COPLEYʼS COLUMN

It is always very sad when you discover that somewhere of which you have fond memories is no longer there. The Bradway Hotel, my very first local now has the windows boarded up. What wonderful memories I hold of this great hostelry, run by Jane and Albert Lawrence, when I first discovered the ambience and pure pleasure of having a few beers with really nice people. I refer to the time when the Lowedges estate had just been built, the majority of people coming from Attercliffe, and it was a refreshing change socialising with genuine people, as opposed to the jumped up nouveau riche who had relocated to my birthplace of Bradway Road. These were real people, with no pretentions of grandeur, and many became firm friends. It makes me wonder what could have been done to save this great part of my youth. Perhaps a clue might lie in what I witnessed on Saturday night in the Miner’s Arms in Dronfield Woodhouse, a super pub, excellently run by Jenny and Mark Bingham. It is a pub that I should use more often, but I can’t go in them all, and so I was pleased to attend on Saturday to see again a band that had impressed me a couple of weeks before, the Six25’s. The word had obviously spread, as the pub was absolutely heaving, which was great to see. This band is very talented, musically proficient, and well led by lead singer, ex solo performer Maria McRae. They worked their socks off, performing a great range of material from the sixties to the present day. A bit of a shock to me was when my new found friends Amanda and Donna got up to add backing vocals to ‘Mustang Sally’ and were surprisingly very good. This lively band had a few up dancing in the little space available due to the capacity crowd, and although I have reported on this band recently, I make no apologies for mentioning them again as they provided me and everyone else a very enjoyable evening. I thought how nice it was that each band member sought me out to thank me for the publicity. I strongly recommend a visit to their website to find out about future gigs, and any pub

or club wanting a busy night to get them booked in. Now that Gary Phillips has left the Forest Showbar, frying fish and chips at Meadowhead Fish Bar with long time business partner Norman Bottom, and excellent quality they are, it gives him an opportunity to concentrate on his singing career, and Johnny Howe at the Victoria in Dronfield has been quick off the mark by offering him a regular Thursday night residency commencing on 28th April. Gary guested at the open mic night last Wednesday and showed his class. This is great news for me to have my very close pal and favourite entertainer within walking distance of my house. I have always advocated that the best job in the world is that of football manager, as it is the only job that if you get it all wrong, you are given a handsome pay off, and several clubs immediately want to set you on. Just how much they receive has just been revealed and it is amazing. Roy Hodgson was at the helm at Liverpool for just one hundred and ninety two days for which with severance pay included, he received £8.8 million which equates to £45,833 per day, and was immediately appointed manager of West Bromwich Albion. Luis Phillipe Scolari and his assistants received £12.6 from moneybags Chelsea, Manchester City allegedly paid Mark Hughes £3 million having sacked him, and big man Sam Allardice got the double up receiving three million having been sacked by Blackburn Rovers, and getting the same from Newcastle United. The prospect of some thrilling local derbies next season were enhanced by Chesterfield winning yet again, walking away with the Division two title, Sheffield Wednesday beating Colchester and the most defining result being Crystal Palace beating Barnsley making the Blades avoidance of relegation most unlikely. Last nights result at QPR surely sees United joining Wednesday, and hopefully, Chesterfield in division 1. The most worrying aspect of this is the sudden disappearance of some well know Blades supporters lately who were most keen to voice their views earlier on in the season.

Weekly Wit With... ALBERT SNODGRASS

One sunny day Jake and John were driving down the road in Jakes car when he suddenly just drove through a red traffic light. John thought this was a bit odd. When Jake drove through the second red light, John decided to pipe up and ask him why he kept driving through lights when they are red. Jake answered by saying “It was something that his Dad had taught him”. Then all of a sudden Jake came up to a green traffic light and started slowing down. John asked him why he was slowing down for a green green. Jake answered by saying that “My Dad might be coming across the road”. Overweight American went to see his family doctor for some weight loss advice. The doctor advised that the best medicine was to run seven miles a day for forty days. The doctor promised, that would help him lose as much as fifteen pounds. The American followed the doctor’s advice, and, after forty days, he had indeed lost the fifteen pounds. He phoned the doctor and thanked him very much for the excellent advice which produced his weight loss results. At the end of the conversation, he asked one last question: “How do I get home, now that I am 280 miles away from home?” A repeat offender with a long criminal record was brought before the judge. Judge asks “Have you ever stole things?” Thief: Oh, now and then I suppose. Judge: And where have you stolen these things? Thief: Oh, here and there. Judge: Right then! Lock him up, officer. Thief: Hey Judge, when do I get out jail? Judge: Oh, sooner or later. A lady brings a duck into the veterinary clinic and says: “I think my duck is dead”. So the veterinarian takes a look at the duck, examines its heart, checks from head to tail and remarks: “Lady, your duck is dead”. The lady says: “No, I am not so sure, can you check into it a little bit further”. So he whistles and in comes his golden labrador dog. His dog puts his paws up on the table and sniffs the duck from front to back, shakes his head and leaves the room. The Vet says “Lady, your duck is dead”. The lady says: “No, No, No, I am not so sure that my duck is dead”. Lady asks “Can you triple check?” So he whistles again and in comes his cat. The cat jumps up on the table, sniffs the duck from head to tail, shakes his head and leaves the room. I’m sorry Lady, but your duck is dead!” The lady says: “Okay, I’ll accept that the duck is dead”. “Now how much do I owe you?” Well, the Vet says:” That will be £285”. The lady says: “£285 for what?” Well the Vet says: “The diagnostic was free. But the lab costs were £135 and the cat scan was £150”.

I get all kinds of free stuff being a journalist; publishers are always trying to ram something down my throat (don’t even think about making a joke) or thrusting something in my face (seriously, don’t), but, this week, rather than the usual reviews, I thought I’d do something a bit different and write about an event I was invited to: the Chochochip Japanese language day. Following the tsunami that devastated Japan last month, popularity for the Japanese language has never been higher, and our group gathered for three hours of lessons at nine thirty on a Saturday morning. That’s right, nine thirty! On a weekend! Now, it should be law that before noon on a Saturday and at least two o’clock on a Sunday afternoon should be abolished. In fact, the whole AM timeslot should be made illegal (after all, we all know it was invented by the Devil to punish the hard working*). The classes were informal and really very interesting. The teachers are all British nationals who understand the learning process; they’ll teach you current conversational Japanese in a way that’s fun! In fact, there’s not a lot that’s standard about these lessons, which were fast paced and full of energy – there’s plenty of standing up and practicing what you’ve learned here and not a text book in sight! After a break of Japanese tea and snacks, we finished the day with one to one sessions with native Japanese speakers. This was a great way to really lock in what you’ve learned (and it’s astonishing how much you can pick up with the right teacher). I came away feeling I had learned the basics of Japanese in just a few hours; in fact, just like the Japanese snacks, the day left me hungry for more. So, if you want to learn conversational Japanese in a way that’s devoid of the traditional classroom environment, then you need look no further than Chocochip. The next classes are running from May 12th to July 14th 2011, from 7-9pm at Victoria Hall Methodist Church. And you can find Chocochip at: www. facebook.com/chocochiplanguages or contact Amelia Cook at ameliacook.jp@gmail.com or by phone on 07580 637391.

NEWS 888.COM PREMIER LEAGUE DARTS

THE 2011 PDC 888.com Premier League Darts will be held on 15 consecutive Thursday nights from February-May, taking in the UK’s largest arenas for the sport’s most popular event. The PDC darts roadshow hits Sheffield at the Motorpoint Arena on the 14th April 2011. Tickets are now on sale priced £30, £20 (subject to booking fee). Eight stars of the PDC will compete in Premier League Darts, facing each other twice over the course of 14 league nights before the top four players compete in the play-offs at the Wembley Arena. The fixtures for Sheffield have now been drawn:James Wade v Simon Whitlock Mark Webster v Gary Anderson Terry Jenkins v Phil Taylor Raymond van Barneveld v Adrian Lewis GARY ANDERSON and Mark Webster will make their debuts in Premier League Darts in 2011 after being confirmed amongst the eight-player field for the tournament. Anderson’s rise to fourth in the PDC Order of Merit has seen him earn an automatic place in the Premier League Darts, which features the top four from the PDC Order of Merit plus four Wildcards in 2011. World number one Phil Taylor, the reigning Premier League Darts champion, is joined by new Ladbrokes. com World Darts Champion Adrian Lewis and Bodog.com World Grand Prix winner James Wade and Anderson as the automatic selections. Five-time World Champion Raymond van Barneveld, 2010 World Championship runnerup Simon Whitlock, 2007 Premier League Darts finalist Terry Jenkins and two-time PDC World Championship semi-finalist Webster are the four Wildcards. Webster, who won the 2008 Lakeside Championship before joining the PDC, is rewarded for a fine run of form recently, which saw him lead Wales to the Cash Converters World Cup of Darts final before he knocked out Taylor in reaching the World Championship semi-finals at Alexandra Palace. The league stage of Premier League Darts - which is screened live in its entirety by Sky Sports - will see the eight players face each other twice before the top four players progress to play in the Play-Offs at the Wembley Arena on Thursday May 19. The 2010 event saw reigning champion James Wade defeated in an historic final by Phil Taylor, who became the first player in history to hit two nine-dart finishes in the same match as he claimed a fifth Premier League Darts title. “Premier League Darts is one of British sport’s biggest success stories since we introduced the tournament in 2005 and this year’s event saw the event move to a new level” PDC Chairman Barry Hearn “Not only did we pack arenas around the UK for three months but the players produced an incredible standard of darts – most notably with Raymond van Barneveld’s nine-dart finish in Aberdeen which was followed by the incredible final which featured two nine-darters from Phil Taylor. “We are already looking forward to seeing darts’ most exciting players in the 2011 Premier League Darts and I’m sure our fans across the United Kingdom feel the same way.” Tickets for the 888.com Premier League Darts at the Motorpoint Arena are priced £30 for table seats and £20 for tiered seating (subject to booking fee). There will be a maximum of six table seats per customer with a family enclosure available. Tickets can be booked in person at the Arena box office, through the ticket hotline on 0114 256 56 56 or online at www. motorpointarena.co.uk.

Weekly Psychic Article by Psychic Glynis

Psychic Pets Have you ever wondered how intuitive your pet is? In this article I will tell you what signs to look for but I will also share with you some heartwarming stories. The Psychic Signs Have you ever seen your pet starring at an empty space in your home? When your cat or dog wags it’s tail it may have seen a spirit person or even a spirit pet. Your dog or cat will get excited about a dead relative or animal coming to visit in the same way that he/she did when that person or animal was alive. This is because your psychic pet is not able to tell the difference! Friends will get a wagging tail or a meow whereas a stranger will get a hiss or a growl. My dog Mollie does this. She will either stare and wag her tail or she will growl and whimper. Dogs and cats pick up many sounds which are outside the range of human hearing so they are more intuitive anyway. Note the Signs If you believe that your pet is psychic it is a good idea to note the time, date and place of any strange behaviour. Look for patterns of behaviour as deceased relatives usually return on special days, for example, birthdays and anniversaries. In a spiritual magazine that I have written for in the past there is a page dedicated to a psychic horse. The horse is an 18 year old Appaloosa called Texas. He has spirit guides that answer peoples’ questions. Texas animal communicator Holly says his information is very accurate. A dog called Max loved listening to the radio and whenever the song ‘Red Red Wine’ by UB40 came on Max would howl. This was Max’s way of bonding with his owner!! Our Paddy howls to the ‘Antiques Road Show’ and to Tony Stockwell’s ‘Angels Awakening’ but I’m not sure what the explanation is for that. I must say that if you do not have animals you are missing out on something wonderful. Psychic Warnings History is littered with stories about psychic animals. In World War II there were reports of cats becoming visually alarmed and agitated minutes before an air raid siren sounded. They were trying to warn their owners of an enemy attack.

Psychic Pets Communicating with Humans During my experience as a Clairvoyant I have come across four occasions when this has occurred. Three involving dogs and the other a cat. One of the dogs was a little border terrier called Lucy. She was my friend Jean’s dog and got lost after chasing a rabbit. Lucy was chipped and Jean, Brian and Jon adored her. They were distraught. We searched with the pendulum night after night and Jean put posters up but no news. I had psychic readings the next day so I did some meditation and Jean’s Uncle Percy came through with Lucy in his arms, she`d had a fit and passed over. An old couple had picked her up and kept her but they did not know that Lucy had fits and needed medication. The couple had buried her in their garden. We knew which area Lucy was in but we never found her alive. At least we know that she is now safe and well in heaven with Uncle Percy. One of the other dogs was found in an animal sanctuary, the cat was found on a farm and another Staffordshire bull terrier had been taken away by some boys but was returned to her mistress. I am on the missing animals’ register so they call upon me to help find lost pets.

SUITS YOU SIR

Two years ago whilst looking for a suit for a wedding Michael was ridiculed by the shop assistant about his then size, she suggested that he went to a local outdoor camping shop as they would have something to fit him. Totally humiliated and desperate Michael left the well-known store. How different 12 months on someone can feel. Having lost a significant amount of weigh Michael was once again shopping for a suit this time for his own wedding. Bravely he re-entered the shop what a difference this time the jacket was way too big and a smaller size was ordered. This is the point in which Michael knew he was now a different much happier and healthier man. His inspirational transformation has seen him go from feeling pretty useless person to one who has now got his confidence back and reignited his life again. “I hadn’t realised how much the excess weight had not only affected my physical health but more over my mental.” Michael recalls his incident in which it lead him to join Slimming World and make the changes. “ My soon to be wife and I had gone for a walk, a breath of fresh air they had only walked a few metres when he thought he was going to die his heart was pounding and really felt unwell. Having managed to reach home Mel now his wife tactfully said she was going

to go to a group to lose some weight for their pending wedding, Michael agreed but he really didn’t feel comfortable about entering walking into a room full of potentially all women. “I don’t know what I was worried about. From the minute I stepped through the door everyone was so friendly and made me feel so welcome. The support from within the group was fabulous I really couldn’t have done it without them, they were my hardest steps to make but without the small steps I wouldn’t be on this fabulous journey now.” Local Manager Alison Gibson explained “I think staying to group for Image Therapy has really kept Michael going, the support and encouragement from his fellow members really did help him relax and enjoy the group experience within a safe and friendly atmosphere”. Michael says: “I love the freedom and flexibility I get from Slimming World’s Extra Easy eating plan. At first I was amazed at how much I could eat, I can pile my plate high with pasta, rice, potatoes, lean meat, fish and eggs and still lose weight successfully. And best of all I can still enjoy all my favourite meals, such as spaghetti bolognaise, honey glazed pork or even a Sunday roast, my favourite is Chicken stuffed with Cheese and wrapped in Bacon., it’s great. The best thing about Slimming World is I can still socialise and enjoy meals out with my family I know I’m still in control because I use my ‘syn’ allowance on what I like, with Slimming World it always your choice.” Michael added “Slimming World is about you being

in control rather than your weight controlling you , the freedom and choice power is great , you never go hungry or feel deprived , and with Slimming World everything is confidential and you never feel humiliated and best of all ,you set your own target weight”. Mel added “With three teenagers in the house we needed to set them a good example too, we all eat the same as the meals at Slimming World are wonderful for all the family to eat, life couldn’t be simpler, easier or healthier in our home now. We are all very supportive towards each other it’s wonderful that we are going to have a brilliant healthy future together” Michael continued” Reducing my weight has led me to a new lease of life, I now have more energy to exercise and I enjoy it, it’s become a part of my weekly lifestyle now. My self-esteem is higher, I can now buy clothes in a wider variety of shops and I don’t get caught in the turnstiles at football matches anymore” With Michaels new found confidence he has decided to become a Slimming World Consultant and is relaunching the Birley group at The Fairways, He will be taking over the Birley group at: The Fairways Inn (Function Room – side entrance) Birley Lane 7.00pm for more details call Michael on 07920763168.

Sheffield 50+ - The Voice of Older People Heard Nationally Handy Help in the Home for Sheffield’s Elderly Stayput

A new scheme has been launched to help Sheffield’s elderly stay in their own homes. The free handy person service provided by Sheffield Stay Put Home Improvement Agency – part of Yorkshire Housing and funded by Sheffield City Council will carry out small repairs and minor adaptations in the homes of the elderly and vulnerable adults cross the city. The service aims to enable Sheffield residents who are aged 65 and over, or under 65 but have a disability or life long limiting illness, maintain their independence and stay living in their own home safely. It is hoped that the service will help to reduce the amount of hospital admissions from trips or falls around the home and it will also help those being discharged from hospital be able to return home knowing that changes have been made to meet their needs. Chris Wade, Head of Foundation at Yorkshire Housing said: “The cost of installing a grab rail is a few pounds and when you compare this

to the many thousands that a hip replacement costs including the weeks spent in pain and away from home it makes sense to act early and have this kind of service freely available.” Evidence suggests that older people are more likely to fall in their own homes than those under 65. In 2010 the average NHS cost of admission following a fall is £1,227. The average cost of a fall resulting in hospitalisation is around £10,000. Mervyn Jones, Chief Executive at Yorkshire Housing, said: “The service will be able to help with a variety of jobs around the home such as installing grab rails and hand rails, securing loose carpets, putting up shelves and repairing uneven steps and paving slabs “For many people this service could provide the difference between independent living and moving into residential care”. The service will be free of charge to qualifying applicants. All homeowners will have to pay for is the materials which are provided at trade prices to keep costs low. For more information and enquiries please contact Sheffield Stay Put on 0114 256 4270 (Lines are open between 09:00am and 04:30pm Monday to Friday) or e-mail: sheffieldstayput@ yorkshirehousing.co.uk

Are You Ready for Com.unity – a new community Digital Switchover? centre The brand new community building, com. unity, designed almost entirely by teenagers, in collaboration with partners including the Integrated Youth Support Service (IYSS), was unveiled at a special celebration party on 26 March. Pupils from Westfield Sports College were instrumental in transforming a tired old pub into a much needed youth and community centre. The Golden Keys, on the Westfield Estate, was a major concern for South Yorkshire Police, Sheffield City Council and local residents after it became a notorious haven for drug-related issues. Since its closure, through external funding, the Council has worked alongside the college to breathe new life into the building and turn it into a state-of-the-art youth centre and community facility. It is hoped com.unity will provide a muchneeded catalyst for change in the area, bringing together everyone from the community to enjoy and benefit from what it offers.

The Lord Mayor, Cllr Alan Law, and Clinton Woods opening the new centre

Patrick Meleady, from Sheffield City Council, said: “This is a world class community resource centre and I for one am very proud of the local children and young people because of their hard work and how they have helped turn this project into a reality.

In August and September this year analogue television broadcasts will be switched off across the Yorkshire TV region and replaced with digital (Freeview) signals. Virtually every household will then be able to receive extra TV channels, digital radio and interactive services free through an aerial. If you currently receive just the five standard TV channels – or only some of them – on any of your sets, you’ll need to think about converting these to digital. To help you prepare for switchover, here are three top tips: Check your options for going digital. There are a number of ways to get digital television (such as via an aerial, satellite or cable) and both subscription and non-subscription services are available. The postcode checker on the Digital UK website at www.digitaluk.co.uk can tell when you switch and the services available where you live. Alternatively, call the Digital UK advice line on 08456 50 50 50. Every household will also be sent detailed information about switchover in the year leading up to their local transmitter switching to digital. You could also contact your local Independent Electrical Retailer for help and advice. Look for the ‘digital tick’. This is the special logo that identifies television products and services that are designed to continue working through switchover. Remember, you don’t need to buy a new television for switchover as almost any set can be converted using a digital box, available from around £25. The Switchover Help Scheme There’s extra help for older and disabled viewers from the Switchover Help Scheme. People aged 75 or over, living in a care home for six months or more, registered blind or partially sighted, or on certain disability benefits will receive an offer of equipment to convert one TV set to digital, help with its installation and follow-up support. There is a one-off fee of £40 but the service is free for the poorest eligible households. For more on this call free on 0800 408 7654 or visit www. helpscheme.co.uk

The Scenic Settle & Carlisle Line by Steam Train, Wednesday 1st June Join us on board “The Settle & Carlisle Flyer” to experience the splendour of a Steam hauled journey over the world famous picturesque Settle & Carlisle line. We start the journey diesel hauled from Worcester Shrub Hill, winding our way cross country through the Midlands skirting the conurbation of Leeds and up into the Aire Valley, where delightful scenery of the 19th Century Mills can be seen, then heading northwards to Hellifield in North Yorkshire where our Steam Locomotive of the day awaits our arrival. From Hellifield sit back and relax as we head steam hauled toward Settle Junction. We then start the “long drag”, a 14 mile climb from Settle Junction, to the majestic viaduct at Ribblehead. Admire the views of Yorkshire’s famous three peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough and Penyghent whilst we glide across Ribblehead’s elegant 24 arches. As we plunge into the damp darkness of Blea Moor tunnel, 500ft below the moor above, spare a thought for the navvies who constructed it with nothing but picks, shovels and dynamite. As we emerge into Dent Dales, savour that breathtaking panorama of Blea Moor and green pasture. Garsdale flashes by, our locomotive is working hard now as we storm up to the summit of the line at Ais Gill, 1169ft above sea level. Can you spot the ruin of Pendragon Castle?. Wild Boar Fell frowns at us as we race downhill to the delightful town of Appleby. On leaving Appleby, we enter into the North’s best kept secret - the Eden Valley. Absorb the rich lushness of this little known oasis. Watch out for the deer and game birds. Marvel at the flora and fauna in the Eden Gorge and all too soon we shall have arrived at that great border city of Carlisle. We stop here for approximately 2 hours enough time for a leg stretch before our journey home.

JOIN THE SHEFFIELD BIG CHOIR AND HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SING IN AMSTERDAM Singing is not only popular in the UK but also in Holland. Two conductors in Holland, Etty van der Mei and Nan van Groeningen are conductors of Eleven Big Choirs over there. Every year they organise many concerts and projects and make many trips all over the world. Many Brassbands and Brass ensembles from Yorkshire have visited Holland to work with them. Now they would like to start with a big choir in the Sheffield region! Etty and Nan have spoken with Neil Taylor, Director of Music at Sheffield Cathedral and he is very enthusiastic to work with his Dutch friends to launch the SHEFFIELD BIG CHOIR. The music will be drawn from the popular choral and opera repertoire. This project will have 5 rehearsals in Sheffield. The rehearsal dates are 26th of May, 9th and 30th of June, 22nd of

“One of our hardest working bands, 70’s Express are working extensively for Park Resorts, Butlins & Haven throughout 2011.

September and 6th of October. The choir is for all singers over 18. For the 5 rehearsals, the concert in Sheffield , the music and CD the singers pay £40. During the first rehearsal everybody will receive the music and a CD containing all the vocal parts. Etty, Nan and Neil will conduct the rehearsals. After the 5 rehearsals the choir will be ready for the concerts. On Friday 11 of November they will give the concert in Sheffield. The first concert will be in The Royal Concertgebouw in Holland, one of the biggest and best concert halls in the world. During this special concert in Amsterdam you will sing with several Dutch choirs, about 1000 singers in total! The City of Sheffield Brass Ensemble will also be there conducted by Derek Renshaw From Scotland we have the tenor soloist Tony Henry.

MUSIC HALL HERITAGE CLUBHISTORIANS.CO.UK by Ruth Cherrington

The more I read about music halls, their history and the wonderful personalities that strutted on their stages, the more links I see with club entertainment. They share a similar heritage and in many ways club entertainment keeps alive some of the great music hall traditions. Music halls once played a hugely important role in working class districts and became popular as clubs were being established around the country in the latter half of the 19th century. The entrance fee was kept as low as possible to achieve maximum audience numbers so the ‘halls’ touched even the poorest people. Even those that hardly ever set foot in one would likely know the popular songs of the day, such as ‘Champagne Charlie’, by George Leybourne. Like clubs, they partly grew out of pubs and their entertainment with singing saloons becoming popular in the mid-19th century. Some publicans opened rooms where there was singing and supper, for a small fee. Entrepreneurs saw the possibilities in commercial entertainment terms with purpose- built music hall appearing, a few of which remain today such as Wiltons in the East End of London. Some splendid theatres are well known such as the London Palladium but many have been long lost, through fire, bombs or bulldozers. Women could go along but the audiences were more likely to be male dominated. There were many famous female performers such as Marie Lloyd. The variety aspect was strong; comedians, singers, magicians, puppeteers, acrobats, dancers and many novelty acts could be seen, with plenty of ‘turns’ each performance and there could be several of these a day. The typical music hall format was largely adopted by clubs when they began to put on concerts, with their own ‘turns’ and variety. Some music hall performers worked the early clubs as well, transferring their acts from one venue to another. It was a hard and often short life, running from place to place and fitting in as many performances as possible. Very young children were put on stage if they any talent and went on to be adult successes. There would be a master of ceremonies, the chairman, introducing the acts and calling for order- just as in clubs. Audiences could get quite rowdy and if they didn’t like the act, they would boo them off the stage, maybe helped along with some rotten fruit. Club audiences were also quite critical of the ‘turns’ and let them know in no uncertain terms if they weren’t up to scratch. There was much interaction between performers and audiences who might be drinking, smoking, eating meat pies or mussels as the acts were performing. The music hall circuit was partly replaced by the club circuit- and it was a school of hard knocks for performers.

LOCKED OUT MAGIC AM by Trevor Thomas

It’s one of those dreaded moments of your life, and that instant awful feeling of horror you get when you realize! Have you ever forgotten your keys and watched as your front door snaps shut and locks itself behind you? I remember driving all over the place when I first passed my test and admittedly I did get into the habit of being able to push the button down in the door and then lifting the handle as I closed it. It was a handy way of locking the car without using a key until one day when I got back after shopping. Yes you can guess what happened. I was greeted with the sight of my bunch of keys dangling from the ignition and had to drag my Dad out armed with the spare set. Anais of Dronfield called me last week to tell us about having to crawl through an open window to her house on her wedding day, and while still in her wedding dress as well. Plus, Pam of Barnsley was shopping a bit too late at an indoor market and told us how she was locked in, only to be rescued by the late night cleaners! Dean of Shire Green was also locked in, but actually inside a tiny French toilet cubicle in his case. Although without a coin, he attempted to nip in and use the auto loo after his wife had used it. He managed to get in and take a turn before the door closed again. He wasn’t only trapped inside, but subjected to the jet sprayers that came on to clean the thing. Although a little drenched the door eventually opened for him. Talk to you tomorrow morning for more fun and games. Trevor

Hello there readers! I was invited back to Sheffield Trades and Labour Club on Friday Night for this year’s “Stars in your eyes” competition - and what a great night this was. It ranged from young singers to (let’s say!) the older generation but every one that took to the stage did a very good job. The evening was hosted by a lovely lady called Sue, with Paul doing the sound for all the acts. There was a decent crowd, and everybody was having fun. Graham, one of the Committee members, told me of a new idea. They are putting on an entertainer on Wednesday 13th April in the afternoon for our older folks who are perhaps nervous about coming out at night. This is a lovely idea. I will certainly try and call in and see how it goes - who knows? This could be a new thing for our clubs to think about. This is a lovely club

THE WANTED

You may have seen them all over the music channels…you may have seen them at last year’s Tramlines…you may have seen them on billboards across the country…this Sunday is your chance to see them live on stage, girls…The Wanted are coming to Sheffield! Set to bring energy and excitement to the City Hall, the five-piece are all over the charts at the moment. With four top ten hits and a self-titled album peaking at number four in October 2010; it would be hard not to already know some prior knowledge about The Wanted. Their debut single, All Time Low shot to the top of the charts in summer 2010, staying in the top 40 for eleven weeks. Their second single, Heart Vacancy, reached number two in the UK Charts and eighteen in the Irish Charts, another massive hit for the band who have been living and working with each other for just over a year. In March, they were asked to perform the official Comic Relief single, ‘Gold Forever,’ the first single from their second album set to be released in 2011. This reached number three on the Singles chart, with the music video seeing them don the trade mark red nose, all in the name of charity.

THESE FRIENDS OF MINE

Alas, festival fever is just round the corner (and about time it is too) so to kick things off, Manchester is set to host their very own ‘Friends of Mine Festival’ from 20th – 22nd May…expect big from this debut event which, although brave to say, may even beat Sheffield’s Tramlines. Now that is brave to say! Held at the 10,000 capacity Capesthorne Hall, the line-up boasts some of the countries most celebrated acts, from modern day chart toppers to potential up-and-comers, headliners include The Cribs, The Buzzcocks, Bad Lieutenant, Cheshire’s The Charlatans and Badly Drawn Boy to name just a few. Joining these, international bands Black Lips, a garage-punk five piece from Georgia, USA along with Young Knives and American singer-song writer

Forming through mass auditions, The Wanted consists of Max, Tom, Nathan, Jay and Siva who each have very different music backgrounds. Max, former member of boy band Avenue, saw some success with a top fifty single in the UK charts in 2006, which although never matching the level of The Wanted, did give him a taste for the music industry. Tom, aged 22, is a keen guitarist and previously auditioned for X Factor. Nathan and Jay both attended performing arts schools, with seventeen year old Nathan representing England in the 2004 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Impressively, he even came third! Recruited into the band for his love for music and good looks, Siva aged 22 is signed to model agency Storm and has appeared in various television advertisements. With anthemic tracks and energetic stage presences, their UK tour has already seen the boys play ten shows across the country, with Sheffield being their penultimate gig. Tickets are still available for purchase, priced at £24.51 with hospitality tickets starting from £74.00 each. Visit the City Hall website www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk for all ticket info and enquiries. Doors 18.30 Artist: The Wanted Venue: Sheffield City Hall Date: 10/04/11 John Maus. Also added to the ever increasing bill, Mr Scruff, The Whip, Twisted Wheel, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, Detroit Social Club who have just finished a headline UK tour and The Heartbreaks. However, don’t be mistaken in thinking Friends of Mine festival is solely about music…or ran just when the sun’s out. No no, ‘The House Party’ a custom-made marquee will be in place to harbour a variety of kick-ass DJ’s; Tim Burgess, Smith’s God Mike Joyce and Massive Attack collaborator Horace Andy are all on the line-up to provide the best in audible entertainment. For any fans of a spot of culture, the festival also plays host to a stand-up comedy and spoken words tent, headlined by Manchester’s John Cooper Clarke aswell as featured sets from Steve Shanyaski, Barbaba Nice and Nick Fraser. Aiding this, the festivals Jazz Stage will also see the Northern Quarter Jazz Institution with over twelve hours of specially created music brought to you by hidden Orchestra, Renegade Brass Band aswell as Hackney Colliery Band. And if you’re into flicks on the big screen, the cinema tent will be showing hours of cult classics and Manchester-centric movies including a very special screening of Mr Nice, introduced by no other than Howard Marks himself! Forget about binging on junk food at Friends Of Mine, the festival curators have gone to such lengths to bring together the ‘Festaurant,’ a quirky festival culinary experience from some of the most loved restaurants, cafes and eateries in Manchester all ready to cater to the masses. In association with Manchester Food and Drink Festival, be prepared to get wined and dined FOM style; and they’re not doing things by halves! Tickets are priced at £89.50 which includes a full event camping spot. VIP tickets are available if you’re looking for added luxury. For full info, visit www.fomfest.com.

AINTREE & THE NATIONAL HORSE RACING by Timelord

This week I am concentrating mainly on the Aintree 3 day Festival starting on Thursday. I will also have a quick look at the Scoop 6 races for Saturday. It’s time for the annual thud and blunder spectacular as Aintree puts on the greatest equine steeplechase show on earth – the one and only Grand National. In recent years this has been a very competitive event and this year looks like following suit. Ever since the handicapping approach was adjusted about 10 years ago one cannot rule out any of the runners – even those carrying above 11 stone seem to have a decent chance these days. You need a thorough staying chaser that can run on at the end of this gruelling four and a half miles, and one that has the class and determination to win. As always in this event however you will need a lot of luck just for your chosen steed to get round, and even more for it to win. I have spent quite some time looking at the big race and have concluded that Tidal Bay has as good a chance as any of winning. This “enigmatic” character always seems to run well at this venue and has three track wins in his CV, as well as two seconds a fourth and a fifth. Perhaps he just likes the Liverpool air! This season he has been seen staying on over shorter distances at Wetherby, Haydock and Cheltenham and ran well at the latter venue in the Gold Cup, where he finished sixth. I reckon that this extra distance could just bring out the best in him and given some luck in running he has to have a very good each way chance. He is currently a best priced 33/1 chance but he is no back number and if he is to win the National this has to his year. Last year’s winner Don’t Push It bids to give AP McCoy a follow-up win but looks to have more to do this year. He hasn’t jumped a fence in public this time round, having been campaigned exclusively over hurdles, but has put up some decent performances over timber and cannot be ruled out. Others that completed last year and are having another shot this time are: State of Play (3rd); Big Fella Thanks (4th); Hello Bud (5th); Character Building (7th); Comply or Die (12th); and Piraya (13th). I always have to have a few running for me in this race as luck in running plays such a big part and if your horse falls, or gets brought down early on, then having no other runner to watch spoils the spectacle. My handful against the field (with current best prices) therefore is: Tidal Bay (33/1); Character Building (33/1); State of Play (25/1); Skippers Brig (40/1); and Killyglen (66/1) – to finish in that order. Whatever you choose do not forget to seek out the best deal about the number of places that your bookie will pay out on. These days five places is a fairly commonplace offer – some will even pay out on the first six to get home - so don’t be afraid to ask for those terms from your local turf accountant. Just remember that this is a 40 runner handicap, and a tightly knit one at that. It is not uncommon in this race for anything up to half of the field to fail to complete the course, so the stakes on those 20 or so runners are straight in his sky rocket!! Even if they were all to complete, and if your bookie were to be paying out on the first five, it would still leave 35 runners whose win and place stakes he would keep. Do not be surprised if the Aintree meeting throws up quite a few surprises (from the Cheltenham form) over the three days. This is a very different track and test and suits sharp, nippy types on the Mildmay course over which most of the races are run. Thursday: Big Buck’s must have a very good chance of winning the opening Grade 1 Liverpool Hurdle if he turns up, but Nicky Henderson’s Carole’s Legacy might just give him a run for the money. Another with a live each way chance at decent odds is Donald McCain’s Son of Flicka. I also like the chance of Carlito Brigante who ran well at Cheltenham to land the Coral Cup by 6 lengths, finishing full of running and to my mind looking every inch a stayer who would improve over further. All in all therefore, while Big Buck’s has a favourite’s winning chance my suggestion is a small each way dabble on one of the others named here who all appear to have chances of sorts and are likely to start at more reasonable odds. In the Grade 1 Juvenile Hurdle at 2.30 Zarkandar, who won the Triumph Hurdle so well at Cheltenham, is likely to go off as favourite. However I reckon that Nicky Henderson’s Grandouet, third in the Triumph Hurdle, can gain his revenge on this very different track which I think will suit him much better than Cheltenham. The Totesport Bowl Chase at 3.05 should fall to

Denman who has been a model of consistency this year at the top level. In The Foxhunters Chase at 3.40 the shortlist comprises: My Way De Solzen; Mister Apples; Offshore Account; Turko; Heron’s Well; Blu Teen; Ice Tea; Good Company; and Fort View. In a tight competitive race my narrow preference is for the latter but this is another race where you need a lot of luck in running and a decent pilot as the race is for amateur jockeys. At 4.15 Oiseau de Nuit can follow up his Cheltenham Grand Annual win by landing this Grade 3 handicap chase. If Peak Raider were to get in the race he would merit my chief danger but I would also be worried about the chances of Elite Land and Shirley Casper if they got a run. In the Grade 2 Manifesto Novices’ Chase at 4.50 Mr Cracker, a recent winner in Ireland, looks to hold a sound chance. Shirley Casper is the chief danger and can chase him home with Sam Adams filling third spot. In the last race on the opening day Brian Ellison’s Bothy looks to have a good chance following his second to Carlito Brigante in the Coral Cup. Notus De La Tour could prove to be his most dangerous opponent. Friday: In the opener I reckon that there could be an upset here. I particularly like the chances of Alan King’s Iolith, Noel Meade’s Perfect Smile, Lucy Wadham’s Alarazi and Donald McCain’s Desert Cry with narrow preference for the former. In the 2.30 Mildmay Novices’ Chase Wishfull Thinking, who ran a gallant second to Noble Prince in the Jewson at Cheltenham, can gain some compensation. Golan Way might be his sternest opponent although The Minack cannot be discounted either. In the Grade 1 Melling Chase at 3.05 I like the chance of Deep Purple, who is a sporting selection to beat some better regarded rivals and should represent decent value. The Topham Chase at 3.40 can go to Charlie Mann’s Fine Parchment, who has been running well all season, has won for the column before, and should be able to see off this lot. The Grade 1 Sefton Novices’ Hurdle at 4.15 can go to Tim Vaughan’s Saint Are at a big price, from his stable-mate Our Island (ran quite well at Cheltenham where the course didn’t suit). The best of the rest look to be Golden Chieftain, Russian Song, Handy Andy, Basford Bob and Maringo Bay. Souffleur, who finished second to Big Buck’s in the Liverpool Hurdle here last year (less than three lengths behind Big Buck’s), has a decent chance in the 4.50 handicap hurdle, as this course is better suited to his style of running than Cheltenham, where he finished a well beaten 11th behind Big Buck’s in the World Hurdle. Donald McCain’s Son of Flicka and Oliver Mc Kiernan’s Whodoyouthink look to be his main opponents although I would be very interested in Stow if he were to get a run. The concluding race is the Mares’ bumper. This year I think that the prize may well go back to Ireland with Willie Mullins’ Ceol Rua. Howard Johnson’s Zhakiera Spirit looks to have the best chance of preventing that from happening. Saturday: The opening race can go to John Quinn’s Recession Proof on this more suitable track than Cheltenham. He has to turn round that form with Spirit Son and Cue Card but might just be capable of doing so. Of the others Maringo Bay and Andhaar hold decent chances. If he has got over his exertions behind Captain Chris in the Arkle the 2.15 Maghull Novices’ Chase can go to Finian’s Rainbow though there is not much in it between him and Gilbarry, Pepe Simo and Dan Breen. If he doesn’t take his chance the vote goes to Pepe Simo. The 2.50 Grade 1 Aintree Hurdle can go to Willie Mullins’ Thousand Stars at a decent price. Get Me Out Of Here should also run well and Celestial Halo can also make the frame. If Skippers Brig fails to get a run in the National he can gain compensation in the 3.25 handicap chase. Chief opposition looks to come from Faasel, Mr Cracker, Wogan and Ballyvesey while Bensalem ran also ran well last time when winning at Cheltenham and isn’t out of this. For the 5.00 I like the chance of recent Irish scorer Jack Cool. Total Excitement and Arctic Wings look best of the rest. The concluding Grade 2 Champion bumper often goes to a decent horse. This year I think that the prize may well go to Rebecca Curtis’s Peckhamecho whose form behind Ericht at Newbury looks the best on offer here. Of the others Fergall, Allure of Allusion and Montbazon all look to have sound chances.

Angler’s Corner by Clint Walker

Over the course of the last twelve months, I’ve written about various fisheries, baits, tackle and individual captures of great fish. I want to take a look at a couple of things which I mentioned in previous Angler’s Corner which have been reviewed elsewhere recently. The first of these items is the innovative new hook pattern called Easy-2-Hook manufactured by Mustad on behalf of Global Tackle. You may have already seen these hooks, they were showcased at last year’s Tackle & Gun trade show by Global MD Paul Smith, but if not, they feature in this month’s Improve Your Coarse Fishing magazine. Unlike any other pattern, the Easy-2-Hook feature no spade or eye to tie the mainline to, just a protrusion on the back of the shank to wrap the line around before it exits through the spiral aperture at the top. Sounds unusual, and they certainly look it, but there may be some advantages. Speed; many match anglers need to be able to break down and change tackle under pressure and at speed to keep up with the leaders and this pattern definitely offers the potential for extremely (under 5 seconds) quick changes of hook. No need to tie the line in any way, just select the new hook, secure the line and fish on! How about line integrity? Any recognised knot may degrade line strength by up to 30%; with Easy-2-Hook, only 2-3% of the line strength is lost as the mono isn’t pinched or damaged. Change of bait size? Simply unwrap the hook and adjust the length of the hair to give perfect presentation within seconds! There are definite advantages to this new design and all it will take is for a ‘celebrity’ (that word again!) angler to use them successfully before the angling world sits up and takes

notice, so why not beat the rush? Find out more at www. easy2hook.co.uk Also set to do well again in the new season are Marukyu Baits. This Japanese company is the world’s biggest bait producer and looks set to continue to compete amongst established players in the UK market. UK Development Director Roy Marlow helps head up the cast of matchmen taking waters apart with the wide variety of baits on offer. Roy told me; “I hear people say that Marukyu baits only work on certain waters, well I do not know of any where it doesn’t and new squad member Steve Shaw from Wales has been taking waters apart this last few weeks with Marukyu baits. The first time he used the new EFG 130 in the Port Talbert docks he won his section with 13 skimmers in a section where there were 7 blanks, doesn’t that tell you something?” Scientifically designed to trigger fish feeding senses, Marukyu have a huge team of experts, all working in conjunction with agencies such as CEFAS and others to process products which are engineered to work together to give the angler the best chance of catching fish. The portfolio of available baits is huge; groundbaits, boilies, pellets and pastes cover every imaginable situation, work brilliantly in cold water, and are will enhance any other mix.

The Rovers made one change to their starting line-up from the QPR game, Mustapha Dumbuya in for Sam Hird, who drops to the bench. The City made two changes, Jamie McAllister coming back from injury and replacing the injured Steven Caulker and Lee Johnson in for Kalife Cisse. The Rovers defended the Wedlock Stand end, where their fans were housed, in the first half. Article continues Advertisement In the first minute the Rovers were awarded a free kick in the Bristol half that led to Stock and Gillett combining to put the latter in on goal but his shot wasstraight at James who saved. Then a couple of minutes later Bristol’s first attack was repulsed but came out of the Rovers defence to Maynard, sixteen yards out but Woods went down to his left to push the ball away. The game settled down over the next ten minutes with both sides showing attacking tendencies. A cross from the Bristol left by McAllister to the far post was met by Pitman with a header that Woods saved comfortably. The Rovers whilst having as much of the play as their hosts hadn’t worked James. A good build-up by the Rovers in the 20th minute that promised much eventually came to nothing. Then in the 26th minute the home team won the first corner of the game that was cleared and continuing to attack they forced another corner. This one set the Rovers on the attack. Reaching the edge of the penalty area Stock threaded the ball through for Moussa to have a crack at goal but James saved with his legs. The Rovers then gained their first corner but nothing came from it. The game continued to fluctuate back and forth. In the 35th minute Gillett and Moussa combined on the Rovers left, with Gillett getting in a shot that was beaten out for a corner. The Rovers were playing some terrific passing football that was stretching the Bristol defence but the scoreline stayed at zero. In the 43rd minute, Maynard, for the home team, came in from the left but Woods blocked his shot which bounced out to Johnson, 15 yards out but Martis got his body in the way and the ball was cleared to set the Rovers on the attack but it fizzled out . Minutes later a corner for the home team went over everybody and out for a goalkick at the other side. Maynard then tried his luck from 35 yards, more in hope than expectation but he was well wide. An interesting first half was brought to a close after three minutesof added time. Interesting

because both sides were attack minded and causing the defences problems. The second half began in the same vein as the end of the first half but it was six minutes before either side had a sight of goal. Then, within a minute both sides had a chance. Firstly the home team had a free kick on the halfway line on their left. This was swung over to the far post where Elliott got in a header but put it over the bar. Straight from the goal kick Moussa was put in on the left but as James came out he put his shot wide of the keeper and the far post. On the hour Maynard showed some nifty footwork to get past a couple of defenders before shooting over the bar from 20 yards. Then Elliott headed wide from a McAllister cross. In the 66th minute Moussa again had the goal in his sights but James was equal to the task and saved. A corner to the Rovers was headed out of defence to Mills 25yards out but he put high and wide with his effort. Then a good run down the home right by Spence followed by a cracking shot was beaten out by Woods and Elliott put over the bar. Woods was again in action in the 68th minute when Adomah went clear on the right. Cutting in he hit a thunderbolt of a shot that Woods saved brilliantly. Five minutes later and a Rovers corner was cleasred and set up a Bristol attack that sent Maynard clear though on goal but a brilliant tackle from Mills a yard outside the penalty area saved the day. However, in the 75th minute, MAYNARD swept in a low cross from Spence on the right that gave Woods no chance. The Rovers tried to hit back and won a corner which was eventually cleared. However, the home team had won the day and meant to keep it by keeping the Rovers practically pinned in their own half over the closing minutes.

TIGERS WIN HARD FOUGHT HOME CAMPAIGN OPENER SPEEDWAY Sheffield Tigers

IN A WEEK MATCH REPORT www.themillers.co.uk

The Millers slipped to a second home defeat in a week after a late Morecambe goal gave the visitors a narrow 1-0 victory. Rotherham came closest in the first minute, when Johnny Mullins had a header cleared off the line. After an even game, the visitors struck the hammer blow on 82 minutes through an excellent Jimmy Spencer finish. Andy Liddell made two changes to the side that was beaten by Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night. Ian Thomas-Moore picked up an injury in training and was replaced by Adam Le Fondre, whilst the fitagain Nick Fenton came in for Luke Ashworth who dropped to the bench. The Millers started brightly and Nicky Law in particular showed good anticipation to block an attempted clearance before his dangerous cross was tuned behind. Tom Newey curled in the resulting corner which threatened to dip under the bar, but Barry Roche turned it behind. Still the Millers pressed and the second corner was headed across goal by Ryan Taylor but Mullins header from eight yards was kicked off the line by Niall Cowperthwaite, with Taylor then smashing the rebound straight at Coweperthwaite again who found himself in the right place at the right time. Morecambe’s first chance came on 11 minutes when a hopeful long punt forward by Will Haining landed perfectly for Phil Jevons in the area, but from a tight angle his shot was saved by the legs of Andy Warrington. On 18 minutes Warrington was called into action again when Jevons flicked a pass in behind the Millers defence for Spencer to smash a first time shot, which Warrington palmed behind. Morecambe then competed a hat-trick of missed chances when a right wing cross by Spencer found Garry Hunter all alone in the area eight yards out, but he planted his header into the ground and over when completely unmarked. The Millers appeared to lose their way after a bright start but Marcus Marshall looked to reinvigorate their attacking play with some good work down the left. First he got to the byline before his low cross was cleared, and on 38 minutes he cut in from the left again before shooting over from 20 yards out. On 39 minutes the Millers created another opening and again Marshall was involved. Law played a pass down the right for Marshall who crossed to the edge of the box where Mark Bradley’s scuffed effort just eluded the lurking Le Fondre. Moments later Law picked up possession just outside the area before driving a fierce shot straight at Roche. The Millers finished the half strongly, with Marshall picking the ball up from Warrington, carrying it the length of the pitch and firing just wide from 20 yards. The Millers were unable to start the second half as brightly as they had the first, with the first chance of the second period falling to the visitors on 56 minutes. Morecambe cleared a Rotherham corner and surged forward on the counter attack, and only a last gasp Mullins intervention prevented the Millers falling behind. Omar Daley was introduced by Liddell just before the hour mark, and his wing play provided the Millers with their first notable chance of the second half. He carried the ball down the right flank and

SHEFFIELD: Hugh Skidmore 11, Shane Parker 9+2, Josh Auty 9, Emiliano Sanchez 8, Ricky Ashworth 6, Simon Lambert 5, Ashley Birks 3+1.

BERWICK: Josef Franc 11+2, Kozza Smith 11, Lee Complin 7+1, Charlie Gjedde 7, Hynek Stichauer 3+1, Tamas Sike 2, Jade Mudgway 0.

SHEFFIELD Tigers opened their home Premier League campaign with a hard fought 51-41 win over Berwick at Owlerton on Thursday. It was a solid all-round effort from Eric Boocock’s side who have now gained four points from their first two league outings. Aussie ace Hugh Skidmore was top scorer for Sheffield with 11 and there was a welcome return from injury for Emiliano Sanchez who notched 8. Sheffield made a blistering start but Berwick, who had former Sheffield man Josef Franc at the top of their scorecharts, kept hanging on and it was only in the latter stages when the home side made sure of maximum points.

WE RAN MORECAMBE INFLICT BRISTOL CLOSE SECOND HOME DEFEAT GAFFERS VERDICT www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O’Driscoll was a man content with his side’s performance on Saturday afternoon, despite his side suffering a bitter narrow defeat at the hands of Bristol City at Ashton Gate in the Championship. City’s talismanic goal-scorer Nicky Maynard netted the only goal of the game late in the second half, with Rovers midfielders Simon Gillett and Franck Moussa unable to convert their respective chances against Bristol goalkeeper David James. However, O’Driscoll was full of praise for his side’s performance in hot conditions against a team that are currently on something of a hot streak in the league. “We ran the best team in the league in QPR close recently - and today we were up against the form team in the Championship and we ran them really close,” said Sean. “We created one or two more chances as well, so we have improved in that sense, but unfortunately it is on the end of a 1-0 reverse.” “We can’t say that we are banging it from back to front with what we’ve got, so we have to manipulate the ball. It was a hot day - and I think that both teams looked out on their feet. It’s the back end of the season and we’ve had a difficult year. Keith (Millen) and his Bristol City team have as well with big expectations - but I can’t fault the performance. There are things we can do better and we’ll never come of the pitch satisfied, because there are always things you can do better.” “We had a good week and we prepared really well. It doesn’t change; 46 times we have to do this and 46 times we have to prepare as we have for the last two games. It just gets more difficult when you lose games, because confidence is affected. Credit to the players, they have stuck at it and they need to continue to stick at it.” One concern for Rovers was the early change which saw skipper Brian Stock limp off soon after the start of the second half, looking to limp off the pitch as Mark Wilson replaced him on the pitch. “He (Stock) has an ongoing ankle problem which he needs to sort out,” revealed O’Driscoll. “He felt it at half time and at times with Brian he could do without the half-time break, because he seizes up a little bit. We gave it five minutes, but he wasn’t fit to continue. It’s the story of our season unfortunately.”

picked out Le Fondre, whose first time shot from eight yards was excellently blocked. Le Fondre looked the most likely to break the deadlock, and on 72 minutes he fired just wide with his left foot after strong hold-up play by Ryan Taylor. On 75 minutes Morecambe, who were largely limited to long range attempts in the second half, came close through Kevan Hurst. The former Sheffield United winger drilled a low shot just wide of Warrington’s right hand post from 20 yards, though the Millers ‘keeper looked to have it covered. With eight minutes remaining the visitors took the lead slightly against the run of play, as the Millers had enjoyed the majority of possession in the second half.Neat interplay on the edge of the Rotherham penalty area presented Spencer with a chance, which he took with aplomb by guiding a shot past Warrington and into the top corner. Substitute Danny Carlton almost added a second a minute later, when he hit the side netting from 20 yards with Warrington off his line. The closest Rotherham came to an equaliser was through the lively Marshall, who cut inside from the left wing and fired over the bar from 20 yards. Rotherham: Warrington; Tonge, Fenton, Mullins, Newey, Marshall, Harrison (J. Taylor 85), Bradley (Daley 58), Law, Le Fondre, R.Taylor (Henderson 72). Subs not used: Annerson, Ashworth, Brogan, Green.

LIDDS UNHAPPY WITH MILLER DISPLAY GAFFERS REACTION www.themillers.co.uk

Caretaker manager Andy Liddell bemoaned his side’s performance after Rotherham United slipped to a 1-0 home defeat to Morecambe. A goal eight minutes from time by Jimmy Spencer sealed the win for the Shrimps to leave the Millers in 10th position in League Two. “It wasn’t a good enough performance,” Liddell told Millers Player. “We lacked tempo, quality and confidence which was surprising because all the staff here have worked hard trying to build confidence up. We had a few half chances but overall we just weren’t good enough today. Nobody has tried more than we have to motivate the players and build their confidence. The players now have to take responsibility for their own performance and they will, but we still have a chance. “We will work hard in training next week and try and build them back up again like we did this week. It is hard to put your finger on what went wrong but we will look at the DVD and pick up points on what went wrong.” Despite the setback Liddell refused to rule out an assault on automatic promotion with the gap now stretched to seven points. “It is seven points but it isn’t mathematically impossible,” he added. “The players are making it very hard for themselves and I have told them that. Automatic promotion is a fantastic feeling and some of the players and staff have had it before, but at the moment we are making it hard.” Ian Thomas-Moore was missing for the Millers through injury with his place in attack going to Adam Le Fondre, and Liddell explained the former Tranmere front man’s absence. “Ian is injured. He has a thigh or small abductor strain and I am not sure when he is going to be fit.”

LEADERS TAKE THE SPOILS BLADES NEWS www.sufc.co.uk

The Blades were unable to follow up the impressive success over Leeds in Monday evening’s encounter with Championship leaders QPR. Free-spending Rangers repeated the 3-0 victory they recorded at Bramall Lane earlier in the season but United battled and created plenty of chances at Loftus Road. However, two goals from Wayne Routledge and one from Alejandro Faurlin secured the points for Neil Warnock’s side. Henderson was handed a start after returning from suspension and Collins was deemed fit to play after injury. They took the places of Vokes, no longer at the club, and Lowry, who has a thigh strain. The personnel suggested that boss Adams was continuing with the 4-3-3 system that was successful against Leeds last time out, and, despite being away on this occasion, this was again the case with Evans and Bogdanovic flanking Henderson up top. Wearing black shirts with red shorts and socks, United were put under pressure early on. Smith fired wide and a Taarabt free-kick was blocked by the wall, whilst

Match Reports, Reactions, News, Fans Column - All Articles copyright of www.sufc.co.uk

the visiting side’s first opportunity was a 35-yard half-volley from Henderson, but the effort flew over the crossbar. Montgomery was cautioned after 10 minutes for committing his second foul around the edge of the penalty area and Taarabt was prominent in most of the home side’s early attacks, his team-mates trying to find him at every opportunity. The Moroccan wanted a penalty when he ran into Nosworthy and then set up Faurlin to shoot over the crossbar. From a near-post Taarabt cross on 14 minutes, Hill failed to get enough of a contact and the ball squirmed across the six-yard box. The Blades hit back with a couple of corners and a Henderson header, which was straight at Kenny, before QPR opened the scoring just before the half hour mark. Helguson stayed onside to take a ball down the right channel and from his looped cross, ROUTLEDGE pulled away from Nosworthy to volley past Simonsen. United hit back with a neat and patient move from right to left involving Evans, Mattock, Quinn, Montgomery and Bogdanovic but two efforts were blocked, as was another from the latter, which was confirmed as on target by the replays. Bogdanovic then hit a shot from outside the box that was comfortable for Kenny. One of the lesser attacking threats in QPR’s team, Orr, drifted in

from the right and came within inches of doubling the lead with a left-footed curler from outside the box before a great chance for United arrived on 42 minutes. Henderson and Bogdanovic flicked on to put Quinn clear with just Kenny to beat but the midfielder sliced his effort wide with Hall breathing down his neck. During the two minutes of added time at the end of a frantic half, United did well to push back the home side but were unable to search out the elusive leveller. United began the second half well and Bogdanovic fired over a cross from the right and then a powerful effort from Nosworthy struck and stung Hall’s face. However, bad news was just moments away. Nosworthy conceded a corner and from Taarabt’s delivery, Lowton’s clearance fell just right for FAURLIN to hammer back a volley into the corner of the net, beyond the reach of Simonsen. Despite the two-goal deficit, the Blades continued to battle and Evans fired wide and Henderson could not direct a Mattock cross towards goal. Boss Adams threw on Riise and Yeates, at the expense of Nosworthy and Bogdanovic, switching to 4-4-2 in the process, with Montgomery at right-back. However, soon after, Rangers added their third. United backed off Smith and Helguson before ROUTLEDGE was supplied and

he smashed a low effort across the goalkeeper, into the bottom corner. Winger Routledge was denied a hat-trick by Simonsen’s fine reflex save, after Helguson had nodded down, whilst the first major contribution of Yeates was to pick up a booking for a foul on Kenny. Rangers were now racking up the attempts on goal. Helguson headed over, Agyemang missed a sitter and Simonsen had to save from both Faurlin and Smith. United’s luck was summed up on 77 minutes when a long-range effort from Mattock hit Riise! Bent was introduced for the final ten minutes, replacing the tiring Evans, but he had little opportunity to impress. Henderson did have the ball in the net late on, via a post, but the whistle had already gone as the ball had rolled out of play before Riise delivered a cross. The final moments - plus four minutes of added time - were incidental in terms of the result but United continued to battle for the 415 Blades inside Loftus Road. Bent had an effort blocked and also headed over, whilst a Yeates shot was deflected away for a corner. QPR: Kenny, Orr, Hill, Derry (Buzsaky 86), Hall, Taarabt (Agyemang 71), Helguson, Faurlin, Gorkss, Routledge, Smith (Miller 81). Subs: Cerny, Ephraim, Chimbonda, Shittu. Blades: Simonsen, Nosworthy (Riise 59), Montgomery, Henderson, Doyle, Evans (Bent 79), Bogdanovic (Yeates 65), Mattock, Collins, Quinn, Lowton. Subs: Aksalu, Cresswell, Kozluk, McAllister.

LEADERS TAKE THE SPOILS BLADES NEWS www.sufc.co.uk

Micky Adams had ‘no complaints’ about the outcome of United’s 3-0 loss at Loftus Road on Monday night. Given the respective league positions of the teams the result may not have surprised too many observers but the Blades boss feels that his team contributed too much to their own downfall: “The fact is we have a soft underbelly when we play away from home. We make wrong decisions that cost us goals and that has been the story of our season. “At Bramall Lane we are starting to show the resolve and heart to make tackles, get touch-tight, stop crosses and to block shots, but on the road we don’t clear our lines or fight it out and we put each other in trouble with silly little passes. “Coming down here against the champions elect with their attacking talent was a big enough ask anyway without us handing them chances on a plate because a side like theirs will take them. “It is about having the confidence to do the right things at the right time but I look back at the goals we conceded and think that they could have been avoided.” With Shane Lowry injured and Sam Vokes’ loan over, Neill Collins and Darius Henderson were drafted in to the starting line-up, and for the first hour or so United were in touch: “I always felt that our front three could get at their back four and ‘Quinny’ caused then real problems at times.

SHE IS NOT SINGING JUST YET FANS WEEKLY COLUMN by Jon Warburton

Well it looks as though the Fat Lady is warming up. She’s checking her range, lubricating her vocal chords and preparing to serenade Sheffield United, emphatically, into the third tier of English football for the first time in 23 years. She will however give it one more week if she’s had a look at the fixture list. On the face of it, our league position looks bleak. Seven points adrift of Championship safety with just seven games remaining is not where I thought we would be at this stage of the season. There is a silver lining though, to be found in the forthcoming fixtures of the relegation candidates. While winning has not been a forte of ours anywhere this season, our next two fixtures are both home games. Against Middlesbrough and Cardiff City they will no doubt be difficult, but recently we have shown we can mix it with some of the toughest teams in the division on home turf. Conversely our closest rival in the battle against the drop Crystal Palace are looking at the prospect of away trips to Ipswich Town and Leicester City. The Eagles have the worst away record in the league, with just one win on their travels all season. So put simply, we are capable of winning our next two games and Palace are capable of losing theirs, which would put us just a point behind. Such a scenario would be the perfect tonic ahead of a do or die trip to Preston North End in ten days time. Of course this is all easier said than done. We are notorious for not doing our bit when others have given us a chance. For now I’m willing to hang on, but I do fear that we might be hearing the dulcet tones of that Fat Lady ringing out over Sheffield’s seven hills in a week’s time.

MELLOR LEADS OWLS BEACK TO WINNING WAY MATCH REPORT www.swfc.co.uk

Goals either side of half time by Neil Mellor ensured the Owls returned to winning ways at Hillsborough against Colchester. The recalled striker was too sharp for the U’s as Wednesday turned in their best home performance since the demolition of Bristol Rovers before Christmas - their last S6 success. Steven Gillespie scored a lastgasp goal for Colchester to halve the arrears but it was too little too late for the U’s. Boss Gary Megson called for a steely display and got exactly that with a victory that gives the Owls valuable breathing space at the wrong end of the League 1 table. Both sides made lively starts, with Colchester shading the early possession but the Wednesday defence was resolute, charging down the shooting threat of the visitors. Moving forward, the Owls were cohesive and confident, with James O’Connor asking the first question with a snapshot that rolled just the wrong side of the post. But Colchester then spurned a

gilt-edged chance when David Mooney volleyed wide from 12 yards after gaining a clear sight on goal. Richard O’Donnell was forced into a low diving save from Ashley Vincent’s drilled shot moments later, before Ben Williams had to be alert at the other end to deny Jermaine Johnson. And from the resulting corner on 24 minutes, the Owls took the lead. The ball was cleared to Jon Otsemobor, who fired back into the box and Mellor was on hand to clip calmly over Williams. Mellor was at the centre of the action again on the half-hour mark, this time tumbling in the area under a challenge by Nathan Clarke but the referee waved away Wednesday appeals for a penalty. The Owls stayed in the box seat as half time approached and Gary Madine almost doubled the advantage, coming within a whisker of getting something on Mellor’s curling cross. Wednesday came out for the second half in similar mood and promptly extended their lead on 51 minutes. The source was the same too Otsemobor sending in a fizzing cross that Mellor finished expertly with a powerful header that gave Williams no chance. The Owls were in the mood and Tommy Miller pounded a fierce shot that whistled narrowly over

the bar. Bur Colchester were far from out of the game as was evidenced with two chances in as many minutes. First, O’Donnell came to the rescue with a brave stop to keep out Vincent, before Gary Teale cleared a Matt Heath header off the line. That was as good as it got, though, for the Essex side as Wednesday threatened to turn the screw. Twice Mellor might have had a hat-trick as the hitman had another claim for penalty turned down before his skewed shot at the far post was deflected wide at the last. But Mellor had already done the damage and despite Gillespie’s consolation on 89 minutes - the midfielder thumping home from close range - the Owls can head into Tuesday’s game against fellow strugglers Tranmere with a much-needed boost.

WEAVER SIGNS NEW OWLS CONTRACT OWLS NEWS www.swfc.co.uk

Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Nicky Weaver has signed a new two-year contract, keeping him at Hillsborough until the summer of 2013. Weaver joined the Owls on a free transfer in August 2010 and has excelled between the sticks for his hometown club. His reward is the new deal at the club for whom he has made a total of 58 appearances having already represented Wednesday during a loan spell in the 2005-06 campaign.

The players left the pitch to an incredible standing ovation at half time and Wednesdayites again showed their appreciation for a muchimproved performance at the final whistle. And Megson, speaking ahead of the home game with Tranmere on Tuesday, has expressed his appreciation to the club’s loyal fans. He said: “The players were astounded at the reception they received coming off the pitch at half time on Saturday and at the end of the game. They were talking to the staff after the match and they cannot believe the quality of

LETʼS SEE FANS WEEKLY COLUMN by Bunsen Bob

“How refreshing” was the response I received when informing a fellow Wednesdayite that the Owls had gone two up against Colchester. How refreshing indeed as that much needed win all but puts to bed the threatening spectre of relegation to the fourth tier of English football for the first time in Sheffield Wednesday’s history. It’s been by no means easy for Megson to carve out wins with the disheartened, disparaging and occasionally disinterested squad to hand but I do feel his iron fist approach could’ve been slightly too harsh after the initial period of shock and awe. That said, you have to admire his honesty when commenting on the state of the infrastructure of the club as I doubt many managers would openly criticise their employers so soon into their employment. Megson has balls and will strive to do it his way regardless of what anyone else thinks, whether it’s the players, chairman or fans. Personally, I think this is a good trait. It’s been a long, long while since Wednesday won two games in a row and of course, by the time you read this that may have changed with the game against Tranmere. So if we can generate a barnstorming end to the season (admittedly there is no evidence whatsoever to suggest this will be the case) then the summer will be one of modest anticipation. Let’s see.

the support that we enjoy here. “It had a huge impact on the way our players played as the support that was given to them rubbed off on them. There is support - and then there is Sheffield Wednesday support.” The Owls are expected to be unchanged for the visit of Tranmere, with Megson set to stick with the same side that overcame the U’s.
