SFD13 to take place in April

10 March 2016

The 13th Sheffield Fans Derby will take place at Sandygate, the world's oldest football ground, home of Hallam FC, next month.

Unitedites will go head-to head with their blue and white counterparts from across the city on Thursday 14th April, kick-off 7.30pm, in a charity match, in aid of the Sheffield Hospital Charities Accident & Emergency Department Appeal.

The Blades were 6-4 winners of the fixture 12 months ago, but more important a record £4,903.27 was raised for the Sheffield Helipad Appeal and a cheque presentation took place with the aforementioned charity prior to the fixture against Burton Albion.

The total raised since 2008 now stands at £32,092.15 from 12 games of football in aid of 12 different charities.
