17 April - CBC PREMIER - The Vine climb the table at the double  - Doubles for Rikki Davidson, Liam Allott and Matt Ellis saw a ten man The Vine beat relegation rivals Bulls Head.

16 April - CBC PREMIER - Jack's alright for Stannington, while Bath sinks Brinsworth  - A Jack Mylnek (right) double saw Stannington Village win at Civil Service to open up a seven point gap at the top of the CBC Premier and victory over Oughtibridge WM at the weekend will see Stannington lift the League Title for a third consecutive season and a fourth time in all and even a draw will be enough if Redmires fail to win at Stocksbridge Park Steels. Redmires kept their slim title hopes alive as two Andy Bath strikes helped them to a narrow victory at Brinsworth Whitehill.

13 April 2015 - Referees for the Kitlocker Cup Final at Bramall Lane announced - The League Kitlocker Cup Final to be played at Bramall Lane on Sunday 26 April with a 3:30 pm kick-off will have Paul Matthewson (pictured left) as the referee and his assistants will be Will Cavanagh and Tony Clubb, while the 4th official will be Nick Mason. Paul has been a referee for 11 years and has a family connection with Bramall Lane as his uncle was the former Sheffield United defender Reg Matthewson, who made 149 appearances for the Blades during the 1960s before making over 150 appearances for Fulham. Football runs right through Paul's family as his brother Trevor made 3 appearances for the Owls in the 1980s before going on to make over 400 appearances at seven Football League clubs. Paul's late dad also played professionally for Newcastle United.

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 right 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.

CBC PREMIER - Stannington hit back to take control of the title  - Lee Johnstone (left) set Stannington Village on the road to recovery as they opened up a gap at the top of the CBC Premier by coming from behind to beat The Vine, but Redmires title dreams look to be over after they were held to a draw by Bulls Head. Joe McGuiness hit a hat-trick as Brinsworth Whitehill won at fellow relegation strugglers Riverside, a result that means that Riverside are certain to finish in the bottom three.

DIVISION 1 - The Pheasant pip Southey to guarantee promotion, while Ecclesfield say good Knight to Dam House  - Dylan Parrott (right) set The Pheasant on the road to clinching promotion with a narrow victory over their Division One promotion rivals Southey Social, while Joe Knight scored four as Ecclesfield Players Lounge virtually guaranteed their safety by beating fellow relegation strugglers Dam House Bar.

DIVISION 2 - Sam's the man as Phoenix take the title, while Hallam close in on the Runner-up spot   Sam Firth scored twice as Phoenix (left) clinched the Division Two title with victory over Fox & Hounds Rangers, while Hallam now look favourites to take the Runner-up spot after Miles Howarth and Mick Boulding goals gave them victory over their rivals for the honour, City Taxis. A Fraser Glossop strike for Steelers as they beat Chapeltown RBL to put a real dent in their hopes of finishing fourth, while Norton Oaks B climbed above Laycock Sports with victory over them.

7 April 2015 - DIVISION 2 - Laycocks overcome Sharrow  - Luke Glaves, Steve Morris and Scott Lyons goals saw Laycock Sports win 3-1 at Sharrow Vale

30-March 2015 - Referees for April added to the website - All home clubs must contact their referees immediately to confirm their games for the whole month with the referees. Please let Keith know if any problems.

25-Feb 2015 The Transfer Deadline Extended - In recognition of the number of games we have had postponed due to the weather, the deadline for signing players with our clubs has been extended until Tuesday 24 March. Any new registrations for your club must be with the County FA by that date. After that date any club wishing to sign another player must gain permission from the League before they try to sign them.

20-Feb 2015 The Fixtures for MARCH & APRIL are now shown - Home teams MUST make sure that their home pitch is available on all the dates shown PARTICULARLY FOR 22 & 29 MARCH AND ALL OF APRIL AS THE GRID ENDED ON 15 MARCH SO IF YOU SHARE WITH A TEAM, THEY MIGHT ALSO HAVE BEEN GIVEN A HOME GAME ON SOME OF THE DATES. Please email Keith immediately if your pitch is not available on a date shown.

All home clubs must also confirm the details with your opponents and referees for all MARCH dates shown IMMEDIATELY.

Please email Keith immediately if any of the referees tell you they cannot do the fixture listed.

Referees for APRIL will be added towards the end of March.

All Fixtures on 15 March are subject to change as that is a County FA Sunday Cups date, but Fixtures on other dates in March could also be subject to change if any County FA Cup ties are delayed, particularly games involving Redmires, Handsworth Turf and Hallam FC. This means that teams currently shown as SPARE in the fixtures might be able to play a game on the date they are spare if there has to be a change due to a County FA Cup tie.

Fixtures in April could change if we have any further postponements. I will try to add any postponed games to Sundays, but please bear in mind that they could inevitably have to be played in midweek.

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

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.
