19 Feb - Another Blast from the Past- Because we can't have any football at the moment I thought I would take you back to a report and pictures from the past.

15-May 2009 - West End feel the Payne as Eddie wins it for Stannington

 Bramall Lane has rarely seen a better goal than the one that won the Blades Super Draw League’s Macron Cup Final and Eddie Payne’s strike for Stannington Village was worthy of winning a Cup Final at any level of the game. The Stannington centre back Payne won the ball on the edge of his own area and set off on a run that took him into the Woodhouse West End half. With no one coming to close him down he continued forward and just as he reached the West End penalty area he unleashed a shot that flew past West End keeper John Badkin into the far corner of the net.

West End had dominated the early stages of the game and had a Jason Short effort disallowed for a very narrow offside decision. Ashley Atkins had a free kick tipped onto the bar by keeper John Grayson and Danny Hooper might have done better with two headers, while the nearest Village came was a Tom Morton shot that was tipped over the bar.

Atkins had been West End’s most dangerous forward, so it was a real blow when he had to give way to an ankle injury. West End, with Anthony Dolan causing problems down the right, was still having more of the play after the break though and thought they should have had a penalty when Short was brought down on the edge of the area. Village, with midfielder Shane Toulson having a greater influence on the game, began to get more into the game and as the West End defence began to creek Shaun Flynn carved the West End defence wide open, only to see Toulson waste the chance to put Stannington ahead.

It was a brief respite though as just a couple of minutes later Payne carved through the West End defence to score his wonder goal and when Jack Mylnek started a move that saw Toulson rip the West End defence open, Josh Coulson’s volley was denied the goal it was worth by a terrific save by Badkin. With West End throwing caution to the wind, Mylnek had another great chance to put the game out of reach, but after finding himself one on one with Badkin, he shot wide.

West End tried to respond and even threw Badkin forward, but they still couldn’t get a meaningful shot on target and the Macron Cup went Stannington’s way. - photos by Mark Rodgers show Eddie Payne celebrating his goal and Stannington Village with the Cup.

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.
