14 May - MACRON CUP FINAL - Redmires Knagg their way to Bramall Lane Final victory - In front of a crowd of over 700, Redmires lifted the Macron Cup at Bramall Lane for the first time in club history as a first half goal from the Kitlocker Man of the Match Dave Knaggs (left) and a second half strike from Mikey Taylor gave them a 2-0 victory over fellow CBC Premier side The Park.

After a slow it was The Park that went closest to opening the scoring when Mark Townsend's free kick was met by Nick Galloway and his header was deflected onto a post. From the resulting corner Galloway had another half chance, but the Redmires defence managed to clear. Redmires then started to look the more threatening, with Knaggs' pace causing The Park's defence problems and when Dale White played a ball to him in the corner of the penalty area, Knaggs just beat The Park keeper Sam Kirk to the ball to hook it over him into the net to give Redmires the lead.

Matt Reay and James Kirkham looking really solid at the heart of the Redmires defence, and Redmires keeper, Matt's brother, Dave Reay, commanding his area The Park were generally restricted to long range efforts. When The Park did get through they were denied first by the woodwork and then Dave Reay made two crucial saves in the second half to keep The Park at bay. The first came from a Calvin Thomas header from a corner that looked certain to be finding the bottom corner until Reay somehow got a hand to it to turn it round the post and later Raey got down low to block a Mark Townsend shot (pictured left).

The action switched back to the other end and after some good work by Jon Wall, Knaggs almost scored a second, but his effort skimmed the top of the bar. The Park's man of the match Nick Galloway produced two terrific last ditch tackles to stop Knaggs and Wall extending Redmires lead and keeper Kirk also did well to block another Knaggs effort after he had outpaced The Park's defence. A clincher did eventually come Redmires way when Knaggs beat Josh Ransom down the left and although he was brought down on the edge of the area, the ball broke for Taylor to take it past Kirk and slot home from ten yards. After the final whistle the Blades Super Draw promotions Manager Mick Rooker presented Knaggs with his Kitlocker Man of the Match Award and the Macron Cup to Redmires skipper Scott Smith, together with club captain Chris Cotterill. See Latest News for more detail and pictures from the game.

 

11 May - DIV 1 - Last gasp Brinsworth are promoted, while Ball are slaughtered by Lamb & Sampson - After being two down at half time Brinsworth Whitehill (left) fought back and a last minute Danny Willis goal gave them the point they needed to pip Norton Oaks to the final promotion place. New Division One champions Oughtibridge WM completed their season unbeaten as Strachan Sampson and Aaron Lamb (right) both hit hat-tricks as they thrashed the new Division One Runners-up Old Blue Ball.

DIV 2 - Fifty up for Carl Andrews as a double hat-trick lands him the League's Twentytwo Leading Scorer Golden Boot Award - Carl Andrews (right) hit a double hat-trick as The Pheasant completed their season by thrashing FC Spartak. Those six goals took his League tally to thirty one and landed him the Twentytwo Leading Scorer Golden Boot Award. It also took his tally for the season in all competitions to fifty.

6 May - MACRON CUP - Macron Cup Final officials - The League is pleased to announce that the referee for next week's Macron Cup Final between The Park and Redmires, at Bramall Lane, is Paul Cooper (pictured left).

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.
