You are super close - just missing a few quotes

SELECT * FROM results WHERE away_team = "Hessle" AND played_on >= "2015-10-01";

thank you

You didn't close your quotes around Hessel or put the date in quotes. Generally it's good to use single quotes for SQL statements as well.

SELECT * FROM results WHERE away_team = 'Hessle' AND played_on >= '2015-10-01';

aah thanks! Will definitely keep that in mind.
