They set off on Thursday Morning from Sothall and arrived In Edinburgh Saturday Tea-time. A great achievement from all involved and have raised £4500 for the charity. A big thank you to everyone who sponsored them and gave them support.

18 JUNE – League AGM and Clubs must check their Club details – The League intends to hold its AGM by Zoom on Monday 28 June starting at 7:30pm – ALL CLUBS MUST BE REPRESENTED. We are sorry for the short notice, but we have been sorting out a few things and are aware that some Leagues have yet to complete their fixtures for the 20-21 season. The proposed constitution of the League is set out in the Clubs section, with Handsworth Inn Pub back in the Premier Division after Redmires resigned, Nether Green and Wadsley Jack Athletic up to Division 1 and the two new clubs, Red Lion and Water Tower in Division Two. This is all dependent on no unexpected withdrawals from the League and clubs agreement at the AGM.

Prior to that, clubs MUST check their details in the Clubs section of the League website and confirm to Keith that they are still correct, or notify him of any changes known at the moment. In particular, it is important that clubs confirm where they are playing and who they will be sharing with in the 2021-22 season as this information is needed for the Sunday Fixtures meeting with the County FA and the other Sunday Leagues. You must do this ASAP and no later than 27 June if possible. If you have any changes after that date, you must notify Keith ASAP.

3 MAY – Mick Forbes RIP - The League was very saddened to hear that Mick Forbes, the popular former coach of Shakey FC and Park Hotel, has sadly passed away after battling a very serious illness. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends.

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.
