LORD MAYORESS HITS THE GROUND RUNNING The Lady Mayoress, Nicola Ashton, and two of her children, are getting their running shoes on for the Sheffield Half Marathon 3km Fun Run to encourage everyone in the city to participate in sport. The race, which starts shortly after the main 13.1 mile half marathon, takes participants on the pathways in and around the famous Don Valley Stadium. This year organisers are encouraging children, students, businesses and

families alike to raise £30 for one of the ten official charities so the race can donate the most money they ever have and hopefully reach a £100,000 target. The Lady Mayoress, said: “I’m not an experienced runner, but it’s been great fun training and preparing for the Fun Run. We’ve loved running together as a family, and it’s something all ages can enjoy doing together.” Gary Clifton, Sheffield City Council’s Major Sports Events and 2012

Programme Manager, said: “Sheffield is famous for its fantastic elite sporting events, but the Sheffield Half Marathon and Fun Run are brilliant, because they show that sport really is for everyone. There are still places available for the Fun Run, and we would like to encourage more people to come forward and get involved.” Margaret Lilley, chair of the SIG Insulations organising committee, said: “I’m thrilled the Lady Mayoress and

Domestic & Commercial Flooring

her two children have decided to enter the Fun Run to raise awareness and money for our ten official charities. I’m sure they will have lots of fun seeing all the fancy dress costumes, or they may even be in one themselves! “I always find the Fun Run inspirational because runners could be three, or even 93-yearsold. If they can do it then so can anyone, and with the half marathon full to capacity it’s the perfect excuse to enter. I wish the Lady Mayoress and

her children the best of luck for race day.” The SIG Insulations Sheffield Half Marathon and 3km Fun Run will take place on Sunday May 8 2011 at Sheffield International Venues-managed Don Valley Stadium. The chosen charities for 2011 are: Sheffield Teenage Cancer Trust, Motor Neurone Disease Association South Yorkshire, British Heart Foundation, Myasthenia Gravis Association, St Luke’s Hospice, Multiple Sclerosis Therapy

Centre South Yorkshire, Sheffield Wildlife Trust, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

COPLEYʼS COLUMN

There is much debate and action groups at the moment to save our pubs and clubs, with Toby Foster giving it a mention on Radio Sheffield this week. My view on the situation is that lobbying the government is a waste of time, in these times of austerity. We therefore have to look at alternative ways of addressing the problems being faced by our pubs and clubs. As most of the pubs are owned by pub companies, the days of the majority owned by brewers being long gone, there is little or no opportunity of reducing the price of a pint, leaving the only option of having to buy trade by way of providing top class entertainment. My home town of Dronfield has lost four pubs due to the economic climate, two of which are now Indian restaurants, which is a small boost to the remaining outlets on the premise that they will inherit the trade of these pubs. Ex Human League member, Russ Dennett, has played a major part in stimulating the drinking economy of Dronfield, not by his own consumption as a few comedians might opine, but by having a huge following, and booking Russ, either with his band Junkyard Dog, or in his occasional appearance in a duo is guaranteed to fill the venue. Johnnie and Von Howe at the Victoria are limited to the entertainment they can put on due to neighbours who are happy to pay under the odds for a house due to the proximity to the pub, and then want to complain about the noise. He has gone down the route of employing the best solo and duos. The last fortnight has seen the appearance of Rachael Raynor, Sunny Daye and Tony Lewis, all within walking distance of my house. It is like living near to the Palladium. This, together with the inspired residency booking of ‘entertainer of the year’ Gary Phillips, every Thursday, commencing 28th of April, will secure the economic health of this lovely pub, and this is really the way to keep our pubs and clubs. Friday night presented us with a dilemma, as Junkyard Dog were at the Talbot, another walk away from my house and Sunny Daye was at the Victoria. We solved the problem by going to see both of these quality acts, the first half of the evening being spent with Junkyard Dog and finishing a great

night of entertainment watching Sunny Daye. Such is the quality of entertainment in Dronfield, I have long maintained it is the Las Vegas of North East Derbyshire, Saturday presented me with mission impossible, with three venues providing the best in entertainment, all in close proximity to my house. The Mayor’s annual charity fundraiser at Hilltop Club featured top band Big Business, ex Score lead guitarist Marvin Whyte, was appearing at the Horse and Jockey Unstone with his newly formed band and Tony Lewis was at the Victoria. As I had very good reasons for attending all three events, I took the line of least resistance and had a night in with Caron, the love of my life, thus hopefully offending nobody, and getting a few brownie points with ‘her indoors’ On Thursday night, I, along with good friend, Gary Sinclair, who needs a bit of cheering up at present, crossed the border to the Embassy, to attend an evening with Tommy Docherty, legendary former manager of Manchester United, who may well also want cheering up after his former team were beaten in the FA Cup semi-final by Manchester City. My preferred team, after Sheffield Wednesday, is Bolton Wanderers, who were surprisingly thrashed by Stoke City. Thank you to Jamie at the Embassy for the kind invitation on Thursday, and of course I shall be reporting the evening next week.

Weekly Wit With... ALBERT SNODGRASS

Married couple is traveling down interstate 66 doing 55 mph. The husband is behind the wheel. His wife looks over and says, “Honey, we’ve been married for 14 good years, but now I want a divorce.” The husband says nothing but increases their speed to 60 mph. She says, “Don’t be trying to talk me out of it, because I’ve been having an affair with your best friend, and you know what .. he’s a better lover than you.” Again the husband says nothing but speeds up as his anger increases. She says, “I want the house with all the contents.” Again the husband speeds up some more. Now he is doing 70 mph. “The kids too.” The husband just keeps driving little faster, faster and now he is up to 80 mph. She says, “I want the car, checking account, and all the credit cards too.” The husband says nothing but slowly starts veering towards a upcoming bridge overpass piling, as she says, “Anything you want?” Husband says, “No, believe I’ve got everything I need.” “Really? What’s that?” Just before they hit the piling wall at 90 mph, “Husband says “I’ve got the airbag!”

Department. Plenty made up but some parents did not get the chance as their child had passed over. Give the children plenty of Tender Loving Care. Weekly Psychic Article by Psychic Glynis

Life Lessons (Part 2) We all have lessons to learn in our lifetime. We are born and must make our way in the world experiencing both good times and bad. Some people are more successful than others. There is one thing we all have and that is hope. One thing’s for sure and that is that life is what we make of it. (11) Share Your Love. It’s not what you have in your life but who you share it with. Cherish special moments because in the bat of an eyelid it could all disappear and never be re-claimed. (12) Make Peace with Yourself. Stop beating yourself up for what you did or didn’t do. There will always be a reason for the choices you have made. You must accept things on both on a practical and emotional level. (13) Challenge Your Preconceptions. Things are not always as they seem so keep an open mind and concentrate on your spiritual development. You will have a clearer perspective on life and its challenges.

(16) Set Your Spirit Free. When we die our soul is separated from our body. This also happens in Astral Travel. Don’t try to Astral Travel if you are not experienced in spiritual matters as it is dangerous and you might not get back into your body. (17) Cherish Your Kids. I cherish my two children. I say a nightly prayer to keeping my family safe. Some kids go down a bad path, but forgive them, it is up to the parents to resolve the issues that surround children. I experienced many child/parent fallouts when I worked in the Accident and Emergency

(18) Be Forgiving. How many times have you said to someone ‘I will never forgive you’? They may have done something really bad and you feel justified. Imagine if something happened to this person, how would you feel then? I say ‘forgive but never forget.’ There may come a time when you regret what you have said but forgive yourself and then make an apology to the offended person. You will feel much better than bearing a grudge.

(19) Trust Your Intuition. Intuition is the little voice that guides us in what to do. I trust my gut feeling 100%. If it doesn’t feel right then it’s not. It’s same with meeting someone for the first time so trust your gut feeling. (20) Shape Your Destiny. Before we were incarnated we agreed a plan of life. Some may say ‘I did not choose a life like this.’ The plan was a blank sheet, which we fill with our actions and the choices that we make. The next life you are granted will depend on this.

Those are some of Life’s Lessons. I hope you follow them and are happy with your life. Any articles (14) Think of Yourself. Question the motives of suggestions, questions or psychic bookings txt anyone who has all the answers. Their advice may be 07811632353 or psychicglynis@talktalk.net self-serving, whereas another person may give their knowledge with love. Don’t let people put you down, SPIRITUAL EVENING everyone is equal. It’s the level of confidence we have and what we do with it that matters. (15) Open Your Mind. Transformation is when we open our mind to the beauty around us. Open your mind to spirit communication and you will receive it.

GRAND CHARITY NIGHT FRIDAY 6TH MAY 2011 In Aid of Pierce White-Carter Featuring

STEPHANIE KING’S STARS OF THE FUTURE STAGE ACADEMY

Pierce White-Carter is 9 years old and he lives in Huddersfield with his Mum, Dad and four siblings. In 2009 on the day before his 8th birthday he was diagnosed with Nueroblastoma. Since then he has undergone frontline treatment which failed and he was sent home to be made more comfortable. Since then his family spent as much time together as possible, in time when his life span was exceeded. He was rescanned and was told the

tumour was shrinking so started a new course of chemotherapy. The family were then told the treatment wasn’t working and the tumour was growing. Options in the UK ran out but there was hope in Europe. The best possibility for Pierce is RISTtherapy in Germany to control Nueroblastoma followed by proton therapy in America to destroy the cancer and cure Pierce once and for all.

On to Freshly Squeezed – and as always a lively, exciting stage show – always a bit different with new numbers and costumes! Sam & Kim had organised the event, and there is another shortly to be held at East Dene. A big thanks to Freshly Squeezed, Hi readers. This week I went some way off my patch to Hyde Harrison and indeed Hyde Park Club for giving up their time Park WMC in Doncaster, for a and facilities for free to help the charity night, and was warmly welcomed by the Club Secretary, charity. It’s what makes Clubland special – so support your local and Keith. let’s keep it going! Harrison Scott and my good friends Freshly Squeezed were Paul (Rocky Horror) due to appear, along with a third act who failed to turn up or even notify the club in advance. Not a great advert for the profession, but on the other hand Harrison and the Girls simply got stuck in, did a bit extra, and made over £850 for the Aurora Cancer Charity. Harrison has a great voice, and real stage presence. He’s freelance these days and can be reached on 07929 369904. Between acts I caught up with a couple of Clubland regulars – the duo renegade were there supporting the night, and I also got the chance to meet Trevor Tunnicliffe – writer of Mr T’s weekly Clubland blog.

Has the smoking ban & cheap drinks called time on our locals?

VOICE OF THE NIGHTINGALE RADIO NIGHTINGALE by Mel Jacques

The weather controls most things in life, why not let it control the lottery too! The Radio Nightingale lottery winning numbers are taken from Fahrenheit temperatures around Europe, with the last digit of six cities forming the winning sequence with which your numbers must match. The Sunshine lottery takes place 4 times per week (Monday Thursday) and has a daily jackpot of £10,000. Entry into the draw is £1 per line, with 35% of this going to Radio Nightingale. Other prices are available for matching 3, 4 or 5 numbers in the correct sequence. The Lightning lottery takes place just once per week, again £1 per line. This time though the jackpot is £25,000. Again other prices are available for 3, 4 or 5 numbers and prizes are not shared on either lottery if multiple people win the jackpot on the same day. 60% of your prize stake on this draw goes to Radio Nightingale. If you’re interested in joining either of our lotteries to win £10,000 or £25,000 you can register online at www. weatherfunds.co.uk or contact us for an information leaflet.

THE CIU, CLUBS ENJOY LONDON & EQUALITY WITH MAGIC CLUBHISTORIANS.CO.UK by Ruth Cherrington

It was only as recently as the 2007 CIU AGM that delegates finally voted to change the rules concerning women and Associate and Pass Cards, thus paving the way for equality between the sexes. It had taken several decades of proposed amendments, heated discussions and close run voting. The necessary two-thirds majority was always elusive, until April 2007. Clubs, as private member institutions, had the right to make their own rules to some extent, even if this went against existing legislation such as Equal Opportunity laws. 2010 saw yet another Equality Law, making things even more difficult for clubs that treated membership of men and women differently such as with different subscriptions. We know that some clubs wanted to keep a space for men, with women allowed to be members but without full access or rights. Clubs were, after all, working men’s clubs but times have changed and it’s hard to maintain an argument now in favour of discriminating against women. Not being able to buy Associate and Pass cards meant that women couldn’t easily use other clubs without a male partner Radio Nightingale broadcasts or attend branch meetings if they 24 hours a day, 7 days a week were on a club committee. Those for the patients and staff in favour of equality argued that of the Rotherham General Equal Opportunities laws were Hospital on 945 &1350mw and Hospedia. For more information a fact of life and if clubs acted against their spirit then they would about the station visit www. eventually feel the wrath of the radionightingale.org.uk government. Plus, practically speaking, clubs need women not Current volunteer vacancies: only as paying customers but • Website designer to work on the committees as it • What’s on guide presenter becomes increasingly difficult • Saturday sports show presenter to find enough male members • Football commentator to carry out all the tasks. At this • Request collector (Tuesday or year’s AGM, some ‘tidying up’ Wednesday morning) of rules took place so that women • Fundraiser are treated as full members • Voice over artist / creator which means they pay the same rate as their male counterparts. Contact us on 01709 304244 The previous practice of ‘ladies for more information on members’ paying reduced rates, volunteering. and a smaller fee going to the CIU per capita, was no longer feasible. It wasn’t fair to women, nor to men. What if a man wanted to pay a reduced membership fee in return for reduced rights? There was no option for men to do that: they had to cough up the full rate. By altering Rule 10, to read ‘full membership’ rather than male membership, affiliated clubs will now pay the same sum of money for both men and women. Some lady members might not like paying a bit more for their membership, that’s true but such changes have happened in other areas of life. The benefits for both sexes in the club movement will surely become obvious in the near future and let’s hope the old division between men and ‘ladies’ disappears. We all need to pull together to help the CIU and the clubs pass on a sound legacy for the next generation.

MAGIC AM by Trevor Thomas

It’s the home to so many stars and of course Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting married there any time now. We’re giving you the chance to get away from it all and enjoy a short break in London. Basically, we’ll whisk you off to the capital on East Midlands Trains with your partner, put you up in a hotel and provide you with tickets to see one of the world’s top entertainers – Barry Manilow. Having played to sell out crowds all over during the last forty years, and more recently in Las Vegas, you will witness the opening night of his only UK dates at the O2 Arena in London and it’s easy to take part. All you have to do is tell us what Lola’s occupation was in the hit song Copacabana? A – Belly dancer B – Showgirl C – Traffic warden Text ‘LONDON”, then a gap, and then your answer A, B or C together with your name and the area you are from to 63103. All texts will be charged at £1.00 plus your standard network rate and you have until this Sunday May 1st at 10am to enter (full terms and conditions are listed online at www.magicam.co.uk). Geoff Hemming will call the winner during the Breakfast Show on Holiday Monday May 2nd. Good luck. Talk to you next week when I’m back from my hols. Trevor

Celebrating 100 Years - Killamarsh Juniors Athletic Club & Institute

KILLAMARSH JUNIORS

Athletic Club & Institute KILLAMARSH JUNIORS ATHLETIC CLUB & INSTITUTE – 100 NOT OUT! A modern building, superb facilities, a thriving membership of over 1400, live entertainment every week, a regular children’s disco, fourteen sports teams, golf, fishing and indoor games – the Committee of Killamarsh club provide proof that, despite the predicted death of pubs and clubs, good management and forward thinking can indeed create a club that sits at the heart of the community with financial stability and commercial success as a by-product. As the Club proudly celebrates its Centenary, the members can look forward with confidence to many more successful years as the next generation slowly begins to make its presence felt.

Pictured L-R Paul Holehouse (Steward) Jim Towns (Chairman) Arthur Jones (Secretary) Frank Wood (Committee Member)

Between them Secretary Arthur Jones, Chairman Jim Towns and Treasurer Steve Archer can boast over ninety years of combined service on the Club’s Committee, ably supported by Chris Jackson, Melvin Brookfield, Frank Wood, Dave Weston, Pat Calpin, Bill Rice, Martin Derbyshire and Alan Froggat. Steward Paul Holehouse, together with Tracey and Josie Wostenholme (who is shortly due to retire after almost thirty years) keep the clubhouse running in tiptop order. The club currently supports no less than nine senior and junior cricket teams in the summer, three men’s and two ladies’ football teams in the winter, and provides the members with bingo and quizzes four nights a week, theme nights on Fridays,

Killamarsh First XI in action last Saturday

karaoke with Paul Anthony on Sundays, and a regular stream of live acts on Saturday nights. Centenary Celebrations are already well under way – on 27th May the cricket teams are holding a 30 Over Fun Day match for all the family – and an All Star Charity Night with top live acts is planned for later in the year. Recently the Club held a Centenary Buffet with United legends Ted Hemsley and Len Badger as special guests. The Club has come a long way in the last twenty five years – the Management Committee are rightly proud of their reputation as a place where people of all ages can socialise and play sports in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere – bad behaviour is simply not tolerated. The Club’s Trustees and management Committee are planning ahead, and actively looking to recruit the next

generation of Officers to carry on its long and proud tradition, to ensure future generations of members will continue to benefit from the solid foundations laid in the first 100 years! Here at the Mercury, we wish Killamarsh all the best for their celebrations, and take our hat off to the work done by the Committees of the last 100 years – it is wonderful to hear of a club in such great shape financially, and proves that, despite all the doom and gloom, a well run and carefully managed club can still succeed even in these difficult times!

Celebrating 100 Years - Killamarsh Juniors Athletic Club & Institute

A Brief History... The Club was founded in 1911 with the aim of providing sporting facilities for the young men of Killamarsh. Sited originally in the Old School House on Sheffield Road, it soon moved to an old lean-to opposite the Mission Rooms. In 1926 the members purchased two army huts from Beverly, and linked them together on the present location, purchasing two snooker tables for one of the huts. Those tables are still in use today, having been relocated into the modern building! Meanwhile the second hut provided changing facilities for the Sports teams, and doubled up as a function room. Initially the Club played cricket, football, tennis and bowls, although the war years took their toll, and by the 1970s only cricket and snooker survived, supported mainly by the generosity of Joseph Booth, the owner of local travel company Booth & Fisher. Following his death in 1978, the Committee decided that survival could

only be achieved through adopting a more commercial approach. It successfully applied for a drinks licence as a means of raising revenue since funds were down to less than £100! However the club began to flourish – members rallied round to help plaster the walls, install new seating and carpets, and gradually the club was transformed. A loan of £40,000 from Wards Brewery helped fund the building of a new lounge, bar and changing rooms, and the loan was repaid inside seven years. By 2002 the club was booming – plans were submitted to demolish the old huts, and by 2003 the present modern building was complete at a cost of £250,000 – paid for entirely from the club’s own resources – a truly wonderful achievement! Despite all the current problems within the general economy and the licensed trade in particular, the club has a competitive pricing structure for its drinks, and can still support all the sporting activities that take place – with an annual membership fee of only £7.00 for men, £3.00 for ladies and £5.00 for juniors!

Killamarsh Tarmacadam Ltd is a small company with a large wealth of knowledge in the tarmacing and road construction industry. I have over 30 years of experience in the trade and as a result I have built up lasting relationships and contracts with large corporations and local councils in the Sheffield, Nottingham, Barnsley areas and beyond. With a qualified team behind me I am also fortunate enough to accommodate tarmacing and paving ideas for domestic households in the Sheffield, Rotherham, Chesterfield and Mansfield areas.

Domestic services include: * Tarmac driveways * Block paving * Garden paths Industrial & Commercial services include: * Road construction * Sub-contracting * School and playground work

FIRST TRAMLINES ACTS ANNOUNCED

Tramlines is back!!! And to be quite honest, we simply cannot contain our excitement. To be held from 24th – 26th July, the festival is once again totally free and set to blow everyone’s socks off. With bigger, better and more accomplished acts than ever before, Tramlines 2011 promises not only to showcase the very best of what this country has to offer musically, but also provide one hell of a memorable weekend. But we all know that, because we all queued up in the longest line in history on Division Street last year and crammed ourselves onto Devonshire Green to rave it large with Craig David. So let us ponder no further about how good this year will be, lets get straight on the confirmed acts of 2011. Although many more acts are to be announced in the run up to Tramlines, a hand full of bands and acts have already been confirmed to tingle the taste buds of the festivals adoring fans. First up, one hell of a big name, Ash are to be playing on the main stage on Devy Green. These guys have sold over eight million albums world-wide and headlined the festival republic stage last year at Leeds and Reading Festival. Frankie and The Heartstrings have also declared their love for Sheffield by signing up to play Tramlines. The five piece from Newcastle successfully combine light, breezy tunes with catchy lyrics to create the perfect summer sound track. Their debut album, Hunger, reached the UK top 40 and has received heavy praise from the likes of NME and Q magazine. Also confirmed, Rolo Tomassi, Sheffield’s hugely successful progressive hard-core five piece. Last year they caused a pretty big stir when their set instigated a colossal circular mosh-pit outside the City Hall. Fingers crossed the same will occur this year then! Toddla T, arguably Sheffield’s most promising DJ has also signed to play Tramlines along with Pete Mckee’s Everly Pregnant Brothers (‘No oven no pie’ as oppose to ‘No woman no pride’ is the best line in musical history?) and the increasingly popular Dry The River. Radio 1 DJ and master of all things Reggae, David Rodigan is also on the confirmed line-up for Tramlines 2011 along with indie Sheffield band The Crookes, who played a smashing set last year at The Grapes on Trippet Lane. Many many more bands are to be announced for Tramlines 2011 so keep your eyes and ears peeled. For more info, visit Tramlines official website www.tramlines.org.uk or search for Tramlines on facebook. See you then! KT Evans

SEVENTH HEAVEN Shed Seven have announced they are to embark on a UK tour this December calling in at The Academy on December the 8th. Following the huge success of their last two sell-out tours, the band will return to the road to play a selection of their hit singles whilst also celebrating the 15th anniversary of their platinum selling album “A Maximum High” by revisiting several of the tracks from that album. Lead singer Rick Witter said “It’s fantastic to be getting back on the road again. I can’t believe 15 years have passed since A Maximum High and it will be good to revisit one or two songs that have been untouched for many years. We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve for this tour, we want to be doing something a bit different each time we go out. We’ll also be playing the hits you’d expect to hear, it wouldn’t be a Shed gig without Chasing Rainbows would it?!.” A Maximum High spawned 4 of the record 5 top 40 singles the band notched up in 1996, which included Going for Gold and Getting Better, and saw them break into the Britpop big league. The album went top 10 in the UK and the band toured it around the world. “In those days it was all Top of the Pops, Chris Evans, Richard and Judy and flying around the

LIVE PREVIEW by KT Evans Off With Their Head The Washington - 29/04 - 01/05

So, what’s the plan for this weekend then? It’s either saying in to watch the Royal Wedding, drinking tea and eating cucumber sandwiches, whilst enjoying the finer aspects of live. Yes, it’s either that or going out to the Washington on Fitzwilliam Street, drinking beer and eating kebabs whilst listening to some dirty local Sheffield music. Join us and vote for the latter! In honour of good old Kate and William, The Washington is hosting their very own, unique take on the bank holiday weekend; Off With Their Heads 3 Day Music Festival. Beginning from Friday 29th at 17:00 until 1st May, expect to witness a whole host of local bands, acts and DJ’s all set to kick the bank holiday weekend into shape. This Friday will see six local bands perform, including Violet May, Fallen Trees, Jack and the Beanstalks, Banditos, Love Boats and Becky Marshall along with DJ Sets from infamous Wet Nuns, Jon e3sa34 and Banksy. With heavy, guitar fuelled sets and notorious stage presences, expect big from Violet May who have a reputation as being one of Sheffield’s most notorious live acts. Fallen Trees and Jack and the Beanstalks have historically played some really exciting shows along with Love Boats who have gained quite a following in the recent months. Saturday 30th will kick off around 19:00 with Death Rays of Ardilla, Black Cat White Cat, The Ratells, Little Robots, Glistening Pelt ad Dyonsis all ready to take to the Washington’s stage. Saturday will also see DJ sets from Warren Peace (clever that!) and Dead Dolls who are resident DJ’s at SOYO Live every Monday evening. And as for the ‘chucking out’ time on Saturday? The pubs facebook page says ‘til late’… interpret that as you will! The final day of the festival, Sunday 1st May has confirmed Mega Aquarians, Pete David and the Payroll Union, The Great Eastern, Wooderson and Stan Skinny and the Neats all of who are ready to imprint their interpretation of the Royal Wedding to the masses. The closing DJ set will come from Alcoholic Maniacs Scooter Club. Sunday’s events will be ending at 1am. The Festival is free for all, however don’t forget your ID as the Washington is over 18s only. For more info on the 3 day event, see the Washington’s facebook events page.

world. Obviously a lot’s changed in 15 years, personally you’re as likely to find me on the school run as swinging my mic lead on the stage but hopefully we’ve proved that good songs played by a good band, stand the test of time and I still feel the stage is where I’m meant to be. Shed gigs are somewhere people can lose themselves and sing their hearts out for 2 hours. See you at the front…..” Artist: Shed Seven Venue: O2 Academy Date: Thursday 8th December Tickets Available for www.gigsandtours.com

PETS CORNER

DOGS & CHOCOLATE Thousands of pet owners could be putting their pets’ lives in jeopardy this holiday period if they feed their pet chocolate intended for people, according to leading veterinary charity, PDSA. Chocolate is highly poisonous to many pets, with dogs being most commonly affected. A Report from the charity has found that over half a million owners actively feed their dogs human chocolate as a treat, and this figure could rise as chocolate becomes the focus of people’s attention over the coming weeks. Chocolate contains theobromine,which is highly toxic to dogs and other pets. High quality ‘posh’ chocolate poses the biggest risk to the nation’s pets; an average bar of dark chocolate (30-45g) contains enough theobromine to fatally poison a smaller dog, such as a Yorkshire Terrier. PDSA Senior Veterinary Surgeon, Sean Wensley, comments: “Easter and chocolate go hand in hand, but people should never feed it to their pets. Every year, vets treat thousands of cases of chocolate poisoning in pets and sadly, for some, the poisoning is fatal. “Our recent PDSA Animal Wellbeing Report has highlighted a wide range of health and welfare issues facing the UK’s pets. Where the Report focuses specifically on the diets that pets are being fed, it reveals some very worrying findings about the unhealthy and dangerous foods being fed to some pets, of which chocolate is one.” One of the most memorable cases PDSA vets have dealt with is Buster, a five-year-old Labrador from Derby. He was treated for chocolate poisoning after he sniffed out and wolfed down a dozen chocolate cream eggs. Buster was found by his owner howling, unable to stand and with a swollen abdomen, but luckily the theobromine content of cream eggs is relatively low, and Buster went on to make a full recovery. But Buster is just one of the many cases of chocolate poisoning that vets deal with every year. The Veterinary Poisons Information Service (VPIS), a national resource which provides information to vets about poisons and associated treatments, reports that on average they receive 150% more calls about chocolate poisoning in the month of Easter than in the following month. Sean continues: “Dogs have a keen sense of smell, and many will happily sniff out hidden Easter eggs. What is worrying, in addition to these accidents, is the number of people who actively give their pet chocolate intended for humans, many of whom are unaware of the potentially fatal consequences.

bait. I arrived at the venue to be told that fishing was hard going due to the bright sunshine and prolonged hot weather, so I had a wander until I found some fish in a shady bay. I set up a couple of rods, one with the method mix, and one as a ‘control’ using just a straight pellet/bomb rig to be able to compare the liquid. Casting in, I had a take on the ‘liquid’ rod within four minutes!! I know, I thought the same......fluke, however I didn’t get chance to tighten up after the second cast as the line was pulled out of my fingers as another hungry carp grabbed the bait! Two fish in ten minutes set the bar, and throughout the morning I had a further dozen or so fish, all but one falling to the same rod! I’m confident it was due to the addition of the new liquid, and it will form part of my attack for the rest of the season; find out more at www.pallatrax.co.uk

SHEFFIELD Tigers suffered a late collapse in their 53-38 defeat at Ipswich on Friday. Shane Parker was top man for the Owlerton side on his return to his first British club with 11+2 but he didn’t get the support he needed. And skipper Ricky Ashworth had a nightmare meeting with just 1+1 on an afternoon to forget just hours after a memorable maximum in the home win over the Witches. Tigers hopes of getting back into it with a tactical ride from Hugh Skidmore in heat 11 were blown away when the Aussie trailed last before his motor stopped and another Ipswich 5-1 in heat 14, Risager and Jerran Hart leading home Sanchez and Ashley Birks, added to Sheffield’s woes.

Last week I wrote about producing my own glugs as part of my baiting strategy when I’m trying to find an advantage to my angling; this week I’m going to continue in the same vein by highlighting another Pallatrax product. As I’ve already said many times in this column, anglers always seek to find that new ingredient to make their baits more attractive than the angler next to them, and many flavours, triggers and who knows what else goes into baits which are then aggressively marketed to catch anglers and fish alike. Do you ever stop and think just what (or who?) is being ‘caught’ by these ‘new’ baits and additives? Or what exactly goes into them? Or how they are produced? Or if they contain natural or artificial components? I’d hazard a guess that for many anglers, ‘celebrity’ endorsement, attractive packaging and unrealistically low prices make the decision for them, and this may result in the purchaser not getting the product he thinks he is........ Regular readers will know I’m part of the Pallatrax team; you may not know however that (sadly) I’m not paid by them, so publicising their products is not done for financial gain, merely because I think you can gain something from them!! Pallatrax have recently released a new range of natural liquids in four different ‘flavours’ which offer a great potential for increased catch returns. Coming in bloodworm, krill, shrimp and earthworm varieties, the liquids are, as the name suggests, completely ‘natural’ which is a huge improvement on other additives containing preservatives, chemical enhancers and artificial flavourings. The liquids are PVA friendly, so you can use them as part of a stick mix, use in a solid pegs of pellets, dip hook baits, add to ground bait or method mixes and anything else you choose to do; be warned though, only tiny amounts are necessary as they really are pungent! I must also advise that the labelling warns ‘not for human consumption’......just in case you get the urge!!! Do they work though? To be fair, I’ve only used the bloodworm so far, adding it to a matched method mix in pursuit of commercial carp with a dipped pellet hook

ICE HOCKEY By Sarah Youle

Sheffield welcomed home it’s Team GB players from international duty over the weekend, and Jason Hewitt, Mark Thomas, Jonathan Phillips and Ashley Tait all brought home the silverware, this time in the shape of a Silver medal from the World Championship Division 1B Group tournament in Kiev. Team GB and their fans faced a nervous wait after they won their game, taking a 3-2 victory from their game against Poland, a game-winning goal from Ben O’Connor giving them the win. That win guaranteed them a medal, however the colour would be decided by the evening’s game, when the Ukraine took on Kazakhstan. A gold medal finish (if Ukraine were to beat Kazakhstan by three goals or less) would have seen Team GB promoted to Pool A, the top-flight of international hockey. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be, as Kazakhstan beat Ukraine 3-2 in overtime. Steelers fans can still apply for season tickets for the 2011-12 season, application forms are available from the club office or online at www. sheffieldsteelers.co.uk. The Sheffield Steelers Supporters’ Club Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday May 26th in the Glacier Suite at Ice Sheffield. Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start. All SSSC members are welcome, however only adult members can vote, and a current SSSC membership card is required to vote.

HONOURS EVEN AT OAKWELL MATCH REPORT www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk

Another hot, sunny afternoon and summer football has arrived. The Rovers made three changes to Good Friday’s team, with Brian Stock out with an ankle injury, Mustapha Dumbuya with a hamstring problem and Franck Moussa dropping to the bench. Replacing them are Ryan Mason, Sam Hird, and James Hayter. The Rovers defended the Queens Ground end in the first half. The home team got the game underway and Noble-Lazarus put over a teasing cross in the 5th minute that bounced just in front of Woods causing him to fumble the ball but recovered to block the shot from Gray, with the ball eventually being cleared. Two minutes later and the Rovers won a corner on their left and a good header at the near post by Hayter was beaten out by Steele. Five minutes on and another corner to the rovers from the other flank dropped to Hayter in the middle but he fired over from 10yards. Then Thomas put a long pass out of defence to Euell, who headed it down to Hayter but his shot from 25yards was wide. On the quarter hour, Mellis, for Barnsley, took advantage of hesitation in the Rovers defence to get in a shot from outside of the area but he put wide. Trippier followed this by by bursting through the rovers defence bu was eventually halted before he got a shot in. A period of midfield play followed before the Rovers won a free kick 20yards from goal in a central position but Oster put it high into the back of the stand. At the other end Haynes stabbed wide at the near post from a left wing cross by Hill. On the half hour a Coppinger cross from the right was met with a glancing header by Euell, who,under challenge put it wide of the far post. Then Doyle went forward for Barnsley to get in a cracking low shot from the left of goal. Woods went down to his right to push it out for a corner, which was headed out to the Barnsley right flank where Haynes put it back to Trippier. His deep cross to the far post was met by Noble-Lazarus on the volley but he was well wide. Three successive corners to the Rovers brought a chance of a goal when Hird fired in but Steele produced a stunning save to deny him. Two more corners followed but nothing came from them. In the last few minutes Barnsley hit back. Doyle put wide from 30yards, then a free kick came out of the Rovers defence to Noble-Lazarus. His shot was deflected for a corner that eventually came to Hill on the Barnsley left. His cross was

ROVERS NEWS www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk

Doncaster Rovers’ point against Barnsley, following Monday’s 2-2 draw at Oakwell, is another point on the board to guiding Rovers to Championship football next season - and midfielder James Coppinger admitted his delight at the latest performance from the team. “It was a great performance from us,” Coppinger told RoversPlayer following the game. “To concede that late on, as we did against Cardiff, was disappointing. We have to take a point and Barnsley have done really well over the past few games, so we’re happy to be able to take something from the game. Everybody worked hard; we worked on them over the last few days and we put that into

headed over by Gray Although the Rovers got in the first attack from the kick off it was the home team who had a concentrated period of pressure that ended with Foster putting wide from close range following a free kick on the Barnsley left. Then in the 56th minute a cross by Coppinger on the Rovers right was met by Hayter sliding in at the near post, the ball being deflected for a corner, It was the Rovers turn now to pressurise the home defence. On the hour the breakthrough came when a good build-up by the Rovers led to EUELL receiving the ball and slotting in from close range. Continuing to have the better of the play the Rovers forced successive corners but gained nothing. Then in the 68th minute, Noble-Lazarus and Hird fought a running battle for the ball with the Barnsley man finally getting a foot to the ball but the oncoming Woods blocked and then collected the ball. In the 69th minute, a corner on the Barnsley left fell to FOSTER in the middle of the goal and he stabbed in to equalise. However, five minutes later and Oster shot from the Rovers right, Steele spilled the ball and EUELL had an easy task to put it in the net. Steele then redeemed himself by beating out a fierce shot. At the other end Haynes lifted the ball over the bar from 25yards. The Rovers were having the better of the play as the minutes ticked away. Then, in the 88th minute, the home team were awarded a free kick in a central position about 30yards out. TRIPPIER stepped up, lifted the ball over the wall and into the top corner of the net for a second equaliser. Both sides pushed for a winner but time ran out on a fiercely contested ‘derby’ game that had ended equal.

I just managed to get my foot on it. I thought I might have been offside, but I saw Euelly and squared it in. I was just delighted to see it go in.

SEAN PLEASED MILLERS PLAY OFF WITH POSITIVE CHANCES SUFFER A BLOW REACTION AFTER GILLINGHAM DEFEAT GAFFERS VERDICT www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk

MATCH REPORT www.themillers.co.uk

Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O’Driscoll has continued to praise his side’s performances on Monday afternoon, following a 2-2 draw against local rivals Barnsley at Oakwell. The home side twice came from behind to level, with Jason Euell netting the two goals for Rovers; however O’Driscoll’s delight was focused on the way that his side have continued to react to the disappointing performance against Hull City a week ago. “We carried on again from Saturday,” said the Rovers manager. “The difference over the past two games is that we looked like a side that wanted to stay in the division, but we’ve been unlucky. It’s a difficult place to come and a local derby away from home. We created numerous opportunities, but we lack an out-and-out goal scorer - and you don’t need to be a football coach to understand that one.” “We keep plugging away and we keep getting the ball in the box. If somebody misses something or a chance doesn’t go their way, all we’ve asked for is a positive reaction and in the last two games, we’ve got that. It spreads through the team and we have to make sure that we maintain that.” O’Driscoll went on to praise twogoal striker Jason Euell following his brace against the Tykes, stating that it’s been a pleasure to work with the veteran striker during his time at Keepmoat Stadium. “Jason showed a great deal of enthusiasm and he was in the right place at the right time. If he works hard then he will reap the rewards; but he’s a good professional with a great deal of enthusiasm for the game and he’s been a pleasure to work with since he has come into the squad. I’m pleased for him.” With the way the table stands, Rovers have a six-point advantage over Sheffield United, with a superior goal difference; however O’Driscoll continues to emphasise that he doesn’t look at the league table - and will focus next on Leicester City, before turning attentions to the final day of the season against Middlesbrough. “I don’t look at the table, so there is no point in telling me what’s happened,” said Sean. “We’ll make sure that we do the same things against Leicester, but if we take our foot off the gas, stranger things have happened in football and we could be on the reciprocal end of something strange. Never say never; and we need to make sure that we do the same things on Saturday and the following week against Middlesbrough.”

Rotherham United’s play-off ambitions took a serious dent after a 1-0 defeat at fellow promotion contenders Gillingham. Despite having plenty of possession and chances the Millers were undone by a second half strike by Andy Barcham which sealed the points for the Gills. Andy Scott made four changes, two of which were enforced, for the visit of Gillingham.Nicky Law and Ryan Taylor missed out after picking up injuries in Friday’s draw at Northampton, whilst Mark Bradley and Adam Le Fondre dropped to the bench.Marcus Marshall replaced Law, Jamie Green replaced Bradley, Tom Pope started in place of Taylor, and the fit-again Thomas-Moore came in for Le Fondre. Gillingham had the first effort on target, when Adebayo Akinfenwa rose highest to head Danny Jackman’s free kick straight at Jamie Annerson. Rotherham showed a lot of endeavour in the first half but were unable to test goalkeeper Alan Julian. Pope was felled in the penalty area in the opening exchanges, but referee Mr. Oliver Langford correctly waved play on.The closest the Millers came was a drilled Jason Taylor cross from the right wing, but neither Pope nor Thomas-Moore could connect with it. The visitors similarly failed to really test Annerson until stoppage time, who was a spectator for much of the first period.Cody McDonald, who was kept reasonably quiet by Nick Fenton and Ryan Cresswell, drilled a shot into the side netting on 37 minutes, but the Millers ‘keeper had it covered. Andy Barcham broke the offside trap on 39 minutes, but a heavy first touch allowed Dale Tonge to clear the danger.McDonald sprung into life in the one minute of additional time, twice forcing Annerson into excellent saves to keep the scores level at the break. Julian’s only save of the first period came on 41 minutes but it was a comfortable one.Pope got onto the end of Tonge’s cross but could only float his header straight at the Gills’ goalkeeper. Both sides looked lively at the start of the second half. First Thomas-Moore broke down the right but his centre looking for Green was intercepted by Julian. Then at the other end McDonald found space 25 yards from goal but his dipping shot was deflected behind. On 54 minutes Tonge played a ball into the feet of Pope, who spun in the area but his shot across Julian was deflected behind for a corner. The Millers continued to carry a threat going forward and were close again on 62 minutes. A clever ball into the area by Danny Harrison found Thomas-Moore who turned his man but his shot from a tight angle was over. Gillingham responded with their best chance of the game so far. Adebayo Akinfenwa played the ball in behind the defence for McDonald to run onto but his strike was brilliantly blocked by the onrushing Annerson. Adam Le Fondre came off the bench for the Millers and missed a glorious chance to put the Millers in front on 75 minutes. Tom Newey crossed from the left into the area where Le Fondre was lurking but he glanced his header wide of the far post from six

superior goal difference - and whilst Coppinger admits that Rovers aren’t yet safe - great encouragement can be taken from recent performances and spirit. “We talk about it (league table) quite a lot,” admits the Rovers midfielder. “When we come off we look to see where we are, but if we need to crawl over the line and get safe, then fair enough. It’s in our hands and six points being the difference, we have two games left and if we continue in the form we’re in and show the character and determination we’ve shown, then we will remain in this division.”

yards out. Despite the Millers’ pressure it was Gillingham who took the lead with a huge slice of good fortune. Liam Henderson gave the ball away trying to clear with the ball eventually finding Barcham who glided into the box before his shot took a wicked deflection off Cresswell and looped over the helpless Annerson. The Millers piled bodies forward in search of an equaliser but the run of the ball was favouring the away side. Again after another spell of pressure the ball was looped into the area but the onrushing Jason Taylor couldn’t make a significant contact on the ball, and guided his effort wide. Rotherham United: Annerson, Tonge, Newey, Fenton (Warne 81), Cresswell, Marshall (Henderson ht), Harrison, J. Taylor, Green, Pope, Thomas-Moore (Le Fondre 66).

SCOTT - WE LACKED ENERGY GAFFERS REACTION www.themillers.co.uk

Manager Andy Scott admitted that the race for a place in the play offs is over after the Millers succumbed to a narrow 1-0 defeat against Gillingham. A tight game was decided by a second half Andy Barcham strike which gave three points to the Gills and left the Millers six points adrift of the play off pack. “We get to 60 or 70 minutes and run out of gas,” admitted Scott to Millers Player. “We created a lot of chances, and to be fair to them they are a decent side going forward, but I felt we had the energy going forward for 70 minutes but after that we tailed off and didn’t have that urgency in our game to get us over the line. Their goal came from a little bit of sloppiness and you get punished. “It was a must win game today. We have been hanging on for the last two or three games and other teams have given us a chance and we haven’t been able to take the opportunities at home.” Ryan Taylor and Nicky Law were missing through injury and Scott revealed that they are unlikely to be ready in time for the Millers trip to Aldershot on Saturday. “It is unlikely they will be ready,” he added. “Hopefully Ryan’s back will settle down but we just don’t know and Nicky will need an x-ray tomorrow to make sure there is no damage to the bone.”

JUST ABOUT HANGING ON MATCH REPORT www.sufc.co.uk

United’s slender hopes of survival were kept alive after a miraculous fight-back at promotion-chasing Reading on Easter Monday. Two goals down inside 20 minutes at the Madejski Stadium, United stormed back thanks and two goals from Darius Henderson - against his former club - and one from Lee Williamson. United defended solidly late on and Steve Simonsen made a number of saves to secure back-toback victories for Micky Adams. Boss Adams made two enforced changes. Maguire was suspended after his sending off against Bristol City, whilst midfielder McAllister picked up a calf strain - Collins and Riise were the replacements. United were also short of options from the bench, where just six names were submitted on the teamsheet, including that of development squad leftback Roe. Before kick-off former Blade and Royal, Chris Armstrong, who has recently been forced to retire due to Multiple Sclerosis, led out the teams and was given a rousing reception by both sets of supporters

inside the Madejski Stadium. United changed the formation to give the home side something to think about, beginning with a 3-5-2 system. Lowton, Collins and Lowry were the central defensive trio with Williamson and Mattock in wide roles. In midfield Quinn and Montgomery operated just behind Riise and Henderson and Slew continued in attack. However, it was Reading who settled the quicker and Long had already fired over before they took the lead on nine minutes. A neat triangle between McAnuff, Long and HUNT resulted in the latter squeezing the ball past Simonsen at the near post, just as Collins put in a challenge. A Blades free-kick, which was aimed into the home side’s area, presented Reading with their next opportunity. With 16 minutes gone, McCarthy’s long throw allowed McAnuff to use his pace to beat Montgomery and it was followed with Simonsen batting away a Karacan shot and Hunt firing the rebound wide. Reading’s second was just moments away, thought, when they benefitted from a positive advantage played by referee Wright. From McAnuff’s cross, Simonsen could only parry into the path of ROBSON-KANU, who slid the ball into the unguarded goal. McAnuff then hit a curling leftfooter, which Simonsen palmed away, before the Blades pulled

a goal back with the first serious attempt on the Reading goal. With 30 minutes gone, Quinn’s driving run inside from the left resulted in the ball dropping at the feet of HENDERSON, who deceived goalkeeper McCarthy with a powerless, bobbling effort with his unfavoured right boot. A minute later Henderson went close to doubling his tally, attempting turn the ball home at the neat post from Mattock’s cross and then Riise’s delivery from the right, after Harte’s slip, failed to find a red and white shirt, but the Blades were beginning to ask a few questions. Quinn’s corner was headed wide by Collins and Slew volleyed wide after flick ons by Henderson and Riise. At the other end, the Blades were twice indebted to Simonsen. He raced from his line to collect from the feet of Hunt after a series of defensive errors, and then he held Harte’s curling free-kick with bodies in front of him. However, the final action of the half resulted in United levelling proceedings with a fine move. Slew’s header inside found Henderson, who in turn picked out Quinn’s run on the left. The Irishman held the ball up and waited until his team-mates approached before laying off for WILLIAMSON, who found the target, with the aid of a post, with a first-time left-foot effort. It was the last action of the half

and gave Blades fans hope ahead of the second period. It was quickly apparent that Adams had reverted to 4-4-2 for the start of the second half with Lowton at right-back and Williamson moving into central midfield but once again Reading made the better start, Simonsen had to keep out an effort from Hunt after just 27 seconds. However, just five more minutes of the half had elapsed when United edged in front for the first time. Robson-Kanu was adjudged to have fouled Mattock and from Williamson’s free-kick, McCarthy could only parry, allowing Lowton to delicately chipped back across the goal-line where HENDERSON was ideally placed to nod home from just a yard. Lowry was the first in the book but Harte’s subsequent free-kick struck the wall and the Blades were soon back on the offensive. Lowton cut inside but his leftfooter was weak and then Slew’s celebrations were cut short when he side-footed into the empty net, the ‘goal’ was ruled out, presumably for offside. Henderson’s powerful effort was deflected and then Williamson shot just wide, both build ups involved Slew. Reading made a double change and quickly followed it up by introducing former Blade, Howard, as their last change and he almost made an immediate impact, curling an effort against the crossbar

Following Easter wins over Bristol City and Reading (both 3-2) the Blades are put into a position which three months ago they could only dream about – the great escape. It isn’t going to be an easy task and whilst there is that opportunity to crawl out of the relegation trenches then the Bramall Lane club must keep their eyes firmly focused on that goal. The team to catch now is Doncaster Rovers, who with two games remaining are six points better off than United and more importantly nine goals better off which the Blades must turn around to their advantage should they stay up. Sheffield United will be involved in a fiery encounter with Barnsley at the Lane this weekend whilst Doncaster hosts a Leicester City side eager to make the play-offs (though unlikely). In a nut shell a 3-0 win for the Blades and a similar score at the Keepmoat to the Foxes would reduce the goal difference to -3. On the final day of the season both sides have been pitted away; United are in Wales where they face Swansea who may this time next week could be chasing an automatic spot but are already guaranteed a play-off place regardless. Meanwhile Rovers travel to Middlesbrough who themselves have been on form recently. Of course that’s easier said than done but Rovers know they only need a point from their next two games to stop up, though could do anyway if United fail to win their remaining fixtures; we have a slim chance so let’s go for it. Up the Blades!

on 74 minutes. Another of the home side’s replacements, Antonio, was also a major threat with his long throws. United’s first change was introduce Norwegian Tonne for the tiring Slew but it was the visiting side’s goal that was coming under increasing pressure. Collins made a series of blocks and headers whilst Long wanted a penalty on 82 minutes but was denied by the officials. Lowton made a 70-yard break but ran out of steam at the vital moment, whilst a number of United players were giving their all in the final moments, despite running on empty. Four minutes of added time coincided with Mills being pushed forward for Reading, whilst all United’s XI were back in their own half for the majority of the extra period. McAnuff curled over for the home side but the Blades defended majestically and held on to record a deserved victory - the first on the road in Adams’s reign.

THEY THINK ITʼS ALL OVER... FANS WEEKLY COLUMN by Jon Warburton

The fat lady had done her piece, packed her bag and was speeding off down the Parkway in a bid to be back in time for tea. But she’s only gone on and got off at Catcliffe, nipped in to Morrisons to get some throat sweets and is limbering up for a rousing encore. How we are still in with any chance of avoiding the drop this season is beyond me, but the fact of the matter is it is still possible. When you work it through (as I and no doubt every other Blade in Sheffield has done), the chances of us turning round an eight or nine goal difference is fairly remote. But it’s the type of situation that if the boot was on the other foot and we were in Crystal Palace or Doncaster Rover’s position, we’d fear the worst. It is the sort of thing that happens to us as it did four years ago when we dropped back to the Championship from the top flight of English football. Whether it is unrealistic or not though, fair play to the lads for making a bit of a fight of it. At 2-0 down on Monday we looked dead and buried and to come back the way we did at the league’s form team took some effort. It seems that the innocence of youth has been influential in perking the team up with Jordan Slew, Harry Maguire and David McAllister all putting in match winning performances. It was interesting to hear Matt Lowton being mentioned on the radio this weekend as though he was a seasoned pro, even though he is still only 21 himself. The mixture of youth and experience is finally, belatedly carrying the fight on. So here’s to smashing five past Barnsley at the Lane on Saturday so we can truly keep the dream alive.

OWLS SEND SWINDON DOWN MATCH REPORT www.swfc.co.uk

Sheffield Wednesday posted their fourth home win on the bounce and condemned Swindon to relegation with a 3-1 success on Saturday. A Darren Potter strike and Neil Mellor’s brace - taking the hitman to 20 goals this season - did the damage as the Owls showed no mercy on the struggling Robins. Jonathan Douglas smashed the goal of the game for Swindon but that was as good as it got for the Wiltshire side, who will operate in the bottom tier next term. Owls boss Gary Megson rang the changes, with Nicky Weaver, Reda Johnson, Daniel Jones, Potter and Jermaine Johnson all starting. And the early impetus was with Wednesday as Mellor almost fashioned a dream start, sidefooting just past the post after finding space inside the box. Swindon rallied briefly but fell behind to the Owls’ next chance on 17 minutes. Mellor teed up Potter 20 yards from goal and the recalled midfielder drilled a blistering drive into the net with the aid of a slight deflection off

Michael Rose. The Robins needed a swift response and came close to exactly that when Matt Ritchie burst in on goal but the outrushing Weaver came to the rescue. Then on 27 minutes, Wednesday doubled their lead to give Swindon real problems. Jon Otsemobor picked out Mellor with a delightful looped cross and the striker buried a cushioned header beyond Phil Smith. Two down and staring down the barrel of League 2, the visitors had little choice but to throw caution to the wind and fired a double warning shot just past the half-hour mark. Andy Frampton was a whisker away from getting a finishing touch to Lecsinel Jean-Francois’ cross before the latter forced a fine save from Weaver after trying his luck from distance. And three minutes before half time, the Robins did halve the deficit. A corner was cleared to the edge of the penalty area, where skipper Douglas was waiting to execute a ferocious shot that flew past Weaver into the top corner. Swindon came out apace after the interval but Wednesday broke and scored from their first attack on 53 minutes to all but put the game to bed.

Reda Johnson picked out Jermaine Johnson with a deep ball into the box and JJ forced a fine save from Smith. But the ball eventually found its way to Mellor, who stabbed home from close range to restore the Owls’ two-goal advantage. That goal knocked the stuffing from the Robins, who plugged away gamely but failed to ask any real questions of the Wednesday defence. And at the other end, the Owls nearly applied a final coating of gloss when substitute Liam Palmer’s low shot cannoned off Simon Ferry and was goalbound but Smith produced a reflex save to prevent an own goal that in the event would have been little more than academic.

FANS WEEKLY COLUMN by Bunsen Bob

Gary Megson has spoken of his satisfaction following the Owls’ 3-1 win over Swindon on Saturday at Hillsborough. The victory was Wednesday’s fourth on the trot on home soil and also condemned the Robins to relegation. Megson said: “I am pleased because the players showed honesty and effort. They put a lot of effort in on Saturday at the Bescot against Walsall and did the same today. “I know people on the outside say that playing 90 minutes on the Saturday and 90 minutes on the Monday should be fine but playing professional is very taxing physicallyand mentally. “So it was a good performance and we are starting to do certain things a lot better. The buzzword will always be effort.” Jermaine Johnson was a thorn in Swindon’s side for a good part of the afternoon and Megson confirmed the pace ace will be offered a new contract at the end of the season. He added: “Jermaine will be offered a new contract and then we will see where we go from there. “He does things that few players in this division can do. He has pace, he runs at defences but there are things that he can do better. “He rarely finishes a game through tiredness and he is a better player at home than he is away. “I have spoken to Jermaine and he will have to improve certain aspects of his game.” The Wednesday boss confirmed that Danny Batth reported ill before the game, while he also said that Richard O’Donnell could count himself unfortunate to lose out to the fit-again Nicky Weaver. He added: “Danny was ill so he missed the game, otherwise he would have played. “In goal, Richard can count himself unlucky but in Nicky Weaver, I think we have the best goalkeeper in the division. “Bringing Nicky back was no reflection at all on Richard, who has done very well. What it does for us is gives us options. “We now have three goalkeepers who can play in the first team. Nicky knows he has to perform in training and in games because whoever is playing best will get the shirt.”

It’s steel on steel at Hillsborough next Tuesday as Stocksbridge Park Steels are pitted against Parkgate in the final of the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Challenge Cup Final. This prestigious competition is exclusive to the teams affiliated to Sheffield & Hallamshire Football Association that ply their trade on the non-league football pyramid and is the 4th oldest cup competition in the world. Stocksbridge Park Steels have had some recent success in the league and have reached the Evo-Stick League Premier Division – a mere 3 promotions away from the Football League. Parkgate have had one of the most successful seasons in their history and will finish 2nd in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division, 2 levels below Stocksbridge and 5 promotions away from the Football League. Stocksbridge have won the SHSCC no fewer than 5 times whilst Parkgate have yet to claim the trophy, a final defeat to Sheffield FC in 2006 being their closest attempt. With Stocksbridge’s pedigree in this competition coming up against Parkgate’s young and exciting side, this should be a great game and a great showcase for local non-league football. You can follow both teams on Facebook and Twitter.
