4- Sep - BREAKING NEWS – Devonshire beat off other interest to sign Wareham - Newcomers to the League, The Devonshire, showed their intent to have a successful season by making a last-gasp signing before the season starts when they beat off other interest to sign Joe Wareham, back in the UK after a spell in USA. Wareham, an experienced full back was brought to the club by Head Scout Callum Flanagan who said this about his latest recruit. “Joe is an excellent acquisition with experience of playing at the highest level and will add much needed energy to an aging backline.”   Both Flanagan (pictured on the right) and Wareham (left) are looking forward to the new season with Flanagan adding “promotion is the only option”.

31 Aug - Football loses a stalwart - The League was sorry to hear that Albert Dodds, father of Oughtibridge WM's Matt Dodds, had passed away. Albert (pictured right) was a popular man and manager throughout local football for many years. More recently he concentrated on watching his son Matt play for Oughtibridge on Sundays and was quick to buy their manager Dave Hudson a pint when they won, but quick to also tell him when they were rubbish. Everyone connected with Oughtibridge and the League would like to pass on their condolences to Albert's family and friends. A true gent - RIP Albert Dodd.

12 April 2015 - SUNDAY JUNIOR CUP FINAL - A late winner by Super Mario sees Turf take the Cup  - Super Mario Esposito was again the hero for Handsworth Turf as they beat Upton Wrangbrook to win Sunday Junior Cup Final at the Stocksbridge Park Steels Look Local Stadium. After Ben Shackshaft's first half goal had been cancelled out in the second half, it left super Mario Esposito to hit a very late winner for Turf and enable skipper Liam Richardson to step up and collect the trophy (pictured left and then the squad celebrating). It keeps the trophy in the League after The Pheasant's triumph last season and makes Turf the fifth Blades Super Draw League team to win it.

28-Feb 2015 – Spartans to go International - This summer the Spartans will undertake a short tour to Malaga, Spain, where they will play some games and get the chance to meet counterparts in Spain.

19 August 2013 - Social Media - All clubs are reminded to tell their players and officials that any mis-use of social media such as Twitter, Facebook etc, can lead to penalties being imposed by both the County FA and the League. This mis-use could be in the form of poor or abusive comments about a referees display, another club or player, the League and its management, the County FA and its employees, or the FA. Even if someone just forwards, or agrees with, abusive or damaging comments made by someone else, they will be dealt with the same as if they made the comments. The League, so far hasn't had too many issues with this, although a few clubs have been warned that their players need to be careful in what comments some of them have said or agreed with

23 Jun 2013 - Twentytwo continue their sponsorship with the League - We are pleased to say that football shop twentytwo have continued their sponsorship of the League's Leading Scorer Award for the 2013-14 season and the leading scorer in league games will once again win the 'Golden Boot' award in the shape of a free pair of football boots.

25 August 2014 - Blades Super Draw League again honoured by The FA - The Blades Super Draw League's hard work towards the aims of The FA's Respect campaign over many years has again been recognised with a second award in three years by The FA. Following on from a Bronze Award three years ago, the League has received a Commended Award for its work last season. It's a great honour to be recognised in this way and it recognises the hard work the League continues to do to make its games enjoyable for all concerned.

19 Apr 2012 - Blades Super Draw League honoured by The FA - The Blades Super Draw League's hard work towards the aims of The FA's Respect campaign over many years has been honoured by The FA with a Bronze Award.

For 25 years the League's Merit Award system, culminates in the Steve Gee Merit Cup Final each season. The system, which rewards clubs for good behaviour and good discipline throughout the season, was a key element. The League was also the first Adult Men's Sunday League in the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA area to adopt The FA's Respect banner. We have continued our efforts to make the League one of the best, if not the best, in the country by refunding a portion of League fees back to the top five clubs in terms of discipline.

The aim is to make our games enjoyable for players officials and spectators alike and we intend to try to continue to find ways of furthering our principles. All the people that have contributed over the years should be very proud and our clubs should also be very proud of the way that they have helped by adopting the principles set out by the League.
