Hall Road Rangers have a long history that stretches back well over 60 years.
Originally formed in 1959 by Ted Richardson, Rangers started out as a Sunday league team. It was nine years later in 1968 that the club made the transition to Saturday football when they joined the Yorkshire League.
The 1972/73 season produced two trophies for the club. Rangers won the East Riding Senior Cup and the Yorkshire League Division Three title. Hall Road won the Yorkshire League Division Three title once again in the 1979/80 season.
The club then moved into the NCEL when it was formed ahead of the 1982/83 season. One of a number of ever presents in the league itself, Rangers have either competed in the NCEL Premier Division or NCEL Division One in the years that followed.
Another trophy was added to the cabinet in the 1990/91 campaign when the club won the old NCEL Division Two title. Rangers recorded a record attendance of 1,200 spectators in 1993 for a home pre-season friendly against Manchester City.
Rangers won the East Riding Senior Cup again in the 1993/94 season as they beat Sculcoates Amateurs 1-0 in the final.
More silverware came in the 2003/04 season in the form of the NCEL Wilkinson Sword Trophy. Hall Road’s run included wins over Tadcaster Albion and Yorkshire Amateur before a 5-4 aggregate win over Garforth Town in a two legged final.
The club won the NCEL Wilkinson Sword Trophy for a second time in the 2008/09 season with a 3-2 aggregate win against Teversal in the final.
Dene Park was the home of Hall Road Rangers for a number of years until the club moved to Haworth Park in 2015. Since then, the club have been building foundations both on and off the pitch. There are a number of youth teams within the club infrastructure and a new ladies team has recently been formed.
Hall Road’s last piece of silverware came in the 2016/17 season when they won the NCEL Division One title.
In the last couple of years, the club have had to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic like the rest of the world. In which, the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons were heavily disrupted and ultimately not completed. The former technically never happened as all results were expunged.
However, the world slowly got back to normality and we managed to have a full and complete 2021/22 campaign which resulted in a 10th placed finish!
After spending exactly 40 years in the NCEL, the club made the challenging decision to resign from the league and move into the Humber Premier League ahead of the 2022/23 season.
