Madness for our Live Music Night Race Meeting in June and I am delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale. “The band always put on and incredible show, it’s amazing to see the crowd, young and old, dancing to classic Madness tracks, I’m sure they will be absolutely electrifying to watch live. With a packed evening of top class horse racing beforehand it’s going to be a great event for people to come and enjoy.” Madness stated: “We’re over the moon to be returning to Doncaster

Racecourse. Our last gig at Doncaster Racecourse was in 2008 and we remember the massive crowd fondly. Four years on, we hear the people of Yorkshire want us back.

Weekly Wit With... ALBERT SNODGRASS

Who will take the second shot in this snooker game? Find out after the break. How do you make a Pirate angry? Take the P out of him. I’ve made loads of money selling my version of Polo that don’t have a hole in the middle. I’ve made an absolute mint. Apparently the camera makers Kodak are going bust. A spokesperson said... “We don’t want to be negative about this, but will just have to see how things develop” The local newpaper published my letter demanding that the council build a new duck pond and I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the results. The council haven’t dug a new pond, but I have been invited to take part in the next series of Celebrity Big Brother. Recent studies have shown that women live longer than their husbands.This is mainly due to the fact that they’re not married to women. I went to see my dyslexic friend today and when I walked through his gate his dog attacked me. I said to my friend, “You should have some sort of warning about your dog.” “I have,” he said, “There’s a sign on the gate.” “Yeah I’ve seen it, “ I replied, “But it says ‘Beware of the duck in fog’.” Council Tax is almost due, which seriously worried me, until I remembered who operates it. I was on talking to my mate over a walkie talkie when I asked him “Are you thinking what I’m thinking?” He replied, “I think we’re on the same wavelength here.”

round-up by stuart renton

Celebrity Big Brother is back this week and in homage to the “genius” of some of this year’s contestants, you may only read this column if you can point to North America on a map. That’s what zelebrity and witless wonder Kirk Norcross failed to do in his first challenge. The guy’s so brainless that he cannot point to the third largest continent on the planet - something a six year old could do with ease but utterly flummoxed our Essex Airhead. Oh, you say, it’s easy to forget stuff you learned at school, but here’s a newsflash: it’s that huge bit of land to the left of the UK on a map – it’s impossible to get wrong! It seems that we rejoice in stupidity, declaring it cute or adorable, yet Kirk Norcross continues to blight our television screens in the same vein as Amy Childs (and Kerry Katona). What can that ultra vacuous zelebrity actually teach any of us? Aside from her massive (fake) knockers, what else does she have to offer other than being a sample of the world’s most stupid people? Sure, she might be lovely, but so are bacteria, and you can’t have a conversation with them either. The Only Way is Essex is a breeding ground for the criminally stupid where a negative IQ test is required just to get on the show! Amy Childs’ IQ is slightly less than her two greatest assets, but that’s still one up on Kirk Norcross and his “towering” intellect. And it’s the same with the rest of the recent raft of “popular” reality shows: TOWIE, Desperate Scousewives and Geordie Shore, all reward and promote stupidity as though ignorance is a quality to be admired: partying, drinking, and enjoying an unhealthy sex life are regarded as positive traits. These plastic people are the new role models for the next generation and it’s a tragic shame that more emphasis isn’t placed on education and generally bettering yourself rather than smoking, swearing, and sha… oh, you get the idea. Back to poor hapless Kirk, who will spend his life relying on cute expressions and comedy banter to get what he wants. His father, the ultra-rich, Mick Norcross, must be oh so happy to know his son can barely walk and touch his nose at the same time. You’ve done a corking job there, mate, well done raising that vapid amoeba! Ultimately, if we continue to reward such ludicrous levels of stupidity then we are going to create a generation of utterly docile offspring, and, let’s face it, one Kirk Norcross is more than enough. We certainly don’t need a bunch of carbon copies walking the earth. And struggling to chew gum at the same time!

ELVIS IN CONCERT

In celebration of ‘the King’s’ 77th year “Elvis Presley in Concert” featuring members of the original TCB Band and Singers with a Full Orchestra under the direction of Joe Guercio are coming “One More Time” to the UK in 2012! The show will stop off at the Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield on Friday 9th March 2012. Elvis Presley performs a full 2 hour concert including his greatest hits and performances!

Using state-of-the-art video screens, members of the original TCB Band, singers and a 16-piece orchestra perform live in sync with Elvis. All music heard in the concert production is performed live.

HERMANʼS HERMITS

The mid-60’s music scene was dominated by British Groups, three of which became household names – The Beatles – The Rolling Stones and …..Herman’s Hermits, who are one of the most successful groups throughout the world. From their beginning in Manchester, England on April 1st 1964, the band has chalked up over 23 top twenty single records 10 hit albums, 3 major movies and countless television shows and concert tours all over the world – up to date they have total record sales of over 75 million. Since 1971 and the departure of Peter Noone to pursue a solo career, the group has never stopped. Original member, Barry (The Bean) Whitwam, has guided the group from strength to strength into one of the hardest working bands in the business – they still average more then 200 one night stands per year – and reckon they maintain their stamina by having an amazing sense of humour. Their touring schedule takes them to Germany, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, the Scandinavian countries, Japan, USA , Canada Australia and new Zealand on a regular basis and still find time to perform in their home country the United Kingdom, packing in the audiences at every venue and delighting them with their solid musicianship, vocal ability and dynamic stage presence. The ‘Golden Oldies’ still make up a large part of their show – much to the enjoyment of their fans, who can resist singing along to Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Silhouettes, Dandy, Can’t You Hear My Heart Beat, There’s A Kind Of Hush, No Milk Today, Something Is Happening, Sunshine Girl, Henry V111, and many more too numerous to mention. From the Sixties, through to the 21st century HERMAN’S HERMITS are still INTO SOMETHING GOOD. Herman’s Hermits are appearing at Rotherham Civic Theatre on Saturday 4th February. The show commences @ 7.30pm & tickets are available from the box office on 01709-823621 or online @ www. rotherham.gov.uk/theatres

SEARCH FOR YOUNG THEATRE TALENT

Youth Music Theatre UK is once again launching a nationwide search for the best actors, singers, dancers, musicians and stage managers to join their company in 2012. Aspiring young performers can book their place for YMT’s audition and workshop sessions in Sheffield by logging on to www.youthmusictheatreuk.org. They’ll be at the Sheffield Lyceum on 14 January 2012 and would love to see you there from 12:15 to 14:45 or from 15:45 – 18:15. Youth Music Theatre UK is the country’s national company for music theatre for young people, offering top quality training and mentoring as well as a proven way for young people to enter the creative industries – whether as a performer, musician, stagehand or administrator. Follow in the footsteps of recent graduates including chart topping Ed Sheeran and TV and theatre star Lauren Samuels! As patron and ‘Our Family’ Star Zoe Wanamaker says ‘YMT is an organisation that really changes lives’. Auditions will take the form of an exclusive workshop for all participants so take advantage of this rare chance to be tutored by some of the leading players in British Theatre. The workshop/auditions are a two and a half hour session of dance/drama/singing workshops led by a professional director, choreographer and musical director. They’re definitely not the sort of scary audition you might have seen on TV talent shows – the team will lead a series of practical and fun activities to help you make the most of your time, and to show the team exactly what your skills are. After auditions have been held across the whole of the country, YMT allocate the most successful into one of seven new productions across the UK. Around 250 of the most talented are selected. Successful auditionees get the chance to work with some of the UK’s leading professional directors, composers and choreographers to stage full scale productions at some of the country’s most respected theatres and arts festivals. You’ll learn new skills, make new friends and take your first steps on a career in the performing arts. YMT workshops and courses are fee-paying. Funding for taking part in a Summer Production is split 50/50 – 50% of the fees are subsidised by YMT through donations from generous donors, trusts, foundations and grants. Students have found some amazing ways to fundraise in the past – including 24 hour dancing across the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, organising local cabarets and gala nights and a wacky sponsored events. The experience you will gain and the contacts you’ll make could prove invaluable – many of YMT’s alumni have gone on to drama school and to the professional stage including Ed Sheeran, whose debut single The A Team just reached number 3 in the charts, Lauren Samuels, from BBC TV’s ‘Over the Rainbow’ and a recent ‘Sandy’ in the West End production of “Grease”, Scott Haining, ‘Nate’ in “Waterloo Road”, Jos Slovick and Jamie Muscato who both starred in the original London cast of “Spring Awakening” and Antony Hansen from “Wicked”. Most recently Freya Wilson & Isaiah Michalski have enjoyed success in hit films “The Kings Speech” & “Anonymous” respectively.

In Festival Mood for Charity! From 12th to 15th January the Corner Pin hold its Annual Beer Festival at its home in St Sepulchre Gate, Doncaster – and the beneficiary from the event will be Kidscan. Members of CAMRA will be in attendance on Saturday night in support of the festival and charity, and hosts Dave and Ruth are hoping to add significantly to the impressive £1350 already raised by the regulars with the assistance of Bob from Next Security. Fundraising events on the day will include a raffle for a Gallon of Ale, and the Corner Pin is donating all proceeds from the sale of pie & peas throughout the festival. There is an impressive line-up of guest beers for those real ale afficianados amongst you – including four brews from great Heck Brewery, and a further five from Muirhouse Brewery – so there will be plenty to tickle the taste buds! Do try to call in and support this worthy cause – Chris Swinton from Kidscan will be calling in later this month to collect a cheque from Ruth – and they are hoping to top £2000 – which would be a great achievement!

I breathe in peace, it fills me Serenity wash over me’ Weekly Psychic Article by Psychic Glynis

Happy New Year Another year has passed! I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year. At the start of a year people take time to reflect and many express regret about something that they have not achieved. I ask ‘what’s stopping you this year?’ I know there are reasons that can prevent us from fulfilling our dreams but take heart I have a few tips that might help. However, you must have faith in what I say and faith in yourself in order for these methods to work.

Law of Attraction The Law of Attraction is a belief that ‘like attracts like’, nothing can come into your experience unless you summon it through persistent thoughts.Think about this, when you feel bad you think bad things. When you feel good, good things often happen. Your thoughts determine your frequency and your feelings tell you immediately what frequency you are on. When you feel bad you are on a frequency that draws bad things towards you. When you are feeling good you feel powerful.

BESSEMER IS LICENSEES URGE TO USE PASS CARDS THE DEFINITELY ʻWHERE The Government should make it compulsory for licensees to accept the Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS) cards as a valid form of identification – that’s according to a new petition supported by MPs. The Home Office states that licensees can decide for themselves whether to accept PASS cards such as CitizenCard, Young Scot and Validate. The Early Day Motion , which has been tabled by Lib Dem MP

John Thurso, said: “Although the police, trading standards and retail organisations support PASS, the Home Office states that licensees can decide for themselves whether to accept PASS cards; and calls on the Government to bring forward proposals to oblige licensees to recognise PASS cards alongside photo card driving licences as valid identification.” In November last year, CitizenCard chief executive Andrew Chevis said that PASS

could be “pointless” if the Home Office does not do more to force licensees and doorstaff to accept accredited cards. He set up an e-petition calling for the Government to make it compulsory for all licensees to accept PASS cards. So far, it has 502 signatures, and will need 100,000 for the topic to be discussed in Parliament. The petition can be found at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/ petitions/22624

OF THE WALK ON BY FLYING A FLAG TO BECOME EASIER VOICE NIGHTINGALE Flying flags will be made easier under government plans to free pubs from the need to seek council permission. Proposals set out by the Government will allow a much wider range of flags to be flown without the need for planning permission. Under current planning rules, only a select few flags are allowed to be flown without permission from town hall officials. This can cost pubs up to £335. Under the new rules, people will be able to fly a much wider range of flags including the flags of football and cricket clubs or town and village flags.

The coalition Government will also make it easier for communities wanting to celebrate the contribution of the armed forces by easing rules on flying local regimental flags. Other local flags, and projects like environmental awards, could also all be freed up from existing bureaucratic restrictions. Eric Pickles, the communities secretary, said: “If people want to celebrate something that is important to them by flying a flag they should be able to do so without having to fill in forms or paying town hall officials for the privilege. We will make it easier for people to celebrate their

allegiance to a cause, a county or a local organisation if they choose to do so.” Currently the only flags allowed to be flown without consent are any country’s national flag; the European Union; the United Nations; the flag of the Commonwealth; the flag of any English county; and the flag of a patron saint - which can be displayed only in the county with which the saint is associated. Flags are deemed to be advertisements and their display is controlled by the Town and Country Planning Regulations 2007.

MAGIC AM by Trevor Thomas

It was my pleasure last week to meet the very inspirational Yorkshire fundraiser Mike Tomlinson, who since he lost his wife Jane to cancer in 2007 has carried on her valuable work to try and raise £2m for various childrens and cancer charities. The latest event incorporates a choice of three different distant walks in the High Peak. A group of us will be walking either 5, 12 or 22 miles around Castleton, Edale, the Hope Valley, and the beautiful countryside that includes Mam Torr and Jacob’s Ladder. It marks the 80th anniversary of the trespass of Kinder Scout by a group of walkers from Sheffield and Manchester that led to large areas of land being opened up and the formation of the Peak District National Park. It’s sure to be a good day no matter what the forecast holds. I’ll be there with Mike and I’d love you to come and get involved. Why not come and join us for a lovely spring walk and raise money for needy children across South Yorkshire with our charity Cash for Kids on Sunday 29th April. To register you can call the team on 0114 209 1100 or just keep listening for details on Magic AM.

ʻDRYʼ CLUBS ARE THERE ANY LEFT? CLUBHISTORIANS.CO.UK by Ruth Cherrington

I wonder which club was the most recent to add a bar to the list of its facilities? A few clubs were committed to remaining teetotal right up until the modern era whilst many early clubs quickly took up the chance of supplying beer and, later on, other forms of alcohol to their members. Whilst the original ideal of the Reverend Henry Solly was for working men’s clubs to be free of the ‘demon drink’, most members around the country wanted to make up their own minds on this issue with the vote usually going in favour of having alcohol. But sometimes the founders of clubs had their hands tied especially if they relied on funding from wealthy, benevolent but temperance-inclined patrons. I recently read a short history of a club local to me in London that didn’t acquire a bar until 1949 even though it was set up in the early part of the century. Wood Green Social Club began life as the Southgate and Wood Green Labour Club with strong links with the local Labour Party and trade unions. Wood Green was and still is a transport hub with several rail stations nearby as well as the underground, so had close ties with the NUR and ASLEF. Many committed local activists wanted a base for political meetings as well as a recreational space. A committee was formed in 1910 with the aim of establishing such a club that would be modelled on existing ones set up during the late 19th century. There were already around 160 clubs in London when the Wood Green committee began their quest. They registered under the Industrial and Provident Societies in 1920 before they even had proper premises. They were divided, however, about whether or not it should sell beer once founded. In the early 20s, suitable premises were foundStirling House on the corner of White Hart Lane but the price tag of £1,750 was beyond their means. They were fortunate enough to have a wealthy supporter in the form of local newspaper proprietor William Joseph Neal, editor of Wood Green’s Sentinel and Weekly Herald. He would donate the required money but with a condition- that the club did not sell alcohol as he was old-school teetotalling, democratic, Christian socialist. The club remained ‘dry’ until 1949 when the first bar was put in after his widow’s share in the club had been bought out. The members, and the committee, were ready for that step and for their independence from the well-meaning patron’s family. Thanks to Michael Kent’s ‘Forward Together’ history of Wood Green Social club. Catch Ruth Wednesday 11th February on BBC4’s Timeshift documentary, 9pm, talking about clubs. Or on BBC iplayer.

Fri: Nicola warns Ashley that it is time to forgive and forget if he is to win Laurel back. Gennie is embarrassed when Nikhil is ready to move in. Hazel is hopeful as Aaron seems excited by her plans. Eastenders Mon: Ricky resolves to prove his love for Bianca by planning a romantic meal for the two of them, but will it be enough to convince her? When Tanya and Max confront Lauren about her recent drunken behaviour, the truth about the extent of

her antics becomes clear. However, they are forced to realise that they may be a part of Laurenʼs problems when they visit a doctor. Tues: DCI Marsden opens up an old investigation and tries to manipulate Ben to get what she wants. Jane throws a fundraising event at The Vic, which leads to an unexpected offer. Thurs: Ben seethes with jealousy as Phil and Jay bond over their new venture. Fed up of always being the outcast, will this push him to do something he may regret? Masood reveals some new facts about Yusef to the family, which put a stop to any healing and reconciling that has been done. Fri: At the Butchersʼ Bianca starts to feel the pressure of family life, and is furious to discover that Liam has been truanting from school. However, she is pleasantly surprised to discover what he has been up to. Home & Away Mon: Liam wakes from his coma, to a pack of lies about the accident that put him in hospital. Heath takes Biancaʼs rejection badly. Miles and Leah set off together to find VJ. Tues: Bianca tries to keep Charlieʼs lie going by

assuring Liam it was Heath who was driving the other car. Brax plants the stolen evidence in the home of a drug runner who is later caught - will that get him, Charlie and Watson off the hook? Wed: Charlie, cleared of stealing the evidence, decides she still wants to quit the police and sort her life out. She gives Brax an ultimatum - he must choose between her and the River Boys. Thurs: Stu reacts to being dumped by stealing Xavierʼs car, then forcing Sasha into reconsidering when he takes her on a wild drive. Dex ends up in hot water when April catches him kissing someone else at the Surf Club. Fri: Dex has to face the music the morning after the night before, but April wants nothing to do with him. Indi makes a good impression on her first day as an intern with Dennis by modelling a swimsuit for a photo shoot, which upsets Romeo. Neighbours Mon: Noah suspects Kate is pulling the strings when Sophie drops out of the band, and goes to strange lengths to discover her feelings. Lucas and Emilia get themselves in a passionate tangle on Toadieʼs couch.

23

Tues: Sophie brings Noahʼs behaviour to the attention of the new headmistress, Priya Kapoor, and she manages to get the truth out of him. But what will be the fallout for Kate? Wed: When Priya confronts Kate, she accuses her sister of lying. When Andrew says that there is no video evidence of the kiss, the fallout pushes the sisters so far apart that Kate wonders if she will ever see Sophie again. Thurs: Susan becomes convinced that there is something going on between Jade and Karl, and her feelings of jealousy make her investigate further. Karl becomes aware of this, and starts to harbour hopes of a reconciliation. After talking to Chris, Summer comes clean to Andrew, but does not get the reaction she was expecting. Fri: Sophie finds herself becoming more and more ostracised, and when her last ally, Paul, appears to lend his support to Kate she wonders where to turn. When Jade passes on an expensive pair of earrings that Malcolm bought her, Susan puts two and two together and tells Karl she thinks they are having an affair.

Angler’s Corner Racing Form by Clint Walker

Happy New Year!!! My first column of 2012, and one in which I should really tell you what me resolutions/targets/hopes are for this year. Well, there aren’t any; I don’t bother resolutions when it comes to angling, and I’m happy to net whatever comes my way, so we’ll just have to see! I do however, wish you all the best with your plans. My season has already begun with an absolute disaster, the kind of day where it would have made far more sense to stay in bed, and, the more I think about it, the more I think I will feature on a hidden camera show sometime soon......My day started with the usual preparation, but more importantly, I’d kept an eye on the EA website to check the river levels at my chosen venue some 30 miles away. The site said the river would be fishable, so I set off; my first issue was a little one, I purchased carbonated water instead of still from the local shop enroute; I know it’s not really a huge error, but it was certainly a precursor for the rest of the day! Despite what the site said, when I arrived, the river was actually in flood and covered the surrounding fields to a depth of around two feet, rendering fishing safely impossible, so it was a further 15 miles to try and find a spot to drop a line into. Reaching my second likely spot, I pulled in and I got my quiver out of the van before leaning it against the front window, wedged by the wing mirror; the wind instantly caught it and it went crashing to the deck! Fearful of damage, a quick inspection revealed I’d smashed a butt ring to pieces, even the ceramic insert had shattered! This left me with just one rod, so a lengthy trudge across sodden fields got to me to my chosen spot where I proceeded to set up. Having rigged with a 5oz feeder, I then found out I’d left my bait back in the van, so made the return trek cross the fields to fetch it..... Casting out into the flow, my feeder gently bounced around until it went solid; I’d intended to leave for five minutes before recasting, but on the retrieve, found it was snagged solid. A fruitless battle ended with me pulling for a break....Second cast, a small roach snaffled at the net by a mid double pike which then dived under the same snag before smashing me up for a second time......time to admit defeat and go home...... I packed and got in the van. Driving up the lane past the hedge cutting tractor, I then found I’d got a puncture! Crouching in the rain to change the wheel, I didn’t think it could get any worse....wrong; almost home and paused on an uphill junction, the old dear in front stalled her car and rolled back in to the front of mine!!!! I give up....... Hope your 2012 got off to a better start!!!

by Timelord

With eight cracking races to go at this Saturday we are in for a feast of NH action as the preparations begin in earnest towards the Cheltenham Festival in March. Make no mistake there will be plenty of clues to the Festival winners on offer in the next few weeks and it usually pays to play close attention to these preparatory meetings, both here and in Ireland. Kempton: 2.15 Williamhill.com Novices’ Handicap Chase, Class 4, 3 miles: Donald McCain’s Lively Baron gets the nod ahead of Canni Thinkaar, Very Stylish, Downward Spiral and Lexicon Lad with Ballyoliver, Reblis, Only Vintage and Quobilai flying the flag for the “as yet unexposed” brigade. 2.50 William Hill LanzaroteHurdle Handicap, Class 2, 2 miles 5 furlongs: Aachen ran really well at Bangor last time out in a fast time behind Dais Return - a race that I think could work out well. However he has an entry also for the 2.30 at Warwick and so is a doubtful starter here. However he is worthy of respect in whichever race he goes for so keep an eye out for his final declaration. In what looks to be an ultra competitive event I am siding with Philip Hobbs’ Featherbed Lane who won a not too dissimilar race by 14 lengths last time out and looks to be on the upgrade. Nicky Henderson’s Busker Royal may be the one that gives the selection most to do although there are several last time out winners in the field that look dangerous also. 3.20 William Hill – Home of Betting Handicap Chase, 2 miles 4½ furlongs, Class 3: In the hope that this contest and track will suit him better than those he has contested previously this year I am selecting Charlie Mann’s Fine Parchment although he has to overcome some poor form this term. If he fails to line up it could be that Busy Isit will be the one that benefits as he has now won his last four starts and has a C&D victory in the locker to boot. Others that could prove dangerous are: Cruchain, Fix the Rib, Only Vintage, State Benefit and Problema Tic. 3.50 Best Odds Guaranteed with Williamhill. com Mobile Handicap Hurdle, Class 3 , (4yo+ rated 0-135), 2 miles: Nicky Henderson’s entry A Media Luz merits the selection in a tight handicap. If his performance behind Brampour at Ascot in October is anything to go by he could have this lot on the stretch some way from home. Zafranagar and Zanir look to head the opposition with Sir Tantallus Hawk, Devil To Pay, Xenophon, Drumshambo, J’Adhere, Lucaindubai, Orzare and Dream Esteem also holding sound chances.

2.30 Pertemps Handicap Hurdle (Qualifier), Class 2, 3 miles 1 furlong: Ongenstown Lad is the selection. He ran right away from his opposition at Cheltenham in October and has been given a break since. However he looked well ahead of the handicapper that day and could sluice in again here. If he fails to show up for any reason then Aachen would be the reserve choice in the hope that he lines up here and not at Kempton. It probably would not

303 PRINCE OF WALES ROAD, SHEFFIELD, S2 1FH Open Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri & Sat 7.30am - 4pm. Open Wed 7.30am - 1pm.

3.05 Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle, Grade 2, Class 1, 5yo+, 2 miles 5 furlongs: Another very competitive event could go to Ian Williams’ Barbatos who won last time out at Cheltenham where he beat Batonnier by 7 lengths. There are plenty of dangers in the field headed by multiple winners Castle Conflict, Cotton Mill, Gullinbursti and Highland Lodge. Further dangers lurk in the shape of Fintan, Hit the Headlines, Jumps Road, Lady Kathleen, Layla’s Dancer and Sivola de Sivola so a decent price will be needed to match the risk posed. 3.40 Betfred Classic Chase (Handicap), Grade 3, Class 1, 3 miles 5 furlongs: I fancy that this marathon could fall to Charlie Mann’s Bench Warrent who did the best performance last time out in my book when finishing fourth to Le Beau Bai in the Welsh National. That was over a similar distance on testing ground at Chepstow so this trip, course and ground should hold no terrors for him. His principal danger may come from Miko de Beauchene who has my top speed rating by far but has to recapture his form of a couple of years ago to figure. However his trainer is Venetia Williams whose horse are running far better of late than when he last ran at Haydock before Christmas. Faasel is another to have a sound enough chance and he has run quite well since moving to David Pipe. Blazing Bailey, Hello Bud, Hey Big Spender, Key Cutter, Leading Contender, Morning Moment, and Strongbows Legend can all help to ensure that this is a true grind for thorough staying chasers. Selection summary: Kempton: 2.15 Lively Baron 2.50 Featherbed Lane 3.20 Fine Parchment 3.50 A Media Luz Warwick: 2.00 Moon over Miami 2.30 Ongenstown Lad 3.05 Barbatos 3.25 Bench Warrent Good Luck! Last week’s results: No great shakes again last week, however the absence of two initial selections at Wincanton secured a small profit as the eventual reserve selection in the 2.50, Consigliere, won at 10/1 providing 5 point profit to one point level stakes from the six selected races.

Local Football by Michael Clarke County Senior League

League Cup The first interesting result of 2012 came in the game between Aqua Force Barnsley and Frecheville. Both are in the First Division, with Frecheville sitting in an impressive second place, but this was not to be their day and they were downed 2-0. The goals came from John Smith and Paul Epplestone. The win is no shock really, as Aqua Force are unbeaten in the league since mid-September. The only Premier Division sides left in the League Cup before Saturday were Wombwell Main and Penistone Church. Penistone, the current Premier Division leaders, won the game by four-goals-to-two. Wickersley were also 4-2 winners, they saw-off Second Division leaders Athersley Recreation Reserves at Wickersley School. Two goals from Joe Hall inspired Thorpe Hesley to a 3-1 win over Bramley Sunnyside. Carl Etherton was also on the score-sheet for Thorpe Hesley. There was also one Rosehill Association Cup match. This took place at the Transport Ground, where Second Division Gleadless hosted Kirkburton. Kirkburton just edged the game 1-0. Premier Division Athersley Recreation went joint top of the Premier Division, after they comfortably beat High Green Villa 3-0. The goals came from Jack Briscoe, Chris Boreham and Anthony Smith. Stocksbridge Park Steels Reserves also had the chance to go top outright, but were again the subject of a 0-0 draw, their third in succession in the league. An amazing seventh straight shut-out for Stocksbridge, sees them also joint top on 32 points, but down a place in third. Swallownest Miners Welfare sit in fourth place after the 3-2 defeat of Handsworth Reserves. Swallownest were served well by in-form Ross Edwards, who produced a man of the match performance for the hosts. Sheffield Reserves climbed off the bottom of the Premier Division with a 2-0 win over Everest FC. The goals came from Keith Cronin and Nicholas Haywood. Sheffield beat Hallam reserves in their last league match and will hope these results will kick-start their season. Hallam Reserves dropped to the bottom of the table on goal difference, after they were beat 1-0 by Millmoor Juniors at Sandygate. Richard Pierpoint decided the match with a superb strike from twenty yards, which flew into the top corner. South Kirkby Colliery won their first league match in five, when they beat Davy FC 3-0 at Millar’s Walk. The first goal came from a Ben Moore penalty. Ross Johnson added the other two goals. Division One With the top two not playing in Division One, Penistone Church Reserves had the chance to gain some ground on the leaders. And that they did, as they strolled to the 6-0 defeat of struggling Caribbean Sports. Tim Council scored an extraordinary four goals, with Callum Lee and Daniel Green also on the score-sheet. Fourth placed Swinton Station Athletic were held to an exciting 2-2 draw by lowly Oughtibridge WMSC. Goals from Todd Bailey and Josh Ashton were enough to give Worksop Parramore a 2-1 win over mid-table Silkstone United. Worsbrough Bridge Reserves put in one of the performances of the day, as they beat Sheffield Athletic 4-1 away from home. It is Worsbrough’s first away win since the clocks went back. Division Two Clowne Villa ended De La Salle’s quiet resurgence, with a massive 5-0 away win. De La Salle, although sitting second bottom, were three games unbeaten going into the game. Boynton Sports moved into third place with a 3-1 away win over Millmoor Juniors. Adrian Tomlin, Kevin Allen and debutant Stacy Sharif were the goalscorers for Boynton. Kane Tomlinson grabbed the reply for Millmoor. Sheffield Bankers made it four wins out of five in the league, when they beat Sheffield Lane Top 3-1 at Davy Sports Club. Two of the Bankers’ goals came from Scott Dinnington, with the other from Mike Russell. Meadowhall Sunday League Tinsley Trophy Round One There was just one game in the Tinsley Trophy. This came at Olive Grove, where Heeley FC saw off Mosborough U21 4-0. Twenty One year old Richard Mason grabbed a brace for Heeley. Premier Division High Noon moved joint top of the Premier Division after they beat Sharrow United 3-2. The vital goals for High Noon came from Lanzel Reid, Alex Rippon and Chris Barnes. Third placed Crookes played out a hardfought 1-1 draw with Greenhill White Hart at Warminster Road. The result leaves Crookes five point back from the lead. Last years’ Champions Royal Earl returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over the Packhorse Inn. Scott Bates and Daniel Cardwell were on the score-sheet for the Royal Earl. A single goal from Paul Turner gave the Handsworth Turf Tavern an excellent 1-0 away win over Mosborough A. Division One The game of the day in Division One came at Warminster Road, where the Intake Ball Inn and the Arbourthorne EA B shared nine goals. Liam Cartledge grabbed four of them for himself to swing the game in the Arbourthorne’s favour. His goals were complimented one from Robert Aspinall and another from Steven Brammer to give the Arbourthorne a 6-3 win and a much-needed three points. Leaders Arundel consolidated their position with a hardfought 2-1 away win over the Jack-in-a-Box. However, they do not have much room to breathe as the Brunsmeer Abbey also won. A double from Matthew Clarke inspred them to a 4-1 win over HSBC and keep them on twenty points with the Arundel. Division Two Bottom side Ridgeway Athletic saw themselves unlucky, as they were downed 2-1 by promotion chasing Penistone Church. Gareth Brown and Scott Briggs grabbed the winning goals for Penistone. Winn Gardens sit just ahead of Penistone on goal difference, after their 3-0 defeat of Mosborough B at Ferrars Road. Christian Gass was in impressive form scoring twice for Winn Gardens. Two goals from Jordan Wrigley gave Hackenthorpe Villa a 2-0 win over Norton Oaks A. The win moves Hackenthorpe into a nice mid-table position. U21 Division Norton Oaks U21 just edged an exciting encounter with Throstles U21 at Davy Sports Club. Connor Merrison scored twice for Norton, as did Ryan Bates for the Throstles.

This is the time when

ROVERS DUMPED OUT OF THE CUP MATCH REPORT www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk

You knew it was the F.A. Cup 3rd Round because there were grey skies above and it was cold. The Rovers made four changes to the starting line-up, In came Habib Beye after serving a suspension, Adam Lockwood, Giles Barnes and Mamadou Bagayoko. Herita Ilunga had returned to West Ham United, George Friend was injured, Simon Gillett was on the bench and Billy Sharp was also out. The County set the game in motion but the Rovers soon gained possession and had a majority of the same for the first ten minutes, with just a shot by Bennett from 20yards that had Nelson going down to his right to gather. The visitors then got going and Lee Hughes got down to the right byline before crossing low to the middle where Hawley got in front of Hird but could only stab wide. minutes later they won a corner when Hawley had his shot deflected wide but Button punched it away. Then Kelly crossed from the right touchline but Lee Hughes headed wide. Continuing to have the better of possession Judge fired wide from 25yards and followed this on the half hour by hitting a good low shot from a similar distance that had Button diving to push away. The Rovers had spasmodic attacks during this time but two minutes later Barnes brought a save from Nelson. However, in the 37th minute, the County were awarded a free kick on their right, which was placed to the far post where J HUGHES took advantage of some hesitation by the Rovers defenders to fire past Button and into the far corner of the net. This appeared to nudge the Rovers into action and get back into the game but the scoreline remained at one goal up to the visitors when the referee blew for the break. The Rovers went straight on to the attack from the kick off, with the first crack at goal coming in the 48th minute when Bennett hit a swerving drive from 25 yards that Nelson could only beat away. But the County began to get into the game and won a corner in the 57th minute. They were proving to be a difficult team to handle for the Rovers, who introduced Oster into the game a minute later. In the 65th minute, with the Rovers pressing again,

we like to get our second year players out to clubs and give them some exposure to senior football. It gets them ruffed up a bit and hopefully they come back stronger.” Sarll was able to draw on his own experiences of the game, and believes first-team football provides a learning curve that can’t be gained in youth team action. “Everyone needs that exposure, and even if the lads are at different levels it’s important they see that side of the game, and realise the consequences of their actions in a match. I played non-league and I know how I felt when youth team players came in and messed up our game, but it’s vitally important for their progress.” The full interview with Darren will be in this week’s copy of The Millers, as part of his youth team round-up, available around the ground for just £2.50.

Coppinger put a great cross from the left touchline to the far post where Hayter couldn’t get a foot to it and Nelson, seeing it at the last second, managed to push it out for a corner. However, in the 69th minute, Sheehan attacked from the left, got into the penalty area and was barged over by Bennett. Penalty said the referee and J HUGHES duly stepped up and planted to Button’s left as he went right. In the 76th minute a good build-up by the Rovers led to Hayter laying the ball back for Bennett in the penalty area but he curled a left foot effort wide of the post. Coppinger had a good shot saved and Stock put wide as the Rovers tried to hit back. But the County were equal to the task of defending and going on to the attack. Harley put well wide from 35 yards and a corner came to nothing but the Rovers were being denied the ball. As the last five minutes of normal time came up the Rovers went on all-out attack. Stock put wide, successive corners came to nothing and in five minutes of added time Woods put wide from just of the area and O’Connor headed wide from a corner. The referee’s whistle went on a Notts County victory so that all that’s left for the Rovers is the battle to get out of the relegation zone.

Ben Bennett Jnr, a family business going back 128 years, have had a long association with the club and it’s fitting that they should put their name to the family stand. Speaking on the day that the announcement was made, Mr. Bennett spoke of the immense pride at being part of the new stadium. “I am very proud and delighted to be sponsoring the new family stand,” he said. “I watched my first Millers match on Boxing Day 1950 so I have been a supporter of the club for 61 years now. It was very important to me that we sponsored the family stand because my wife, son, daughter and my grandchildren all support the club and my eldest grandchild follows the club all around the country. “I am thrilled to bits to see the club move into the new stadium and I am looking forward to spending many happy hours watching the club.”

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY NEWS 2011/12 LATE OʼGRADY STRIKE SENDS OWLS THROUGH MATCH REPORT www.swfc.co.uk

Chris O’Grady scored a late winner to send Wednesday into round four of the FA Cup at the expense of Championship side West Ham. With the third round tie seemingly heading for a replay, O’Grady struck in front of the Kop to seal the Owls’ passage. There were chances at either end, the best of which was Sam Baldock’s penalty for the Hammers just after half time but Nicky Weaver produced a marvellous diving save to deny the former MK Dons striker. Promotion remains the priority for both teams but still Wednesday and West Ham served up an entertaining cup clash with unfamiliar line-ups. Sam Allardyce made numerous changes for the capital club, while Gary Megson was forced into a reshuffle with Ben Marshall unable to play under the terms of his loan agreement with parent club Stoke. That meant a start on the left of midfield for Julian Bennett and a rare berth up front for Jermaine Johnson alongside O’Grady. The Hammers asked the first question early in the opening period when Henri Lansbury found space down the left side of the penalty area and his cross was deflected on to the top of the bar by Jon Otsemobor. Wednesday responded with James Tavernier breaking free from the engine room only to drag a low effort past Ruud Boffin and the far post. The best chance of the half, though, fell to the Owls on the 20-minute mark. O’Grady sent Jermaine Johnson scampering in on goal with a delightful slide rule pass but the Jamaican

international’s controlled finished rolled agonisingly past the upright. Danny Batth, who scored his maiden goal for the Owls over the festive period, almost doubled his tally ten minutes before the break with a bullet header that whistled wide from Bennett’s long throw. Then Jack Collinson might have done better for the Londoners with a close range header that went high and wide after good wing work from Freddie Sears. Three minutes after half time, the Hammers should have taken the lead - and would but for some superb goalkeeping from Weaver. Reda Johnson was adjudged to have tripped Winston Reid in the box and the referee pointed to the spot. Baldock’s penalty was driven low and hard but Weaver responded with a topclass save to keep the visitors out. The Owls introduced Clinton Morrison on the hour and the striker teed up O’Grady within a few minutes of his arrival, forcing Boffin into a diving save to avert the danger. Play soon went back to the other end and Baldock was unlucky once more, this time driving a fierce shot beyond Weaver that smacked against the far post. With a replay far from ideal, both sides pushed forward for a winner and it was Wednesday - and O’Grady - that took the plaudits.The striker picked up possession down the right channel on 88 minutes and turned to drill an accurate shot past Boffin to send the Owls into the next round. Wednesday: Weaver, Otsemobor, R Jones, Batth, R Johnson (Morrison 59), Bennett (Lowe 83), Semedo, Lines, J Johnson, Tavernier (D Jones 72), O’Grady Unused substitutes: Bywater, Beevers, Palmer, Prutton West Ham: Boffin, Reid, McCartney, Baldock, Collison (Hall 72), Carew (Nouble 64), O’Brien, Sears, Lansbury, O’Neil, Potts Unused substitutes: Green, Tomkins, Bouba Diop, Montenegro, Lee

BLACKPOOL DATE CONFIRMED SWFC NEWS www.swfc.co.uk

Sheffield Wednesday can confirm details of the forthcoming FA Cup tie against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road. The fourth round outing will take place on Saturday 28 January, kick off at 3.00pm. Ticket prices have been confirmed as £10 for adults and £5 for children and the sale dates will be announced in due course. The Owls’ League 1 clash against MK Dons at Stadium:mk, which was set for the same day, will be rescheduled with the new date to be announced shortly at swfc.co.uk.

PERFORMANCE PLEASES MEGSON GAFFERS REACTION www.swfc.co.uk

Gary Megson was pleased with the Owls’ performance and result as Wednesday advanced into round four of the FA Cup at the expense of West Ham. Chris O’Grady’s late strike ensured victory for the home side, who turned in a resolute performance against the Londoners. Keeper Nicky Weaver launched the platform for success with a superb second half penalty save from Sam Baldock. Megson said: “I thought it was a good performance. Not the best we have played this season but still a good performance. “Sam made a few changes but West Ham have quality players so we did really well to win the game and winning is what matters. “Nicky Weaver produced a great save from the penalty but I’m not sure it was a penalty in the first place, I will have to look at that one again. “But Nicky has done really well. We’re fortunate that we have some really good goalkeepers at the club and it’s no reflection on Stephen Bywater, he just came to the end of his loan spell.” Megson was also pleased for match winner O’Grady, who pounced at the last to prevent a replay that would hardly have suited either side. He added: “I thought Chris was terrific today. I’ve been really pleased with his performances recently, he just needed a goal and today he got it.” The Owls travel to Championship side Blackpool in round four but Megson remains focused on the top of the table clash with Charlton in League 1 at Hillsborough on Saturday: “We’ll put the Blackpool game to bed until we play it because we have a big game coming up against Charlton next.”

SHEFFIELD UNITED NEWS 2011/12

UNITED PROGRESS INTO ROUND 2 MATCH REPORT www.sufc.co.uk

The Blades overcame non-league opposition on FA Cup third round day with the minimum of fuss at Bramall Lane. Chris Porter, Ched Evans and an own goal in the second half secured United’s passage to the fourth round. Lloyd Macklin netted a consolaton for Salisbury City. Wilson named a strong team to face the Blue Square South outfit, making just two changes from the XI that was beaten at Carlisle five days earlier. Ertl was brought in for his first start of the season and Williamson returned. Quinn missed out and Montgomery dropped to the bench, where he was joined by new permanent signing Williams and young winger Chapell. Salisbury boss Clarke named himself in his team. A minute’s applause for former loan defender Gary Ablett was staged before the action began and the Blades kicked towards the large contingent of fans who had made the trip up from Wiltshire. Ertl began at right-back and it was from his delivery that the home side first threatened - Flynn and Evans were involved before McDonald’s effort was blocked. On six minutes an Evans volley looked destined to open the scoring but his powerful effort struck Porter, who

couldn’t get out of the way, and then a long-range shot from Maguire flew over the crossbar. From Williamson’s corner, a Collins header was pushed away by goalkeeper Scott but the Blades grabbed the lead on 18 minutes. McDonald began the move, finding Williamson and the from the right he picked out PORTER, who had lost his marker and found the target, between the legs of Scott. Salisbury’s first effort followed United’s goal but a shot from player-manager Clarke was straight at Simonsen. Reid then shot over the crossbar, before the Blades began to push the visitors back once more. Flynn’s low shot was well saved by Scott, who, moments later, produced an acrobatic stop to deny Porter a second from a back post header. The visiting goalkeeper was being overworked but he was given a little respite before the break, even though United continued to ask questions. Evans fired a free-kick into the sidenetting and McDonald hammered over with his left foot after a run across the edge of the box. The final action of the half saw Williamson drill in a cross which Porter was eyeing up but a deflection off Giles resulted in the Blades striker lifting the ball over the top. Williamson was also involved in the early action of the second period, whipping in a couple of crosses and also picking up the first booking of the game, for a foul on Fitchett. The second half was just six minutes old when Wilson threw on strikers Cresswell and Beattie but Salisbury were appealing for a

penalty soon after when Giles clashed with Collins, but the referee waved play-on. The next action of referee Webb was to book Salisbury’s Webb for a foul on Beattie before the Blades doubled the advantage on the hour. It began with a Jean-Francois shot that was deflected but saved by Scott, but from the rebound EVANS diverted a shot by McDonald into the net at the Kop end. Moments later, after a double substitution by the visitors, United came close to a third but efforts by Evans, Beattie and Doyle - all in the same move - were all blocked! A third goal did arrive, however, on 72 minutes. Evans picked up the ball on the right and after slipping past Brett, the striker’s cross was deflected past Scott by an unfortunate WEBB at the near post. Evans and Ertl then had shots deflected wide as the Blades continued to pour forward and Doyle also headed over. Macklin fired over for Salisbury before boss Wilson gave a rare opportunity to 20-year winger Chapell, who replaced Williamson with 12 minutes to go. It was Salisbury substitute MACKLIN, though, who had the greater influence when he fired in a consolation, from the edge of the box, beating the outstretched right hand of Simonsen, right in front of the visiting supporters. The Blades, however, comfortably played out the final moments, plus the added time when Evans had another effort stopped by Scott, to ensure a place in the fourth round draw.

UNITED PROGRESS INTO ROUND 2 MATCH REPORT www.sufc.co.uk

Danny Wilson was delighted to see his Blades team rewarded with another home draw, following the victory over Salisbury City in the third round of the FA Cup sponsored by Budweiser. United will face either Wolverhampton Wanderers or Birmingham City at Bramall Lane in the fourth round. The two West Midlands teams will replay next Tuesday at Molineux after playing out a goal less draw at St Andrews on Saturday. “We have to be pleased with another home tie,” said boss Wilson. “Whoever we end up playing we know it will be a very difficult game. The fact that they have a replay to play gives us the opportunity to go and watch them, as we did with Salisbury when they beat Grimsby. “Wolves are Premier League side with all that brings and Birmingham City won last season’s League Cup final and, of course, have competed in Europe this season, so whoever it is it will be a great test but one we will really looking forward to and when the time comes will be really up for.”
