Copley’s Column

This week has been extremely sad for many people in Dronfield as one of the most popular residents, Bev Hall, passed away having succumbed after a long illness. Bev was one of life’s wonderful warm human beings and most people will have a favourite Bev story to tell. My own personal favourite was when she came with me in my car to visit our close friend Ray Keddy who was in Chesterfield Royal hospital. Parking that day was at a premium and I was forced to park on a grass verge. After the visit, I found that my car had become stuck in the mud, and Bev, a very strong girl, volunteered t of o push me out. It was very wet and as she was pushing, I got some traction, resulting in Bev finishing up with a tyre wide mud stripe from head to foot. Anybody else would have been furious, but not Bev, who found it hilariously funny. That is the lovely girl I remember, amongst many other things. I am extremely proud to have been one of her friends and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to her nearest and dearest. Rest in peace you most wonderful girl, we are all poorer for your passing. Open mike nights are not everybody’s cup of tea, mainly because they mostly consist of karaoke singers singing the same old songs week after week, but last week was the best ever, with bar staff Sophie and Dawn getting up and were really impressive. These two lovely girls have really got the Christmas spirit. I was absolutely further amazed by a rendition of my good pal Kenny Biggins of that great song, ’Whiskey in the Jar o’. I have been close pals with Kenny for years, and had no idea that he was blessed with such enormous vocal talent. On Thursday night, I went to see a favourite singer of mine, Emma Rossi, who was formerly known as Emma Naylor. Emma has a beautiful distinctive voice and never fails to please. The excellent show was further enhanced by a guest appearance from a girl recently reported on in this column, Ruth Holmes, top singer with Black Rose. This great trouper, much encouraged by me sang, despite having a heavy cold, to much applause from an appreciative audience. I have always maintained that Christmas should

be all about the children, and not an excuse for excessive drinking and partying for adults. A conversation with Jack, the ten year old son of my girlfriend Caron, asking what he wanted for Christmas, confirmed this. When I think about my childhood, when it was not a case of an apple and an orange, but a scalextric or meccano set, or at the very best a new bicycle were the order of the day, I realise just how lucky the children of today are, with all the psp consoles and games high on the agenda. Little wonder that bank robbery is on the rise. An unfortunate consequence of these very expensive times is the emergence of advertising for pay day loans, whereby one can borrow money for a short period of time at exorbitant rates of interest. Stories abound of people borrowing from these usurers, and then borrowing from another in order to keep up with the payments and eventually losing their homes for the sake of a few hundred pounds borrowed in the first place. It is high time that the government stepped in to put a stop to this practice which causes so much misery for the poor people who find themselves compelled to go down this route. Certainly a visit to Meadowhall belies the fact that we are living in times of austerity, with trading seeming to be unaffected. Presumably, the credit cards are taking a hammering, which is the complete opposite of what the present government are trying to achieve. I imagine that the next couple of months will be totally different, with spending being restricted to the bare essentials. Football last weekend locally was amazing, with the big club of the city entertaining Huddersfield in an eight goal thriller. Wednesday were two goals down in the first quarter of an hour, made a fantastic recovery, scoring the next four goals only to surrender the lead with the last kick of the game in the unbelievable ninety seventh minute, the match ending in a four all draw. United were gifted an early Christmas present from Bournemouth with two own goals to maintain their promotion hopes and Chesterfield equalised late on for a much needed point. I welcome Chris Snell, who has taken over the Victoria pub near me for the second time having previously spent four years in charge, twelve years ago. Good luck Chris.

Xmas Special With... ALBERT SNODGRASS

My mate always sends me pictures of women he’s slept with the night before. He’s such a liar though because he accidentally sent me a picture of my wife today and she’s away on a business trip. What an idiot he is. At the start of the exam, the invigilator says, “You have exactly 2 hours. I will not accept any papers after this time has elapsed.” Two hours later, the invigilator calls out, “Time’s up, Ladies and Gentlemen.” One student is still scribbling away ten minutes later when the invigilator has all the collected papers in a large stack front of him. Slowly, the student finishes up and walks over to hand in his paper, but the invigilator refuses to accept it. The student puffs up his chest and says: “Do you have any idea who I am?” “No,” says the invigilator. “Great,” says the student as he slips his paper into the middle of the stack. “Man critical after Specsavers car park crash.” He should have gone to . . . Oh I never had a father when I was young so I used to pretend the rubber from my pencil case was my dad. Erased me well. I like this! This is poor. Edit this My son was born with only two toes, which makes bedtime all that more easier... “This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed at home... Night.” My wife said to me earlier, “Right, I’ve made up my mind about breast reduction surgery.” “OK,” I replied, with some trepidation. “Yes,” she said, “I definitely want you to have it done.” I can’t believe nobody even congratulated me on the hat trick I scored today. Although I guess it would have been a bit more impressive if we hadn’t lost 2-1. Following their failure to lift the FIFA Club World Cup, Qatari club Al Saad have sacked their referee and fined Sepp Blatter two weeks’ wages. My dad came very close to becoming President of the USA. He was an undertaker in the army. Barrack Embalmer. I’m giving up on spraying deodorants in the new year. Roll on 2012. Yesterday, my wife told me that most accidents at home happen in the kitchen. “I know,” I replied, “I have to eat them.” Belgium’s Olympic athletes started training for 2012 summer games by trecking for 5 days across Icelandic glacier in sub zero temperatures. Good forward thinking: aclimatising to British summer weather. There I was sitting, half way down my second bottle of whisky when it suddenly dawned on me that maybe my wife is attractive. I went to the pub last night and the barman said, “What can I get you?” “Have you got anything on draught.” I asked. “Yes mate.” He said, “There’s a furry snake at the bottom of the fire exit door.” A stuffy woman is with her new boyfriend in a top restaurant. The starter onion soup gets to her, and as the waiter is serving the main dishes she lets loose a bombastic fart. Trying to save face, she says to the waiter: “Sir! Please stop that immediately.” “Certainly, madam,” replies the waiter with a bow, “which way was it heading?” A woman, standing nude, looks in the bedroom mirror and says to her husband, “I feel horrible, I look fat and ugly. Pay me a compliment.” The husband replies, “Your eyesight’s damn near perfect.” A father picks up his son after school and asks him how his day has been. “Great dad, today they give me my part at the school play”, says the boy. “Really? and what do you play?” asks the father. “I play a man who has been married for twenty years”. “That’s nice son”, says the father, “you do a good work and one day the’ll give you a speaking role”.

CHAMPION HARRY AND OTHER STARS COME TO THE ARENA

This weekend Harry Judd was crowned the winner of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing with his dance partner Aliona Vilani. The McFly drummer and his partner Aliona triumphed in an evening that saw them perform a dazzling display of four different routines including a sizzling showdance which finished with Harry back banging out a beat on his drum kit. Harry along with fellow contestants Chelsee, Jason, Robbie, Anita, Nancy and 2008’s Strictly contestant Mark Foster will all be on The Strictly Come Dancing Live UK Tour in 2012 The seven celebrities and their professional dance partners will be performing in front of the judging panel which this year features Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood, who is also directing the arena tour for the second year running. The multi-million pound show, now in its fifth consecutive year, opens at the Birmingham NIA on 20 January 2012 before coming here to the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd February. Harry Judd said: “I’m really looking forward to the tour, although I imagine it will be very different to touring with McFly! I can’t wait to test my new found dancing skills and as I’m quite competitive, I intend to win every night!” Anita Dobson added: “I joined Strictly to learn to dance and it is magical that I am. I feel so lucky to be part of the TV show and now to go on the tour and continue dancing with my partner is just a dream come true. I hope the audiences will enjoy the touring show, as much as I will enjoy dancing at every performance.” Robbie Savage said: ”I’m enjoying each week more and more and I’m really glad to be continuing the experience on tour. I can’t wait to be out on the floor every night, hopefully there won’t be any cameras to crash into this time!” Whilst Mark Foster said: “My love of dancing has continued over the past couple of years and it will be great to put my dancing shoes back on and be part of Strictly again.” Tickets for the 2012 tour went on sale in September and have been selling fast ever since. Over the last four years the tour has sold more than 1.3 MILLION tickets. On tour Strictly fans get to watch their favourite dancing couples compete live for votes and the all important feedback of the TV judges. The audience members can then vote themselves via their mobile phone. Arena audiences will get to experience all of Strictly’s glitz, glamour and breathtaking choreography, right in front of their very eyes. The 2011 tour received rave reviews in the national newspapers - the Sunday Express asked “Does it get much better? Not often” and awarded the show a 5 Star review. The Daily Telegraph’s 4 Star review described the tour as “the ultimate feel good show”. And the Mail on Sunday’s 4 star review said that “the audience adored every second”. Tickets are priced £65, £42.50 & £35 (may be subject to booking fee) and are now on sale. You can purchase tickets in person at our Box Office, by phone on 0114 256 56 56 or via our website www.motorpointarenasheffield.co.uk

COLLEY WMC used to treat mouth ulcers and chest infections. It has a spiritual connection which creates a sense of inner peace and tranquility. Weekly Psychic Article by Psychic Glynis

Christmas Myths I wanted to write about something a bit different for Christmas. I have decided to cover two topics, firstly, The Three Wise Men - who were they and what do the gifts they brought to Jesus represent? Secondly, I would like to talk about Jack Frost – who was he and where did he come from? The Three Wise Men ‘We three kings of Orient are ...........’ The Three Wise Men (otherwise known as The Three Kings) came from the East which is also referred to as ‘Magi’. The kings are said to have visited Jesus after his birth, bearing gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh. They had been sent by Herod and followed a bright guiding star which led them to Joseph and Mary and the birth place of baby Jesus. Incidentally, the wise men did not return to Herod but took a different route home.

A Christmas Cocktail (The Three Wise Men) Use three blends of Whisky Johnnie Walker Jack Daniel’s Jim Bream Serve neat or on the rocks to taste Jack Frost Jack Frost has his roots in Viking folklore where he is known as Jokul Frost (Icicle Frost). In Britain, he is the variant of Old Man Winter and is held responsible for colouring the foliage in Autumn and leaving fern like patterns on a cold winter window. According to L. Frank Baums (The life and adventures of Santa Claus,1902) Jack Frost is connected to Santa Claus who often referred to him as ‘The Jolly Rogue.’

Holly Holly with her beautiful red berries has always been associated with Christmas and decking our homes. Pagans say it wards off the Devil. Our Winter Solstice is December 22nd. The Celts The Kings Names believed that this was when the Oak King (ruler of Traditions identify a variety of names for The Three life and summer) vanquished the Holly King (ruler of Wise Men. In the Western, Christian Church they are death and winter). However, times are different now commonly known as… with all the fairy lights and house decorations it is so 1.Melchior lovely to be driving down a street that has made a great 2.Gasper effort on behalf of the Christmas celebrations. 3.Balthasar Mistletoe Bible historian Chuck Missler cites Armenian tradition Kissing under the mistletoe goes back to Pre-Celtic identifying the wise men as ‘Melchior of Persia,’ times when Pagans believed it would lead to marriage. ‘Gasper of India,’ and ‘Balthasar of Arabia.’ It is associated with fertility because the white berries are said to be semen from the Gods, and on that cheeky The Gifts note I say goodbye for now. At the time the gifts were ordinary items, apart from the Gold. Myrrh was commonly used as an anointing So from me have A Very Happy Christmas! oil and Frankincense as a perfume. Gold was given Love and blessings to all the Mercury readers from because of it’s value. However, the three gifts also Glynis have a spiritual meaning..... • Gold - Gold symbolises wealth. It can only be assumed that the kings gave Jesus gold so that he could pay his way in life. Also as a symbol of his kinship on Earth. • Frankincense - Originating from North America, Oman Frankincense begins as a resin from the bark of a Boswellia tree. It is also used in the embalming process to cleanse the body. Frankincense brings peace and balance and a deep spiritual awareness. In order • Situated in attractive grounds to raise low esteem put two drops of Frankincense and • Civil Ceremonies Catered For Geranium into a bath of water as it will lift the spirits. • The ideal venue for your wedding reception Now that would be a lovely Christmas present! • Individual packages available for your special day • Myrrh - Native to the deserts of Oman the tough (Also available for any special occasion) Myrrh shrub oozes a sticky red /orange gum.

SEASONS GREETINGS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR 12 tips of Christmas

http://www.syfire.gov.uk/1737.asp Be safe this Christmas You’ll be busy this Christmas, so you might take your eyes off the cooking. You’ve got friends to stay, but you forget to test your smoke alarm. Or maybe you’re tired and you’ve had a bit to drink. Christmas is a happy time for celebration with friends and family. But for dozens of people in South Yorkshire every year, this happy time is spoilt by an accidental fire in the home. Share these tips with your family and friends to make sure their Christmas is a happy one. 1.Don’t leave pans unattended. Take them off the heat if you have to leave the room. 2.If you’ve had a drink, don’t attempt to cook. It makes you uncoordinated and more likely to have a fire. 3.Never, ever use a chip pan. Oven chips or thermostat controlled fryers are much safer. 4.Keep candles well away from decorations, wrapping paper and flammable materials. 5.Make sure fairy lights are safe to use and British Standard marked. 6.Keep exits clear and if you have people to stay, make sure they know how to get out in the event of a fire. 7.Make sure you have a working smoke alarm on every floor of your home and test it once a week. Never take batteries out to power presents. 8.Look out for older friends and relatives this Christmas. Keep an eye out for potential fire hazards and make sure they have working smoke alarms. 9.Don’t overload sockets – ensure only one plug per socket. Always turn off plugs when they are not in use, except those that are designed to be left on, like freezers. 10.Always use an RCD (residual current device) on outdoor electrical equipment. This safety device can save lives by instantly switching off the power if there is a fault and can be found in any DIY store. 11.If the temperature drops and you use an electric heater, keep it well away from anything flammable- that includes decorations and soft furnishings, and never use one to dry clothes. 12.In the event of a fire, never attempt to tackle it yourself. Get out, stay out and call 999.

Tucked away at Hall Road in Handsworth, Sheffield, one of the cosiest and most comfortably furnished social clubs has just completed yet more improvements. Handsworth Social Club’s concert room has undergone a complete refurbishment and while it accommodates 200 people, the new seating, decoration and flooring give an ambience of comfort that all will enjoy. The stage is superb and the floor is ideal for dance events, for which the club is well-known. ENTERTAINMENT Even though it was formerly a library and reading room, the club is anything but boring. Founded in 1929, the generations of committee members have always adhered to a policy of providing high quality live entertainment, dancing and its ever popular bingo sessions five nights a week, with jackpots up to £300. Sunday lunchtimes provide the opportunity to enter the Open the Box competition. Acts are on stage two nights every week and the festive line-up sees appearances by Steriolove on Friday 23rd, Picture This on Christmas Eve, Sassy on the 30th, Unforgettable on New Year’s Eve and Robbie “H” on New Year’s Day. DANCING The concert room is also open to the public for free dancing every Wednesday at 7:30, when practice nights are held for ballroom and latin dancing, the contact is Robert Dean on 01909 565 810. Robert, who runs Dean’s Banqueting, has arranged the clubs Christmas Dinner events for retired members for the last six years.

Private parties are catered for either in the concert room or the lounge, which itself can accommodate 70 people in comfort. ATMOSPHERE In fact the lounge and its adjoining games room, with full size snooker table, were called “the best little pub in Sheffield” by a former stewardess. Like the concert room the lounge and games room have great furnishings and decorations which create a friendly and cosy atmosphere. Handsworth is a true Social Club, which has a great tradition of supporting the community. This October, a charity auction was organised in support of the children’s hospice Bluebell Wood. An amazing figure of £2,220 was raised by members and they, the steward and committee can all feel proud of that achievement alone. The all important beers are the ever popular Stones Bitter and Carling Lager from Molson Coors plus, as members already know, Wards is also available. These days it is provided by the Robinsons Brewery but brewed to its original 1840’s recipe. MEMBERSHIP Families with children are welcome in the concert room, which is always popular at Christmastime and new members are welcome. With all of the facilities provided, joining is a great idea. You don’t have to be local either, the 52 and 32 bus services stop close by but if you do wish to drive the club has its own car park. Why not visit over Christmas and look at joining – it might be a great New Years resolution to keep.

THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

CHRISTMAS DAY IN THE CLUB CLUBHISTORIANS.CO.UK by Ruth Cherrington

It was Christmas Day in the Club….. And the place was packed, at least back in the day. Christmas and New Year were the busiest times of the year for many clubs as members enjoyed festivities with a strong community feel. As we are in the run-up to Christmas, I am reminded of many a Christmas past in our local club. Most people will first and foremost remember the children’s parties, held in the immediate post-war period in the tin and wooden huts that were the local clubs of their day. They were humble but full of warmth. The kids loved these parties, with sandwiches, pop, trifle in small paper dishes and crackers to pull, entertainers, games and a present to collect at the end. Mothers would be on hand to help out and the dad’s probably not too far off having a pint. At the other end of the age range, the seniors were treated to a special Christmas meal and concert with free drinks as well as a bit of pocket money to spend. Club committees always set aside funds for these events but few can afford to do so anymore: a sad loss for all. There were pantomimes in some clubs whilst others took the kids to one nearby. Meanwhile, there would be special concerts for Christmas Eve, perhaps a ticket-only affair and these would quickly sell-out. This was definitely a time to get to the club early as it would get packed out. There was a long night ahead of drinking, socializing and entertainment. Clubs could apply for a bar extension and having an extra hour of drinking time made them additionally attractive. This is where the pubs lost out and also on Christmas day when most of them were closed. Clubs often were open even if for Sunday hours. Ours was and people would be waiting outside at 10am to get in and claim seats for the family even though the bar didn’t open till 12! It might be the only day of the year some members made it to the club. People would exchange greetings and kisses, and make jokes about who got the daftest Christmas present. Some would be nursing hangovers from the night before and others fretting about the turkey. Children would be running around in new outfits and showing off their presents. The club was the meeting point for families, friends and neighbours. Of course, some had one too many and would act out of order but on the whole the celebrations were wellmanaged under the watchful eye of committee. There was no need for the ‘booze buses’ (mobile medical units) we now see in the run-up to Christmas in city centres. Why not use your club this Christmasit’s probably much safer than venturing into town! Have a happy and peaceful Christmas dear readers!

REVIEW: Trash Talk @ The Corp by KT Evans

So we’ve all been to one of those gigs where things just get that little bit brutal. Where people have a little bit too much to drink and start to think they’re a little bit too much like Iron Man. And at these gigs, that’s where the best kind of performances are unearthed. A whole hearted salute to the hardest of hardcore genre, Trash Talk tried and succeeded in well and truly kicking the s*it out of Corporation on 9th December. Stemming from California USA in 2005, Trash Talk along with Spycatcher, Defeater and Every Time I Die were all part of the Rock Sound Riot Tour 2011. A collaboration of some of the most brutal hardcore bands on the current metal scene, Trash Talk however took to the stage like true champs to give the most fluid and at ease performance of the night. With a speedy forty five minute set, the four piece raced through a performance of swinging from the ceilings, crowd surfing and general onstage chaos to sure as hell rile up the six hundred strong audience. Famed for his…(excuse the grose understatement)… energetic stage presence and lack of stillness throughout Trash Talk’s set, lead vocalist Lee Spielman took on the role of Tarsan towards the latter half of his bands show, obviously intent on testing the strength of Corporations rather thin ceiling pipes. Having scaled his way through his fans front stage, monkey man then shimmied up the drain pipes to swing from the roof. This then incurred a crazy fan to then make his way onto the stage to attempt a stage dive (you can see where this is going), only to trip and face plant the audience’s metal barrier. Yep it really was that kind of gig and yep he really did have a broken nose. YEAHH!! Performing tracks off all three of the bands studio albums, Trash Talk serve less of a musical performance with more emphasis on their stage presence and crowd reaction. It would be hard to test their success in terms of musical ability had they not got such a charismatic front man as Lee, although credit where it’s due, they put on one hell of a memorable show. For more info on Trash Talk, visit their official website www.trashtalkhc.com or visit their facebook page www. facebook.com/trashtalk or tickets, tours and merch.

PREVIEW: Reggae @ The Earl by KT Evans

2012 is nearly upon us (and so is the Zombie Apocalypse if you’re down with all that nonsense) so what better way to celebrate in style the death of 2011 with a good old knees up at The Earl Of Arundel’s Reggae Night. Held on the penultimate day of December just off Queens Road, expect a party Bob Marley would only be too proud of with DJ Guests and performances from some of the city’s most influential Reggae DJs throughout the night. Although historically being held on Boxing Day in the past few years, the night itself has been scheduled for the last Friday of the month, so don’t go spending all your Christmas money too quickly! Boasting itself as a ‘…nice and cheap night…’ The Earl is not only situated close to town but also is prime location for a late bar venue. Openings its doors to the public at 22:00, expect the shindig to go on to the very early hours of the morning with a charge of £2 on the door throughout the entire night. Specialising in reggae, revival, roots, soul, RnB along with Dancehall, Mr Legs Diamond as well as Prento Judah are all set to grace the Earl’s DJ booth to supply some serious beats on the night. Short Yout and JDR Foundation are also confirmed along with some extra special guest DJ’s rumoured to grace the Sheffield’s masses. And if that wasn’t enough for you Reggae lovers, the Earl are also offering drinks offers though out the evening’s shenanigans. Hurrah! Known around Sheffield for harbouring some of the best metal, hardcore and alternative nights in terms of a live music experience, The Earl of Arundel has seen the likes of Malevolence and Never Cry Wolf take to its modest stage, some of our region’s most prosperous hardcore bands. Not narrowing itself to a certain genre convention however, the venue holds monthly nights around the entire genre spectrum, allowing for an alternative take on most music venues in Sheffield. Reggae night at The Earl of Arundel if strictly over 25s so for those of you lucky enough to be over eighteen… we’ll see you on the dance floor! For more info on the night, visit the Earl’s facebook event (Reggae night at the Earl) for more info including location, opening times and prices. And remember…dreadlocks are SO not cool!

to host a huge underground music event using the entirety if the building for the first time. A massive collection of Sheffield music promoters, artists and record labels have joined forces to fill all 6 rooms of the venue with a wide variety of sounds. This ranges from cutting edge DnB and dubstep to swing and live bands, from minimal techno to chilled house and even some funk, soul and Motown thrown in for good measure! The Mad Hatters Ball have hosted large scale NYE events in Sheffield for the last four years. This year they play host to one of the main rooms at Yellow Arch combining 4 promotions covering DnB, reggae/dub, jungle and everything in between. Headlining this room is the mighty Bryan Gee. A definite legend in his own lifetime, Bryan Gee has been at the helm of DnB for nearly twenty years. His V Recordings record label has pioneered some of the biggest names in the business and helped to create new sounds and styles within the genre. The vocal headliner in this room is Kenny Knots, another long-established artist who has been one of the leading lights in UK reggae/dancehall scene since the early 90s. Also appearing in this room are Sheffield-based international act, The Junglist Alliance, the Feedback DJs, selectors from Dub Central and Liquid Steel. With <20hz sound system providing the trouser-flapping PA expect some serious sub frequency vibrations! The second room is hosted by Dark Crystal and Sequoia Soundsystem. Headlining this room is Youngsta, a founder of dubstep who has performed all round the world and is resident on Rinse FM and at FWD>>. Tribe of Xanadu are an outdoor events collective from Sheffield who have been hosting tents and providing crews at many of the UK’s festivals, including Eden in Scotland, award winning Why Not? in Matlock and the legendary Glastonbury. If anyone knows what a good party consists of it’s these guys! For those who prefer a slightly more refined affair The Big Swing which currently takes place every Wednesday at Revoltion de Cuba, are also hosting a room. The Sheffield Techno Institute room will feature Ed Horsely, Terry Dragatis, Anagram and Celler Dweller playing minimal tech in true underground styles. For those who need to take a breather, the Bitz’n’pieces crew from local bar, The Harley, will host the chill out room, playing everything in the world of eclectic and chilled beats. The event has two outdoor areas, two bars, six rooms of music and wondering entertainers to give the full-on festival/rave experience.

Usually around this time of year, the 23rd December is awash with daily panic and evening celebrations of males flocking towards petrol stations in desperate search for that last tired-looking bag of browned-flowers for their girlfriends, people in shopping outlets humming ‘Here come the girls’ as they trip over wet halfeaten German sausages and limping pigeons. The 23rd is that last call of freedom before that traditionally enforced meeting-up of a family unit to gag on Sherry and be comatosed by multiple ingested flying beasts. But there is an answer here. Before that finale inhaled breath we take before stepping into the mistletoe and kissing our Nan (who has a tash/ beard combo that puts your attempts at Movember to shame) – The Harley, perched on the top of West Street, offers an evening of pure Christmas enjoyment. The frowns, removed present price tags have to be left at the door. The 23rd December sees three allied bands play a final show before Christmas – with plenty of gifts for all the punters. These bands are Hey Sholay (Psych-pop-trip-pop outfit), MadColours (formerly Heebie Jeebies, tropical energetic Zappa enthusiasts with ‘sherberty’ fingers) and Hot Soles (uber-Bill Sykes being lectured by B.B King – ‘truncheon style’, blues-duo), all of which are currently stirring up a culinary embolism of a brainstorm in Sheffield at the moment. We’ve been told that, as well as live performances of the above, there will in fact be a limited CD EP release to mark the occasion, which sees both Hey Sholay and MadColours cover each other’s material (interpreted somewhat remarkably different to the originals), and also play together on an improvised 18 minute track. This CD will be offered at discount to door-ticket sales, and be available to buy inside. Tickets are going fast for this event, so make sure you check out the following outlets for tickets: HMV (Fargate and Meadowhall), The Harley, Wick at Both Ends, Kuji, The Old Sweet Shop To further, local selected dj’s will feature to close the night around 4am. Then you can get up and panic about Christmas. And remember the Chocolate fingers for Nan. It makes her look like Magnum P.I.

Angler’s Corner

The North’s largest entertainment weekly, telephone our sales team to get your advert on these pages 0114 276 3633 opt.1

by Clint Walker

After last week, I had to get out fishing! Some lovely people at www.ukmatchangler.com had arranged for me to try out some terminal tackle from PikePro at www.baitbox.com so I thought I’d better get out there and do a bit! I’m not a regular pike angler, so I headed off through the snow to Cudmore Fishery in Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire to fish Tara Pool. If you don’t know, 2011 saw Cudmore designate Tara as the predator pool and stock it with hundreds of pike, catfish and HUGE perch to give the specimen predator angler a perfect venue. The staff on site are all great anglers so if I needed advice, it would be readily available. It was snowing when I woke up and the radio bought news of road closures, but I set out into the howling weather in a suitably bad mood to get to the venue for opening time; as I drove along, the sun came out and the day cleared dramatically.....so did my mood as I rolled into the car park and met George the bailiff who informed me that although the fishing was tough at the minute, I might sneak one if I was lucky....not a great start, but it didn’t put me off as I set up in a quiet bay on the back of the wind. Bait for the day was half a ‘bluey’ presented on size 8 trebles attached to a readymade trace paternostered off a ‘pike bomber’ which is basically a swimfeeder arrangement filled with a sponge insert which can either be soaked in, or injected with fish oils or juices to provide added attraction around the hook bait. This was lobbed out near to a sunken tree and left to settle before I tightened up to ensure I didn’t miss anything. My second rod had a small sprat suspended below a float to try and search a bit of open water and this was deposited a little further out. After a couple of hours, a single bleep on the legered deadbait alerted me to the fact that my rod tip was getting twitchy; a few small lifts and falls of the indicator told me something was going on, and, with the bait at close range, I thought I’d better investigate.....as I lifted the rod, the unseen predator took off across the lake before tail walking back towards me at some speed! As I’ve already stated, I’m not a pike angling expert so this evolution came as a bit of a surprise, but how exciting is it when it happens??! Wow! Safely in the net, the fish was transferred across to the mat for unhooking; I’m still a little nervous around anything with more teeth than me, and this critter certainly had more than me, but with a little gentle persuasion, it obligingly opened up and let me slip the trebles out. It wasn’t a huge fish at 10lbs 8ozs, but on my first pike venture of the year, I was pleased to register my first double. Thanks to all the staff at Cudmore (www. cudmorefishery.com) and Ray Best at www. ukmatchangler.com for sorting the products and arranging my session.

U21 Division Norton Oaks U21 bounced back from a 5-1 drubbing at the hands of Dronfield Athletic U21, to beat third placed Mosborough U21 2-0. The goals came from Matthew Scothorne, as well as an own goal. The Meadowhall League now takes a break for two weeks due to the festive and New Year celebrations. The clubs will return to action on Sunday 8th January. Windsor Food Service County Senior Football League Premier Division The top two, Stocksbridge Park Steels Reserves and Penistone Church, met at Bracken Moor last Saturday. It was a fitting way to go into the mini Winter break. Penistone led Stocksbridge by one point prior to the game

and that remained the same ninety minutes later. The game was a predictably cagey and ended 0-0. Athersley Recreation sit in third, but were unable to take advantage of the top two dropping points. They were held to a thrilling 3-3 draw by Wombwell Main. Davy FC put up a good effort against fourth placed Swallownest Miners Welfare at Davy Sports Ground. They were, however, downed by three goals to two. Millmoor Juniors followed up last weeks’ defeat of Davy with a good 3-1 away win over Ecclesfield Red Rose. Jake Houghton (2) and Mark Deeley got the goals for Millmoor. An excellent performance by High Green Villa saw them beat South Kirkby Colliery 6-2. Daniel Archer and Scott Chamberlain scored twice each with Dominic Beevers and Ben Compai also on target for the Villa. Division One In the First Division, Houghton Main made it seven wins in a row, when they beat Penistone Church Reserves at the Memorial Ground. A single goal did the job for leaders, as they consolidated their four point lead. Second placed Frecheville and Worksop Parramore shared seven goals. Frecheville came out 4-3 winners though, inspired by two goals from Robert Ward. John Higgins and Daniel Bainbridge were also on the score-sheet for Frecheville. Shaun Grice, Lee Concern and Ben Brown got the goals for the unlucky Worksop Parramore. Fifth placed Thorpe Hesley hosted fourth placed Swinton Station Athletic at the Civil Service Ground. They were both made to share the spoils after the exciting game ended 3-3. Division Two Leaders Athersley Recreation Reserves took advantage of Gleadless’ cup preoccupation to extend their lead to six points. They comfortably beat Sheffield Bankers 3-0. Goals from Vahn Burgiss and Gavin Thorpe gave Thorncliffe a 2-1 away win over Millmoor Juniors Reserves. Bottom side Sheffield Lane Top grabbed a much needed point, when they drew 2-2 against mid-table Clowne Villa. Second bottom De La Salle Old Boys, gained a similarly reputable point as they also drew 2-2 against fourth placed Boynton Sports. Boynton have now only won one game in five matches. S&HCFA Rosehill Association Cup Third Round Two all County Senior league ties took place last Saturday in the Third round of the Rosehill Association Cup. Both of the fixtures were originally scheduled for the 10th December but were postponed due to bad weather. The first of ties saw Division One sides Caribbean Sports and Aqua Force Barnsley meet at the Caribbean Sports Club. A single goal from John Smith was enough to give Aqua Force a 1-0 victory. Mike Jolley scored the winner for Hallam Reserves as they beat Oughtibridge WMSC 1-0 at Sandygate.

MILLERS DING DONS BIG APPLE IN TOWN MATCH REPORT www.themillers.co.uk

MATCH REPORT www.themillers.co.uk

The Millers gained a vital three points for their promotion push as they beat AFC Wimbledon 1-0 at Don Valley. Sam Wood’s powerful 78th minute strike was the difference between two evenly matched sides in a match that could have gone either way. The first chance of the game came inside the first minute when Ryan Jackson cut the ball back to Luke Moore who blazed the ball over from just outside the six-yard area. Danny Harrison was the first on target for the Millers when his powerful effort from the edge of the area was well saved by Seb Brown. It wasn’t long before the AFC Wimbledon goalkeeper was called into action again, this time Harrison connected with Dale Tonge’s cross before Brown acrobatically turned the ball over the crossbar. The Millers maintained the pressure with efforts from Johnny Mullins and Brett Williams both going agonizingly wide of Brown’s goal. The visitors came close just after the half hour mark when Samuel Hatton raced down the right hand side before his cross was met by the head of Lee Minshull whose effort went inches wide. The Millers were almost caught off guard when Hatton’s corner was misjudged by Conrad Logan before the ball flashed across the face of his goal. Jack Midson had the first chance of the second half when he found himself through on goal, but as he latched onto the loose ball he was flagged offside. The Dons had a great chance to open the scoring when Minshull found himself unmarked in the area, but his header was expertly cleared off the line by Danny Schofield. The visitors continued to pile on the pressure this time Hatton’s cross picked out an unmarked Moore whose header had Logan beaten, but trickled just wide of the post. The Millers responded when Sam Wood’s low cross found Lewis Grabban at the back post who was unable to turn the ball in. The Dons almost opened the scoring again, this time a Jackson cross from the right hand side was well met by the head of Midson who should have hit the back of the net. The Millers finally broke the deadlock on 78 minutes when Wood received the ball just outside the penalty area, before driving his low shot into the bottom corner, ensuring all three points for Andy Scott’s side.

When Rotherham United make their historic return back into Rotherham next season it will be to the iconic New York Stadium. Chairman Tony Stewart along with Honorary Ambassador Howard Webb today formally announced New York as the name of £20m landmark venue, in front of a packed media gathering at its location, the former Guest and Chrimes Foundry site. The name New York is in fact the historic name for the area where the new stadium is based. The old Guest and Chrimes Foundry actually made the distinctive fire hydrants which are dotted around the streets of New York, USA. The site was active from 1857-1999 and in its early years was one of many South Yorkshire iron and steel works which exported metal infrastructure to the growing cities of the on the other side of the Atlantic. Millers Chairman Tony Stewart described the new name as the perfect link between the history of the area and the bright new era which awaits the club. “The new stadium name is strongly rooted in more than 150 years of Rotherham’s proud history of industry and enterprise, linking the old and the new eras and, I believe, it befits such a fantastic new stadium right at the heart of Rotherham,” he told www.themillers.co.uk “I have had many letters, emails and calls from fans with their suggestions. But, over the past few weeks, the support for New York really started to gather momentum. After careful consultation and detailed research into the local history of the site, we felt that New York was the perfect name for our new stadium. “We also feel that the name can open doors for the commercial team at Rotherham United, and we looking into the possibility of setting up links between Rotherham and New York, USA.” World Cup Fial referee and Rotherham United Honorary Ambassador Howard Webb was given the honour of revealing the name for new stadium, and he felt a great sense of pride at being the man chosen for the occasion. “As a lifelong supporter of Rotherham United I am absolutely thrilled to be able to announce the name for the new stadium,” said Howard. “Rotherham United is my hometown club that I have supported all my life. The Millers are responsible for my interest in the game. To become involved with the cub was a huge honour, and now to be here, whilst the club stands on the verge of this momentous new era, gives me a sense of great pride.”

SHARP DOUBLE SEALS HOME WIN

Rovers pressed on and got their reward with two goals in three minutes from SHARP. The first one came in the 63rd minute when he headed in from close range and then three minutes later acrobatically met a ball from Stock and lashed it into the far corner. Leicester replied by upping their game and things got a bit feisty as they battled for the equaliser. Wellens had two efforts from inside the area but put wide each time. A couple of corners to the visitors were well defended. Stock had a 25yard drive saved and Coppinger after a good run put wide under challenge. As time ran down Leicester piled on the pressure but the Rovers defence were not going to allow this winning opportunity to go awry although there were a few anxious moments. Three minutes of added time were successfully negotiated and the Rovers had won three valuable points.

MATCH REPORT www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk

The Rovers made two changes in the starting line-up, Gary Woods replacing the injured Carl Ikeme and Giles comin in for Herold Goulon. There was plenty of endeavour in the opening twenty minutes but it was nearly all in midfield. A corner apiece was the sum total of attacking intent. Then, in the 25th minute, Gallagher for the visitors got down their right before crossing for Howard to head in from 15yards but Woods went high to his left to tip away for a corner. On the half hour O’Connor, for the Rovers played the ball in for Sharp to chest down for Gillett, whose half volley was over the bar from just outside the penalty area. Stock followed this by shooting wide from 25yards. Stock then played Fortune in on the right but from the edge of the area he blazed high and over the bar. Then, in the 38th minute, out of the blue the visitors took the lead when NUGENT was played in down their left to the edge of the Rovers area before firing over the advancing Woods into the far top corner of the net. The Rovers responded but the Leicester defence held firm. A scrappy opening ten minutes was climaxed by the visitors stringing together a series of passes before Nugent fed Howard, who shot over from the edge of the penalty area. The Rovers then went on the attack with good movement finishing with Gillett hitting his shot into the ground and Schmeichel having to tip the bouncing ball over the bar. Then Sharp got to the right bylineand pulled the ball back for Gillettto shoot over from the edge of the area.Past the hour mark and the

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY NEWS 2011/12 EIGHT GOAL THRILLER AGAINST TOWN MATCH REPORT www.swfc.co.uk

Wednesday and Huddersfield fought out an incredible 4-4 draw at Hillsborough on Saturday. The Terriers fired an early brace from Jordan Rhodes - who would later bag another double and complete a fourgoal haul - before the Owls hit back with two of their own, with skipper Rob Jones and Reda Johnson on target. Wednesday then completed a remarkable turnaround as second half strikes from Ben Marshall and Chris O’Grady appeared to have sealed victory. But Rhodes scored two late goals to round off an amazing afternoon in S6. All the early pressure came from Huddersfield and leading scorer Rhodes had an early chance to give the visitors the perfect start but headed over the crossbar following good work down the left by Lee Novak. But Rhodes then hit the Owls with a double whammy of two goals in three minutes that sparked an amazing burst of first half action. First, on 13 minutes, Gary Roberts cut inside from the left channel and delivered an accurate cross into the danger zone that this time was duly converted by Rhodes. Three minutes later the same two players linked up in a similar fashion with the same end product, giving Wednesday the proverbial mountain to climb.

And climb it they did. The warning signs were there for the Terriers when Johnson’s header in the box lined up O’Grady but the striker just failed to get a decent connection on the turn. Then, remarkably, Wednesday hit Huddersfield with a double blow to turn the game on its head. On 27 minutes, Marshall floated a measured cross to the back post where Jones was on hand to head across Ian Bennett and into the back of the net to halve the deficit. The, two minutes later, with Wednesday turning the screw and moments after the Owls had a penalty appeal for handball turned down, the home side struck again. Bennett did well to save an O’Grady snapshot, Sanchez Watt’s shot was deflected on to the crossbar, and Johnson drilled a low shot home when the ball came back into the area from David Prutton. Wednesday were buoyed - so too were the home contingent in a crowd of over 28,000 - and O’Grady smashed into the side netting just before the interval to almost send the atmosphere into overdrive. Both sides - and indeed both sets of supporters - needed to draw breath at half time following a frantic opening 45 that swung one way and then the other in equal measures. It would have taken a stunning second period to match what unfolded in the first but the pace stayed the same. Megson introduced Ryan Lowe at the break for Watt and the Owls maintained the energy and drive that pegged the Terriers back before the whistle. And Megson’s men burst into the lead just past the hour.

Marsall took possession down the left wing and beat his man inside before calmly placing a slide rule shot beyond Bennett to hand the Owls the advantage. Marshall then hit a low shot narrowly wide as Wednesday continued to press and O’Grady’s looped header in front of the Kop on 73 minutes appeared to put the game out of sight. But Huddersfield struck again on 79 minutes to set up a grandstand finish when Rhodes completed his treble with a powerful drive across Stephen Bywater. The Owls responded with Lowe forcing a fine save from Bennett and Jose Semedo went agonisingly close following the rebound. But Huddersfield pushed forward in pursuit of an equaliser and snatched the leveller with almost the last kick of the game when Rhodes stabbed past Bywater with a crisp drive to conclude the most incredible contest of the League 1 season so far. Owls: Bywater, Tavernier, Jones, Batth, R Johnson, Marshall (Bennett 90), Semedo, Lines, Prutton, O’Grady, Watt (Lowe 46) Unused substitutes: O’Donnell, J Johnson, Morrison Huddersfield: Bennett, Hunt, Naysmith, Bruce, Clarke, Miller, Gobern, Roberts, Ward (McDermott 71), Novak (Parkin 83), Rhodes Unused substitutes: Colgan, Woods, Arfield

Gary Megson says the Owls will learn from the setback that saw his side lose out on three points against fellow promotion chasers Huddersfield. Wednesday and the Terriers played out a pulsating 4-4 draw at Hillsborough, with the visitors scoring two late goals to snatch a share of the spoils. Huddersfield had earlier stormed into a 2-0 lead only to see the Owls bag four goals and seemingly seal the points. But Lee Clark’s side hit back themselves with a late brace to conclude an incredible League 1 clash. Megson said: “We lost the game, won the game and drew the game. We have to learn from that. “We have made mistakes. We talked about it after the game and we must learn to play with more intelligence when we are in positions such as that. When you are two goals to the good with a few minutes to go, you expect to see the game out and win. “But we will pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down and make sure we are ready for Walsall on Boxing Day.” Despite the overriding disappointment, Megson took positives from an enthralling afternoon in S6. He added: “We had over 28,000 in the ground, which is the biggest crowd in the division this weekend and one of the biggest outside of the Premiership. “We may struggle at some things but never the support. “We showed the heart, fight and desire to get back into the game after going 2-0 down to score the next four against one of the best sides in the division. “I was really pleased for Chris O’Grady to score his first goal at Hillsborough, that will do him the world of good. “So there are a lot of positives but that doesn’t mean we won’t learn from the mistakes we have made. “If you make mistakes you get punished and we did. Jordan Rhodes, in my opinion, is the best striker outside the Premiership and he will play in the Premiership, his finishing was marvellous.”

BLADES MAKE IT SIX WINS STRAIGHT MATCH REPORT www.sufc.co.uk

The Blades go into the Christmas period on the back of six successive wins after two own goals paved the way for a victory at Bournemouth. In-form Ched Evans orchestrated both own goals - from central defenders Adam Barrett and Steve Cook - as the Blades ended the home side’s impressive run. A total of 1,109 Unitedites, some dressed as Father Christmas, braved the cold on the south coast and were rewarded with a fine victory. Boss Wilson named an unchanged team, keeping faith the XI that comprehensively defeated Rochdale. The only change was on the bench, where McAllister replaced Montgomery, who was suffering with a chest infection. In-form Bournemouth went into the game having not conceded for four league games but they were quickly undone by Evans as United grabbed the lead on five minutes. Williamson and McDonald were involved in the build up and Evans powered in a low cross which BARRETT deflected into his own net, via the underside of the crossbar. The home side’s appeals for a penalty,

following a Collins clash with Sheringham, were waved away by referee East, whilst Bournemouth’s day could, and probably should, have got even worse on 10 minutes. A mix-up in defence resulted in Cresswell racing clear and after he had rounded goalkeeper Flahavan, he saw his shot kicked off the line by Francis. However, the striker’s reaction seemed to suggest he thought the ball had crossed the line before the intervention of he former Blades defender. Bournemouth’s first chance of note arrived on 12 minutes but a half-volley from Symes was wide, although Simonsen was at full stretch. The effort was quickly followed by Collins blocking from Pugh after his header had presented the home side with a chance. Doyle’s long-ranger swerved but was parried away by Flahavan on 23 minutes and although the remaining minutes of the half lacked goalscoring opportunities, the game was not devoid of attacking, passing football by both sides, with the game flowing from end to end. United won a number of corners, whilst Bournemouth delivered a number of crosses which Maguire and, particularly, Collins had to deal with. Sheringham was the first to be yellow carded, adjudged to be late on JeanFrancois, and he was quickly followed into the book by team-mate Cook and United’s Maguire, for seperate fouls. Just before the break, Cook headed over a corner from

Daniels. Chances were also limited at the start of the second half but United went close on 49 minutes when McDonald picked out a pass to find a clever run from Evans, but Flahavan cut out the subsequent cross. McDonald took two knocks to the same knee in quick succession and was replaced on 59 minutes. Ertl took over and won three defensive headers in a matter of minutes as United came under a period of pressure. From a Daniels free-kick on 64 minutes a Pugh header was caught by Simonsen under his own crossbar. Williamson was booked, presumably for speaking out of turn, whilst Molesley was also cautioned for kicking the ball away as United prepared to take a quick free-kick. Flahavan was right on the edge of his box moments later when he collected Quinn’s diagonal pass, which Cresswell looked to get on the end of. United’s second goal, though, was moments away and it has a very similar look to the first. On 77 minutes, Ertl delayed his pass nicely to put Evans in the clear and his cross, after making tracks down the right, was turned into his net by COOK, ahead of Cresswell, who was on hand to finish, if necessary. In the final ten minutes, Doyle was booked and Cresswell was replaced by Porter, who had a chance to net but was caught by his marker. The closing minutes, plus five more for stoppages, gave the Blades fans extra time to sing and celebrate collecting three more points. Bournemouth: Flahavan, Barrett, Pugh, Sheringham, Symes, Cooper (Molesley 6), Gregory, Fogden (Taylor 75), Daniels, Francis, Cook. Unused: Jalal, Cummings, Purches.

Blades boss Danny Wilson was very pleased with his team’s performance after watching his side pick up three more points at Bournemouth. “It was a very strong, very disciplined and very determined performance against a good team who were in good form, going to the game.” said Wilson, who has now seen his team win six games on the trot. “The home team showed that they could be a threat but I thought we stopped them really well and showed pockets of great play, where we looked excellent.” Two own goals gave the Blades victory but Wilson was convinced that there was not any luck involved. He added: “The crosses Ched put in were undefendable, they were goals anyway, even if the defender does not touch the ball. They are great goals from our point of view and, we thought, well deserved, we could have been three up after 20 minutes.” Looking ahead, Wilson will be taking nothing for granted when Notts County visit Bramall Lane in the next encounter. “This result will give us confidence, as it should, but we will be taking nothing for granted ahead of the live TV game against Martin Allen’s team, a game we will have to work very hard in but one we are really looking forward to.”
