A view of the action at The Shay, home of FC Halifax Town (in blue), on the day that they were presented with the Northern Premier League Premier Division championship trophy following their match with Mickleover Sports, which ended in a 1-1 draw in front of a crowd of 2,404. The club replaced Halifax Town AFC who went into administration during the 2007–08 season, having previously been members of the Football League for 80 years. Their promotion meant they would play in Conference North in the 2011-12 season.
