I stopped keeping this site up-to-date many years ago, so if you've ended up here I'm afraid there's nothing much of interest to see any more.

I made a Yeltzland app for iPhone/iPad and Android, which lets you read all about the Yeltz in one place.
You can also add the Yeltz fixture list into your calendar - instructions can be found here.

Follow Your Instinct
Even older than the original Yeltzland website, we wrote a HTFC fanzine between 1991 and 1994.
I've started scanning in the originals, and you can download the PDFs from the FYI home page.
Review of the 1995-96 season

Why are we called The Yeltz?
No one knows for sure, but here's an summary from the excellent Yeltzmen book that's the best explanation we have!
Atherstone 0 Yeltz 0
Yet another 0-0 draw away from home - this time against Atherstone. We still haven't won away in the league this season and are only 10th in the table.
Yeltz 3 Sittingbourne 1
A 3-1 win at home to Sittingbourne and we're back onto the first page of the table on Ceefax. Oh joy! Evran's back as well.
DMC Yeltz 0 Bilston 0
And another's gone. We could only draw 0-0 against Bilston in the League Cup 1st Round 2nd leg, so we're out 3-1 on aggregate. Oh dear.
FAC Yeltz 0 Northwich 2
It's all over. A 2-0 loss at home to Northwich is no disgrace, but it was another disappointing Yeltz performance. We had much of the play but never really looked like scoring, and Northwich fully deserved their victory.
Matt Clarke is sold to Kidderminster for a welcome £10,000 plus more following appearances. It's a shame to see him go, but that's a good deal for us.
FAC Redditch 0 Yeltz 3
Our epic cup run staggers on with a 3-0 victory over Redditch in the replay. Goals from Bradley, Crisp and Piearce means we'll play Northwich in the 4th Qualifying Round tie, the farthest we've been for several years.
FAC Yeltz 2 Redditch 2
Halesowen leave it late to force a 2-2 draw against Redditch in the FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round. On a very wet day, we were twice behind before Matt Gardiner forced the ball home in the last five minutes.
DMC Bilston 3 Yeltz 1
Halesowen Old Boys - otherwise known as Bilston - 3 Yeltz 1. Two goals from Evran Wright and one from Malcolm Hazlewood meant Halesowen suffered yet another away defeat in this Doc Martens Cup First round First Leg tie. Steve Piearce got our goal.
Merthyr 2 Yeltz 1
Another disappointing away performance, this time a 2-1 defeat at Merthyr - Yeltz goal from Bradder. Top of the table Forest Green drew 2-2 at second place Crawley in front of 2,163!
FAC Yeltz 4 Rothwell 1
The Yeltz march on in the FA Cup, winning the replay against Rothwell 4-1 after extra time. It was 1-1 at full-time, Halesowen having taken the lead through Kevin Harrison. However Rothwell had their goalie sent off, and by the end were down to 9 men. Goals from Gardiner, Piearce and Yates means we go through to a home tie against Redditch.
