RE-UPHOLSTERY

ALLSTARS UNITE FOR CHARITY THIS WEEKEND This Sunday (23rd March) is a date for your diary with Events FC offering the opportunity to come and support Cathedral Archer Project at “Chris Waddle’s All Star Charity Football Match”. Held at Hallam FC Football Ground, the day shall see three unique games take place at 30 minutes a time, with some of Sheffield’s finest locals going head to head against a team of retired professionals and special surprise players. The day doesn’t end there, with the chance to get involved through

cross bar challenges, raffle prizes a full licensed bar. Events FC originally approached Hallam FC with the vision of a standard 90 minute business match, acting as a networking session for local companies. Since Chris Waddle has come on board though, the event has escalated into what we see on Sunday. His support and dedication in recruiting his team and assisting in advertisement has been incredible. Not only has the “Chris Waddle All Star Charity Football Match” event title increased ticket sales

dramatically; he has increased the Cathedral Archer Project publicity throughout Sheffield. Both Events FC and CAP are extremely grateful for all of the assistance Chris has given. Chris’ All Star Team on the day includes: David Hirst, John Sheridan, Darren Sheridan, Carlton Palmer, Julian Watts, David Holdsworth, John Beresford ,Mark Crossley and Front Man of Reverend and the Makers, Jon McClure. Another team competing on the day are the Hallam FC All Stars with an impressive selection of rivalry with retired

players including Sheffield Wednesday star Lee Bullen and championship boxer Adam Etches. Hallam FC All Stars promise to give their opposition a run for their money on the pitch! You can get in touch for ticket information by emailing sheffield-

charityfootball@gmail. com, or following us on twitter @EventsFC for regular updates. Please note, tickets are £5 per person (£2 per child) and 100% of the event profits are donated to this fantastic cause. Get involved and help Events FC “bring communities together, one goal at a time.”

Copley’s Column

This week has been a busy one for me on the entertainment front. The surprise guest at Russ Dennett’s open mic night was local beauty and great singer Ruth Roubelle. She was excellent on the night, and assured me that she had enjoyed it so much that she would be coming back for more. She asked me about celebrity breakfast that I attend every Thursday, and I was more than happy to have her as my guest this week. Ruth was more than impressed with what is a showbusiness experience, and enjoyed hatting to Jackie Toaduff, Bobby Dennis, Bobby Knutt, Jimmy Patton, Bernie Clifton and all the other celebrities who regularly attend. We always have a showbusiness quiz from both Bobby Dennis and Jimmy Patton, but I think that the majority of questions were about subjects long before her time. The weekly brain of the room title, more often than not goes to he extremely clever Bobby Knutt. Continuing with the very best in entertainment at the Victoria Inn, Dronfield, this week we were treated to some superb vocals and guitar playing from former lead singer with the Canyon, Anne Fotheringham, who in her first set performed a superb rendition of one of my favourite songs, ‘Have you ever seen the Rain’. This for me was the best song recorded by Credence Clearwater Revival. Such is the quality of local entertainment, we were faced with the prospect of not going to watch one of my favourite acts and close friend Sunny Daye at the Contact Club in Dronfield, for two very good reasons Mark Elvis Nixon, pictured, possibly the finest Elvis impersonator in the country, was making his farewell appearance at the Devonshire Inn, Dore, before emigrating to further his career on Tenerife. He was outstanding dressed in a new jumpsuit, white with gold spangles, and we could regrettably not stay until the end, but I am reliably informed that he performed an extra half hour in encores. This was a perfect warm up for us

before we see the Elvis hologram show on April 30th at the City Hall. The reason for leaving early was that we were invited to the fiftieth birthday celebration for former Mercury Newspaper proprietor and really nice guy David Hayes at Abbeydale Golf Club. The party was very well attended, as befitting the man, and we treated to some fine songs from Lance Gold, formerly half of top duo Star Star, and now enjoying a successful solo career. Lance had everyone up dancing, and obliged with a few extra songs at the end of his last set. Everyone was now in dancing mood, and the evening continued with some fine music played by our friend and disc jockey Andrew Piatts. I would like to take this opportunity to wish Chesterfield Football Club much success at Wembley on Sunday.

pub quiz 1: What is an aria in an opera?

2: What fasion designer first came to prominence with her bondage wear during the punk era? 3: What type of surface would a bandy match be played on? 4: Which is longer, a nautical mile or a terrestrial mile? 5: Kr is the symbol used to represent the element Krypton in the Periodic table - true or false? 6: In what decade did sliced bread first appear? 7: How much skin is on the average adult male body, to the nearest square foot? 8: When was the United Kingdom founded? 9: What item of fasion did Mary Quant invent? 10:What military rank did James Bond hold?

THE BIG REUNION Weekly Wit With... ALBERT ANNOUNCES BOY SNODGRASS BAND TOUR Following the success of The Big Reunion on ITV2, ITV and partners Live Nation have announced the launch of The Big Reunion Boy Band Tour. The acts will be heading to UK arenas again this October for a 13 date tour, this time bringing along the seven boy bands from both series – Five, Blue, 911, (from 2013 series) plus A1, Damage, 3T and the recently formed 5th Story featuring Gareth Gates, Dane Bowers, Adam Rickitt, Kavana, Kenzie (from 2014 series). The tour will open at the Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield on Friday 17th October. The Boy Band Tour is hot off the heels of last year’s two sell out shows in Sheffield, playing to over 20,000 people! Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Saturday 22nd March, in person at the Arena Box Office, by phone on 0114 256 5656 or online at www. motorpointarenasheffield.co.uk. Tickets purchased online and through the ticket hotline are priced £49.50 & £30.25 including booking fee. Tickets purchased in person at the Arena Box Office are priced £47.25 & £28.88 including booking fee. Series one of The Big Reunion which aired last year starred some of the biggest pop groups of the nineties coming together for the ultimate reunion. Acts featured included Five and 911 who were joined by surprise addition Blue mid-way through the series. The groups were thrust back into the spotlight, reliving their dreams and revealing the highs and lows of life in a pop group. The groups followed the success of the programme by embarking on two UK & Irish tours in May and December, performing in arenas to almost 200,000 fans. The show returned to TV screens this February with a brand new line-up of popstars – including Boy Band Tour members A1, Damage, 3T and the newly formed 5th Story. The new supergroup is comprised of solo artists Gareth Gates, Adam Rickitt and Kavana, along with Another Level’s Dane Bowers and Blazin’ Squad’s Kenzie. Combined they have had 27 top ten hits including five number ones, won MOBO, Smash Hits, and MTV awards and played to sold out crowds around the world. The latest series has documented exclusive and explosive accounts from former pop heroes, with revelations about drugs, fisticuffs, rows, bulimia, shattered dreams and how the music industry can leave even apparently successful stars penniless. The final episode, filmed live to a sold out crowd at London’s Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, will be aired on ITV2 next Thursday 27th March. Tickets for the Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield concert go on general sale at 9am on Saturday 22nd March, in person at the Arena Box Office, by phone on 0114 256 5656 or online at www. motorpointarenasheffield.co.uk.

I said to the doctor, “I’m worried as whenever I go to visit my mother she gets my name wrong.” He looked up at me sympathetically and asked, “Is it Alzheimer’s?” I looked back at him in disgust and replied, “No, It’s Steve.” “I’m going to combine all of my old wristwatches to make a belt. What do you say to that?” “I’d say it’ll be a complete waist of time.” Went to an Irish auto repair shop today. McCanick’s. Can’t remember the last time I won anything on the lottery, but this week I won two quid. I forgot to buy my ticket! There’s a sultana near me cheating on it’s partner and I know a few raisins also being unfaithful. I’m an expert on currant affairs... Brussels has announced that Bisto have won the contract to be the sole supplier in Eurostar restaurant carriages. Yet another example of the EU gravy train. I can finally get rid of my case of two hundred 1980’s computers I’ve had on eBay for six months, now that a bloke in Mexico has just bought them. Adios, Amigas. “You can tell a lot about a person by the beer they drink” I said to a bloke at the bar. “Really?” he replied, “so what can you tell about me?” “You’re an ass” I said. “What makes you say that?” he asked. I said, “that’s my beer you’re drinking.” I asked my wife if she fancied an early night, “Well,” she said, “I believe Sir Lancelot was quite good looking.” Is it just me, or was music better when ugly people were allowed to make it? Guy in a library walks up to the librarian and says, “I’ll have a cheeseburger and fries, please.” Librarian responds, “Sir, you know you’re in a library, right?” Guy says, “Oh, sorry. [in a whisper] I’ll have a cheeseburger and fries, please.”

SPIRITUALISTS

studded with stars and starry haloes. Weekly Psychic Article by Psychic Glynis

This week I am looking at the Moon Angels, who possess many astrological powers. The Moon passes through many changes during the cycle of birth, growth, maturity, decline, death and re-birth. Medieval astrologers and magicians recognized that there are twenty eight lunar mansions, each having an associated angel corresponding to a certain day in the Lunar cycle. The Moon Angels have their origins in Judaism and it was the magi, or wise men of Babylon who first regarded the angels as minor deities that they could call upon. If we familiarize ourselves with the Moon Angels and their particular area of expertise, we will know when and from whom to ask for help in a particular moon phase. For example, if a boost of energy is needed, the time to ask is when the moon is waxing. In turn vitality will be increased, and you can face any challenge. I will now to gon to look in more detail at the lunar phases and the associated moon angel. New Moon Angels These Angels are seen as black shadowy forms with pale silver linings and a halo. Full Moon Angels These are glorious silver and gold angels,

Crescent Moon Angels These angels are surrounded by soft light, and some are portrayed with crescent moon haloes Waning Moon Angels These have white robes, adorned with shiny blue haloes and wings Waxing Moon Angels Surrounded by silver moonbeams, these angels have glowing golden wings. Waning Half Moon Angels These are unusual for angels in that they are dark-haired, with wings and a halo that shimmers gold and silver. Gibbous Moon Angel These angels wear robes of silver and gold and have long white hair. Waning Crescent Moon The angels of this phase are semitransparent with a star on their head-dress and silver grey wings. The easiest way to call upon an angel is through meditation. Ask the Angel for help in your troubles, and then wait for that lovely vision to appear. I find the most helpful are Raphael (for healing,) Michael (for problems,) Gabriel (for love and family matters) and Uriel for career help and guidance. In next week’s article I shall be looking at a special angel for each day of the week.

Anxious thoughts may take you further away from a goal than towards it. Yet, perhaps you need to explore a variety of possibilities if you’re to make the break. As Mercury aligns with Saturn, an exciting opportunity might be closer than you think and hiding in plain sight. Call for more…

A spur of the moment decision could change things dramatically. This week’s Sun Pluto link, hints that you may want to study an idea in greater depth, as the consequences of implementing it could make a positive difference Virgo. Call me now for more news and astral advice…

Top Darts Stars on Show AT HILLSBOROUGH STADIUM PRO DARTS MASTERS

Four of the world’s best professional Darts players, including two World Champions, will compete at Sheffield Wednesday Football Club in May. Tickets are on sale now for the inaugural SWFC Pro Darts Masters, which features a top quality quartet, all of whom are winners of major televised titles. This exclusive event will see the PDC’s second most successful player, James ‘The Machine’ Wade, take to the stage alongside former Lakeside World Champions Mark Webster and Ted ‘The Count’ Hankey, with former Players Champion Paul Nicholson completing the star-studded line-up. Wade has amassed an impressive trophy haul of seven major titles to date, including victories in the prestigious Premier League, World Matchplay and World Grand Prix, while Webster’s crowning glory was his World Championship triumph in 2008. The Welshman, nicknamed ‘Spider’, has also enjoyed many runs into the latter stages of big tournaments and has appeared in the popular Premier League. Hankey and Nicholson are regarded as two of the most entertaining players in the sport due to their explosive personas on stage. But their charisma does not come at the expense of ability as Hankey was crowned World Champion in 2000 and 2009, while Nicholson, nicknamed ‘The Asset’ won the Players Championship Finals in 2010. And the Australian ace is looking forward to the show in Sheffield, which will take place on Saturday 17 May.

“I am excited about playing darts at Hillsborough. It is a historic stadium and a great venue to visit,” said Nicholson, the former World Cup finalist. “I know that they love their darts in the area as I have attended the Premier League there before so I can’t wait to put on a show for the crowd. “Obviously this is much more intimate than a big TV event so tickets will need to be snapped up quickly as, with the quality of the line-up, it is a night not to be missed.” Local darts players will also get the chance to take on the professionals on the night. Details will be released in due course. Tickets for this exciting event are available online at www.dartshop.tv, Tel: 08450 180 180 or www.hillsboroughstadium.com/events Tel: 0114 3240526

SHEFFIELD’S PAUL PASHLEY RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM Offering up a crisp, classic, yet contemporary sound smooth-voiced Paul Pashley finally unleashes his long-awaited debut album, ‘More..’produced and arranged by Iain Dixon. More than just a swing singer, Pashley demonstrates both versatility and range on this offering, seamlessly mixing beloved standards and incorporating elements of funk, rock and soul into the mix for good measure. Nestling amidst the twelve tracks are some outstanding original compositions, which already sound like future classics. Kicking things off to a smooth start, whilst oozing effortless class, Pashley’s signature style and rich velvety tones breathe new life into a trio of timeless standards. Opener 'Oh! Look At Me Now' is a shuffling arrangement with a pared back feel, complemented by sumptuous brass that allows Pashley’s rich voice to truly shine. This is followed up by the woozy Dinah Washington inspired 'Teach Me Tonight', with its considered delivery and laid back swing that grooves nicely along. Elsewhere ‘More', with its subtle nuances of trombone, is a hypnotic gem of a track inspired by Pashley’s love of Bobby Darin. Original track 'Fragile Like Crystal', with its sharp brassy stabs and gentle guitar, caresses your ear like a warm breeze. Pashley’s voice flows with an impassioned and assured delivery that is effortlessly smooth. This timeless and funky classic evokes thoughts of bikinis and martinis, culminating in a superb guitar solo from highly respected jazz fusion and funk player Mike Walker. Next up, 'Who Can I Turn To?' is a nod to the great Anthony Newley. Initially set to be an album closer, this melancholic track is an emotive, yet understated offering that finds Pashley’s voice reflective, yet pleading, smooth and heartfelt. The oft overdone ‘Mambo Italiano’ is given a fresh and modern edge, with an uplifting mariachi trumpet solo courtesy of 24 year-old Mike Davies. A breezy Latin jazz take this track sounds bold, crisp and contemporary. As far as covers go, few artists can say that theirs has been endorsed by the original artist’s mother,

THE MIGHTY GODS OF ROCK It seems that Sheffield has uncovered a new gem on the rock music scene. “THOR” are probably the liveliest rock band to grace the music circuit since the heady days of “Bitter Suite” and the Rock Band of the 70s. Lee Dodge on vocals is the image of Thor himself (hence the name, he’s 6’6”), Kevin Hill (formerly of Duran Duran on lead guitar, Mike Cappry on bass, James Tulley on keyboards (played for Chubby Brown) and brother Joe Tulley on drums.

yet Pashley’s take on Thin Lizzy’s 'Dancing in The Moonlight' has been championed by none other than Philomena Lynott herself. On hearing the track Lynott described it as “a fabulous version of one of my favourite Philip’s songs” praising the “big band sound” and not to mention his “velvet tones”. On guitar duty is the legendary Chris Spedding, who played alongside Phil Lynott prior to the formation of Thin Lizzy. An effortlessly jazzy arrangement, with swelling horns is underpinned by a haunting guitar; the track is a triumph. His acoustic guitar take on Sam Cooke’s seminal classic ‘Cupid’ is a smooth, steady percussive rendition. Pashley’s vocals are soft, emotive and easy like Sunday morning. Another original track, the Latin flavoured ‘Muchachita', with its impassioned vocals and lilting tones instantly transports you to an exotic paradise. Aimed squarely at the European market, Pashley intones Hispanic promises in a seductive upbeat and playful manner. As a bold statement Pashley pays tribute to fellow Sheffield musicians The Arctic Monkeys, making a great cover of their modern classic 'I Bet You Look Good On the Dancefloor'. Pashley embraces the melodic qualities of the original, serving up a cool take that sashays with bold brass and a swagger. By contrast, an uproaring rock-infused take on 'Sunshine of Your Love' stomps along at a relentless pace, whilst retaining its jazzy edges accentuated by dramatic horns and Pashley’s commanding and assured delivery. Rounding off the collection is the bright and breezy interpretation of Ray Charles 'I’ve Got a Woman'. This dramatic take goes for the jugular, packing a punch with swirling organs, brass, providing a perfect showcase for Pashley’s bluesy vocals, dripping with soul, whilst retaining that all important element of jazz. Overall Pashley’s first collection offers swagger, sass, swing and soul enveloped in a tidy smooth package. He is backed by twelve world class arrangements and a wealth of talented musicians that contribute to an outstanding debut. Pashley retains his trademark smoothness, whilst flirting with both contemporary and classic styles. A consummate showman, the album reflects the multi-faceted artist Pashley is today. A solid and cohesive debut, this should ensure a successful career for this bright talent with even more to come.. To buy the first copies of the album ‘More..’ or to find out more information about Paul Pashley, visit the site www.paulpashley.com.

Thor don’t just do a gig. They do a lively run around show in full Thor costume – full hammer and all. Their experience is reflected in the quality of music the re-produce on stage. Music selections include:- Van Halen , AC.DC, Queen, Led Zepplin, Journey, ZZ Tops, Bon Jovi, Mettalica and much more. Every venue Thor have played has had a guaranteed return gigs. For all you serious rock music fans you cannot afford to miss “THOR”. Coming to a venue near you.

a connection with our colleagues. I’m supporting Great Brew Break to help raise vital funds for older people’s services and to help bring people back together.” Felicity Kendal, Royal Voluntary Service Ambassador As a nation built on the tradition of a cup of tea and its enduring social warmth − Royal Voluntary Service volunteers serve thousands of cups of tea every week to those in need and its mobile tea vans were a common site as far back as wartime Britain − the looming death of the tea round represents a significant shift in the culture. “A cup of tea is so collectively comforting to people in Britain, that its power can never be underestimated. For older people that don’t see anyone from one day to the next a cup of tea and a chat means everything. My tea intake has increased considerably while writing my book and I will certainly be raising a mug to Great Brew Break in April. No matter who you are, a good brew break helps keep you going.” Stephen Fry, Great Brew Break supporter “We know first-hand how important a cup of tea and a little bit of shared time can be to a person’s life, whether that’s a happy workplace or cheering up on older person who might not have seen anyone else all week. We are all busy, but taking that small amount of time to talk and share a cup of tea is beneficial to everyone’s day. I want to encourage the nation’s bosses to do their bit to save the humble tea break by pledging to make tea for their colleagues and raise funds for Great Brew Break.” Great Brew Break events will take place from 28 April to 4 May, with bosses making the tea, vintage tea parties and simple tea breaks.

CAMRA CELEBRATES ANOTHER BRILLIANT BUDGET FOR BRITISH BEER DRINKERS

“CAMRA is delighted to see the Chancellor implementing an unprecedented second consecutive cut of a penny in beer duty. This is not only about keeping the price of a pint affordable in British pubs but helping an industry which has been in overall decline continue on its long road to recovery. CAMRA cares greatly about the future of the Great British pub and it is clear from this Budget announcement that the Government do too. “Keeping the price of a pint affordable is vital for the longterm health of the pub sector and CAMRA would hope this latest vote of confidence in British pubs will go some way to slowing the rate of closures,

by encouraging more people to make use of their local this summer. “No doubt many of CAMRA’s 160,000 members will be raising a glass to the Chancellor this evening to toast another brilliant Budget for British beer drinkers.”

READERS LETTERS

REMEMBERING THE COCKLE MAN

My partner and I read with amusement and great interest your article in the Mercury regarding the cockle man. My partner was a cockle man for twenty years and loved every minute, and the person you described is him to a “tee”. We have seen Carry On Cabaret and even their “Demented Cockle Man” looks a bit like my partner and we felt that they had modelled this character on him. His name is Bernie Walker and he really enjoyed meeting different people and having a chat. He used to visit pubs and clubs both in Sheffield and Rotherham and was welcomed everywhere he went. People used to really look forward to him coming and enjoying his seafood. As you said, he progressed to selling sweets and he did

sell onion bhajis even selling a yoghurt dip to accompany them. He had to time his visits to the clubs very carefully because he could not sell anything if they were playing bingo or the bands were playing. This meant him rushing from club to club, then having a bit of a rest while he waited for the bingo to finish. He used to stop at one club in Rotherham and have a game of bingo and sell his seafood before rushing onto his next calls. Unfortunately, due to the economy, some of the pubs and clubs he visited closed down and he was finding it increasingly difficult to keep the round going. Eventually, he reluctantly retired. However, he does keep saying that he will do one last round just to see how it goes. In answer to your question – No, he has not retired to Bulgaria, but coincidently we are going on holiday to Bulgaria in September!!

MAGIC AM with Glenn Pinder

This weekend it’s Mothering Sunday. A day where mums around the world should be shouted about from the highest roof tops! Mums are a special kind of hero that have super powers no one else possesses. I mean who else has a kiss that makes everything better? Who else can play the good guy, the bad guy and the joker all in one day? Who else can keep many plates spinning and still smile for the camera? Has a hug that makes bad things go away? Time spent together, whether in person or on the phone, is the true meaning of Mother’s Day and I’m sure a box of chocolates or a bunch of flowers might be an added bonus.This weekend my wife and I will be spending the day with our mums and our son with his mum and grandmothers. I hope you have a happy day too! “All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” - Abraham Lincoln On the Magic AM breakfast show this week I am giving away tickets to see Status Quo at Doncaster race Course plus a chance to actually meet the band. Listen in after 9am tomorrow morning to find out how you could be a winner! Hope you can join the Magic AM team and me supporting Age UK Wrap up and Run in Graves Park this Sunday from 9:30am.. As the race takes place on Mother’s Day there will also be lots of treats in store for Mum. All funds raised are going towards Age UK’s Spread the Warmth campaign. Details are here www.magicam.co.ukHoping you can join me for breakfast weekday mornings on Magic AM from 6 10am and across the day on 990, 1305, 1548 AM, Digital Radio and online at magicam.co.uk for just great songs.

CLUBHISTORIANS.CO.UK by Ruth Cherrington

We’re looking back a bit this week to some of the posts on the Sheffield Forum around 6 years ago, about different clubs in the area. One includes historical information about different acts that were playing in Sheffield Clubs, as advertised in ‘Our Clubs’, dated 9th June 1971. The person who posted this was very familiar with local clubs as their father had been concert sec at the AEU club. The turns include reference to the mysterious ‘Miss X’ who was on twice at the Shiregreen WMC that week. Now, this is the club that achieved international fame due to a group of men taking off their clothes during the film the Full Monty. Did Miss X do something similar, I wonder? Over at the Eastwood View WMC there was the more wholesome entertainment provided by Patrick McClusky and Pam Hough. Midhill WMC had Steve Denton and the Mystery Train whilst the Hillfoot WMC were featuring the R S Jays Show. Edith was on the organ at the Woodhouse West End with the The Heatwave also appeared. Probably Edith was a regular feature at the club. Many clubs in the 70s had their own resident organ player and perhaps a drummer as well who started off the evening’s entertainment, filled in between acts and rounded things off at the end. Over at the Ecclesall Non- Political, which is a great name, there was Sir James Linacre. I wonder what he did exactly? Other clubs mentioned in the post about June 1971 were Pitsmoor, Queens Road, La Plata, Tinsley, Burnaby Street, Dial House, the Burngreave, Philadephian, Burngreave Liberal, Darnall Aqueduct, Limes, the Foundry Workers and Grimesthorpe Social. That’s quite an impressive list yet even more clubs would have been found around the Sheffield area at the time, with the early 70s being seen as the peak for their activity, before decline set in. Some of the other acts mentioned for that week include people who may have had strong local followings: Duggie Brown, Doreen Beales, Turnstyle, the Chapman Brown Show, Lynne Perrie and The Duane Marcel Four. With so many clubs in the area, entertainers probably had plenty of offers to do their turns. I wonder what did happen to Miss X, however, and just why was she so popular? When the Dial House burned down, some member joined the Hillsborough Club and could be entertained there. Sheffield may have fewer clubs now but still offers a good club ‘scene.’

SHEFFIELD’S AWARD WINNING FAY RETURNS TO TOWN Fresh from winning Best Group and Best Album at the BBC Radio 2 folk Awards 2014 with The Full English project, Sheffield’s very ownFay Hield is back on the road with her regular band The Hurricane Party. Born knowing how to carry a tune, Fay Hield is a singer who has the rarer gift of knowing how to go straight to the heart of a song. Her debut solo album ‘Looking Glass’, was released in September 2010 by prestigious folk label, Topic Records and quickly earned Fay many accolades as well as a nomination for the Horizon Award at the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Fay’s second album, Orfeo, was released in May 2012, again on Topic Records and has gained rave reviews in the press and plenty of airplay across the UK and beyond. Orfeo features 11 superbly arranged traditional songs, including lead track, ‘Sir Orfeo’, based on a 13th Century retelling of the epic supernatural Greek fable, Orpheus and Eurydice. Fay’s gift for unearthing rare and interesting material is well represented throughout, including the obscure but beguiling nursery rhyme ‘Naughty Baby’ and the feisty Lancashire mill-girl tour-de-force ‘The Old ‘Arris Mill’. An Anne Briggs inspired version of ‘The Cuckoo’ is included. In folklore, the bird’s call is often used as a signal heralding spring and the number of times it is heard during the season is said to translate into the number of years until a death or a marriage. The delightfully named ‘Tarry Trousers’, is a song Fay discovered through singer, Frankie Armstrong, but which was also well known by Dickens (and quoted in his novel, Dombey and Son). ‘Wicked Serpent’ meanwhile, originates from the US and is based on an incident relating

WHITECHAPEL INTERVIEW

By Kt Evans “I would say this album is not a typical, gorey, bloody death metal album…” reveals Phil Bozeman, lead vocalist of US deathcore clan Whitechapel. On tenterhooks to reveal their fifth studio record ‘Our Endless War’ on 29th April through Metal Blade, we caught up with the fierce frontman to talk vocal techniques, overcoming personal obstacles and aspirations for the forthcoming summer months… Whitechapel personify all that is gritty deathcore within the international market. Whether it be live on stage in front of thousands of dedicated fans, headlining festivals across the globe or simply blasted through the stereo, the six piece from Knoxville’s aims are crystal clear…passion. It’s unquestionable to deny the emotion that runs through the veins of Whitechapel. Their recent single ‘The Saw Is The Law’ is a powerful taster of things to come for the band who are eagerly awaiting the world to hear their proudest release to date; ‘Our Endless War.’ A concoction of pride, fearlessness alongside hell wrenching vocals, this release follows on from their 2012 self-titled belter. In an attempt to shift their stance from ‘gorey, death metal,’ this album however marks a personal ambition to project a more sensitive side to what we currently connect with deathcore. “The new album is relatable, people can actually understand it and apply their own feeling to it,” explains Phil who aside from fronting the band, is also a successful spiritual guidance coach…honestly! “It’s not as disgusting as people might expect! Our first album was way more gorey but I think we’ve moved away from that a lot on the new record. But this one talks a lot about struggle and depression. Other albums don’t cover that, so ‘Our Endless War’ is very personal to me.” Having already released their debut single off the album on 26th February, ‘The Saw Is The Law’ diarizes the powerful feelings felt towards the bands fans and supporters. A culmination of twisted riffs alongside vicious vocal screams, a close inspection of the lyrics delves deep into the heart and soul of Whitechapel. “Deafening ears and shutting mouths, come and join our side, welcome to the deep south” may sound typical Whitechapel-esque however thrown together with the anthemic nature of the track and the band have landed themselves a golden ticket. “It is us standing up for ourselves and feeling on top of the world. It’s us as a band, the true supporters

to the unfortunate Timothy Myrick of Springfield Mountain when he died after having been bitten by a rattlesnake one August. The focus of the first album was Fay’s rich and unadorned voice. While Orfeo finds her once again exploring lesser known traditional songs, this time, the new recordings also see Fay confidently fronting a stellar supporting cast; The Hurricane Party. Consisting of some of the finest folk musicians working today The Hurricane Party features ; Andy Cutting (button accordions, melodeon), Rob Harbron (English Concertina, fiddle, vocals), Sam Sweeney (fiddle, viola, cello, nyckelharpa, vocals) and Roger Wilson (fiddle, guitar, mandolin and vocals). Alongside her burgeoning performing career, Fay also lectures at the University of Sheffield. Her PhD thesis ‘English Folk Singing and the Construction of Community’ was completed in 2010 and she is currently conducting research into transmission of musical heritage for the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Fay and her partner, Bellowhead front man Jon Boden, also find time to run two folk clubs – Royal Traditions (in their local village of Dungworth) and Bright Phoebus (Sheffield). Throughout her solo work and with The Full English, Fay feels an especially strong connection to her songs. Her choice of material and the delivery of it, reflect a rare sensitivity and appreciation of the tradition whilst remaining naturalistic and highly distinctive. Fay Hield & The Hurricane Party will appear at a range of key festivals throughout the summer of 2014 after undertaking a April UK tour which will see them performing at The Greystones in Sheffield. Fay Hield and the Hurricane Party Tuesday 8 April The Greystones Greystones Road, Sheffield, S11 7BS Show 8pm Tickets £12/£10 conc. Tel 0114 266 5599 www.mygreystones.co.uk who will be with us until the end. We just felt ultra bad ass when we were writing that song!” What is music without personality? What is a record without emotion? What does it mean to expose your heart and soul into something, allowing strangers to read your handwritten ‘diary?’ To Whitechapel, this is the key to ‘Our Endless War.’ Forget holding back on either speaking their thoughts or opinions, Phil discuss his favourite track on the forthcoming release. “The last song (Diggs Road) is a personal song to me. It means the most to me on the album. It’s about me and the troubles I went through when I was younger. It’s emotional for me when I listen back to the lyrics. Although it wasn’t a particularly difficult song to write, it’s very personal when I hear it back.” Since their formation back in 2006, Whitechapel have built up a ridiculous repertoire of intense albums, singles and releases all fronted by lead vocalist Phil Bozeman. If you’re one of the lucky ones to have seen the band live, you will agree with us when we say…how the bloody hell does a vocal scream as brutal as Phil’s come out of a human? Because let’s be honest here, we’ve all tried screaming like a metal God whilst under the grasps of Jagermeister but achieved only a sore throat and mouth as dry as Ghandis flip flop. Voodoo magic? You decide. “I wouldn’t say my voice was put on strain because of the album, it has more to do with age and time. Don’t get me wrong, my voice doesn’t go out on me but let’s be honest, we’re not meant to make those noises in our throats! I don’t have too much difficulty with it. I just stick to drinking plenty of water, it helps me the best. “ Note to self, never try to be Phil Bozeman again. Ever. Laryngitis is never pleasant. So what next for Whitechapel? Although nothing confirmed as of yet for appearances in the UK, hold your horses until May for some pretty massive announcements. “A lot of it isn’t set in stone but the string of shows in April in the US is confirmed so we can’t wait for that! We will announce soon for May or June. Whether we’ll be back in the UK? That remains to be seen. We always have great shows in the UK, it’s one of our favourite places to play. Nothing against other countries but it’s really easy to interact with UK fans. I think this has a lot to do with the theme of our band which was based around England and obviously the band name named after an area in London. That connection we have is great.” Whitechapel have turned a corner. Forever pioneers of their game, the band however have touched the genre with a fresh twist of personality and deep rooted emotion not only through their forthcoming release, but with a sensational connection with their fans. So…are you up for the Whitechapel challenge? ‘Our Endless War’ is out on 29th April through Metal Blade.

angler’s corner

by Clint Walker

I’ve had a fun session this week, one where I’ve caught fish too! I have been back on a Cheshire club water in pursuit of carp which run to around 24lb, but this time I’ve had a completely new bait product from my sponsor Marukyu to trial. I usually enjoy getting to use a new product for the first time, especially if it’s not available in the shops yet, so I was looking forward to putting the new stuff to good use.... I try to keep my rigs simple, so a short NGT Liquid Wire heavy braid hooklink would ensure my rigs were kept flat on the lake bed, a size 6 hook and an uncomplicated hair rig baited with Marukyu Credence Fruit Spice boilies finished everything off. I’m currently experimenting with a longer hair than usual and my bait comprised an 18mm bottom bait which I’d cut in half and balanced with a 14mm pop up to provide neutral buoyancy. The whole thing was just nicked into a bag of the new product and cast to the margins of island. I hadn’t even set the bobbin when the first take plucked the line from my fingers! After a short but spirited battle, a cracking mid double lay in the folds of the net and this was quickly photographed, treated and returned safely so I could continue my investigations with the new bait. The next fish came a short time later, and I was most disappointed to find that it was towing at least two rigs, a backlead tied to a fixed loop (yes, really!) and another lead on a jammed safety clip which had obviously caused some unfortunate damage to the fish. I hate to see this happen, to my mind, there isn’t really an excuse for poorly tied rigs, many versions are available pre-tied, there are thousands of articles both online and in magazines that demonstrate how to tie safe rigs, but still it occurs! If you are not sure that your rig is safe, consider what happens if your line breaks above the leader; can everything come off the mainline? If not, then you are probably not using a good rig....change it! Again, this fish was rested, treated with a carp care kit and returned; hopefully to heal up and fight another day.... After the expected lull in the middle of the day, I started to pick up a few tremors on the rod tip indicating that fish were back in the swim. In truth, I was considering packing up, so had just reached down to lift up the rod when the adjacent bobbin hit the blank with a resounding slap as my margin bait was picked up. This fish careered through my second rod as it charged off so a little bit of nifty footwork was required to clear the line, but this too was soon in the net and weighed at just under 16lbs and finished the day off nicely. The trial was a success; I’m not going to tell you that these new baits are the be all and end all of carp fishing, but they worked first time out and filled me with confidence as they hadn’t been used on the water before. Confidence is a big thing for many anglers and if you could bottle it, you could sell tons of it! These new baits inspire confidence though, and that’s half the battle, so you can be sure I’ll be using them from now on! The bait will be in shops soon, and then I’ll be able to tell you what it’s all about!

racing form by Timelord

This Saturday the new turf flat season officially opens with the Lincoln and Spring Mile handicaps at Doncaster, with the AW flat season continuing at Kempton where the Magnolia Stakes and Roseberry Handicap are two of the feature races. In Dubai the World Cup comes to its climax with some very intriguing clashes of horses from around the world. The Channel 4 coverage comes from Doncaster and Kempton with seven races that are quite perplexing at present, with horses declared for both venues (including some for more than one race), which all adds up to a very complicated scenario. The first race scheduled to be broadcast is the Brocklesby Conditions Stakes at 2.05. This is for 2yos and, with none having set foot on the racecourse before is a totally unknown quantity, hence I make no selection – it is hard enough to pick them when there is something to go on!

Kempton: 2.20 Download the Betvictor App Now Magnolia Stakes, Listed, 4yo+, 1m 2f: Uramazin is entered here and for the Roseberry Handicap (following at 2.55). He earns the vote in whichever race he contests after finishing second to Rebellious Guest last time. The latter named is also entered in both races but, with a 6lb pull for two lengths, Uramazin should now have the upper hand of the two of them. Squire Osbaldeston also produced a good time figure last time out and gets the first reserve slot followed next by (in order of preference): Modernstone; Trumpet Major; Rebellious Guest; and Pether’s Moon. 2.55 Follow @Betvictorracing Today Roseberry Handicap, 4yo+, 0-105, 1m 3f: Based on his last time out turf performance (on heavy ground at Windsor) at the end of last season Michael Stoute’s Vital Evidence could have a live chance here but, on this surface, Uramazin again gets first preference. If absent, the reserve list comprises (in order of preference): Vital Evidence; Blue Wave; Grendisar; Shavansky; Rebellious Guest; Presburg; and Viewpoint.

3.30 Victors Live Casino Now Live Handicap, Doncaster: 2.05 William Hill Download the App 4yo+, 0-105, 6f: The shortlist for this one contains (in alphabetical Brocklesby Conditions Stakes, 2yo, 5f: order): Absolutely So; Baddilini; Corporal No selection. Maddox; Discussion To Follow; Gabbiano; 2.40 William Hill – Bet on the Move Hoof It; Lancelot du Lac; Pearl Ice; Piscean; Cammidge Trophy, Listed, 3yo+, 6f: Trinityelitedotcom; and Upavon. Preference is Last year’s winner of this, Jack Dexter, had for Discussion to Follow who has an unbeaten a fine season finishing off with a win here in record of three from three on this surface and November and should again be in the mix at the gets weight from all bar Upavon. First reserve is death. Eton Rifles also goes well here and should Lancelot du Lac with further reserve positions be competitive in this along with Inxile, Captain held by: Hoof It; Absolutely So; Corporal Ramius, Jimmy Styles and Annunciation. Maddox; Piscean; Baddilini; Upavon; and Pearl Lancelot du Lac, Racy, Addictive Dream and Ice. Santefisio bring good AW form to the table and are all in with chances. However at this stage of Saturday selection summary (see above for the season it is difficult to know which ones are reserves in the event of non runners): primed and ready to go on this surface so I have Doncaster: eventually decided to select from those with 2.05 No selection the best last time out speed figures. Admittedly 2.40 Ninjago this could be deemed a risky approach, since 3.15 Invincible Hero many of them haven’t run since last year, but 3.50 Gunner Lindley in my view any other one carries similar (if not greater) risk. This has led to a chance being Kempton: taken on Ninjago, who competed last time in a 2.20 Uramazin, if absent Squire Osbaldeston fast-run contest at Ascot last October. Next best 2.55 Uramazin, if absent Vital Evidence could be Lucky Beggar followed by Tropics, Es 3.30 Discussion to Follow Que Love, Heaven’s Guest, Captain Ramius, Lancelot du Lac, Racy and Jack Dexter. With the Dubai World Cup meeting concluding 3.15 William Hill Spring Mile (Handicap), 4yo+, 1m: This is the consolation race for those balloted out of the Lincoln at the 48hour declaration stage. In looking at this I have again resorted to those that recorded good speed figures last time out which has provided a shortlist comprising: Gunner Lindley; Invisible Hero; Brownsea Brink; Farlow; Eurystheus; Naabegha; Tullius; Moonday Sun; Aint Got A Scooby; and Boots and Spurs. For me course and distance winner Invincible Hero just about earns a narrow vote over the rest. 3.50 William Hill Lincoln (Heritage Handicap), 4yo+, 1m: The 121 original entries were reduced to a mere 79 at the 5 day stage! With the first five home last year all entered again, 30 of the 79 having posted ratings in excess of 100 in my system last time out and several others coming here from good recent performances on the AW this race is a complete nightmare to unravel. My top lifetime ratings are held by: Charles Camoin; Hi There; Easter Sky; Justonefortheroad; Dubai Hills; Docofthebay; Gunner Lindley; Lord Aeryn; Dance and Dance; and Born to Surprise. The shortlist from last time out performance is as shown in the paragraph above for the Spring Mile. Gunner Lindley appears on both lists and therefore earns a somewhat un-confident vote in a very, very tricky race where the ground conditions, draw and fitness are all likely contributors to a wide open contest in which many hold good chances – remarks that apply equally to the preceding Spring Mile Handicap.

I have had a look at the eight races from Meydan and have a few suggestions for your consideration: Meydan: 1.10 Variety Club 1.45 Seismos 2.25 Long John 3.05 Hamza 3.45 Rich Tapestry 4.40 Blazing Speed 5.20 Cirrus des Aigles 6.05 Red Cadeaux Good Luck! Last week’s results: After non runners were taken out the final selections and results were: Kelso: 1.30 Trust Thomas – 7th @ 10/3 Newbury: 2.20 Bally Legend – 3rd @ 15/2 2.55 Run Ructions Run – won @ 11/2 3.30 Niceonefrankie – 6th @ 10/1 Lingfield: 2.40 Iptisam – 2nd @ 8/1 3.15 Expert – 5th @ 10/1 3.50 Vodkato – 11th @ 14/1 With one winner at 11/2 the financial outcome was a loss of 0.5 points to one point level stakes.


Millers & Rovers News 2013-14

ROVERS COME OUT ON TOP IN LOCAL DERBY It was cold and windy but it was a ‘derby’ game against Sheffield Wednesday so a big crowd was expected with the prospect of a good game to come. Rovers kicked off and the game soon developed into a midfield battle. Wednesday were first to win a corner in the 7th minute but Johnstone made a good catch. In the 10th minute Sharp got in a good strike but it was deflected for a corner but nothing came from it. Rain started falling steadily as both teams probed for a breakthrough and Wednesday had a good spell of pressure. A low cross from the left byline by Helan to the far post was put wide of the far post by the oncoming Lavery. Lee then had a go from 25 yards but put wide. Then it was Rovers turn to get forward, winning a corner in the 23rd minute. Minutes later and Rovers were awarded a free kick on their right, level with the eighteen yard line. Cotterill took the kick and squared the ball for the onrushing Coppinger to hit a terrific drive that Kirkland collected at the second attempt. After a heavy shower the rain stopped and play equalled out for a spell and then, in the 32nd minute, good play on the Rovers right between Coppinger and Duffy led to the latter feeding Sharp to the left of goal. His shot was blocked by Kirkland and BROWN was on to the loose ball to tap in for the first goal. Rovers continued to enjoy a good proportion of the play as the game ran down to the break, with the Owls desperate to hit back but they were having to defend more than attack. The game recommenced with the sun shining but the pace had slackened. Played at a more sedate pace play was even. Then, on 57 minutes, Best from the Wednesday left rifled in a shot from 30yards that Johnstone had to dive to his left to push away. Past the hour and Rovers were awarded a free kick on their left touchline. Cotterill placed on to the six yard line where Sharp, running in, chested it goalwards

but Kirkland managed to block and his defenders cleared. Wednesday then seemed to up a gear and pressed forward, winning a succession of corners that were well defended. Another corner to the Wednesday in the 77th minute was met with a firm header at the far post by Hutchinson but he put it over the bar. A stoppage of several minutes at this point ensued with Johnstone requiring treatment before being able to continue. Things began to hot up as the Wednesday pressed hard for an equaliser and began to show their frustration, particularly with the referee. The first booking of the game came in the 89th minute when Duffy was stopped unceremoniously by Buxton as he went through. In the 90th minute Rovers were awarded a free kick on their left just outside the angle of the penalty area. Cotterill went for the top far corner and it was going in until Kirkland got a hand to it and tipped it away. Five tension-filled minutes of added time were negotiated but the Rovers emerged unscathed and with a precious three points in the bag.

WE DUG DEEP

“We’ve had some illness in the camp this week, a few of the guys were struggling but that’s the character we have in this squad. I thought that togetherness, character and work ethic ran right through the team today. “It wasn’t the best we’ve played by any means, but sometimes you have to roll your sleeves up, dig deep and get a result which is exactly what we did- I thought the boys were fantastic today. “They were very much in the game and we know they’re in good form- they were outstanding on Tuesday night and we knew it was going to be a tough game for us. We had to start the game well and not concede early and weather the storm a little bit. But I thought after that we fully deserved the three points. “In the second half Chris Kirkland pulled off two fantastic saves, and it’s nice to get the three points without playing as well as you know you can do. Sometimes it’s even sweeter when you get three points through sheer hard work and grit and determination. “The Bournemouth game I feel has been a turning point for us. There was a lot of harsh words said from myself about that defeat, but it’s not just because of that game. We finally have players who are properly fit and I think this is the first time I have been able to pick a consistent team for three games in a row all season, and I think that consistency has shown in the way we’ve played on and off the ball. “Conditions weren’t great today but I just keep telling the players to keep doing the right things and working as hard as they can and we know we can get a result. “James Coppinger has been fantastic especially since coming in to cover at right back. And he’s not just been fantastic on the pitch, but he’s fantastic at the training ground as well. Sometimes when you talk about players being top professionals it means they haven’t got as much ability as others and their professionalism makes up for it, but this isn’t the case with James. Technically he’s great and the way he handles himself in and around the training ground is fantastic. He’s an example to everyone at this club. If you need to look at anybody in our squad to see what it takes to make it in football, you look straight at James. “We took the work load off the players this week deliberately, they had a couple of days off with today in mind. We took it right off them on the physical side of things because we knew that Wednesday were playing Saturday-Tuesday for a few weeks running and we needed to give the players a bit of rest with the view of them absolutely working their socks off against Wednesday for the full 90 minutes. “The players were at it all game for every single minute today which has shown in the result, so that’s why we decided to take the physical load off them in training. “We have tough games coming up every single week now. Today was equally as tough- they are a difficult side to play against and put you under lots of pressure, so Tuesday night will be no more difficult than today was. “What today’s result does do is take the pressure off us a little bit for Tuesday. That doesn’t mean we take our foot off the gas, I still believe there is more to come from the team and with 9 games left, rather than keep their standards where they are at the minute, I want them to improve even more. “Confidence is growing because we’re picking up results, looking solid and playing good football. In regards to us being safe now, no we’re not. At the end of January we were eight points clear and a couple of weeks later we were right back in the bottom three so we know how quickly you can get sucked back into it, but there is a real determination for that not to happen again.”

EVANS: IT WAS Local Football A HUGE WIN

by Michael Clarke

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans was delighted with his side after their 1-0 victory at Peterborough United stretched their unbeaten run to 13 games. Kieran Agard was felled in the area midway through the first half before dusting himself down and converting the deciding strike from 12 yards. “It’s a big victory against a super team,” Evans said after the game. “They’re strong in a number of areas but we’ve come and put in a magnificent away performance. I think the referee had a strong game and he had to because it was two committed teams as it always is when you come to London Road. It’s a real tough place to come and we’re just pleased to come away with three points. If it’s my player (for the penalty decision), I’m asking why he’s allowed the referee the chance to make a decision there but over the 90 minutes today we deserved the three points and the best chance of the game came our way as well when Nicky Adams could have finished the game but their goalkeeper made a terrific save.” It moves the Millers up into fourth position, and Evans was quick to praise his players and the large travelling support who made the journey the A1, but tell them that nothing has been achieved just yet. “We’re pleased, we’ve had a lot of effort and commitment out there, but we don’t gloat, we just go away and it’s really tough to get in those play offs and we’ll just continue to work hard and see where it takes us. We came here today, worked hard, with a magnificent support who backed us and they deserve enormous credit. The players won’t talk about the play offs, and neither will the Chairman, because nothing has been achieved until it’s guaranteed.”

County Senior League League Cup Semi-Final Penistone Church of the Premier Division were made to work hard to defeat Sheffield Bankers of Division One in the League Cup Semi-Final at Sandy Lane on Thursday. The Premier Division outfits superior quality came out in the end, as they won the tie 4-2 to progress to the final where they will face fellow Premier Division high-flyers Houghton Main. Premier Division Houghton Main inflicted league leaders Oughtibridge’s first defeat since mid-December, by beating them 3-0 at Middlecliffe Lane. Nicky Harper, Kieran Hirst and Jack Waldron scored the goals for the in-form Houghton Main, who were the only team in the top six to win on Saturday. Handsworth were back to winning ways midweek, following three straight losses. They were 3-0 winners over Everest at Oliver’s Mount. However, they were held 1-1 draw on Saturday against sixth placed Stocksbridge Park Steels Reserves. The draw leaves them 12 points off Oughtibridge’s lead, with four games spare. Two goals from Chris Esberger helped Millmoor Juniors to a 3-2 home win over third placed Penistone Church. Prior to the game Penistone had only conceded three goals in the league this year. Goals from Craig Rouse (2) and Luke Bamforth gave Wombwell Main a important 3-0 away win over Ecclesfield Red Rose. The win is enough to take last years’ League Cup winners up two places from the foot-of-the-table. Swinton Athletic continued their good form, with a 3-0 home win over lowly Everest. It is Swinton’s third consecutive win, in which they have not conceded a goal. Goals from Dale Brettoner, Richard Gomersall, Corey Lowe and 17 year old Ryan Smith secured Athersley Recreation Reserves a comprehensive 4-0 home win over struggling High Green Villa.The loss means High Green slip to the foot-of-the-table and have only won once in the league since October. Division One League leaders Joker FC’s 11 game unbeaten streak came to an end on Saturday, as they were beaten at home 3-2 by Silkstone United. Jamie Dixon starred for Silkstone bagging a brace. Second placed Wickersley managed to take advantage of Joker’s slip-up to cut their lead to 10 points (they also have two games in hand). They were 2-1 winners away against Hallam Reserves. Wickersley will be hoping Silkstone can repeat their efforts next week, when they take on the league leaders again. Jubilee Sports were 2-1 winners away against Thorncliffe thanks to goals from Josh Statham and Lee Grocock. They remain in third place, 11 points off the pace, with four games spare. Rich Williams scored the only goal to give Rotherham Town a 1-0 away win over Thorpe Hesley. Rotherham will also fancy their chances in the title race, sitting in fourth place 12 points off the lead with three games in hand. Penistone Church Reserves heaped more woe on Sheffield Bankers following their League Cup Semi-Final loss, beating them 6-2 at the Memorial Ground. James Tomlinson (2), Peter Hobson, Tom Council, Jake Schofield and Oliver Robinson scored the goals for Pensitone, who scored more than four goals at home for the fourth time this season. Jamie Hewitt scored four times, Gary Eades three and Oliver Woodhead twice for Sheffield Athletic in their 9-1 away win over struggling Davy FC. Strangely, Davy won the reverse fixture 2-0 only two weeks ago. Division Two League leaders North Gawber Collliery’s impressive offensive and defensive record was improved once again on Saturday, as they recorded a 5-0 over Bramley Sunnyside. They have the best attack and defence in the County Senior League and are 10 games unbeaten in the league. Their lead at the too on Saturday was extended to six points, as second placed Kingstone United were beaten 2-1 at home by Sheffield Lane Top. New Bohemians recorded only their second league win of 2014, with a 2-1 home win over third placed AFC Dronfield. James Donohue scored both goals for the Bohemians . Gavin Davis and Stacy Sharif both scored twice for Caribbean Sports, as they claimed their first win since January with a 4-2 win over Maltby Main Reserves at the Caribbean Sports Club. It has been a strange week for Worsbrough Bridge Athletic Reserves and Sheffield FC Reserves, as they met twice in the space of four days. On Wednesday night, Sheffield FC beat Worsbrough 2-0 at Park Road, but on Saturday Worsbrough returned the favour beating them 3-0 at Davy Sports Ground. Kiveton Park moved up a place to third-bottom in the table, with a vital 3-1 away win over Boynton Sports at the Civil Service Ground.

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY NEWS 2 13-14 OWLS LOSE OUT IN SOUTH YORKS DERBY AT DONNY SWFC NEWS www.swfc.co.uk The Owls slipped to a 1-0 defeat away at Doncaster on Saturday in a fiery South Yorkshire derby. The game was settled by Chris Brown’s first half strike, as the forward scored the simplest of goals from close range on the rebound. Wednesday rallied after the interval but could not find a way through as Rovers continued their climb away from the Championship drop zone. There was a terrific atmosphere inside the ground at kick off with the away end at full capacity as 4,300 Owls fans made the short hop to the Keepmoat. After an even first 15 minutes, Wednesday began to assert their authority on the game and had two good chances to take an early lead. Following a sustained period of pressure, Lewis Buxton brought a good low stop from Sam Johnstone after a partially cleared corner. Then moments later, Jeremy Helan stole a march on his marker and fizzed a firm ball into the middle for Leon Best, who could only prod wide from a central position. James Coppinger fired the first warning shot of the game for Rovers with a stinging drive from 20 yards that the returning Chris Kirkland saved and gathered at the second attempt. But it was Doncaster who got the all-

important first break in front of goal just past the half hour mark. Billy Sharp sprung the offside trap and struck a firm shot that Kirkland saved, but the ball fell kindly to Brown who was lurking on the goal line to tap in and give Rovers the lead. The goal proved somewhat of a turning point, as the hosts finished the first half on the front foot with the attacking impetus. The half time break allowed the Owls to regroup and ten minutes after the restart, Chris Maguire demonstrated excellent technique from 25 yards to volley on target but Johnstone made a strong onehanded stop to deny the Scot. In a bid to freshen up the attack, Stuart Gray sent Benik Afobe into the action in place of Atdhe Nuhiu but shortly after that change, Rovers almost doubled their lead. David Cotterill’s dangerous free kick picked out Paul Keegan in the centre, whose header was superbly stopped at point-blank range by Kirkland. With 15 minutes left on the clock, Wednesday were still well in the hunt

for an equaliser but struggled to turn possession into clear cut chances. Sam Hutchinson powered a header just over the bar from a Maguire corner but as the clock ticked down, there was a sense it would not be the Owls’ day. As the game entered stoppage time, Kirkland produced the save of the match to deny Cotterill sealing the game from a free kick 20 yards from goal. But Wednesday could not find a way through the Rovers backline in the five minutes of added time as the hosts continued their good run in the Championship and climb away from danger. Doncaster: Johnstone, Quinn, Husband, Duffy, Brown, Sharp, Cotterill, Keegan, Wellens, Meite, Coppinger Owls: Kirkland, Buxton, Loovens, Oneweyu, Helan, Maguire, Lee, Palmer (J Johnson 75), Lavery (Hutchinson 50), Nuhiu (Afobe 63), Best

Stuart Gray was equally frustrated and disappointed following the 1-0 defeat at Doncaster on Saturday. The Owls’ head coach saw his side go down to a Chris Brown goal at The Keepmoat Stadium but insisted his side would have taken all three points had they taken chances before Rovers converted. Gray said: “I’m annoyed because we are better than that. “I’m frustrated as well because we had a great chance to score in the first half, and others, but didn’t take it. “If you take your chances you win games and I’m sure, with the way we were playing, I would be talking here about three points instead of no points. “Doncaster had one real chance in the first half and although we thought the lad Brown was offside, they took it. “For us, we played so well against a very good QPR side in midweek and maybe today was just a game too far. “Doncaster didn’t have a game in midweek and I think it showed at times. “I couldn’t fault the effort or the commitment of the players but I think the quality wasn’t quite there.” On a more positive note, Gray is pleased the Owls are presented with a quickfire chance to get back to winning ways: He added: “The good thing is that we play Brighton on Tuesday on our own patch where we have been so impressive recently. “That’s one of the benefits of having a packed schedule, you get the chance to put things right very quickly. “We were backed by a packed away end today and we really wanted to put on a show for them but it wasn’t to be.”

As he finished the game at Deepdale, EDWARDS converted with a rightFreeman started at left-back and with footed effort. Baxter clipped the side-netting with the vocal backing of the Lane, the Blades made a very positive start. Just four minutes had elapsed when Murphy’s cross was touched by Baxter for Scougall to shoot, which was pushed away by Ikeme. Jacobs dinked past three tacklers and fired at Howard before the visitors took the lead, fortuitously, on 13 minutes. HENRY delivered a cross from the right and the run of Edwards took the attention of Howard, allowing the ball to drop into the corner of the net. The Blades attempted to hit back

a 25-yard free-kick and Davies took over from Flynn, whilst Clarke wasted two good chances for the visitors - he strayed offside when converting Henry’s cross and then shot over after good work from Edwards. Porter was introduced for Baxter and the Blades continued to battle. Murphy’s effort was deflected wide after Maguire’s burst out of defence and a Porter header was collected by Ikeme. Paynter replaced Freeman for the closing stages as United looked to get back in the game but five minutes of added time only could herald two penalty appeals but referee Friend remained consistent and awarded nothing. Blades: Howard, Brayford, Maguire, Flynn (Davies 62), Doyle, Baxter (Porter 66), Collins, Coady, Scougall, Murphy, Freeman (Paynter 88). Unused: McGinn, Long, Khan, Dimaio. Wolves: Ikeme, Doherty (Ricketts 75), Edwards, Stearman, Batth, Henry, Clarke, McDonald, Evans (Price 62), Golbourne, Jacobs (Sako 90).

NOT MUCH BETWEEN THE TEAMS MANAGERʼS VIEW www.sufc.co.uk

Nigel Clough refused to be too despondent after the Blades slipped to defeat on the day of the Club’s 125th birthday. A goal in each half ensured that league leaders Wolves gatecrashed the party and also ended United’s 11-match unbeaten run. Afterwards, though, Clough remained positive, saying: “There was not much between the teams, we said it would be a good measure for us and it certainly was. The key was that they took their chances and we didn’t. “We had the best chance of the game through Stefan Scougall early on, had two good penalty appeals turned down and they have cleared one off the line from John Brayford. “Wolves are the best team in the league and if you are going to lose your unbeaten run it might as well be to the team at the top of the table. “We did well for long spells, you have to be careful because Wolves are dangerous, Edwards breaks from midfield and the wingers are a threat. You have to stay in the game for as long as possible and I thought that if we could have got a goal at any time then we would have been back in the game.”
