm but my heart wasn’t in it for another year as chairman and so I have stepped aside although I will still be involved and get stuck into fund-raising and work my socks off,” said Slater, who had been in the post over two years.

“Chris Taylor is the new chairman, we have Uriah Rennie as club president and the club is in safe hands. During my time I brought people in, the clubhouse has been done and the successes outweigh the failures.

“I just felt it time for a fresh approach.”

Tomorrow Hallam are at second-placed Pontefract Collieries as they seek to end their winless streak.

They have just a point and are out of the FA Cup, League Cup and Vase.

Parkgate go into their home clash against Staveley MW as Premier Division leaders following an impressive 4-0 victory at Pickering Town on Tuesday.

The Steelmen are seven matches unbeaten, winning six on the trot and the only points dropped were in the opening game. Despite no wins in four away trips, Staveley are likely to provide a stern test of Parkgate’s early championship aspirations.

Armthorpe Welfare go to Heanor Town looking to stretch their unbeaten away run to four after an excellent 2-2 draw at promotion hopefuls Scarborough Athletic who go to second-placed Worksop Parramore.

In Division One, Dinnington Town host in-form Athersley Rec. Town have lost five of the last six outings and have yet to pick up a point at home.

Athersley, on the other hand, couldn’t have wished for a better start to their first season in the NCE League.

The Barnsley side are currently top of the table with 14 points from six games and undefeated in eight games in all.

Rossington Main are bidding to secure their first home win over the season at the expense of Teversal, but also avenge last month’s 2-1 League Cup defeat at the visitors Carnarvon Street ground.
