HM THE QUEEN RECOGNISES SOUTH YORKS SCOUTS M.V. MOBILITY 27 Scouts from South Yorkshire have been honoured by HM The Queen and International adventurer Chief Scout Bear Grylls for gaining the Queen’s Scouts Award Record number of 15 young people achieving the award from eXu Explorer Scout Unit, Sheffield Hallam District. The highest number of awardees during a 12 month period from one Unit since the award has been presented First Queen’s Scout from High Green for 60 years First Queen’s Scout from Shiregreen for 35 years HM The Queen and Bear Grylls greeted over 600 new Queen’s Scouts from across the UK and The Commonwealth at Windsor Castle on Sunday

29th April. The event comes at a boom time for Scouting following last week’s announcement of the Movement’s continued membership. Total numbers now exceed 525,000. Significantly, more and more teenagers are becoming Scouts with the Explorer Scouts showing growth of 12% in 2011. The Queen’s Scout Award is the highest honour in Scouting and is awarded for outstanding personal achievement. This honour is achieved by young people aged between 16 and 25 who have completed a range of challenges, which includes service to their community, completed an expedition in wild country, undertook a five-day residential project in an

unfamiliar environment and learnt a new skill or developing an existing talent. Daniel Levick, aged 24 from Shiregreen, Sheffield said “Working towards my Queen’s Scout Award has been a big challenge but lots of fun. It gave me the opportunity to discover new adventures and make new friends. Balancing all the aspects of the award with other commitments and work has been a challenge but extremely exhilarating and rewarding.” Dave Cattell, aged 20 from Ecclesall, Sheffield said “The expedition I completed in the Lake District was the most challenging aspect of the award. The experience further enhanced leadership skills that I had

already gained through Scouting. The team work required to carry out a successful expedition is huge, but the reward when you get to the finishing point is the knowledge that everyone pulled together to overcome difficulties. The skills, memories and friendships I have gained will live with me forever.” Louise Boddie, aged 19 from Ecclesall, Sheffield said “The parade at Windsor was a fantastic occasion and an opportunity to remember all the wonderful experiences and to be recognised for all I’ve achieved through Scouting. To be able to share the day with the amazing friends I have made along the way made it incredibly special.” Chief Scout Bear

Grylls said “All these young people have lived the adventure of a lifetime to achieve their Queen’s Scout Awards, and I admire that spirit so much. They are huge inspirations to all the other Scouts in the UK and I am so pleased that both Scouting has honoured them today. They are amazing.” The Windsor Castle event has been held regularly since 1934 on a Sunday close to St. George’s Day (23rd April). St. George is the Patron Saint of Scouting. Since the Queen’s Scout Award was instigated, over 100,000 of these awards have been presented to young men and women for outstanding personal achievements and service to their local communities.

Weekly Articles, Puzzles, Competitions, Entertainment & Much More

Well known raconteur and wit, Howard Copley, is not home in time to write his weekly roundup which gives me the opportunity to go in to print this week. I’m very pleased to report that certain sections of the events and leisure industry are doing very well indeed and some of the venues we work with are hosting really successful events. Despite the gloom and doom that we see on the news and in the press it seems to be that people can still find the money for a good night out however it’s definitely quality that counts. As readers are well aware we advertise holidays, events, gigs, nights out and literally anything to do with everything that we would prefer to do when we aren’t working. Holidays in the UK, caravanning, motorhomes and holiday parks are doing well however ‘top of the pops’ when it comes to holidays are definitely coach tours. All of our operators are doing well and it’s easy to see why. The vehicles these days are really comfortable and luxurious and I know that the operators take a great deal of care when recommending hotels and resorts. Eastbourne appears to be particularly popular. Last year Christmas bookings were well up on the previous year and even at this early time of the year our venues are starting to look towards advertising and most nights have been planned, or planning is underway. As a working DJ I played at many of these events last year and the customers had a great time enjoying good food and music in top venues. These same venues hold events throughout the year and Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United, Whitley Hall, Tankersley Manor and the wonderful Clumber Park Hotel and Spa are holding great events and showing many venues how to be successful. It’s all about quality. Being a busy DJ gives me a unique insight into the real world of events and entertainment and being Managing Editor of this paper really helps when it comes to advising promoters and venues. I’m fortunate to be able to witness just how successful venues attract customers and from my perspective, and the feedback from our advertisers, business is booming. Just look at

the paper and it gives you a good indicator as to how things are really going. I’m very fortunate to be one of the resident DJs at The Bessemer fun pub on Leopold Street and we play classic oldies form the 60s, 70s and 80s. I generally DJ Saturdays and Dave Hayes is the DJ on Fridays. It took a while for these nights to become established and the previous DJ did a great job before deciding to move on to his own business at the end of last year. The Bessemer is packed every Friday and Saturday and despite other venues opening it remains the most successful fun pub in Sheffield and while customers may have tried the new venues in town from time to time the new formula that Dave and I have developed building on the successes of the past have drawn even bigger and more enthusiastic crowds than ever. If you want a great night our with great music and better value drinks prices than other venues then come and see why so many people choose The Bessemer. So there it is, business is booming and it’s not just wishful thinking or over positive reporting it’s a fact. Just to close; Howard would no doubt want me to mention United and Wednesday. I can’t remember a more closely fought battle for promotion between the city giants and it’s down to the last game, after a dramatic weekend, which now sees Wednesday as favourites for automatic promotion. We need both clubs to go up and we here at The Mercury will certainly be supporting both clubs this weekend and which ever one goes into the playoffs. I was DJ at the United ‘Player of the Year Awards’ last night at Bramall Lane and the spirit and togetherness in the Platinum Suite was a credit to the club and everyone involved with it. Similarly I’ll be at the Wednesday ‘Player of the Year Awards’ next Sunday and if last night was anything to go by it will be a great night. Howard should be back with you next week.

ADAM ANT RETURNS TO SHEFFIELD Adam Ant and The Good, The Mad and The Lovely Posse, embark on a UK tour in November in support of the forthcoming release of his new album ‘Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar In Marrying The Gunners Daughter’ appearing at The Plug in Sheffield on 24th November, Adam’s explosive live show, will not only feature songs from his new solo album but will also include the classic hits, Antmusic, Dog Eat Dog, Goody Two Shoes, Prince Charming, Kings Of The Wild Frontier, and the Ivor Novello, award winning Stand And Deliver. On Thursday, 16th October 1980, millions of living rooms across the UK, were set on fire by the blazing performance on Top of the Pops by Adam and the Ants. After 3 ferocious, minutes of ‘Dog Eat Dog’ the phenomenon immediately began and they would dominate the charts for the following few years with extraordinary success. But this was no ‘overnight success’, Adam Ant had been working hard behind the warpaint and feathers for his moment. It had been the culmination of years of toil; the journey had started at Hornsey College of Art, where Adam had teamed up with some college friends to form the band Bazooka Joe. With Adam on bass guitar, they played the pubs and colleges around London and it was on a cold November night, in 1975, that Adam saw a group that was to change his life forever. The Sex Pistols played their first ever gig, supporting Bazooka Joe, at St Martins College of Art and the explosive punk band, inspired Adam to start something new. He formed The Ants and performed live repeatedly, at many venues including the Vortex and The Roxy before getting a Thursday night residency at the famous Marquee club in London. The band built a huge cult following despite being unpopular with the established music press, and in 1979 they released their debut album, Dirk Wears White Søx, which topped the independent chart. It has been said that if Adam and the Ants had got on television at this time, then they would have ‘made it’ but the moderate success, made the rest of the band despondent and in early 1980, the Ants left Adam, after an offer to work with the former Sex Pistols manager, Malcolm McLaren. With a new sense of freedom and clarity, Adam immediately put his ideas for a new ‘warrior’ sound into practice and within months had put together a fresh band, including two drummers. The band signed a major label deal and recorded the album ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ which became a huge hit, spending 12 weeks at number one and won a ‘Best New Artist’, Brit Award. ‘Antmania’ swept the nation and Adam Ant became one of the most publicised faces in Britain. ‘Stand and Deliver’, hit the number one spot for 5 weeks, winning Adam an Ivor Novello award, ‘Prince Charming’ went straight to number one and a further 12 singles went top 30 . . . at one point, Adam had 8 singles in the top 40 in one week! ‘Goody Two Shoes’ hit the number one spot in the both the UK and Australia. Adam celebrated his continuing success in the United States, with a ‘Best New Artist’ Grammy nomination, in 1982. At a time when videos were the most popular way to promote music, Adam’s charismatic performances in some of the most lavish visuals of the period paved the way for his acting career. His first solo album, ‘Friend or Foe’ continued Adam’s success in the USA, delivering 3 top twenty hits on the Billboard Top 100 and in 1983 he appeared on NBC Television Network’s, ‘Motown 25 Special’, alongside Michael Jackson. Second solo album ‘Strip’ produced the top 5 UK hit ‘Puss in Boots’ but the BBC banned both the video and the song for the follow-up single ‘Strip’. While recording his third solo album ’Vive Le Rock’, with producer Tony Visconti, Adam set out on an acting career by appearing in a theatre production of ‘Entertaining Mr Sloane’ by Joe Orton at The Royal Exchange in Manchester. In 1985 Adam performed ‘Vive Le Rock’ at Live Aid and the next few years were spent concentrating solely on acting in a string of films including Nomads, Love Bites and Slam Dance as well as appearing in several US TV shows such as The Equalizer, Tales from the Crypt and Sledge Hammer! During the 1990’s Adam, again, split his time between acting and music chasing the performing roles whilst returning to the studio to record and release the album, ‘Manners and Physique’, which included the UK top 20 hit, ‘Room at the Top’. The follow up album, Persuasion, remains in limbo without an official release to this day, but in 1994 Adam set about recording ‘Wonderful’, his next album, in London’s Abbey Road studios to be issued the following year along with its self-titled single and the follow up ‘Gotta Be A Sin’ which were accompanied with successful tours of the UK and the United States. It would be twelve years before Adam would play live again, with an acoustic show, in 2006, at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London, where he read extracts from his recently released autobiography Stand & Deliver. The book laid bare Adam’s childhood and his well-documented public mental health battles. In 2008, Adam was presented with the ‘Q Music Icon Award’ placing him alongside fellow recipients Paul McCartney and Bryan Ferry. The Good, the Mad and the Lovely Posse, played to thousands of people last year, and after his recent successful tour of Australia, ‘the BlueBlack Hussar’ is due to appear at many festivals this coming summer, before taking his raw, raucous, raunchy campaign around the UK in November.

Weekly Wit With... ALBERT SNODGRASS

I was in the pub with my girlfriend last night when she said, “Can I ask you a question?” “Sure, babe,” I replied, stroking her hair. “What is it?” She said, “Why are you with me?” I said, “Because I love you.” She said, “I know, but this is the ladies toilets and I’m trying to have a s**t.” I was on for a perfect round of golf yesterday, until the last hole. I walked up to my ball and noticed it was obstructed. So I had a quick look around, bent over and removed it. I was just about to throw it in the bushes, when a voice shouted... “PUT THAT BLOODY WINDMILL BACK.” My wife came in complaining that I never lift a finger around the house. So I did. The middle one. I used to be a fifteen pint a night guy until my doctor told me I had to cut it down by half. So now I’m on fourteen and a half a night. One Sunday morning, a priest wakes up and decides to go golfing. He calls his boss and says that he feels very sick, and won’t be able to go to work. Away up in heaven, Saint Peter sees all this and asks God, “Are you really going to let him get away with this?” “No, I guess not,” says God. The priest drives about five to six hours away, so he doesn’t bump into anyone he knows. The golf course is empty when he gets there. So he takes his first swing, drives the ball 495 yards away and gets a hole in one. Saint Peter watches in disbelief and asks, “Why did you let him do that?” To this God says, “Who’s he going to tell?”

The finer details of situations need careful handling. It’s not a good time to be blasé about the small print for example. You need to read terms and conditions carefully so that you don’t get caught out - especially if you are applying for a loan, credit or store card. Call me for more…

You can find yourself on something of a mission, and that very single minded side of your nature can come to the fore. But this strength could be seen as a weakness by someone else if they feel that you are far too preoccupied with your own needs. Call me now for your in-depth forecast…

Just at the point when you think one relationship cannot get any worse, you can start to understand one another rather better. This may be down to how much you are prepared to listen to one another. A new friend can enter your circle, who you instantly click with. Call for more…

This is a time when the stars are encouraging you to do something that you don’t always have a natural tendency to do, and that is some full on navel gazing. Delving in the depths isn’t every Twin’s cup of tea. However, this is a week when you can benefit, by doing this. Call for more…

If you are feeling below your best, this’d be an excellent week to redress the balance with some early nights, and some really nourishing foods. As Mercury and Saturn clash, trying to do too many things at once, can just drain you. It may be time for a break. Call me for more news…

There is unlikely to be a shortage of offers this week Cancer, as you remain the person with the mostest, when it comes to friendships and popularity. And as Mercury moves into the sector of future plans, this area can sharpen up even more. Call your prediction line for more advice…

Your ruler is set to put the clamp on Mercury this week, and it can be work responsibilities or external pressures which affect your peace of mind. This can see you reach out to friends, in fact a little bit of escapism can be just what you need. Call now for more news and astral advice…

As Mercury moves into Taurus, so your quest for an improvement to your prospects will step up. But the Scorpio Full Moon suggests you may have to show tremendous commitment, and this could mean spending less time chilling out or relaxing at home. Call for more astral advice…

A difference of opinion could affect your peace of mind. Whilst you will refuse to be seen as a pushover, do think about the battles you take on. There may be some that you are better to walk away from. However, this can be a time when family news can be good. Call for more news…

If life has become a little too predictable, be more adventurous. Be it physically or mentally, new sights, sounds and senses can be the perfect way to generate extra spice and excitement in your life. If you really go for it, this can be a truly life changing period for you. Call me for more…

Your ideas can prove to be very lucky, so if you feel one has prospects, run with it. A sibling can cheer you too. The pace of life is set to pick up, but with it your mental energies can soar, and this can help you to be creative when it comes to finding ways to boost your earnings. Call for more...

NEWS & INFORMATION

HEELEY CITY FARM CELEBRATES NEW RARE BREED FARM STATUS

Heeley City Farm is celebrating its new Rare Breeds Farm Park status in true style with a big baby boom over the last couple of weeks. After 18 months of hard work, the farm was awarded the prestigious accolade by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST) in recognition for its tireless work in preserving rare breeds of native farm animals. Lucky and Rosie the farm’s rare breed Large Black pigs were the first to add to the farm’s growing population and are first time parents to a litter of seven piglets. The three males, or boars, from the litter will carry on Dad Lucky’s rare Defender bloodline and when old enough will be sent on to other rare breed centres across the country to ensure the survival of the line. Ruth Dalton, RBST Field Officer for the North said “Heeley City Farm have always had a role in the conservation of some of our rarest farm animals and we are dellighted to welcome them onto our Approved City Farm network.” All the recent births weren’t without drama however. Ewe Bramble, one of several rare breed Soay Sheep at the City Farm, got into difficulty whilst giving birth out in the field as one of her lamb’s legs became wedged in the birth canal preventing it from being born. Luckily, Pre 16 Youth Training Manager Katie Davis was on hand to help out. “Soays are very hardy sheep so difficult births don’t usually happen” explained Sarah Wild one of the farm’s animal workers. “They originate in the outer islands of Scotland and have adapted over hundreds of years to give birth quickly and without fuss in very harsh conditions” Summer the Pygmy goat also gave birth to twin kids, a girl (nanny) and a boy (billy), called Dandelion and Burdock a few hours after Bramble. Whilst not a rare breed, first time Mum Summer is a real character and firm farm favourite. Nationally, the RBST works closely with its members to ensure the continuing survival of at risk farm animals. Its work is essential for educating the public, maintaining diversity and preventing inbred genetic problems and illnesses which could potentially wipe out the relatively few breeds of commercially bred farm animals. The farm is open 10am – 4pm seven days a week for the public to visit the animals.

NEW GUIDANCE TO SPEED UP ACCESS TO THE DRUGS PATIENTS NEED http://mediacentre.dh.gov.uk

Lord Howe announced new guidance on the Cancer Drugs Fund, which will help speed up access to the drugs patients need. It will mean in most cases patients will be able to access drugs within a matter of days of an application being made to the Fund. Health Minister Lord Howe said, “Our priority is to ensure that cancer patients get the drugs their doctors believe are best for them. “Today we have issued new guidance on the Cancer Drugs Fund which will further speed up applications for drugs as they will not normally need to go through the PCT funding processes prior to applying to the Fund. This will ensure patients get the fastest possible access to the drugs they need. “We will also undertake an audit of the Cancer Drugs Fund, which will provide evidence from drugs funded through the Fund for the benefit of wider NHS practice.” The Department has worked with NHS colleagues to review the guidance issued in 2011, taking into account public feedback from cancer charities, to ensure cancer patients are able to better access the drugs they need.

WHY 5 A DAY?

Fruit and vegetables are part of a balanced diet and can help us stay healthy. That’s why it so important that we get enough of them. 5 A DAY highlights the health benefits of getting five 80g portions of fruit and vegetables every day. That’s five portions of fruit and veg altogether, not five portions of each. 5 reasons to get 5 portions Fruit and vegetables taste delicious and there’s so much variety to choose from. They’re a good source of vitamins and minerals, including folate, vitamin C and potassium. They’re an excellent source of dietary fibre, which helps maintain a healthy gut and prevent constipation and other digestion problems. A diet high in fibre can also reduce your risk of bowel cancer. They can help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and some cancers. Fruit and vegetables contribute to a healthy and balanced diet. Fruit and vegetables are also usually low in fat and calories (provided you don’t fry them or roast them in lots of oil). That’s why eating them can help you maintain a healthy weight and keep your heart healthy. 5 A DAY is based on advice from the World Health Organisation, which recommends eating a minimum of 400g of fruit and vegetables a day to lower the risk of serious health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and obesity. To get the most benefit out of your 5 A DAY, your five portions should include a variety of fruit and vegetables. This is because different fruits and vegetables contain different combinations of fibre, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Almost all fruit and vegetables count towards your 5 A DAY. Potatoes and cassava don’t count because they mainly contribute starch to the diet.

COOK REQUIRED Volunteer cook required to run a lunch club every Monday between the hours of 9.30 to 3.00. Must be a good cook and be able to prepare simple meals for the lunch club for up to 20/30 people. Assistance will be given with the serving and washing up. Applicant needs to have up to date Hygiene Certificates and have or be willing to undertake a CRB (Police Check). We can provide full use of a professional kitchen, a warm and friendly environment and reimbursement of travel expenses.

WHAT COUNTS TOWARDS 5 A DAY? The following count towards your 5 A DAY... Fresh fruit and vegetables. Frozen fruit and vegetables. Tinned or canned fruit and vegetables. Buy the ones tinned in natural juice or water, with no added sugar or salt. Dried fruit, such as currants, dates, sultanas and figs. Fruit and vegetables cooked in dishes such as soups, stews or pasta dishes. A glass (150ml) of unsweetened 100% fruit or vegetable juice. Juice counts as a maximum of one portion a day, however much you drink. That’s mainly because juice contains less fibre than whole fruits and vegetables. Smoothies. A smoothie containing all of the edible pulped fruit and/or vegetable may count as more than one portion but this depends on how it’s made. Smoothies count as up to a maximum of two portions per day. Beans and pulses. These only count as one portion a day, no matter how many you eat. That’s because they contain fewer nutrients than other fruits and vegetables. Fruit and veg in convenience foods, such as ready meals and shop-bought pasta

sauces, soups and puddings. Some readymade foods are high in salt, sugar and fat, so only have them occasionally or in small amounts. You can find the salt, sugar and fat content of ready-made foods on the label. Do potatoes count towards 5 A Day? Potatoes are a vegetable, but they don’t count towards your 5 A DAY. Potatoes are classified nutritionally as a starchy food. That’s because the main nutrient in potatoes is starch (carbohydrate). Also, when eaten as part of a meal potatoes are generally used in place of other sources of starch, such as bread, pasta or rice. Other vegetables that don’t count towards your 5 A DAY are yams, cassava and plaintain: they are also usually eaten as starchy foods. However, other root vegetables such as sweet potatoes, parsnips, swedes and turnips do count toward your 5 A DAY, because they are usually eaten in addition to the starchy food part of the meal. While potatoes don’t count towards your 5 A DAY, they do play an important role in your diet. They are a great choice of starchy food, particularly if they are not cooked in too much salt or fat. They are a good source of energy, fibre, B vitamins and potassium. Although potaoes don’t contain much vitamin C compared to other vegetables, in Britain we get a lot of our daily vitamin C from them because we eat so many.

PETS

Anyone planning a weekend getaway this Bank Holiday should remember it’s not just the two-legged members of the family that need to buckle-up: the four-legged ones need to be safely secured as well. “Dogs can cause accidents if they are not secure in the car, as they can distract the driver” warns PDSA Senior Veterinary Surgeon, Sean Wensley. “An unsecured dog can both sustain and cause serious injuries, should you be involved in an accident.” According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), if a car travelling at 30mph crashes containing an unrestrained Border Collie (22kg), the dog would hurtle forward with a force equivalent to a polar bear! PDSA advises owners to secure dogs properly, to ensure the safety of everyone (furry or otherwise) in the car. Pet seat belts or harnesses are ideal for medium or larger sized dogs, which secure the dog’s shoulders, legs, chest and back and attach to the car’s seat belt. Alternatively a dog guard can be fitted to secure your boot. For small dogs and other pets, including cats and small pets, a sturdy pet carrier is an ideal way to keep them safe. Always check that the door is securely fastened before driving, to prevent your pet from escaping and, if possible, secure the carrier in the foot well, ensuring there is enough ventilation around it. To help keep your pets safe while travelling, PDSA has put together some top tips for owners. PDSA’s Top Travel Tips: · Introduce your pet to the car from an early age. Allow your pet to explore the inside of your car in their own time (under supervision). With the car stationary, leave the doors open so they can come and go as they please and reward relaxed behaviour. Gradually build up from this – first, by just turning the engine on, then when they are comfortable with this, by going for a short drive. Building up slowly can help make young pets less nervous about travelling. · Take pets for a walk before the journey. This is a good way to burn off your pet’s excess energy to prevent them from becoming restless. · Always ensure your pet is secured in a car safety harness or pet carrier before setting out on a journey. This will prevent any distractions and will also help keep you, your passengers, and your pet safe from harm in the event of an accident. · Never let dogs lean out of a moving vehicle’s window. Their eyes or nose can be injured by debris or small stones kicked up from the road. Pets have also been known to fall out or be injured by passing vehicles. · Drive steadily. Try not to brake sharply or accelerate too fast as this can be stressful or frightening for your pet. · Make regular stops. This gives your pet a chance to stretch their legs and relieve themselves. Provide plenty of drinking water during breaks, especially during warm weather, and avoid travelling during the hottest parts of the day.

33,000 DRINKERS SIGN PETITION CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale has this week released new national research* showing that with over 300 community locals having permanently shut in just 6 months, crippling beer tax increases by the Government continue to threaten the future of traditional pubs. The news comes as over 33,000 consumers have signed a national e-petition in recent weeks to bring an end to above inflation beer tax increases. CAMRA’s research shows 73% of regular pub goers** support a freeze in beer duty. National research commissioned by CAMRA has found that Britain’s national pub closure rate now stands at 12 pubs per week, and away from Britain’s city centre high streets – where a net loss of just 6 pubs in total has occurred across Britain in 6 months – rural pubs are closing at a net rate of 4 per week, and suburban at 8 per week. With pubs hit by an inflationbusting 42% increase in beer duty since 2008, CAMRA is continuing to rally beer drinkers to sign an e-petition to call an end to above inflation increases in beer tax, thus giving struggling pubs a degree of respite in the current climate- www. camra.org.uk/saveyourpint. With over 33,000 consumers backing the petition, CAMRA is lobbying to secure 100,000 signatures and force a debate in Parliament on an issue causing great damage to

communities across Britain. Mike Benner, CAMRA Chief Executive, said: ‘Whether situated in a small village, city high street, or on the edge of a housing estate, pubs are so central to our society that whole communities can grow around a particular pub. A threat to the future of traditional pubs is therefore also a threat to countless social groups within Britain that thrive because of their local. ‘Unsustainable beer tax increases by the Government are ripping the heart out of community centres, but with over 33,000 consumers having recently signed the beer tax e-petition, beer drinkers and pub goers are actively voicing their discontent. CAMRA is now campaigning to secure 100,000 signatures, which would force Parliament to debate above inflation rises in beer duty.’ CAMRA has also today released new figures showing the worst hit areas of Britain for pub closures. Breaking down some of the largest counties across the country, targeted figures show how in 6 months (September 2011 – March 2012) an area such as Lancashire has lost 68 pubs, whilst the West Midlands has lost 37. A full breakdown of the number of pubs lost in the last 6 months – county by county – can be viewed at www.camra.org.uk/ countypubclosures

MAGIC AM by Trevor Thomas

Well, firstly this week can I say a massive thank you on behalf of the Jane Tomlinson appeal fund and our own Cash for Kids. Sunday was our Magic Peak District Walk to raise valuable money for lots of charities across the region and about 1000 of us braved the April showers. There’s another massive event taking place this Wednesday May 2nd and hearing about it has reminded me about those school days. What were you good at, and were you the sort of person who liked messing about at all? Although I’m by no means a champion swimmer (I squirm at the sight of a puddle!), I do recall probably cowering away while my classmates got in trouble for jumping or belly flopping into the swimming pool. Well, if that was you, there is actually a world championships in the art of “water bombing” taking place at our own Ponds Forge International Sports Centre. You could get that perfect opportunity to show off your skill. There is a serious side to it with proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support I’ll be speaking to one of the organizers on my breakfast show Wednesday morning. Tune us in for details of lots of things that are happening, lots of great prizes, including a month’s worth of cruises that’s underway and the best of the 60s, 70s and more.

AGM PART 2 CLUBHISTORIANS.CO.UK by Ruth Cherrington

Two other areas that figured prominently at April’s CIU AGM were smoking and drinking- activities often linked to clubs. We know that since the smoking ban of 2007, smokers have had to go outside or go home. This has had a marked effect on takings and use of clubs. The ban is viewed as a contributory factor to club closures and was described as ‘a case of good intentions criminally badly implemented.’ The legislation stigmatized ‘that section of the community that enjoys smoking in the full knowledge of the risks involved.’ The CIU Council called upon the Government to listen to organizations such as Save Our Pubs and Clubs and Freedom2Choose and allow for separate smoking rooms. These would have to be well ventilated, with no member of staff having to work in them. They would be purely for smokers and any nonsmokers who wanted to be with their smoking friends. Technology has moved ahead and there are excellent partitions that provide a room without the walls but without the smoke for those on the outside. Clubs would be free to choose for themselves about providing such smoking rooms. The meeting also considered a motion that called upon the Government to cease their active encouragement of the binge drinking culture. A decade ago 65% of alcohol was consumed on trade, in places like clubs. Today 65% of alcohol is consumed at home. A lot of that consumption is before going out so that one drink at a club and the drinker is over the top. The blame is then on the club rather than the supermarket or other retailer. There is tacit acknowledgement amongst local councillors and MPs that supermarkets and cutprice drink outlets feed the binge drinking culture but there is a lack of statistical proof. The facts out on the streets are then ignored and no action taken. Minimum pricing will of course increase the profits of supermarkets. Other than to check the age of the person buying alcohol supermarkets are unable to monitor or control any of the aims of the Licensing Act. Clubs have to have much more regard to the law as people are drinking on the premises. ‘For 150 years working men’s clubs have managed the consumption of alcohol by their members and have an undisputed track record of giving their members what they want in a controlled, safe and enjoyable environment.’ Clubs are largely free of binge drinking because they retain strong elements of selfregulation yet are suffering and closing down. The meeting called upon the Government to recognize the responsible roles that CIU clubs play in society and to support them more.

STEPS 27/04/12 MOTORPOINT ARENA

REVIEW

Words by Katy Evans

‘We’re back!’ O’h God help us…Steps have made a return. Ok ok so shoot us down, we’ve never sold out over twenty arenas across the UK, with ticket sales slipping through vendors hands at an unsightly speed. We’ve never had fourteen consecutive top five singles or achieved the number one position for two of our studio albums, ok ok…but Steps. We thought we had waved goodbye to this ultimate cheese-fastic quartet over twelve years ago…apparently not. Is it just us, or are we really in the very midst of the dreaded ‘revival years?’ It seems music is just not fulfilling enough without a side dish of 90’s classics to enrich us with a delightful portion of horrendous music. Consider if you will, the band in question, Steps. Arguably one of the most successful acts to emerge from the last century, they typified disco anthems of that era with dance routines, chorus chants and up-tempo belters as a reoccurring theme throughout the bands entire back catalogue. This was more that fitting for the nineties yes…but twelve years on, when the most ‘disco’ anthem the chart now harbours is Lady Gaga dancing around in a bondage leotard and “getting’ low” really is the standard dance routine these days. The entire music industry has upped sticks and waved goodbye to teeny-bopper bands in a massive way, with Steps well and truly falling in the cheesy pit of such dated bands. So what about having a good ol’ giggle, what about belting out the classics, what about getting your glad rags on and joining in with a bit of arm dancing action? If this is how you like to spend your Friday evenings, then hell you missed a great show. Pooling together pretty much every song they’ve ever recorded in their four years of being an active musical quintet, we’d forgotten half the tracks the band had released (phewf) but were quickly reminded with strobe lighting, huge acoustics and first rate stage set-ups in full flow throughout the two hour long set. Opening with ‘Loves Got A Hold Of My Heart,’ the entire audience was transported back to the last time Steps played the arena in 1999…and hell everyone was totally loving it. Believe it or believe it not, Steps really don’t do things by halves. Throwing everything into their stage performance, the five piece could quite easily have opened a new sequin retailers and ensured Ellnett will never go out of business…ever. ‘Deeper Shade Of Blue,’ ‘Stomp’ and ‘Sorrow’ not only got the crowds up and dancing, but lifted the mood to an almost unobtainably high level, overwhelmingly reinforcing Steps ‘happy pop’ genre clincher. Closing with ‘Tragedy,’ (we’re pretty sure there’s a joke in there somewhere) although it pains us to say it, Steps were actually surprisingly good…but you just better not repeat it!

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU This weekend eight hopefuls will battle it out to be crowned the People’s Choice, winning a coveted spot as the opening at the Dance World at this year’s Tramlines. On Friday (4 May) eight of the City’s favourite DJs and producers will take on DQ after being chosen by the public to go through to the next round of the Tramlines People’s Choice competition. Thousands of votes have been received and the top eight acts will take to the stage where one will be crowned the winner. The winning DJ will open up for Steel City DJ Toddla T at the Dance World, on Saturday 21 July. Doors open at 10pm and the night runs through until 4am. The eight finalists will play on the same bill as headliners Oris J and Andy H who will also be judging the competition to pick the winning DJ/ Producer. The night is £5 entry and all entry fees will go straight back into the festival. The DJs playing on Friday are: J2H, Autograph, Wheresnorth, Kerr, Trow, DEJEDI, SimonB, Jimmy May Kate Hewett, Head Booker at Tramlines said: “A big part

REVEREND & THE MAKERS PREVIEW 11/05/12 LEADMILL Words by Katy Evans

Sheffield’s very own piece of uniquely local indie pop (minus the annoying haircuts and dodgy coats) Reverend And The Makers are to grace the infamous stages of Sheffield’s Leadmill on 11th May. A group who, although have been off the boil with regards to releasing tracks for a while, have made a triumphant return with a collection of new songs along with an updated image to well and truly smash things up Yorkshire style…and who said Yorkshire pride is dead hey?! Recently sharing the stage with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on their debut arena tour earlier this year, Jon Mcclure and gang have put themselves slap bang in the spot light once again, harbouring the characteristically Northern mentality they’ve always obtained. Shooting to fame in 2007 with the band’s debut album ‘The State Of Things,’ the hugely successful release peaked at number five in the UK album charts after selling over 25,000 units in its first week of release. Tracks ‘Heavy Weight Champion Of The World,’ ‘He Said He Loved Me’ and ‘The Machine’ branded The Rev and co. as one of the UK’s most talked about debut groups, achieving international musical recognition across the globe. In 2009 the five piece released their second studio album, A French Kiss In The Chaos, which following much in the same vein as The State Of Things, allowed for Mcclure to experiment with electronic riffs, huge baseline sections and sweeping rhythmic undertones. Although not reaching the commercial success of the previous, A French Kiss In The Chaos snatched the number nineteen position in the UK album charts and along with a string of singles, once again branded Reverend And The Makers back into the limelight of the current music scene. Although wavering within the realms of political lyrics and underlying messages within tracks, the group have announced they are to release their third studio album on 7th May 2012. Entitled @Reverend_Makers “nothing representing the modern times more than the ‘@’ symbol” according to Mcclure, the release comes as a breath of fresh air for the music industry who have undoubtedly been swamped by manufactured and industry selected acts…thank God for The Reverend! Check out www.leadmill.co.uk for all the latest on upcoming gigs at Sheffield’s Leadmill. of Tramlines has always been about showcasing Sheffield talent and this competition does exactly that. The best part of it is that it is the music lovers of Sheffield who have driven this competition. The People’s Choice top eight will take to the decks at DQ this Friday and judges will pick one final act from each gig to play at Tramlines in July. “This year’s Dance World is going to be epic! What more could you ask for on your music CV than opening up an event that is curated by Toddla T and includes Benga and MC Youngman, Jack Master and Toddla T Sound.” Each finalist will play a half hour set which will be recorded. A panel of judges including the headliners will make their decision based on the performances given on Friday. The People’s Choice DJ winner will be announced next Tuesday (8 May). A second gig, to decide the People’s Choice band finalists, takes place on Saturday 19 May at The Leadmill. Headlined by Wet Nuns to Dead Sons, doors are open at 6:30 and the music will be flowing right on to 11:30. Tickets are £5.00 advance and are available from HMV, The Harley, The Wick at Both Ends, Leadmill Box Office, www.leadmill.co.uk, The Bowery and Sheffield Motorpoint Arena Box Office. All entry fees will go straight back into the festival. Details on how to get tickets to both events are on the Tramlines facebook page at www.facebook.com/tramlines

round-up

by stuart renton It’s all X Factor this week, mainly because there’s so much going on in the star studded world of celebrity crooning. By far the best bit of news has to be that ITV is “furious” because The Voice ran over by a few minutes last week, impacting hugely on the cerebral experience that is Britain’s Got Talent. So, not only did ITV move the show back almost a month to compete with The Voice (so very sporting) they’re now moaning when the shows clash. That’s double standards of epic proportions. If I were a commissioner of BBC, I’d employ all the dirty tricks I could to screw with ITV. I’d have presenter, Holly Willoughby’s jugs popping out at random moments through the last minutes of the show (which would accidentally over run by a half hour due to said ‘wardrobe malfunction’); I’d have on set rows between Tom Jones and anyone who “unforgivably” missed the ‘Sir’ prefix from his name, and I would offer a discount on the TV License for people who promised not to watch ITV that weekend. And, of course, there’s sexual favours for the nation. Let’s not forget that important part of any smear campaign’s arsenal, and I hear there are a few out of work The Only Way is Essex ‘zimbos’ who are prepared to do their part for the country. Well, at least it’d keep them in paid work… Anyway. So The Voice has turned into the X Factor. Who’d’ve thought it? But even worse, it’s turned into a rubbish X Factor with pointless contestants, mindless over exaggeration of their actual abilities, and more focus on the judges than on the actual singing. Which is probably a good thing, as I’ve heard cats doing it in my back garden at two am with more melody than the bunch of random misfits that graced our screens last week! I know it’s supposed to be about the voice, but isn’t it strange how you’ve got the same sob stories designed to pluck at the heart strings? And who’s doing their styling? Louis Spence on crack? (there’s a joke there but I’m not going to make it). At least the X Factor does us the favour of siphoning off the weirdos – so how the hell did Sam Buttery make the final cut? He’s the love child of a union between Christopher Biggins and Timmy Mallet in a paint factory. At least he’s out now, I mean, he’s off the show, after proving unpopular with the public. Can’t think why. Maybe it’s snow blindness from the day-glo shirts he wears. Look at me, look at me, he cries. No thanks, mate. I think I’ll gouge out my eyes with a pencil. It really does have about the same effect. In other news, Kelly Rowland isn’t returning to UK shores for the next series of X Factor. Sources cite this as because she can’t negotiate a deal which suits her, which, in case you don’t speak popstar bullcrap, means Cowell won’t let her get away with taking a few weeks off when she fancies faking a sore throat. Speaking of throat infections, I can’t think who she might have pleasured with her “oral talents” to get a spot on the show in the first place… Which brings me neatly over to Mr Satan himself: Simon Cowell. The ultimate casting couch producer revealed all in his new book, which basically should have been titled: birds wot I have s***ged. It’s a stylish and charming read that, in a nutshell, says how great he is and how amazing his accomplishments, while the rest of us are merely insects in comparison. Well done, Simon, you’re a true inspiration. The only way you can go from here is down, and on that front, I hear Kerry Katona needs a job! But maybe even Simon Cowell wouldn’t stoop that low.

FRIDAYS - DISCO/KARAOKE WITH NICKY SATURDAY 5th MAY - LIVE ENTERTAINMENT BARLOW PROMS 2012 It all seemed such a good idea as a small group of people sat in the pub after a choir rehearsal one night in the Autumn of 2007 blissfully unaware of the hard work it would entail. From that small seed, Barlow Annual Proms, like Topsy, just “growed.” The first concert was performed on 7th June 2008 when a very mixed programme was presented with orchestral arrangements ranging from The William Tell Overture and Ravel’s Bolero to Choral singing of Somewhere over the Rainbow and Tears in Heaven. As has become a tradition, the evening ended in true Last Night of the Proms style with Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory accompanied by a firework spectacle. Building upon the success of the first concert, the second year was a much more structured affair when the “Proms went to War.” It would have been easy to concern ourselves with only 1914 -18 and 1939-45 type music but there have been a loxt of wars over the years with good music connected with them. The evening opened with ‘O Fortuna’ a prayer to the Gods of fate and war, and moved on to include music depicting the Boar War, the War of the Worlds and concluded with the 1812 Overture written to commemorate the defeat of

Napoleon in Russia. The 2010 Proms was a much more lighthearted affair featuring music from well loved films ranging from Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "The Lion King" through to the Hollywood epics "Highlander" and "Armageddon" when we presented "The Magic of the Silver Screen." In the 2011 Concert, we invite you to "Join us after the Break" to hear music featured in popular advertisements including the haunting theme as the young boy pushes his bicycle up the hill to collect his Hovis and even the dreaded “Go Compare” jingle. And so, our 5th Annual Proms is almost here. The show this year is named “Applause, Applause” and features songs and melodies from Musicals. There is no dress code ... please wear whatever you feel comfortable (and warm) in whether that be full evening attire or jeans and a fleece. There is no seating plan but you are welcome to bring tables and chairs or simply to sit on the grass. There is a bar and a catering van but many people like to bring their own food and drink. We would love to see you there. Please join us on the 16th June at the recreation ground in Barlow. For more information and tickets, please visit our website ... www.barlowproms.co.uk or phone us on 07541 234676.

angler’s corner

PARKLANDS POND

DONCASTER

by Clint Walker

My week has been fairly full again, but the highlight for me was to take a relatively inexperienced angler for a day at a local venue to try and catch his first ever pike, and also increase his personal best from a lake on which he has had nothing but blanks... I’ve known Dan for a few months now as a result of some trade links we had developed together, and, as I usually fish alone, it was going to be nice to have some company for a change. Dan had never fished for pike, citing a number of reasons including teeth, but as I had some new Rapala lures to review, we thought we would kill two birds with one stone! After some initial discussions about predator behaviour, likely looking ambush points and matching our intended lure to the resident prey species, Dan had his first cast..... Nothing happened! On the second cast however, Dan was into his first pike, a beautifully marked little snapper of around 4lbs which attacked the lure with some gusto and gave a good account on light tackle. After a short demonstration of how to safely unhook the pike, it was returned and Dan continued with his fishing; just a few casts later and a second fish hit the spreader block before we decided to move on and try to better his carp tally. Moving onto a different pool, Dan was feeling a little apprehensive as Avoca Lake is a bogey venue where he has been unable to hit anything; confidence plays a huge part in my fishing, and I was fairly certain that we could catch despite unsettled weather and plenty of other anglers on the water. We chose to fish into a cool north-westerly wind and place our baits on a gravel bar between two island features. Although we picked up one fish, as the wind dropped it became apparent that the fish were up in the water, so a change to zig rigs seemed appropriate. Zig fishing is another method Dan had never tried, so after explaining the basics, we got the baits back out. Just over an hour later, Dan had a new personal best in the bag! Not a huge fish at just under 12lbs, but perfectly proportioned and full of fight, it was a very welcome addition to the picture album! Over the next couple of hours, we had another five fish, all taken on Pallatrax Jungle pop ups presented at half depth, before a final hour surface fishing. Although the carp were active, they just wouldn’t take mixers confidently, so I set up a light float rig to fish a foot deep with a big lump of bread flake covering a size 12 hook. The final fish of the day followed two minutes later and meant Dan had taken his first ever pike, beaten his pb and tried three new methods all in one day! I know Dan enjoyed it, and do you know, it was probably one of the most enjoyable days I’ve ever had on the bank too! Don’t forget, you were a beginner once, why not spend a day helping someone else to learn what you know? You may be surprised how much fun it is!

by Timelord

It’s the first of the Classics this weekend as Newmarket holds the 2,000 and 1,000 Guineas on Saturday and Sunday. With other good races in support it looks like being a cracking weekend’s action. Saturday’s second Channel 4 televised meeting is Goodwood which also has some decent races on offer. Newmarket: 2.00 Makfi Suffolk Stakes (Handicap), Class 2, 3yo+, 1m 1f: With only about half of the current 32 entries having a jockey’s name against them this field could cut up quite a bit yet. It is a very open a competitive handicap with many having decent chances in my opinion. It is therefore hard to be dogmatic about any one of them but on balance I just about favour the John Dunlop inmate Spanish Duke, who is 1 from 2 on the course and seems to go on any ground. 2.30 Qatar Bloodstock Jockey Club Stakes, Group 2, 4yo+, 1m 4f: If Andre Fabre’s Meandre makes the journey over from France he would be my strong suggestion as the most likely winner. He will like the expected cut in the ground and has top class form from France in his CV, the pinnacle of which is probably his Group 1 Grand Prix de Paris victory last year. However he will not have things easy here as the Melbourne Cup winner Dunaden (also trained in France) looks a tough opponent, along with the second in that race, Red Cadeaux. Another horse that has a strong claim is the John Gosden trained St. Leger winner Masked Marvel. However he finished sixteenth in last year’s Arc (won by Danedream) whereas Meandre finished sixth, some 22 lengths ahead of the Gosden horse. Dunaden is the reserve if the first choice doesn’t make the trip over. 3.10 Qipco 2000 Guineas Stakes, Group 1, 1m: To my mind this is likely to boil down to a fight between the last time out Group race winners

Camelot, Caspar Netscher, French Fifteen, Furner Green, Mandaean, Parish Hall and Trumpet Major. Camelot is a worthy favourite but is too short a price (a best-priced 11/8 currently) to consider seriously. However, I do like the Godolphin colt Mandaean who is also an unbeaten Group 1 winner, handles cut in the ground and is currently 33/1. This could possibly indicate that he will not line up for the race, but if he does do take the hint. Last year’s Group 1 Dewhurst winner, Parish Hall (currently 14/1) also enters the picture strongly as he beat a good field in that race including Power, Most Improved, Bronterre and Trumpet Major. However, if Mandaean is absent my next suggestion is Trumpet Major who, as a course and distance winner last time out, in my opinion also represents better value at 10/1 than the favourite at 11/8. Last time out Trumpet Major won the Craven in a good time for the conditions and looked to have improved over the winter. It could be that Parish Hall has also progressed over the winter and he is not to be dismissed lightly but I just favour the claims of Trumpet Major because he has already had a race and shown that he has come on whereas Parish Hall still has to do so. As previous Group race winners, and winners last time out, Caspar Netscher, French Fifteen and Furner Green also have good chances. Of these three I prefer the chance of French Fifteen (currently 12/1) who again has a Group 1 race win on his CV. To sum up: in my book there are at least six live dangers to the favourite and that makes him a poor value at 11/8. 3.45 Pearl Bloodstock Palace House Stakes, Group 3, 3yo+, 5f: In order of preference I like: Stepper Point; Eton Rifles; Hamish McGonagall; Mayson; Masamah; Amour Propre; and Caledonian Lady. In my view William Muir’s 3yo colt Stepper Point looked to be on an upward curve last year, handles soft ground, and is one of those that should be followed until beaten providing he strips fit enough he should take a deal of beating here. In case of absence Eton Rifles gets the reserve spot. Goodwood: 2.15 Betfred The Bonus King EBF Daisy Warwick Stakes, Listed, Fillies and Mares, 4yo+, 1m 4f: John Gosden’s Polygon heads the shortlist followed by: Tameen; Bolivia; Vita Nova; Qushchi; and Shimmering Surf. She finished only tenth in the Prix des Tourelles last backend but that trace was run at a good lick and there was no disgrace as she was eased after her chance had gone. 3.30 Betfred Mobile Sports Stakes (Handicap), Class 2, 4yo+, 0-105, 1m 6f: In order of preference I like: Taikoo; Harlestone Times; Lyric Street; Four Nations; Spice Fair; and Samsons Son. Taikoo should have too much class and should prevail. Newmarket, Sunday: 3.15 Qipco 1000 Guineas, Group 1, Fillies, 1m: I reckon that the ones to concentrate on are: Discourse; Lightening Pearl; Lyric of Light; Maybe; Moonstone Magic; and The Fugue. Maybe is a worthy favourite as she is an unbeaten Group 1 winner, but again does not represent value at the current 13/8. Lyric of Light and Lightening Pearl also have Group 1 wins to their names and at 8/1 and 20/1 respectively represent much better value. Discourse (7/1) and Moonstone Magic (8/1) also have decent chances while The Fugue is completely unexposed. My suggestion is Lyric of Light who, as an unbeaten Group 1 winner also, is better value than the favourite and I shall have a further “saver” on Lightening Pearl as her 20/1 odds are just too big for what she has achieved. Selection summary: Newmarket, Saturday: 2.00 Spanish Duke 2.30 Meandre 3.10 Mandaean 3.45 Stepper Point Goodwood: 2.15 Polygon 3.30 Taikoo Newmarket, Sunday: 3.15 Lyric of Light and Lightening Pearl Good Luck!


Millers and Rovers News & Reviews 2011/12

local football by Michael Clarke

County Senior League The rain has been the main story in th region regarding amateur football for the past two weeks. The Cup Final in the County Senior League has been twice postponed, but hopefully the sun will start to shine soon, as we wrap up the season. The week started with Penistone Church exiting the S&HCFA Snior Cup at the Semi-Final against Worksop Town. Penistone lost the game narrowly, 3-2 and can now concentrate on the County Senior League Cup Final against Thorpe Hesley. It ahs been another good week for Aqua Force Barnsley, who managed to register two wins. The first came on Monday, when they beat Swinton Station Athletic 4-1 at Kilnhurst Recreation Ground. Then on Saturday they beat Wickersley 3-1 to move only three points behind Frecheville in second, with two games spare. Caribbean Sports were glad to see the end of their campaign. They were beaten 4-1 on Tuesday night by Worsbrough Bridge Athletic Reserves. Caribbean sadly end the season bottom of the league. Last years Premier Division Champions Swallownest Miners Welfare ended the season on high, as they beat second placed Stocksbridge Park Steels Reserves 1-0. Swallownest end the season in third. Also in the Premier Division, Wombwell Main made it three wins in a row. They beat mid-table South Kirkby Colliery 3-1 at Millar’s Walk. There was one more game played last Saturday. It was between Oughtibridge WMSC and Sheffield Athletic. Oughtibridge came out 3-1 winner. Thorpe Hesley will play Penistone Church in

the League Cup Final this weekend. It will hopefully be third time lucky, when the two teams will take to the field at Sandy Lane, Worksop Town FC. The game is a 2pm kick-off, with admission £3 (£2 concessions) plus a free programme. The game has been postponed twice due to the torrential rain that the region has been experiencing.

MILLERS HELD TO A DRAW AT THE RECREATION GROUND

Meadowhall League Bad weather also impended the Meadowhall League’s end to the season. Half of the weeks scheduled fixtures were cancelled. A cup final did take place on though! Rawson Spring retained the Tinsley Trophy on Tuesday night, when they beat fellow Second Division outfit Penistone Church 1-0. The first half was very even, with both temas hitting the woodword. Jack Poulton was on hand in the second-half to volley-in from close range at the back post, and that was enough to settle a tight game in Rawson Spring’s favour. It was a big day on Thursday in Division One. Brunsmeer Abbey pulled three points clear at the top of the league, when they beat Wadsley Bridge WMC 5-1 at HSBC Sports Club. Wesley Hill chipped in wih two goals for Brunsmeer. The bottom two sides, Intake Ball Inn and Beighton magpies also met at Warminster Road. Intake took the points with a 4-1 victory to move four points clear of their opposition. Darryl Parkin scored five goals, as Hackenthorpe Villa heaped the more misery on bottom-of-theleague Mosborough B. Mark Reid also scored twice, with Hackenthorpe registering a fantastic 8-2 win. Elsewhere, Glen Greene and Adam Wragg both scored as Third Division winners Woodhouse Juniors beat second placed Carlton Social 2-1.

Rotherham United were held to a 2-2 draw at the Recreation Ground, despite twice going in front through Gareth Evans and Sam Hoskins. Goalscorer Hoskins was one of the enforced changes for Steve Evans, replacing Lewis Grabban, whilst Mark Bradley came in for the suspended Ryan Cresswell. The Millers made much of the early running, with Evans and Alex Revell both getting early efforts on goal, but unfortunately the latter couldn’t hit the target, and Evans’ effort was comfortable for Jamie Young. The deadlock was eventually broken nine minutes in, when a good break from the visitors resulted in Evans being brought down in the area. The Millers winger dusted himself off before sending the ‘keeper the wrong way from the penalty spot to give Rotherham the lead. The Shots struggled to get back into the game, but as the clock hit 19 minutes they were all square thanks to Peter Vincenti who poked home after good work in the area by Guy Madjo. At the other end, Jason Taylor saw a header cleared off the line, and Revell fired over from the edge of the area after some good work by Danny Schofield. On the half hour mark, the Millers were back in front thanks to a moment of magic by Hoskins, making his first league start. He received the ball on the right hand side of the area, and with few options available to him, executed a perfect chip over Young and into the net via the far post. The home side finally started to look dangerous as the half came to a close, but it was Revell just one

DEFEAT FOR ROVERS ROVERS NEWS www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk

The Rovers made one change to their starting line-up, with Habib Beye replacing Adam Lockwood in central defence. It was an unusual starting time for everyone, with the kick off being at half past twelve for Rovers last game of the season and their last game, for now, in the Championship. The Rovers defended the South Stand end in the first half. The visitors got the game underway but the Rovers got the first strike at goal in the second minute when good play on their right by Hayter, Oster and Coppinger set up the latter for a crack at goal but he was wide of the far post. The Ipswich response was to go down to the Rovers end where Martinhit a low shot from the edge of the penalty area that had Woods diving to his right to push round the post. From the corner kick, Delaney shot well wide. Another corner to the visitors a couple of minutes later came out to Edwards but his effort from distance was high and wide. At the other end the Rovers won a corner but the keeper caught it under challenge. Ipswich won another corner which was punched away by Woods but back came the visitors to get another corner which SMITH headed in at the far post after 10 minutes. Continuing to press Drury, for Ipswich, shot well wide from 30yards. Then, on the quarter hour, following a corner Delaney headed against the underside of the bar and the ball bouncing down and away. Minutes later and good play by Robertand coppinger led to Coppinger crossing for Hayter to to volley over the bar from close range. In the 21st minute a poor clearance by Woods went straight to Martin, who took it on but as he shot Woods stuck a leg and deflected it for a corner. Ipswich were having the better of the play at this stage and went further ahead in the 29th minute when a rasping shot from 30yards on the left from STEVENSON hit the underside of the bar, bounced down and came out, Goal said the assistant and the referee pointed to the centre spot. Past the half hour

minute before half-time whose volley from the edge of the area had to be scooped over by the goalkeeper. The second half didn’t begin with the same tenacity as the first, and it wasn’t until 56 minutes when the first opportunity arose. Unfortunately for the Millers it was also the equalising goal for the visitors; Vincenti stood a ball up to the far post where Madjo headed home from underneath the cross bar. Despite being pegged back twice, Rotherham continued to attack with Evans and Pringle both making bursts into the box to no avail before finally finding the net. A scramble on the line eventually saw Hoskins head home from close range only to see the linesman raise his flag very late and rule out his second of the game. The home side began to gain momentum, and their quest for a third was made much easier when Tom Newey was dismissed in the 81st minute. However, substitute Jordan Roberts also picked up a second booking just three minutes later to also cut short his afternoon, and level the sides back up. With the clock ticking down, Shots substitute Reece Connolly missed two glorious chances in injury time to mean the the Millers final away game of the season ended all square.

and the Rovers got their game going at last. A long crossfield pass from Husband on the left was headed back into the middle by Coppinger at the farpost for Hayter to get a shot on target but Lee-Barrett saved comfortably. a minute later, the 34th, Gilliett, on the Rovers left, crossed to the middle where ROBERT stabbed in to put the Rovers on the scoresheet. Three minutes later, the same combination resulted in Robert heading in but the assistant had his flag up for offside. The Rovers pressed on, with Robert, playing down the middle at this point, having a shot saved. However, Ipswich were still dangerous and as time ran down to the break, Chopra had a shot saved by Woods, who then was in action again in added time to tip a Drury effort from 20yards round a post. Getting the second half underway the Rovers were straight on to the attack with Coppinger on the right. He was tripped but he quickly took the free kick and put it to the far post where Beye, racing in, deflected it the wrong side of the post. Coppinger then had another free kick punched away by the Ipswich keeper and in the 55th minute Oster fed Robert on the left but his cross was steered over the bar by Hayter. Just before the hour, Martin put wide from the edge of the penalty area. Past the hour and the substitutions came thick and fast. Play was mostly in midfield at this stage with the Rovers perhaps shading possession but unable to score. Then, in the 78th minute, Beye was adjudged to have brought down Scotland just inside the area, with the referee pointing to the penalty spot. SCOTLAND took the kick and slotted past Gary Woods. This put the visitors in the ascendancy and they controlled the game until the 91st minute when a free kick from Martin Woods on the Rovers right was swept in at the near post by BEYE. A good game to end the season on despite going down to a good Ipswich side.

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY NEWS 2011/12 OWLS EDGE BEES CLASH MATCH REPORT www.swfc.co.uk

Sheffield Wednesday ensured the battle for automatic promotion will go down to the final day of the season after a 2-1 win at Brentford on Saturday. Keith Treacy struck a fine free kick in the first half from an almost impossible angle before Clayton Donaldson levelled for the hosts from the spot soon after the interval. But five minutes after the Bees restored parity, Miguel Llera nodded the Owls back into the lead in front of the sold out following from Sheffield. Owls boss Dave Jones made one change from lastweekend’s 2-1 triumph over Carlisle, with Treacy starting in place of Jermaine Johnson. Wednesday made an attacking start in the pouring rain at Griffin Park as Llera saw an early header comfortably saved by Simon Moore. Brentford, who needed a win to keep alive their slim hopes of reaching the play-offs, quickly launched an attack of their own. Donaldson showed neat skill from the wide left position before cutting back for Jonathan Douglas who struck wide from 20 yards. The home side then created a golden chance to take an early lead on ten minutes. Jake Bidwell whipped in a dangerous ball from the left but Karleigh Osborne couldn’t get the ball out of his feet from four yards, as Stephen Bywater was able to gather. The Bees were looking lively midway through the first half and Bywater was forced into making a key save from Harry Forrester, who skipped past two challenges before shooting on target from close range. The attacking edge was with Brentford who almost took the lead once again but for the width of the crossbar.

Another fine ball in from Forrester landed perfectly for Douglas, whose effort cannoned back off the upright before Wednesday took the lead from the very next attack. While everyone in the Bees’ penalty area expected a cross into the area, Treacy had other ideas and managed to curl his strike into the bottom corner from an almost impossible angle. Sam Saunders tested Bywater early in the second half but the Owls keeper saved comfortably. And Bywater was to thank again for preserving the Owls’ one-goal advantage, after producing a top drawer diving save to tip Donaldson’s strike wide of the target. Then disaster struck for Wednesday when Mark Beevers’ challenge on Donaldson resulted in a penalty for the Bees, and the same man stepped up to convert the spot kick. But undeterred from that set back, the Owls restored their advantage through in-form stopper Llera. The Spaniard met Treacy’s flag kick with a well-timed header that nestled into the back of the net to delight of the 1,800 Wednesday contingent behind the goal. Saunders’ free kick from the left dangerously flashed across goal before Bywater denied Toumani Diagouraga one on one, closing down the angle for the big midfield man. The Owls had to see out four minutes of added time to hold on to the hugely significant victory at Griffin Park - and it was mission complete as the automatic promotion battle will be decided on the final day of the season. Brentford: Moore, Balkestein (Bean 81), Saunders, Douglas, Donaldson, Logan (Norris 81), Forrester (McGinn75), Diagouraga, Osbourne, Bidwell, Dean Unused substitutes: Thompson, Legge Owls: Bywater, Buxton, Batth, Llera, Beevers (D Jones 64), Antonio (J Johnson 67), Lines, Semedo, Treacy (O’Grady 82), Ranger, Madine Unused substitutes: Weaver, Lowe

JONES PRAISES OWLS CHARACTER GAFFERS REACTION www.swfc.co.uk

Dave Jones hailed the character of his Owls’ side following the vital 2-1 win over Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday. Goals from Keith Treacy and Miguel Llera sealed the travelling triumph that ensured the race for the second automatic promotion slot goes to the last day, when Wednesday host Wycombe while city rivals United travel to Exeter. It was a far from a vintage performance from the Owls in West London but Jones concurred that the result was all that mattered. He said: “It’s all about results at this stage of the season and we got the result today. It wasn’t our best performance and

you could see that we could have played better, but you could also say that the players showed tremendous character. “There are a lot of tired players in that dressing room because they have given absolutely everything. “It now goes to the final day and that is all we could have hoped for. I played for Everton against Liverpool in an FA Cup semi final at Hillsborough in front of 60,000. “There will be 37,000 packed into Hillsborough next Saturday and I’m sure the noise will be the same.” Jones, while full of praise for the resolute nature of his players at Brentford, picked out Stephen Bywater for special mention after the veteran keeper made an outstanding second half save from Clayton Donaldson. Bywater also thwarted Toumani Diagouraga with a sharp one on one save to help Wednesday over the line. Jones said: “Stephen was outstanding for us today. The save he made from Donaldson was world class. “But I am proud of them all. They have taken this to the last and I don’t think anyone could have asked for anything more.”

SHEFFIELD UNITED NEWS 2011/12

BLADES ONSLAUGHT FAILS TO SECURE WIN MATCH REPORT www.sufc.co.uk

The Lane’s biggest crowd of the season and a new kit failed to inspire United to victory in the final home game of the regular season. The necessary victory did not materialise, despite fighting back from a two goal deficit. Joel Byrom and Scott Laird gave Stevenage the lead before Richard Cresswell and Matt Lowton gave United a fighting chance. The vast majority of the 30,000+ crowd willed United on late on but a late goal was not forthcoming. O’Halloran was given his full debut in the live Sky clash, replacing fellow loanee, Hoskins, who suffered a hernia problem in the previous match. Taylor also took over at left back from Hill, who collected a hamstring injury at MK Dons. The incoming pair were like-forlike changes as boss Wilson continued with the 4-4-2 formation. The experience of Ertl and Cresswell was added to the bench. Within a minute United’s front two, O’Halloran and Porter, connected with Quinn’s cross but neither could direct the ball past goalkeeper Day, whilst Quinn also whipped in a couple of further dangerous deliveries in the opening 15 minutes but Porter could not connect. Stevenage, for their part, won the first corner and Byrom fired well wide, whilst a drilled effort from Freeman was

a foot over the crossbar. Williamson half-volleyed over but chances for the visitors continued with Shroot shooting into the side-netting after a probing run by Freeman, who, moments later saw his shot deflected just wide with Simonsen at full stretch. Quinn made a hash of trying to turn home a Lowton cross before it got worse for United when Stevenage took the lead after Williamson squandered possession on 31 minutes. Freeman strided across the halfway line, played down the right flank to Agyemang, whose cross was met by a combination of Maguire and BYROM, with the ball spinning into the corner of Simonsen’s net. Two minutes later Simonsen pushed away a Bostwick shot from distance as Stevenage looked for a second. The remainder of the half saw United on top, without really troubling Day. The closest the Blades came was a Williamson freekick, which Maguire met, but the effort was turned away for a corner, from which Doyle lashed over. No changes were made at the interval but United’s aim to secure a win was made much harder when Stevenage doubled their lead on 47 minutes. Buildup on the left ended with LAIRD’s shot deflecting off Lowton to deceive Simonsen and delight the away fans in the Bramall Lane stand. United’s attempts to get back in the game were hampered by a string of stray passes and chief Wilson made a double change, introducing Cresswell and Flynn for Porter and Quinn. From a Williamson free-kick, which Maguire nodded back across goal, a Collins header was deflected wide, whilst Williamson pulled a shot wide with his left-foot. The substitutes took less than 10 minutes to make an impact, combining as United pulled a goal back. Doyle played the ball left for Flynn, whose cross was met and beautifully placed into the corner of the net by CRESSWELL. Within moments the advantage could been back to two following a breakaway. Freeman carried the ball 50 yards, beating Doyle in the process, but after laying off, Shroot’s effort was deflected over. The action was, by now, end to end, with the visitors still looking dangerous on the break. O’Halloran was crowded out as he attempted to get a shot away inside the box, whilst a series of crosses, set-pieces and passes were repelled by the visitors. Beattie was thrown on as the last

change, Taylor was replaced and Doyle slotted into left-back. In the final ten minutes, Doyle’s long ball was flicked on by Beattie but O’Halloran scuffed his shot, whilst McDonald fired wide soon after but a second goal gave the Blades impetus. On 85 minutes, Maguire’s long diagonal ball was headed down by Beattie for the advanced LOWTON to volley into the roof of the net. The goal ensured the remaining minutes, which was five plus four additional, was like the alamo with the Blades peppering the Stevenage goal. In those nine minutes, McDonald fired over from distance, Beattie’s shot was kicked away by Day, another McDonald shot was saved, Beattie was off target again and Lowton’s shot was blocked with the ball falling nicely for Day. However, it proved not to be enough as the visitors held on and United had to settle for a point. Blades: Simonsen, Lowton, Doyle, Williamson, Collins, Taylor (Beattie 74), Maguire, Porter (Cresswell 54), McDonald, Quinn (Flynn 54), O’Halloran. Unused: Ertl, Howard. Stevenage: Day, Wilson, Laird, Ashton, Byrom, Roberts, Freeman (Long 84), Bostwick, Agyemang (Beardsley 78), Lascelles, Shroot (Mousinho 74). Unused: Julian, Reid.

GAFFERʼS ADMIRATION FOR STEVENAGE SUFC NEWS www.sufc.co.uk

Danny Wilson is full of admiration for Saturday’s visitors, Stevenage, but insists he is only concerned with his own team’s performance in front of the live Sky cameras. The Blades boss has praised how the Broadhall Way outfit have kept in the hunt for a play-off spot in League One despite losing manager Graham Westley to divisional rivals Preston North End earlier this year and Wilson thinks their current boss deserves a lot of the plaudits: “Sometimes a new manager can go into a job and try and fix something that isn’t broken. Stevenage were successful under Graham (Westley), winning promotion twice and then starting well this season. “They have offered more than they get credit for, but they still have a real doggedness about them. “They are well-organised and disciplined, as you would expect, and Gary (Smith) has just tweaked one or two things to edge them on a bit more. “They are a good side and have continued their momentum after winning the League Two play-off final last season. “There are no easy games in this division I have said that every week, there are some good players in this league and everyone has players capable of changing games and Stevenage are no different, so, as always, we are respectful to them. “When Graham left people perhaps thought it would have an adverse affect on their results but it didn’t. They have stayed in contention throughout and not lost any momentum. “They have won the last three on the bounce, to give them a real chance of claiming sixth spot, but Saturday is about how we perform, if we are at our best on the day there are very few teams that can hold us and we believe in our ability.” Ahead of the weekend United know two victories would secure an instant return to the Championship and Wilson says that remains the players’ sole focus: “If the opportunity of winning promotion isn’t an incentive then I don’t know what is and the lads have looked ever so sharp and ‘on it’ in training all week. “It is our hands and that is a great position to be in, we are determined to push ourselves over the finishing line as soon as possible. If we win on Saturday we have a fantastic chance with one game remaining.”

LANE FINAL POSTPONED SUFC NEWS www.sufc.co.uk

Monday night’s Taylor&Emmet Sheffield and Hallamshire Sunday Senior Challenge Cup final, scheduled for Bramall Lane, has been postponed due to a waterlogged playing surface. It has been the wettest April since records began and the last few days or so has seen consistent rain on the Bramall Lane pitch, with certain areas sodden. It is anticipated that the game - between Athersley Recreation and Swinton WMC - will be rescheduled for May. Please keep checking www.sheffieldfa. com for more updates.

BLADES FANS UNITE FOR SEASON FINALE Live Beamback of Saturdayʼs Game to be shown at Bramall Lane Bramall Lane will stage a beam back of Saturday's final game of the regular League One season... you could watch it for a fiver. With only 1,700 tickets available to Unitedites for the game at Exeter, the Blades have responded to requests from supporters to screen the game at S2. Live pictures from Devon will be beamed to three big screens that will be positioned in front of the John Street Stand at Bramall Lane. The Blades have reduced ticket prices to just £5 for all seats.

Danny Wilson has welcomed the plan to screen the game at Bramall Lane, saying: "I think it is a great decision by the club to give fans the opportunity to watch Saturday's important fixture. Exeter have accommodated us as much as possible, but our fans have turned out in tremendous numbers recently and it is only fair that we try and look after everyone who wants to watch the game. "There were almost 30,000 Blades inside the Lane for Saturday's game against Stevenage and, no doubt, many, who can't get a ticket

for the game, will want to watch the action as it unfolds." Tickets for the beam back will be available in the John Street stand, priced at £5, from Tuesday morning. Tickets will be available in person, over the telephone on 0871 995 1889 and online at www.sufc. talent-sport.co.uk Limited parking spaces will be available to purchase on the day in the Cherry Street and Shoreham Street car parks. Concourse bars inside Bramall Lane will be open from 1.30pm with happy hour prices available until 2.30pm, whilst United's Commercial Department are also offering special hospitality packages to watch so feel free to contact the club if you wish to take advantage of this on 0871 663 2462 or bladeshospitality@sufc. co.uk
