The City Taxis and Devonshire ties are scheduled for 20 December, but the Intake Old Boys tie is likely to be played in the New Year.

23 Nov SUNDAY SENIOR CUP QUARTER FINAL -- FC Handsworth Turf to face The Vine - The Quarter Final draw of the Sunday Senior Cup has seen our two remaining clubs drawn against each other at Hillsborough College on 20 December.

The full draw is: Royal Earl v Westville; FC Handsworth Turf v The Vine; Wombwell Main v Plough (Greasbrough); Fitzwilliam Arms v High Noon.

23 Nov - Howsham & Blythen top the Leading Scorer charts - The Twentytwo Leading Scorer charts for the season have been updated and last season's top scorer, Division One Hallam's Joe Howsham is once again in front on 17 goals, but just one behind him on 16 is Division Two AFC George's leading marksman Michael Blythen.

15-Nov 2015 SUNDAY JUNIOR CUP ROUND 4 - Aston let it slip, but Loxley will have to try again - Despite Ross Edwards, David Sills and Ian Draper giving Aston Swallownest an early three goal lead at Balby Athletic, Aston switched off after that and crashed out of the Sunday Junior Cup 6-4. Loxley's tie at Swallownest MW was postponed for a second week and they will have to try again next weekend

CBC PREMIER - Redmires go top, but the Crosby show sees The Vine slip up, while Sampson's last gasp strike saves Oughtibridge - Jon Wall scored twice as Redmires defeated Southey Social to go top of the CBC Premier, but The Vine missed the chance to go second after a Tom Crosby penalty gave FC Handsworth Turf the points. Crosby (right) also kept a clean sheet after taking over in goal when keeper Liam Richardson had to go off injured. Strachan Sampson hit a last-gasp equaliser against a Brinsworth Whitehill that had led after a Joe McGuiness double.

DIVISION 1 - Whittington treble lifts Ecclesfield, but Intake are held by Legion - Scott Whittington (left) scored a hat-trick as Ecclesfield Players Lounge climbed into the Division One promotion race with victory over Ranch, but Intake Old Boys let two points slip in a draw at Chapeltown RBL.

DIVISION 2 - Adams & Council lead the way for Church, while Owen stunner keeps Devonshire on course and White-out hits Crookes - After both scored hat-tricks for Penistone Church in the County Senior League the day before, Tom Adams and Tim Council did it again on Sunday to help Penistone to increase their lead at the top of Division Two with victory over Laycock Sports. Second place Killamarsh Juniors looked set to wreck third place Devonshire's perfect record, but Devonshire hit back to win it with a Nicky Owen (right) stunner in the final minute. Cobden View gained their first home points of the season with victory over Norton Oaks B, while a Dimitri White treble helped Woodhouse Juniors to also record their first home win of the season against Crookes & District.

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.

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.
