17 JUNE - League AGM and General Meeting - All clubs are reminded that it is the League AGM and General Meeting on Monday 17 June at 7:30 at Bramall Lane. All clubs must be represented.

8 JUNE - Richard becomes the League's first Disability Ambassador - The League has long been a supporter of Disability Football through its support of the Spartans and we have now taken it a step further by appointing Richard Brown as our first Disability Ambassador. Richard, who is still part of the Spartans organisation and plays for Brunsmeer Awareness in the Ability Counts League, is a good example of why disability does not stop someone being involved in football. Richard will help the League at League events.

5 JUNE - Five new clubs set to join the League & League Constitution for 2019-20 - After the League held interviews with applicants, subject to ratification by member clubs at the AGM on 17 June, five new clubs were successful. Three of them have come from the Meadowhall Under 21 - champions, New Bohemians, runners-up Nether Green and fourth place Eckington BFC. The fourth, playing at the Dorothy Hyman Stadium, is Barnsley & District Division Two champions Darfield Queen Victoria, whilst the fifth sees the return of a Killamarsh Juniors team.

Again, subject to taification by member clubs, to accomodate the new clubs there are a few changes to the constitution for the 2019-20 season from what may have been expected at the end of the last season. Forum FC has folded, with many of the players joining forces with Handsworth Inn (Old Crown last season). This will mean that Cotts FC will join Royal Earl and Crookes in the CBC Premier to keep that Division at 11 teams. To take Division One up to 12 teams, Norton Oaks will not be relegated, and as well as Boynton Sports, Sheffield Sixs and Mosborough Whites, Colley and Woodhouse JFC will also be promorted from Division Two. There will also be 12 teams in Division Two. The constitution could change if there are any further withdrawals by member clubs, but none are expected.

Current known details of all clubs for the 2019-20 season are now shown in the Clubs section. All clubs MUST check their details and email keithsssl@aol.com to either confirm their details are correct, or provide any necessary amendments. This should be done no later that Friday 14 June.

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.
