29 NOV – SUNDAY SENIOR CUP – Round 4 draw keeps all our 6 clubs apart – All six of our clubs have stayed apart in the draw for Round 4 of the Sunday Senior Cup. Only Stannington Village has been given a home tie, but it will be one of the ties of the round against Rotherham Premier leaders AFP. Oughtibridge WM also face a Rotherham Premier side when they travel to The Pewter Pot, as do Crookes FC at FC Manor Barn. Wadsley Bridge Pheasant travel to Barnsley Premier’s Athersley Recreation. Royal Earl travel to Mexborough Premier’ Queens United and Handsworth Everest Inn travel to Doncaster Rovers Premier leaders Scawthorpe Athletic. The full Round 4 draw is: The Pewter Pot v Oughtibridge WM; Athersley Recreation v WB Pheasant; FC Manor Barn v Crookes FC; Queens United v Royal Earl; Stannington Village v AFP; Scawthorpe Athletic v Handsworth Everest Inn; Rakkam v AFC Mallard; Dog Daisy United v AFC Three Feathers. All ties are scheduled for 12 December.

28 NOV – All Fixtures Postponed All fixtures postponed due to snow and ice

25 NOV – Fixtures & Referees for 5 December – Fixtures and Referees for 5 December are now shown in the Fixtures section of the website. There are two games without referees yet and it could be that I can't get any more as 7 referees have already told me that they are unavailable that day. Will all the home teams ensure that they confirm the details with both their opponents and referees where shown ASAP.

We cannot put the fixtures and referees for 12 December on the website yet as the County FA has not yet completed the draws for the Sunday Senior and Sunday Junior Cups due to be played that day. I will get them on as soon as the draws are known and I have been able to complete which league games can then be played and which referees I have available. We will also then add the fixtures for 19 December, although many teams have chosen to not play that date. If anyone hasn't yet told me they don't want a game on 19 December, they need to do so before Monday 29 November.

All home teams MUST make sure that their home pitch is available on all the dates shown. Please email Keith immediately if your pitch is not available on a date shown. All home clubs MUST also confirm the details with your referees and opponents for all dates shown as soon as they are shown. If you are having to kick-off at a time other than 11 am, you MUST make sure that both your referee, opponents and Keith are aware. The home clubs should later (the Tuesday before the game) ring the referee to make sure the referee has got all the details. If a referee says he cannot do a game listed for them, please notify Keith immediately.

Matches without referees must still go ahead and, if you have not been allocated a referee by the date of the game, the two clubs must agree on a stand-in 'referee' between them.  Although Keith will still be working to gain more referees, because we have a lower number of referees than in recent season, it is very likely that some games may not have an official referee allocated to them. If you find one yourself, will you let Keith know immediately please.

Any team that have opponents shown as "No game yet" should NOT assume that they will have no game on that date as we have often had to change fixtures at short notice as we try to get as many games played as possible.

22 NOV – LEAGUE TWENTYTWO CUP – League Twentytwo Cup Quarter Final Draw – The draw for the League Twentytwo Cup Quarter Final was made at Bramall Lane by the Sheffield Star’s James Shield pictured on the right) and The Athletic’s Richard Sutcliffe (pictured left). It will see holders Royal Earl entertain former holders Civil Sports and current CBC Premier leaders Joker Wickersley Youth travel to another former holder, Wadsley Bridge Pheasant, if they win their delayed tie with Division One New Bohemians. The only Division Two side remaining, Brinsworth Whitehill travel to CBC Premier title challengers Norton Sportsman and the only Division One side definitely in the Quarter Finals is Shaffield Sixs and they have a home tie against CBC Premier and former holders Handsworth Everest Inn. The full Quarter Final draw is: Norton Sportsman v Brinsworth Whitehill; Royal Earl v Civil Sports; Sheffield Sixers v Handsworth Everest Inn; WB Pheasant or New Bohemians v Joker Wickersley Youth.

It’s hoped to play the delayed Wadsley Bridge Pheasant v New Bohemians tie on 5 Dec, with the Quarter Final ties to be arranged for dates in January.

22 NOV – Shakey FC resign It is with regret that the League has accepted the resignation of Shakey FC. We thank their management for giving people an opportunity to play football and their efforts to try to keep the club going. All their games this season will be removed from the records.

21 NOV – League statement – It was brought to the League’s attention that Crookes FC had played a substitute in their League Cup tie win over Civil Sports that wasn’t included on the team sheet. The player was correctly registered with the League, so it was purely just a simple oversight in leaving his name off their team sheet. Unfortunately, a player not included on the team sheet is deemed to be ineligible and League Rule 13 states that if a player in a League Cup tie is ineligible in any way, his team is expelled from the competition for that season. Therefore, even though the League believes Crookes just made an honest error and did not deliberately do this to gain any advantage, the League has no option other than to expel them from this season’s League Cup. Civil Sports will take their place in the next round.

21 NOV – SUNDAY JUNIOR CUP – Whitehill Finnish off The Crown and Jacobs goes crackers for Renegade – Nine of our teams progressed to the last 32 of the Sunday Junior Cup with Brinsworth Whitehill leading the way as Ainsley Finney (pictured right) hit 5 in an eleven goal thrashing of Askern’s The Crown. Matt Jacobs (pictured left) scored four in an even more impressive Renegade victory over a Breakers FC yet to drop a point in Worksop’s top division. Cotts won a thriller against a The Garrison yet to drop a point in Barnsley’s Division One and also beating a Barnsley Division One side was Boynton Sports who put out Darfield Cross Keys. Sheffield South beat Chesterfield Division 6 leaders Brampton Rovers and Colley went through without kicking a ball after their Swallownest opponents conceded.

Three all-Blades Super Draw ties saw Brinsworth Phoenix gain revenge for their League Cup defeat by New Bohemians, FC Inter saw off Chapeltown RBL and Sheffield Sixs pipped Wadsley Jack Athletic on penalties. Beighton Magpies who lost at home to Rotherham Division One leaders Ravenfield Cavaliers was one of just three teams to go out to non-Blades Super Draw teams. The other two lost to teams that should really have been in the Senior Sunday Cup, with Jubilee Rangers losing at an AFC Royal currently top of the Doncaster Premier and Mosborough Reds who lost at a Birdwell Rovers unbeaten in the Barnsley Premier.

21 NOV – CBC PREMIER – Sportsman’s unbeaten run taken by Crookes as Joker go top – In the League, the CBC Premier’s last unbeaten record was brought to an end when Norton Sportsman lost at Crookes and that result allowed Joker Wickersley Youth to go top after Kallum Nix (pictured right) scored one and made one in their narrow win over title rivals Stannington Village. Alex Rippon made it consecutive hat-tricks as Royal Earl went third with victory at Norton Oaks.

21 NOV – DIVISION 1 – Southey and Intake share the spoils – The only Division One game played saw Southey Social come from two down to claim a draw with close rivals Intake Old Boys,

21 NOV – DIVISION 2 – Water Tower too much for Sheaf – The only Division Two game saw a Blaine Pashley winner give Water Tower the points against Sheaf House.

31 OCT – LEADING SCORER – Read all about it, Sam tops the charts – Division One FC Inter striker Sam Read (pictured left) is the early leader of the Leading Scorer chart, closely followed by CBC Premier Handsworth Everest Inn’s Sam Marsden. Next come Civil Sports’ marksman Jordan Turner and Sheffield South’s Harry Pollard. Pollard’s team mate Jack Hollis-Smith is just a goal behind along with Max Rhodes of Crookes, Stannington Village’s Jack Haslam and Eckington’s Joe Renshaw. The full list can be seen in the Results section

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

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.

Support for the Spartans 2009 - The Blades Super Draw League is helping to promote the Spartans FC - a Sheffield area Special Olympics football initiative - and Spartans FC now has its own web page which you can access by clicking on the Spartans FC icon above. Watch out for updates.
