LOCAL TEAMS UNITE FOR EXTRA TIME CAMPAIGN M.V. MOBILITY

TOP Sheffield football stars Chris Morgan and Rob Jones are putting traditional club rivalries aside to back an appeal by a leading cancer charity to help thousands of families affected by the disease to spend more precious time together. The ‘Extra Time’ campaign is being launched to celebrate leap day (February 29th) by Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, which raises funds to support Weston Park Hospital, one of just four specialist cancer hospitals in England. ‘Extra Time’ stems from the idea that each leap year we all benefit from an ‘extra’ day. Thanks to

Weston Park Hospital, more cancer patients are being afforded extra quality time with their loved ones, due to the pioneering cancer research undertaken at the hospital and the provision of the highest possible levels of treatment and care. Extra time is a term used commonly in football, and as well as The Blades’ and The Owls’ captains, stars from Barnsley Football Cub, Rotherham United, Chesterfield Football Club and Doncaster Rovers are all backing the campaign. The appeal is asking people to sign up to become regular supporters of the charity

by donating each month through their bank account, helping in turn to give people living with cancer more precious time with their families. Chris Morgan, club captain of Sheffield United, said: “I’m supporting the campaign as a friend was diagnosed with cancer and had some of his treatment at Weston Park Hospital. “I became a patron of Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity last year so I know how important the work done at the hospital is in helping so many families in Sheffield and beyond who are affected by cancer.

“This is why I want to encourage as many people as possible to support the Extra Time campaign – so that patients now and in the future get as much extra quality time as possible to spend with their families.” Rob Jones, Club Captain of Sheffield Wednesday said: “In football I’ve

seen many times how going into extra time during a match makes a difference. For patients living with cancer and their families and friends extra time is of course infinitely more precious. And this is why I’m asking as many people as possible to support this appeal.”

Copley’s Column

The Sheffield derby game resulted in a narrow 1-0 win for the Owls over their bitter rivals, the Blades, watched by nearly forty six thousand fans at Hillsborough and by the beam back at Bramall Lane. This has been a game very important for both teams as they both strive for promotion into the Championship league. All the Blades fans were at it on Facebook saying how the win was a formality and that after today, automatic promotion was guaranteed. I have resisted the temptation to gloat as I am well aware how disappointed their fans must be feeling, and prefer to look at the broader picture. If as a result of today’s game, both teams achieve promotion, then it is a triumph for Sheffield football in general. It would be great to have our traditional rivalry continuing at a higher level. Predictably, after the game, the Blades fans were screaming on praise or grumble that they should have had two penalties. Rest assured, if the most biased commentator in the world, Keith Edwards, does not think either incident was worthy of a penalty kick, then you can bet your life that the referee got it right. The Blades and Owls should now unite in the common cause of both overhauling Charlton, and consequently both getting automatic promotion. My elation if Wednesday were promoted would be much tempered were United to miss out. I was pleased to hear my sentiments echoed by Wednesday manager Gary Megson. Speculation about his future should now be put to bed as it must be most unsettling. I imagine that his remit demanded by Milan Mandaric will have been a minimum of the play offs. Most of my close friends are Blades supporters and their misery today is the one thing that is the downside of the result. Their team is still in good shape, and my dream of both of our teams gaining promotion is still very much alive, and I wish the Blades continued success this season. Regrettably, the majority of Blades fans do not have my sentiments, and are pre-occupied with Wednesday losing, more than their own team winning. It is high time that as Sheffielders, we should want the best for each other’s team. I am always happy to attend charity nights that benefit St. Lukes Hospice, one of my favourite charities, and am full of praise for Larry Anderson, a prolific singer on the clubs before being forced to retire through ill health. Larry always puts on a great show, and the Walkley Cottage pub was heaving, the many customers being treated to excellent performances from, in order of appearance, Diana

Edwards who as well as being Agnetha in the world’s number one Abba tribute band Bjorn Again, is half of the top duo Agnetha and Frida, along with fellow band member Sarah Fearnley, and this busy girl also appears as a solo act. I am also indebted to this lovely lass for driving me to the venue. Diana was superb and had the audience up dancing, unusual for so early in the evening. Diana was followed by a delightful lad, Mac who is great company as well as being a nice, easy to listen to singer. Next up was the ever popular Gary Phillips, whose relaxed style and connection with the audience complements his vocal talent, making him a superb all round entertainer, who is a previous winner of all round entertainer in the Mercury awards on more than one occasion. This superb evening of entertainment was concluded by the lovely Sammy Gayle who never fails to please. Although, unconfirmed at the time of writing, I understand that nearly eight hundred pounds was raised on the night, which I have to say is a magnificent effort. I completed the evening by visiting my close pal’s Gary Siinclair’s bar, Maggie May’s with Gary Phillips. It was so busy that I never saw him all night, although I did spend the whole evening on the stage. This week, we have lost three people who have given me enormous pleasure, a sportsman and two from the world of entertainment. I received a phone call from my good pal, ad legendary wing half, Tony Kay, informing me of the death of his former Wednesday team mate Tommy McAnearny, a great footballer and I was saddened to learn of the deaths of Frank Carson and Ken Goodwin, both great comedians.

KELL BROOK IN Weekly Wit With... WAR OF THE ROSES ALBERT Earlier this year it was announced that Kell Brook and Matthew Hatton would meet in the “War of the Roses” at the Arena on Saturday March 17th – live on Sky Sports. Tickets priced £30 (tiered), £40 (tiered), £60 (tiered/floor) and £100 (ringside) are on sale now The top two ranked Welterweights in Britain will clash in a classic Yorkshire versus Lancashire derby to lay to rest any debate on who is the best Welterweight in the land. The bigger picture for the fight though is the chance to fight for a World title later in 2012, and Brook, who is ranked in the top ten of all the governing bodies, is delighted to be facing Hatton in this hometown blockbuster. “This is a fight I’ve wanted for a long time and to get it at the Sheffield Arena means the world to me,” said Brook, 25. “When I first sat down with Eddie, he told me that his vision was a sell-out night at Sheffield Arena and now we’re here. It is a competitive division and we’re both trying to achieve the same goal, so I know that by putting him out of the equation, it gives me a clearer run at the title. I want people to stand up and take notice of me and these are the kind of nights that makes that happen. “We’ve been looking at fights here and in the US but this is the one that gives me the buzz. I know I’m comfortably the best Welterweight in Britain and I’m going to put in a devastating performance on March 17 to show the World just that.” The fight represents an impressive landmark for Hatton, who will fight for the 50th time as a pro when he faces Brook. The Manchester man has held the European and Commonwealth Welterweight titles and put in a brave performance against Saul Alvarez in Anaheim last March when they tussled for the vacant WBC Light Middleweight title. The 30 year-old returned to Welterweight action in August, winning the vacant IBF International title in Blackpool against Andrei Abramenka and with almost twice the number of fights under his belt, Hatton believes his experience of big fight nights will give him the edge in Sheffield. Tickets for Kell Brook vs. Matthew Hatton plus full championship undercard, priced £30 (tiered), £40 (tiered), £60 (tiered/floor) and £100 (ringside) are on sale now, available in person from the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield Box Office, by phone on 0114 256 5656 or online at www.motorpointarenasheffield. co.uk

SNODGRASS

I was standing outside the off licence earlier when I stopped some bloke who was going in. I said, “Excuse me mate, can you buy me some alcohol please?” He looked at me and said, “You must be old enough, surely?” “Yeah I am” I replied, “I just don’t have any money.” My boss just asked, “Do you think you can come in on Saturday this week? I know you enjoy your weekends, but I need you here.” “Yeah, no problem. I’ll probably be late though as the public transport is bad on weekends.” “Okay, when do you think you’ll get here then?” “Monday.” A guy and a girl were planning on going on a date to a new restaurant. The girl got ready and waited for her date to come pick her up. She waited for almost an hour and realised she got stood up. So she took off all her makeup and put up her hair in a bun. She slipped into her pyjamas, made some popcorn, and watched tv. Ten minutes later the doorbell rang, and sure enough it was the guy coming to pick her up. He looked her up and down and said, “Really? I’m an hour late and you’re STILL not ready!?” I went to my local market today and saw a sign that said: “ONE WATERMELON FOR £3 OR THREE FOR £10” Instead of telling the guy behind the stall how stupid he was I decided to show him. So I walked up to him and asked: “Can I buy a watermelon please?” “Yes sir, that’ll be three pounds.” I handed over the money and asked: “Actually, can I have another one please?” “No problem sir, that’s three pounds.” “Can I have one more?” “Certainly sir, three pounds.” Smirking I said: “I’ve just bought three watermelons for nine pounds but on your sign it says ten. Don’t you realise how stupid you are?” “That happens a lot,” he chuckled, “until I point out that you just bought three watermelons instead of one.” Some bloke was throwing sweets at me today. Most of them missed, but all of a sudden, Wham! I said to my boss this morning, “sorry I’m late, there was a big pile-up on the Highway 61.” He replied, “But that’s thousands of miles away in America.” “I know, I was watching it on the news.”

SPIRITUAL

Weekly Psychic Article by Psychic Glynis

Guardian Angels We all have a personal Guardian Angel and to me they are the most important celestial being of the heavenly realm. This special angel is forever at your side, acting as your celestial agent through ever moment of your life. If you would like to know how to draw your personal angel closer and open up the lines of communication follow the instructions below. How to Communicate with your Guardian Angel Many people do not give a thought to their Guardian Angel and that’s a shame because even angels like human communication. You need an affirmation to talk to your angel and open the celestial doors. Create a quite time, meditation helps but you must have a calm and receptive mind. Angels talk softly and gently, consequently if your mind is cluttered it may be difficult for your angel to connect and communicate. Recognise Communication Have you ever had a sudden urge to do something for no apparent reason? Pay attention to these impulses because your angel may be trying to guide you. For example, that feeling you get telling you to pick up the phone and call a friend you haven’t seen for a long time or if you have a family problem and are guided to a certain solution by some form of communication. I rely on my Guardian Angel when I’m researching articles. I know that I shouldn’t but I do as she always leads me to the right information. I always thank her. I know who my Guardian Angel is because when she appears she brings with her a special smell. She has played a significant role in my life; on one particular occasion her help actually saved my life. While sat in the dentist my eye was drawn to the table of magazines but in particular to an article describing the symptoms of cervical cancer. The very next day I saw my GP in the hospital where she was attending a course about the very same subject. We chatted and she asked when I had last had a smear test? I explained that I hadn’t and she booked me in for one the next day. I had the smear and 4 days later an operation that saved my life. I

had been completely unaware of just how ill I was (shame on me - a nurse for 30 years!) If it wasn’t for the guidance by my Guardian Angel I wouldn’t be here now. Ask for Help Don’t be embarrassed to ask for help. I know it’s a bit daft talking into the air but we all do it and your Guardian Angel will hear your request. However, this doesn’t mean that you have an endless supply of favours that will be instantly granted. Your Guardian Angel is not a fairy godmother who grants wishes on command. Guardian Angels command respect and it is important to give them that respect. Know How and When to Ask for Help What to ask for…mmmmm let me think! Perhaps a new car or a pair of diamond earrings! Sorry to disappoint but it doesn’t work like that. We cannot ask for materialistic goods. We can ask to be kept safe, for our family to be healthy and for the strength to cope in times of crisis. You could even ask for a lover to enter your life. Always listen for the answers. Be open to all communication from your Guardian Angel. Thank your Guardian Angel If you have a name for your Guardian Angel use it and thank him/her everyday for keeping you safe. Why not create a mantra to acknowledge your angel, for example, ‘Good night Guardian Angel I thank you for protecting me and my family’. Any Questions please text to 07811632353 or psychicglynis@ talktalk.net

NEWS & INFORMATION

MOBILITY SCOOTER ON LOW FLOOR BUSES

One of our members, Ian Wallace, has been campaigning for some time for clarification about mobility scooters and wheelchairs on buses in Sheffield after experiencing major problems trying to use public transport in Sheffield. The Confederation of Passenger Transport and the Department for Transport recently launched a scheme designed to give users of mobility scooters improved access to bus services. The scheme will enable users to take their scooters on the designated low-floor buses of participating operators, providing they have been issued with a permit. In order to get a permit, passengers will need to have a Class 2 scooter* that is no larger than 1000mm long, 600mm wide, with a turning radius no greater than 1200mm. A free, simple assessment will be conducted by a participating bus operator. The weight of the scooter (including user) is also taken in to consideration and must be no more than 300kg (47 Stone). These requirements are designed to ensure that a scooter can fit in the designated space on board all accessible low-floor buses and can board in a safe and controlled manner. In South Yorkshire, both First and Stagecoach have signed up to the scheme and will be offering assessments and issuing passes to those who meet the specification outlined above. Anyone wishing to apply for a permit needs to contact the appropriate operator. There was a launch at Sheffield Interchange on the 22 February at which both First and Stagecoach were present to carry out assessments. Passengers will be able to undertake assessments at interchanges in Barnsley, Doncaster or Rotherham, please call the numbers below for more details. First – 01709 566 000 Stagecoach – 0845 266 6606 Included is a leaflet detailing all the relevant information about the scheme. *A Class 2 scooter is one constructed or adapted to be incapable of a speed of more than 4mph.

TOO YOUNG TO WRITE A WILL? It is a common misconception that making a Will is something you should do as you get older. However, there are a number of reasons why you should make a Will now.

If you are living with someone, but not married, it is essential to make a Will otherwise they may get nothing. Unmarried partners have very little protection in law, the idea of a ‘common law partner’ has no legal standing. Even if you do not have substantial assets or property you may still have important personal possessions you wish to leave to particular people. If you die without a Will the law specifies how your assets will be distributed to family members in a fixed order. If you have no eligible family members your assets will go to the Crown.

Katy Burgin of Norrie, Waite & Slater

SHEFFIELD

KITCHEN OUTLET

If you have children, it is important to consider who would take care of them if both parents die. Stating your wishes in your Will can make it clear exactly what you would like to happen. It may also help to avoid disputes between opposing family members who would all like to help. Many people have children from previous relationships. If you have remarried and have not made a Will, your children could miss out on their entitlement to the share of the estate you would like them to have. By making a Will you can ensure that both your current partner and your children are provided for. If you do not make a Will you are increasing the chances of your estate being disputed by family members. Making a Will does not have to be complicated. A professionally written Will can be surprisingly inexpensive. At Norrie Waite and Slater a solicitor will meet with you to discuss your requirements and offer advice on any areas you may not have thought of. They will help you decide how your will should be drafted and also that you fully understand exactly what will happen. Their expertise will ensure you have peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out.

CAMPAIGN CHANGES DRINKING BEHAVIOUR Alcohol awareness charity Drinkaware says all three of its 2011 campaigns have exceeded expectations and led to a change in drinking behaviour across its target audiences. A survey of 1,000 18-24 year olds conducted on behalf of Drinkaware by research agency Millward Brown showed the impact that the charity’s campaigns have had over the last year. “Each campaign area performed above expectations,” said Drinkaware chief executive Chris Sorek. “We can say that we have started to see some of the ‘green shoots’ of behaviour change. When you add in industry support, we have also been able to reach more consumers, more often than in

previous years.” Eight out of 10 regular drinkers (680,000) claim to have adopted at least one of the tips put forward as part of Drinkaware’s ‘Why let good times go bad?’ campaign to reduce the desirability and acceptability of drunkenness among young adults. ‘Excuses’, the campaign aimed at 30-45 year old ‘increasing risk’ drinkers, drove a 31% increase in sign-ups to MyDrinkaware.co.uk, the charity’s online drinks tracking tool. Alcohol consumption of active users of MyDrinkaware fell from an average of 5 units per day to 3.9 units. Research also showed that 44% of parents went on to have conversations with their children about alcohol after seeing the

charity’s ‘Your Kids and Alcohol’ campaign. Sorek added: “Industry’s participation in Drinkaware campaigns over the past year has helped us dramatically increase our reach and now we’re starting to see positive behaviour change. “Support from industry generated a media value way beyond the £25 million target for 2011 and we are delighted with the enormous enthusiasm to do even more in 2012. “Partnerships offer a fantastic opportunity to boost the visibility of our campaigns. As we look for support reaching adults and parents in 2012 there’s now even greater scope for companies to get involved”.

live Line Up Announcement V Festival 2012 Words by Katy Evans

Hell if the universe is ending in December, V Festival might just have cut us a few months short with their 2012 line-up announcement to blow us out of this world! Remember last year’s headliners if you would (Arctic Monkeys, Rihanna, Eminem…) ensuring this year’s line-up would be a pretty difficult one to top. But like any seasoned professional would, the festival’s organisers have once again topped 2011 with this summer’s hottest event you definitely do not want to miss. First things first then…headliners. We could now go on about how much a legendary band these Mancunian’s are, but we’re pretty sure you know that already, so let’s save the exaggerated clichés and announce The Stone Roses as a headline act for V Fest 2012. After confirming their reunion late last year, The Stone Roses are one of this country’s most heavily influencing groups and remain the back bone of British indie rock. Rest assured, with Ian Brown on vocals, their set will be anything but static. Headliner numero dos? Hell, it’s the Killers! Famed for their outlandish stage performance and international chart topping hits, the US Rockers are one of the world’s largest bands, with tracks ‘Mr Brightside’ and ‘Read My Mind’ adored around the globe. Whether or not lead vocalist Brandon Flowers will bring along his additional facial hair… we cannot confirm (although really hope not!) It seems this year’s festival really is all about entwining both the old and the new, with a variety of chart toppers from the past to meet some of the hottest bands on the current scene. Also confirmed for the weekend held on the split site between Hylands Park in Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire include the likes of Snow Patrol, Madness, two-time Brit Award Winner Ed Sheeran and no other than Tom Jones. Having recently given a five star performance at Sheffield’s Motor Point Arena, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are also confirmed as a weekend act, reinforcing the Northern feel of the festival and allowing for a punchy injection of alternative rock. Sheffield should be a very proud city with a culmination of some of its finest acts gracing V Festival stages in 2012. Reverend and The Makers, one of Yorkshire’s most successful exports along with The human League are also signed up to play. One of the UK’s most celebrated bands to emerge from the early 1980’s Human League have a worldwide fan base and are sure to deliver on a huge scale over the August weekend. Other acts include Noah & The Whale, Ben Howard, Rizzle Kicks, Frank Turner, Labrinth, Maverick Sabre, The Enemy, Miles Kane, Dappy, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Pixie Lott, Lissie, Shed Seven, The Ting Tings, The Proclaimers, The Stranglers, Inspiral Carpets, The Rifles, Dj Fresh. V Festival is from 18th – 19th August 2012. Tickets go on sale Friday 2nd March at 10am with fans advised to go check out www.vfestival.com for all official ticket outlets. Don’t miss out!

Preview InMe - Corporation - 08/03

Words by Katy Evans

Back with an almighty vengeance along with a belteringly new album ‘The Pride’ to kick start Spring 2012, Inme have officially returned onto the heavy rock music scene… (hold for applause!) One of the most successfully underground rock pieces to remain as music lovers biggest secret, Inme are bringing their hugely anticipated live show to Sheffield’s Corporation on 8th March, part of their thirty five date UK tour running throughout February and March 2012. Sharing the stages with some of the music industries biggest and most legendary acts to date, Inme lay their roots in Essex however have a wide spread appeal expanding their wings across the globe. Touring with the likes of Biffy Clyro, Limp Bizkit and Nickelback, the brutal rockers are no strangers to putting on massive sets to match their rip-roaring on stage persona and bolstering up-tempo repertoire. Gracing festival stages across the world to include their triumphant return to Sonisphere 2011 which saw an over flowingly full 5000 capacity Bohemia tent bursting through its seams, Inme have also torn through sets at Reading and Leeds Festival along with Download and Summer Breeze festival…rest assured their show at Sheffield will be huge! Inme have a whopping four studio album’s under their belt with the release of their fifth ‘The Pride’ in partnership with the Alzheimer’s society. Released via Pledge Music, enabling the band to connect with them and helpa cause of their choice, frontman Dave Mc Pherson is in no doubt that this method if the best path to take. ‘We have around 70 incentives including ‘The Pride’ album, ‘Elysium: Overgrown Eden Live’ DVD, personalised songs, house party gigs, a massive merch range, handwritten lyric sheets & loads more.

round-up by stuart renton

Is it just me or is anyone else sick of the hype surrounding the Olympic Games? I was walking through town the other day and a Virgin sales rep bounded up to me and effusively asked if I’d like to win tickets to see the Games in London. She seemed horrified when I said no, and declared me the first person to turn her down (although I doubt that’s the first time some random guy has said yes to an offer from her in the street). OK, maybe it’s my national spirit that’s dead, or perhaps I’m just fed up of having the whole event shoved down my throat months in advance. Some days I feel like a spectator at Kim Jong Il’s funeral (you will cry goddamn it). Mind you, I don’t need the death of a Korean dictator to make me cry; I just turn on the TV to see Kerry Katona whinging about the state of her life (or how great it all is – it differs by the hour) the reminder that she’s still getting work is more than enough to make me weep!

Still, if that wasn’t bad enough, Britain’s Got Talent returns with Amanda Holden magically, incredibly, still on the panel. I’m not sure how she’s a judge of talent, the only specialism she has involves Botox! If they ever make a show called Celebrity Crack Filling (it’s at this point that I don’t even need to make a joke…) she’ll be first in the queue for work done. I can think of one of Amanda Holden’s cracks I’d like to fill, and before you get the wrong idea, I’m thinking of her mouth! This year Britain’s Got Talent has lost one David (Hasselhoff) and gained another (Walliams). Seeing the gurning celebrity who’s self-worth appears to be based on how effeminate he can make himself is enough to make my stomach churn, but the public loves the show and we can’t get enough of dancing dogs, saccharine-sweet six year olds, and drag queens lip-synching to tired 80’s classics. That’s entertainment of the highest calibre. Apparently. Well, it is when the kids screw up. Simon Cowell’s response to Holly “can I start again please?” Steel’s crying was pure comedy genius. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of seeing him trying to balance his “you screwed up and it’s game over” with his “what will the public think?” attitude. It’s those few moments of joy that give me a warm tingling feeling inside for years to come. Or maybe I’m just evil. What do you think?

Angler’s Corner Racing Form by Clint Walker

Today sees me reach one hundred columns for the Sheffield Mercury! I knew I’d enjoy writing it when I was approached by Editor Glenn Wood, I just didn’t realise how much, and I hope you have gained some insight from it too; here’s to the next hundred! Another mad week for me over the last seven days starting with a visit to the ‘Carp and Coarse Spectacular’ at the Ricoh Arena down in Coventry; if I’m honest ‘spectacular’ may be bit ambitious, but it wasn’t a bad day out, especially as it was a completely free event. I met the guys who invented the revolutionary ‘Spomb’ and was happy to listen as Bryan explained just how the product had come about; if you are a spodder, then I think the Spomb is coming to get you! It’s a truly stunning little bit of kit which puts an end to fiddling about with pva nuggets or groundbait plugs when you to bait accurately at range. A simple spring device lets the ‘Spomb’ separate on contact with water and discharges the loaded bait into the target area without any wastage or spillage dragging fish elsewhere; there is even a new ‘mini-Spomb’ which can be used with any carp rod, so no additional expense incurred by buying a dedicated rod (unless you want to, Free Spirit have designed a Spomb rod!) You can find out more at www.spomb.com I also had chance to catch up with Dean Macey on the Guru stand who spent almost twenty minutes chatting, so don’t be afraid of approaching celebrity anglers, they love to talk! I spent a few hours with Jamie Kemp on Thursday; Jamie is the Managing Director of renowned luggage manufacturer Cotswold Aquarius and had invited me to see the factory where thousands of items of top quality angling and shooting luggage is designed and constructed. Although Cotswold also do bespoke products and cater for other markets, Jamie and his team are predominately known for their angling designs. It is always nice to be shown the behind the scenes aspect of any angling company, so I was really looking forward to it... We discussed a plethora of issues which affect the UK market, and Jamie was at pains to note that ‘copycat’ products are one his primary concerns; he raised the point that many competitors are happy for Cotswold Aquarius to take all the risk and expense in product development and design, then just copy it with the odd subtle changes....when you find out how much effort goes in to just one carryall, then you can see his point entirely.... Jamie showed me several of the stock items and demonstrated how much work s required before passing each item out as fit for sale. I was astonished to see how many patterns have to be cut for just one bag before its painstakingly stitched together, checked and then packed for sale. Cutting edge fabrics only add to the quality of every item, so if you own Cotswold Aquarius kit, I can tell you, it’s top notch kit!!! www.cotswoldaquarius.co.uk

As the Festival looms ever larger (only two weeks to go!) this weekend’s racing looks a bit below top class. Newbury and Doncaster host the Channel 4 meetings, showing six difficult and tricky handicaps on a day when the fare can only be described as not too exciting. In something of a departure this week I am providing a suggestion for each race on Saturday. Newbury: 2.05 Betfair Supporting Greatwood Handicap Hurdle, Class 3, 4yo+ rated 0-130, 3miles 110yds: To my mind the handful to concentrate on is: Big Easy; Imperial Circus; Lamboro Lad; Pavillon Bleu; and Stow. Big Easy won well in beating Bocciani by 1 ½ lengths in a good time at Doncaster recently and could go similarly well at this track. In another race run in a good time Lamboro Lad ran well to finish fourth behind Allthekingshorses at Doncaster a couple of weeks ago where one of Philip Hobbs other runners here, Imperial Circus, finished sixth. Pavillon Bleu is another Hobbs entry to have run well recently when finishing tenth behind Knock A Hand at this track on 15th February. However the

In what looks to be a very tricky race Cloudy Too and Corkage are others to be running well and may present most danger, although Tarvini (on a hat trick), Allow Me and Five Star Wilsham could also go well. 2.55 William Hill Grimthorpe Handicap Chase, Class 2, 5yo+, 3 miles 2 furlongs: Ballabriggs holds an entry for this race and is the selection if he lines up. If he goes elsewhere then Benny Be Good (also entered in the Kelso 4.10) gets the second choice vote, being just marginally preferred to the consistent Fruity O’Rooney and Junior.

vote goes to Stow who also ran well in fifth behind Knock A Hand and always seems to go well at this track. The Venetia Williams stable is firing in the winners at present and this one could add another to the trophy cabinet. 2.40 Please Support Greatwood Veterans’ Handicap Chase, Class 2, 0-145, 3miles 2f 110yds: I find it difficult to enthuse too much about veteran chasers. My top rated here is another Venetia Williams inmate, Miko de Beauchene, but he was pulled up recently at Haydock (admittedly on dreadful ground) so I am overlooking him in favour of her other runner Atouchbetweenacara. This one finished second behind Faasel at Doncaster last week in another veterans’ event but a repeat of that effort could be good enough to see him home in front here. Of the others, Wogan, now with Tom Symonds, has run well here in the past. Jonjo O’Neill’s Arbor Supreme ran a good time over hurdles recently and could be dangerous to dismiss, which also applies to Hello Bud, Fair Along, Ouzbeck and Niche Market. 3.10 Barbury International Supporting Greatwood Gold Cup Handicap Chase, Grade 3, Class 1, 5yo+, 2miles 4 furlongs: If National winner Ballabriggs lines up for this he is the selection. However he has a number of entries all over the country (one in the Doncaster 2.55 and one in the Kelso 4.10) and is not a certain starter. Clear second choice is Passato, followed by Fine Parchment (disappointing so far this year but may come good in the Spring), Fix The Rib and Dan Breen. 3.45 Ladbrokes Supporting Greatwood Handicap Hurdle, Class 3, 4yo+ rated 0-135, 2 miles 110yds: Paul Nicholls’ Sire Collonges gets the vote in the hope that he will get round. The chief threats may well come from Lucy Wadham’s bottom weight Manshoor, Tony Carroll’s Zafranagar, John Mackie’s Knight In Purple and Barry Leavy’s King Zeal. Of the rest Rebel Dancer and Looks Like Slim could take a hand if turning out but I reckon that the hattrick seeking David Pipe entry Poole Master may have too much weight here.

Local Football by Michael Clarke County Senior League This past weekend was intriguing in the County Senior League. There were pivotal results in all three leagues.

Premier Division Starting in the Premier Division, leaders Stocksbridge Park Steels Reserves were held goalless by mid-table High Green Villa. The game provided spectators with an excellent exhibition of goalkeeping and defending from both sides. Athersley Recreation took advantage of Stocksbridge’s blank to take top spot by a single point. Athersley were not so impressive but did enough to edge out Davy FC 2-1 at Davy Sports Club. Two goals from Nick Savage helped Penistone Church keep third place. They beat Wombwell Main 3-2 at the Memorial Ground. Mark Crossfield also scored for Penistone, who are now unbeaten in four matches. Ashley Atkins was in fine form as Swallownest Miners Welfare beat Ecclesfield Red Rose 2-0 away from home. The win takes Swallownest within three points of Athersley’s lead. There were also significant results at the bottom-ofthe-league. Bottom side Hallam Reserves grabbed their first point since November, with a 2-2 draw away against South Kirkby Colliery. But that result was in vain as a single goal from Ross Batemen gave second bottom Sheffield FC Reserves 1-0 win over Handsworth Reserves. Elsewhere, Millmoor Juniors lost their fourth straight league game. This time Everest FC were the benefiters taking the points with a 4-3 win. Division One The top two in Division One, Frecheville and Houghton Main met at Frecheville Sports & Social Club last Saturday. The difference could not have been so stark with Houghton Main winning the game 6-0. Adam Stead scored a hat-trick with Luke Sykes also scoring twice. The result moves Houghton Main ten points clear of their rivals. If things could not get any worse for Frecheville, they lost second place on goal difference to Penistone Church Reserves. Penistone beat Sheffield Athletic 6-4 in an immensely entertaining game at Warminster Road. Two goals from Luke Webster inspired Thorpe Hesley to a 3-1 win over Swinton Station Athletic at the Kilnhurst Recreation Ground. Thorpe Hesley remain in fourth place, four points off second. Also four points off second are Worlsop Parramore, who impressively saw-off Aqua Force Barnsley 3-0. Two of the goals came from Liam Morris. The loss is Aqua Force’s first in the league since September 10th. Bottom side Caribbean Sports claimed their first win of the season, as they beat Wickersley 3-2 away from home. However, they still sit eight points adrift of their nearest rivals Sheffield Athletic. Bryan Cook scored the only goal as Oughtibridge WMSC beat Bramley Sunnyside Juniors. Oughtibridge are now five league games undefeated. Elsewhere, Worsbrough Bridge Reserves made it three consecutive goalless draws, as they were held by Silkstone United at home. Division Two League leaders Athersley Recreation Reserves were in formidable form, beating De La Salle Old Boys 5-0 at Sheerien Park. The goals came from Richard Gomersall (2), Craig Bouch, Dale Brettoner and Ben Lang. However, Gleadless FC are keeping the pressure on the leaders. Lee Webber scored three times for them, as they beat Frecheville Reserves 4-0. Spencer Raynes was also on the score-sheet for Gleadless for the fifth straight occasion. New Bohemians made it three wins in five games, as they beat bottom side Sheffield Lane Top 2-0 at the Boundary Sports & Social Club. Chad Riley-Long and Craig Fox were Meadowhall League No games were scheduled for last weekend due to the Sheffield Derby clashing with the usual kick-off time. Everything will resume as per usual next week


Millers and Rovers News & Reviews 2011/12

PIRATES STEAL POINT FROM DON VALLEY MILLERS NEWS www.themillers.co.uk

Rotherham United were heading for five games unbeaten until a late goal by Andy Dorman sealed the points for the visiting Pirates. Manager Andy Scott made two changes to the side that claimed a good point at Gillingham, with the big swap coming between the sticks. Rhys Taylor lost his fitness race due to a knock he picked up in the week so Andy Warrington started in goal, whilst Richard Naylor came in for Michael Raynes who dropped to the bench. It was a cagey opening that provided little goalmouth action for either side, with the first real chance not coming until the 20th minute. Former Torquay United man Chris Zebroski broke clear down the right-hand side and burst into the area, but could only find the side netting with his effort. Just minutes later, the scoring really should have been opened, as Mustapha Carayol this time broke free down the left flank and when he squared the ball, the combination of Zebroski and Matthew Lund somehow managed to put the ball wide from inside the six yard box. Once again, the visitors created an opportunity from the wing, resulting in Joe Anyinsah missing his kick when looking to connect with Zebroski’s low cross. At the other end, the Millers went close as danger-man Zebroski headed just wide of his own goal from Zebroski’s cross. Sam Wood and Lewis Grabban exchanged wings as the home side looked to create something of their own, and it almost paid off as Wood played a neat ball into the channel for the onrushing Mark Bradley who took an excellent first touch before

ROVERS EARN HOME POINT AGAINST POSH ROVERS NEWS www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk

The Rovers made four changes to the starting line-up for today’s game against Peterborough United,with Shelton Martis, Habib Beye, Kyle Bennett and Mamadou Bagayoko replacing Adam Lockwood, Sam Hird, James Hayter and Habib Bamogo. The Rovers defended the South Stand end in the first half. The Rovers went straight on to the attack from the kick off and won a corner after 25 seconds but it was cleared. The visitors then tried to go forward but were held at bay. In the fifth minute a good move by the Rovers ended with Barnes having a go from 25yards but he put the ball high and wide. Two minutes later and good work by Chimbonda on the Rovers right halted when he was brought down by Boyd just outside the penalty area, with the Posh man earning a booking. Midfield play followed, with the Rovers having most of the possession in the next ten minutes. Then a corner to the Rovers was well caught at the far post by Jones. The visitors then retaliated with a corner of their own but Button palmed away at the far post. Some minutes later and another corner to the Rovers came to nothing but continuing to attack Kyle Bennett had a good strike from 20yards just before the half hour but Jones was in the right place to save comfortably. Past the half hour and Peterborough went on to the attack causing a few heart-stopping moments in the Rovers crowd. However, the Rovers came forward again, with shots from Gillett and Diouf blocked in the penalty area. Then Gillett, on the Rovers left, lifted the ball to the far post where Bennett headed over. Gillett followed this a couple of minutes later by having his shot from the left saved by Jones. In the 41st minute a good break by Bennett when McCann slipped led to him feeding Bagayoko on the left, who took the ball on before shooting from inside the area causing Jones to beat the ball away with the clearance completed by a defender. A couple of minutes later and Briggs, for the Posh, got forward but he fired wide of the far post from 30yards. Back came the Rovers and in the first minute of added time the Rovers were awarded a free

firing high and wide. The final action of the half, saw a superb pass by Johnny Mullins found Grabban on the left-hand side, who cut inside and fired goalwards, only to see it loop over the bar off Cian Bolger. Kieron Cadogan was introduced at half-time in place of fellow loanee Shaun Harrad, but it was Warrington who was collecting the accolades early in the second-half. The stopper rushed out from his goal to collect at the feet on Anyinsah who looked destined to score after beating Scott Griffiths. At the other end, Grabban, now operating as a striker, had a golden chance to open the scoring when he was sent clear by Revell, only to see his shot drag wide of Scott Bevan’s goal. A double substitution was made by the visitors as the Millers had started the second-half the brightest but it was to no avail as the home side continued to press with Revell this time trying his luck from the edge of the area only to his effort go wide of the post. The Millers striker again tried his luck soon after, and again couldn’t hit the target. Grabban had seen his half-volley parried out to the striker’s feet, but he side footed over the bar from 15 yards out. However, Revell then returned the favour, by creating for Grabban on 75 minutes but the Millers top scorer was stopped in his tracks by the alert Bevan. As the game approached the 90 minute mark, Wood fired straight at Bevan whilst Warrington, after a quiet afternoon was alert enough to pull off a fine save from Andy Dorman. However, he could do nothing about the bitter blow that was dealt during the three added minutes. Substitute Lee Brown crossed from the left, and an unmarked Dorman fired home despite the best efforts of the goalkeeper. kick on their right touchline. Diouf swung the ball into the middle where BARNES rose higher than anybody else to head the ball into the net. In the remaining time the Posh pushed forward winning a free kick, for which Chimbonda was booked for illegally stopping Briggs careering down the left. This was successfully defended at the expense of a corner, which was headed away at which point the referee blew his whistle for half time. The Posh got the second half underway but Stock won the ball, gave to Diouf who fed Bennett on the right. Taking it on Bennett fired for the far corner but Jones, diving to his right, got a hand to it to push it round the post for a corner. This came out of defence to Stock who fired over the bar from 20yards. Minutes later and Taylor, for the Posh, made a good run down their right before firing across the goal and past the far post. Peterborough stepped up the pace now and just before the hour a corner came to nothing and a shot from McCannwas beaten out by Button. On the hour a corner to the Rovers came back to Diouf, who made tracks for goal and was only stopped by a well timed tackle by Sinclair in the area. Then Kyle Bennett was only just wide from 25yards following a good move down the left by Spurr and Barnes. Back came Peterborough with Frecklington having a shot saved and a shot from Taylor was pushed out by Button for a corner. In the 70th minute Taylor came in from the right but fired wide of the far post. Minutes later Briggs played Sinclair in on the left but Button saved well at the near post. The Rovers had been under the cosh for most of the second half and in the 87th minute, from a free kick in the left corner, Barnett, at the far post, fired high over. At the end of normal time, following a corner, Taylor fired over the bar. Five minutes of added time was indicated (?) as both sides went back and forth seeking for the all important goal, Rovers to seal the win and Perborough to get a point. The Posh won that contest in the second minute of added time when Ryan Bennett got to the right byline and crossed for BARNETT to head just inside the near post and out of Button’s reach.

BLADES EDGED OUT BY OWLS IN STEEL DERBY BLADES NEWS www.sufc.co.uk

The Blades remain in pole position for an immediate return to the Championship but three more points slipped away on Sunday. More than 14,000 Unitedites watched the 114th league Steel City derby - 4,700 at Hillsborough and 9,317 via a beam back at Bramall Lane - but Chris O’Grady’s second half goal secured the victory for Wednesday. If the Blades go on to secure promotion it will have to happen without a victory over Wednesday this season. Williamson and Montgomery returned to the United starting line up at the expense of the injured McDonald and Flynn, who dropped to the bench and was joined by Ertl and new goalkeeper, Howard. The Blades had the Wednesday Kop booing before kick-off after turning around the action, forcing the home side to kick toward the Unitedites in the second half, no doubt returning skipper Montgomery winning the toss. The ball was stuck to the boots of Blades players early on and it was on six minutes that the first opportunity was created, thanks to Lowton breezing through Johnson. From the defenders’s low cross, a backheel from Evans was blocked by a combination of defender and goalkeeper and Jones blasted

away to safety. From Wednesday’s first corner, Grady headed over a Lines delivery but the Blades went ultra close to opening the scoring with 15 minutes gone. Quinn was fouled by Semedo and Williamson’s curling free-kick beat Bywater but struck the underside of the crossbar and bounced close to the line before the home goalkeeper recovered to collect Cresswell’s header on the rebound. The game’s first flashpoint arrived around the 20-minute mark when home skipper Jones ran into Maguire looking for a penalty and then pushed his hands into the face of United’s teenage defender. Referee Halsey had a word with both players before deciding to take no further action. The chances were flowing, at both ends. Lowe failed to get on the end of Antonio’s low centre and and Prutton’s shot was blocked following a half-cleared corner. At the other end, Williamson thought he should have had a penalty after Semedo’s challenge. A 30-yard free-kick from Lines was comfortable for the well-positioned Simonsen, whilst the home player looked nervous everytime Evans picked up possession. The Blades were also on top as the half came to a close, attacks involving Williamson, Jean-Francois, Lowton and Evans failing to pay off. The second half took a while to get going, which possibly suited Wednesday, and Maguire had to head clear an Antonio cross which O’Grady was looking to pounce upon. On 54 minutes O’Grady then held off Doyle on a marauding rung before shooting just wide. Just before the hour the home side made the game’s first substitution and

quickly followed it with a second, both attacking-based and probably a result of the Wednesday management knowing that they were more in need of a victory. And it paid off, on 73 minutes. Buxton played a one-two with Antonio down the right and the defender got away from Quinn to deliver a cross which O’GRADY directed beyond Simonsen with a header. A minute later the Blades created a first chance of the half but a 35-yard free-kick from Evans was straight at Bywater, who held on, whilst United’s first change was Flynn for Montgomery with little over ten minutes to go. Hoskins was the second change, replacing Cresswell for the last five minutes, and he just failed to come out of a challenge with Jones with the ball. Beattie was the last throw of the dice, replacing Quinn, whilst the next chance fell to Flynn after an Evans run but the diminutive Scot could only sidefoot into Bywater’s arms. United’s best chance arrived in the 90th minute but, from Flynn’s cross, an unmarked Hoskins saw his header tipped over the crossbar by Bywater, who, with the aid of his defenders, repelled the Blades for the four minutes of injury-time. Wednesday: Bywater, Buxton, Batth, R. Jones, R. Johnson, Semedo, Prutton (M. Jones 64), Lines, Antonio (Llera 90), Lowe (Madine 59), O’Grady. Unused: Weaver, Morrison. Blades: Simonsen, Lowton, Jean-Francois, Montgomery (Flynn 79), Doyle, Evans, Williamson, Collins, Cresswell (Hoskins 85), Maguire, Quinn (Beattie 86). Unused: Ertl, Howard.

WILSONʼS VIEW GAFFERS REACTION www.sufc.co.uk

Danny Wilson was pleased to be a part of such an occasion on Sunday but could not hide his disappointment at the result. “These occasions are why you are in football, games you want to be involved be in,” said the United chief. “The spectacle and the atmosphere certainly did get the adrenaline going. “It was a very tough, as we expected it to be. It was nip and tuck all the way with very little between the two teams, who you would expect will be challenging at the top end of League One the end of the season. “We are very disappointed, particularly for the supporters, it is a game that’s all about the supporters and we understand that. “We had good chances, a couple of penalty claims and that free kick! We possibly could have done better with a couple of the situations we created, but we didn’t have the luck on our side either.”

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY NEWS 2011/12 OʼGRADY WINS DERBY FOR OWLS MATCH REPORT www.swfc.co.uk

Sheffield Wednesday took the honours in the Steel City derby at Hillsborough on Sunday with a 1-0 victory over Sheffield United. Chris O’Grady was the man of the moment as the striker headed home the only goal of the game after the break, getting on the end of an accurate cross from Lewis Buxton. The bursting crowd at Hillsborough were treated to an exciting affair as Wednesday posted three vital points to move within two points of the Blades. The atmosphere at Hillsborough was electric as the Owls got the game underway at 1.00pm, kicking towards the Kop. It was the visitors from S2 who carved the first opening inside five minutes. Matt Lowton darted into the area from the right before teeing up Richard Cresswell, whose improvised strike was saved by Stephen Bywater from close range. A Wednesday corner presented the Owls with their first chance of the afternoon as Chris Lines fizzed his flag kick into the area, picking out Reda Johnson who headed over the bar. The lively early pace was well-received by the capacity crowd at Hillsborough as United went within inches of taking the lead after 16 minutes. Lee Williamson’s free kick from 20 yards came cannoning back off the upright before Bywater was able to gather from the rebound, with Cresswell lurking inside the six yard box. But back came Wednesday and new recruit Michail Antonio, who sent in dangerous low ball into the area that was just too far ahead of Ryan Lowe to make a connection at the back post. Lines then saw his well-struck free

kick stopped by Steve Simonsen before O’Grady couldn’t quite adjust his body to have a shot from David Prutton’s rebounded strike. Ched Evans’ snap-shot volley from 30 yards drifted harmlessly wide before the referee brought an end to a lively first half at Hillsborough, with the deadlock yet to be broken. Antonio began the second half as he finished the first, causing United problems down the right channel as the winger deliveredan inviting cross into the area which O’Grady headed wide. O’Grady then used all his strength and determination to win the ball in midfield before bursting upfield and striking just wide of Simonsen’s left hand post. Wednesday then made the first change of the afternoon with Gary Madine replacing Ryan Lowe on the hour-mark. Antonio’s long throw was proving a useful weapon for Wednesday in the attack with the on-loan Reading man throwing deep into the Blades’ area at every opportunity. And Wednesday’s relentless second half pressure was made to count on 73 minutes. Lewis Buxton made an intelligent burst down the right flank before delivering a superb centre for O’Grady to head past the diving Simonsen. The Blades had to issue a response to falling behind, having offered little in the final third since the restart. Will Hoskins tested Bywater with a close-range header but the Owls’ goalkeeper was equal to the test, pushing behind for a corner. And that was that at Hillsborough as the Owls emerged triumphant from the derby clash. Owls: Bywater, Buxton, Batth, R Jones, R Johnson Semedo, Prutton (M Jones 64), Lines, Antonio (Llera 90), Lowe (Madine 59), O’Grady Unused substitutes: Weaver, Morrison Blades: Simonsen, Lowton, Maguire, Jean-Francois, Montgomery (Flynn 80), Doyle, Quinn (Beattie 86), Evans, Williamson, Collins, Cresswell (Hoskins 85) Unused substitutions: Howard, Ertl

MEGSON HAILS OWLS TRIUMPH GAFFERS REACTION www.swfc.co.uk

Gary Megson has hailed the Owls’ derby victory over neighbours Sheffield United as ‘a fantastic performance’. Chris O’Grady’s second half header sealed three vital points, leaving Wednesday right on the heels of the Blades in the League 1 promotion shake-up. And Megson was pleased with every aspect of his side’s display. He said: “I thought it was a fantastic performance from us, all over the field. Danny Wilson made some comments in the press in the week, saying there was a fag paper between the two sides and he was spot on. “It was a very tight game and we did everything right, we chased every ball, made our tackles and showed the right heart and character. “I felt one moment of quality would win the game and Chris O’Grady did that from a terrific cross from Lewis Buxton. “Chris was immense today, Ryan Lowe ran himself into the ground alongside him and that was indicative of our performance.” Megson revealed that he told his players today’s game was a chance to finish what they started at Bramall Lane earlier in the season, when the Owls came from 2-0 down to snatch a draw and almost victory. He added: “We talked before the game about that because we ran out of time at Bramall Lane in a game that I thought we would have won and we nearly did right at the end. “It didn’t actually start like that because United came out well for the first ten minutes but then we grew into the game. “We spoke at half time about there being plenty of seven out of tens but we needed eights and nines. “They responded by upping their games by 15 per cent and we got the win we deserved.”

STEEL CITY SHIRTS UP FOR GRABS

The shirts worn in Sunday’s Steel City derby are up for auction to help boost funds for three local charities - Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, the Cavendish Centre and The Children’s Hospital Charity. Opening bids for each shirt are from £40. The auctions start today (Monday 27 February) and will run for ten days, finishing on the evening of Thursday 8 March. The auction repeats the initiative from the derby at Bramall Lane earlier this season when each of the three benefiting charities received more than £1,500. To make a bid for a Wednesday shirt, the e-Bay address is:http://myworld.ebay. co.uk/sheffieldwednesday1867 To make a bid for a Sheffield United shirt, go to http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/ officialsheffieldunitedfc CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE Other footballers backing the campaign are Jamie Lowry of Chesterfield Football Club, Bobby Hassell of Barnsley Football Club, Dale Tonge of Rotherham United and Kyle Bennett of Doncaster Rovers. Top world-ranking referee Howard Webb and former Premiership referee Uriah Rennie are also lending support to the campaign. Rachel Thorpe, director of Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity said: “We are delighted to be launching the Extra Time campaign and to have the support of the football stars. “Weston Park Hospital aims to give cancer patients extra quality time with their loved ones through undertaking pioneering cancer research and providing the very best treatment and care. “The hospital treats thousands of people each year not only from Sheffield, but also from all over South Yorkshire and even beyond. “The Cancer Charity plays a vital role in providing funding, which helps keep the hospital at the very forefront of cancer care. “Supporters can make a real difference to the lives of cancer patients and help give them extra quality time for as little as £3 per month. Knowing that we have regular support means we can plan how we can most benefit the hospital and its patients.” The charity supports a wide-variety of projects at Weston Park Hospital, such as research into different types of cancer including breast, testicular, lung, pregnancy related cancers and skin cancer. Combined with the funding of specialist medical equipment, this gives helps to give cancer patients access to the very latest techniques and treatments. The charity also plays a large part in helping to fund the Cancer Information & Support Centre, which provides advice, guidance and help for anyone affected by cancer, whether it be patients, family members or friends. John Price of Sandygate Road, Sheffield took part in a clinical trial at Weston Park Hospital when he was diagnosed with secondary cancers in 2001. John said: “The experimental drug that was part of the clinical trial I underwent saved my life. I would urge everyone to support the ‘Extra Time’ appeal as I know first hand just how important the work done at the hospital is – I have been given extra quality time with my family which meant I could see my children grow up, and there is simply no better gift than that.” Patients from across the North Trent region – which covers South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire, North Nottinghamshire and North Lincolnshire – are treated under the guidance of experts from Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield. The campaign will be highlighted on www.extratimeappeal.org.uk from Thursday February 23rd onwards, where photos and interviews with some of the football players involved can be seen, along with full details of how to get involved. It is also the charity’s first campaign to link-in with social media - so watch out for updates on Twitter and Facebook.
