Hartley Sunday, an open age mens team formed in the summer of 2019, set out to compete in the Basingstoke & District Sunday Football League Division 3 for the 2019/20 season. But for the premature closure of the season due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, they would surely have lifted the title. At the point at which the season was curtailed, Hartley Sunday topped the division with 30 points from 11 league games, having won 10, drawn none and lost just one game. They'd notched up a goal difference of +67, having scored 75 and conceded just 8 in the league. Their nearest rivals, North Warnborough, had two games in hand but were 8 points behind. Alas, all results were wiped from the official records, so what looked like becoming a superb first season for the team would seemingly end with them missing out on a deserved promotion. But infact they were promoted to divison 2 for 2020-21.
