Default Re: Oldest derby

The world's oldest football clubs have gone head to head in Derbyshire to celebrate the first derby ever played.

Sheffield FC and Hallam FC first clashed on 26 December 1860 with the match played under new rules drawn up by the founders of Sheffield FC.

The 153rd derby was won 4-2 by Sheffield FC at their home ground in Dronfield, north-east Derbyshire.

Organisers said the aim was to "celebrate the heritage of football".

Chairman of Sheffield FC, Richard Tims, said the club had been founded in 1857
