Prepare to be amazed as the day will include a recreation of a traditional game of football using some of the Sheffield Rules which date from 1858. Two girls teams and two boys teams will wear old fashioned football kit and play with a vintage leather football. All the pupils will be awarded commemorative medals produced by All Saints School.
Uriah Rennie, president of Hallam FC and former Premier League referee will referee the games, in top hat, together with two school pupil umpires from Forge Valley School.
In addition to the games, there will be an opportunity to view the excellent work carried out by the school pupils.
Displays will also be available to view from Sheffield FC, Hallam FC, Sheffield and Hallamshire County FA, Sheffield Wednesday FC, Sheffield United FC, Sheffield Schools FA, Football Unites Racism Divides and Heritage Lottery Fund.
Free entry, refreshments and historic programme will be provided.
To accompany the match, we have produced a Traditional Programme
