MOTORPOINT ARENA NEWS - PAGE 4

ʻSHEFFIELD FRINGEʼ SECOND ONLY TO EDINBURGH FOR INDUSTRY CLOUT Sheffield’s position as one of the best springboards in the country for new comedy talent is set to go up a gear next month. Lesser known artists performing at the ‘fringe’ part of the Grin Up North Sheffield Comedy Festival are that keen to make an impression on audiences they are increasingly writing completely new shows solely for their appearance in the city. Keith Carter, who performs at The Lescar on Friday, October 15, has written ‘Sheffield Of Dreams’ specifically for the festival. Al Pitcher, who appears at the same venue on Friday and Saturday, October 8 and 9, will be pounding the streets of Sheffield

with his digital camera immediately prior to his show looking for inspiration to include in a show specifically geared for Sheffield. Sheffield is now seen as only second to Edinburgh in terms of size and clout within the industry – it even advertises on the London Underground. It has successfully attracted four out of the five overall winners from this year’s Edinburgh Comedy Festival to perform in the city next month and is a sign of just how far the event has come in six years. The winners performing in Sheffield are Russell Kane, Josie Long, Sarah Milican and Greg Davies. Other highlights at the ‘Sheffield Fringe’ include Zoe Lyons at

The Lescar on Friday, October 1, and John Scott at the same venue on Saturday, October 16. The sixth year of Grin Up North Sheffield Comedy Festival, which runs from October 1 to 31, boasts even more gigs than last year with tickets for all shows selling faster than ever before. Organisers Scott Barton and Toby Foster are confident of another bumper year, despite the gloomy economic forecasts. Scott Barton said: “Tickets for every single show are selling well and we’re looking forward to another fabulous month. “We’re set to have another multi-million pound impact on everything from restaurants to hotel

spaces in the city for a full month, as well as massive publicity both regionally and nationally. “We’ve worked flat out over the past five years to build the festival into one of the best in the country and it’s really paying off for the city.” The event is once again working closely with Travel South Yorkshire to help encourage festival goers to use public transport. Highlights of October’s festival include:Al Murray, Sean Lock, Sarah Millican, Russell Kane, Dara O’Briain, Stewart Lee, Jimmy Carr, Ross Noble, Rich Hal, Rhod Gilbert, John Scott, Josie Long, Christian Reilly, Mitch Benn, Ardal O’Hanlon , Toby Foster, Tommy Tiernan, Stewart Francis, Zoe Lyons,

Lady Garden/Idiots of Ants, Chris Ramsey, Cabaret Boom Boom, Andrew Bird, Alun Cochrane, Paul Sinha, Last Laugh Lescar Late, Steve Gribbin, The Everly Pregnant Brothers, Nick Revell, Owen O’Neill, Al Pitcher, Paul Zerdin, Bennett Arron, Isy Suttie, Mick Ferry, Dr Phil Hammond, Dan Antopolski, Andrew O’Neill,

Benjamin Crellin, Roger Monkhouse, Last Laugh, Lee Nelson, Keith Carter, John Moloney, Andrew Lawrence, Jo Enright, Robin Ince, Gary Delaney, Jason Cook, Simon Evans, Pierre Hollins, Jamie Sutherland, Wil Hodgson, Ivan Brackenbury, Rob Deering, Greg Davies, Paul Kerensa and more.

Weekly Wit With...

ALBERT SNODGRASS

Give us a push A man is in bed with his wife when they hear a rat-a-tat-tat on the door. He rolls over and looks at his clock, and it’s half past three in the morning. “I’m not getting out of bed at this time”, he thinks, and rolls over. Then a louder knock follows. “Aren’t you going to answer that?” asks his wife. So he drags himself out of bed and goes downstairs. He opens the door to see a man standing there. It doesn’t take him long to realise the man is drunk. “Hi there”, slurs the stranger. “Can you give me a push?” “No, get lost. It’s half past three. I was in bed,” says the man and slams the door. He goes back up to bed and tells his wife what happened. “Dave, that wasn’t very nice of you. Remember that night we broke down in the pouring rain on the way to collect the kids from the baby sitter and you had to knock on that man’s door? What would have happened if he’d told us to get lost?” “But the guy was drunk,” says the husband. “It doesn’t matter,” says the wife. “Go downstairs and help him.” So the husband gets dressed and goes down to help him. He opens the door, and not being able to see the stranger anywhere he shouts,”Hey, do you still want a push?” He hears a voice cry out, “Yeah, please.” Still being unable to see the stranger he shouts, “Where are you?” And the stranger replies,” Over here on your swing” Left in peace One evening a family brings their frail, elderly mother to the local nursing home in Dublin and leaves her as planned, hoping she will be well cared for. The next morning, the nurses bathe her, feed her a tasty breakfast including All Bran and some toast, and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden. She seems OK, but after a while she slowly starts to lean over sideways in her chair. Two attentive nurses immediately rush up to catch her and straighten her up. Again she seems OK, but after a while she starts to tilt to the other side. The nurses rush back and once more bring her back upright. This goes on all morning. Later on the family arrives to see how yer ol’ wan is adjusting to her new home. “So Ma, how is it here? Are they treating you all right?” they ask. “It’s pretty nice,” she replies. “Except them feckers won’t let me fart.”

NOMINATED PREACHER WIG WAM PLUG FOR PRESTIGIOUS LIVE UK AWARDS MEN! BAM! The Manic Street Preachers are back! And they arrive in Sheffield with a show at the O2 Academy on the 6th October in support of their new album ‘Postcards From A Young Man’ The Manics released their debut album, Generation Terrorists in 1992. Their combination of androgynous glam punk imagery, outspoken invective and songs about “culture, alienation, boredom and despair” soon gained them a loyal following and cult status. The band’s later albums retained a leftist politicisation and intellectual lyrical style, while adopting a broader alternative rock sound. Enigmatic lyricist Richey Edwards gained early notoriety by carving the words “4REAL” into his arm with a razor blade (narrowly missing an artery and requiring seventeen stitches) in response to the suggestion that the band were less than authentic. The dark nature of 1994’s The Holy Bible reflected the culmination of Edwards’ instability. Following Edwards’ disappearance, Bradfield, Moore, and Wire persisted with the Manic Street Preachers and went on to gain critical and commercial success, becoming one of Britain’s premier rock bands. This is what the critic’s make of the new album; The Independent:”...surely the Manics’ best album since Everything Must Go” 4/5 The Times: “In 20 more years, this will be the one we’ll be reaching for.” 4/5 The Guardian: “As it plays, you’re struck by the fact that no one else does anything like it: reason enough for the Manic Street Preachers’ continued existence.” 4/5 Q : “Gargantuan melodies and florid elegance… still raging… their flame burns on” 4/5 Uncut “A glam belter full of fire and thunder, gospel choirs and orchestras… extraordinary lyrics” 4/5 NME: “Poignant, joyful, and above all really, really loud” 7/10 Mojo “In their hands grandiose needn’t be a dirty word… distillers of rock n rolls inherent romance” Word: “Feel the love for this wonderfully odd national treasure” Clash “An unashamedly pop record and its chutzpah is staggering. Gospel choirs, soaring strings and choruses you could use for landmarks in a blizzard make this an astonishing listen” 8/10 News of the World “Most groups on their tenth album aren’t still writing songs with the fire of Some Kind of Nothingness” The Fly “Manic Street Preachers are in the form of their life” 4/5 The Quietus “An oasis of certainty, of essential rightness in a world of equivocators and shuffling blowhards” Drowned in Sound “At this barren moment in time, a band like the Manic Street Preachers couldn’t be more relevant if they tried” The Mirror: “…with its good-natured, widescreen, aimingfor-the-skies approach married to lyrics that take stock of what has gone before, Postcards is an album to rally hardcore fans and floating voters alike. Wish you were here?” The Mail “…Postcards is shockingly good.” 4/5 The Sun “Few bands realise a majestic power chord quite like them and a prime example appears on the radio-friendly opening blast ‘(It’s Not War) Just The End Of Love’.” 4/5 Kerrang: “…their trailblazing vision has not only survived, but prospered. This is a terrific album, a rich, sweeping 12-song set that features more potential hit singles than you can swing a pickaxe at” 4/5 This is a gig not to miss……Essential!!

Sheffield’s leading venue, and one of the best of its kind in the whole of the UK, has been nominated in the Live UK awards which take place in London on Thursday 7th October, for the Best Venue Teamwork : Major Club category: www.livemusicawards.co.uk It’s a huge coup for everyone who works behind the scenes at Plug, a three-roomed venue in Sheffield which has evolved into something of a music epicentre for the entire region, this year alone starring everyone from Sasha to Diplo and from Yeasayer to Chase and Status Live. Bringing together world-leading live acts and a huge variety of DJ stars remains an integral part of the club’s ethos, along with providing Sheffield’s 1000s of students with weekly Thursday abandon at Jump Around and keeping things fresh with the launch of brand new weekly clubbing extravaganzas in the Shape of Switch and La Maison, in an environment which keeps crowds flocking back week in and week out. Adele Bailey, one of Plug’s directors, says that, “We’ve had our best summer yet, which is great news as we have managed to build on the success year on year. We started with capacity crowds for the World Cup and haven’t really looked back. July was up 16% on last year, and August 32% up on the previous year, which is huge given the summers are usually quiet. Shuffle has remained a huge night for us, and Jump Around too is packed each and every night. Plus we are really going for it with the live bookings, and the autumn season is looking really strong indeed.” Everyone at Plug is hoping they have made it through to the finals at the prestigious inaugural Live UK awards. It is huge testament to everyone involved at Wig Wam + Silverjet + Support: The Plug how far the operation has evolved, Corporation, Saturday 2nd October, now widely regarded as one of the lead£15.00 adv, Doors 7:00PM, age 14+ ing live and club venues around. A huge team of promoters, DJs, sound engineers, designers, bar staff and everyone from the cleaners to the accountants keep Plug running smoothly, winning plaudits and respect from everyone who performs and everyone who attends. The Live UK awards are indicative of the respect and standing Plug has, keeping Sheffield firmly on the map when it comes to music. Adele adds that, “It’s an exciting time for The warm, mellifluous voice of Paul Heaton often masks the jagged satirical everyone here at Plug and of course for content of his lyrics. From pointed polit- everyone who comes here too, the people ical jabs like “The People Who Grinned of Sheffield and far beyond. We’re hoping Themselves to Death” to darkly comical to build on what we have, and to keep pushing ahead with our bookings, along love stories such as “Something That with our regular free parties at The Forum You Said,” Heaton’s work with the too. There’s so much new good music out Housemartins and the Beautiful South there that we can’t help but want to give has had countless listeners obliviously some of the new blood a chance.” humming along to his biting wit. In the ‘80s, Heaton was the leader of the Housemartins. Like the Smiths, the Housemartins were college radio all-stars in the U.S.; although the group’s jangly riffs and brainy, humorous songs couldn’t draw mainstream acceptance in America, the band shared a portion of the Smiths’ sizable cult of devotees. In 1986, the video for the Housemartins’ “Happy Hour” was selected as a Hip Clip of the Week on MTV; the rollicking single is still a favorite of’80s flashback shows on modern rock stations. After the Housemartins disbanded in the late ‘80s, Heaton then fronted the Beautiful South, a group that mirrored the Housemartins’ no-frills approach. Nevertheless, the Beautiful South expanded Heaton’s musical canvas, exploring jazz and even country influences. While many critics and student-run radio stations in the U.S. continued to laud Heaton’s talent, the Beautiful South became far more successful in England, where they charted several number one albums. The group called it quits in 2007 and Heaton shifted his focus to his solo career. Although Paul’s first solo release was back in 2001 [albeit under the pseudonym Biscuit Boy], it wasn’t until 2008, with the release of The Cross Eyed Rambler, that Heaton started putting out records under his own name. If you thought 80’s style glam rock was dead and buried then think again! Wig Wam is a Norwegian rock band, which is dedicated to Glam rock, and Glam metal and imitates the style of typical American rock bands from the 1980s. Wig Wam come from Norway, more specifically the county of Østfold, and they were founded in 2001. Before their establishment the band members were already active in the music business, playing in bands like Dream Police, Artch, Sha-Boom, Ole Evenrud, Heads’N’ Tails and Alien, or as solo artists. Wig Wam worked hard to get to the top of the national charts, starting their career with numerous live performances across the country, quickly becoming one of Norway’s most popular live bands. Their fan base is known as Wig Wamaniacs. In 2004 the band released its debut album “667 … The Neighbour Of The Beast”, which was also released in Sweden. The band went on to compete in the Norwegian Song Contest, Melodi Grand Prix (which they won the year after with the hit “In My Dreams”). Amongst other things, they covered Mel C.’s no. 1 hit I Turn to You (I kid you not!) The band released their album all over Europe, in a new version called “Hard To Be A Rock’n’Roller…In Kiev” which included “In My Dreams”. Among their musical idols, the band count the groups KISS, Elvis, AC/DC, Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin and Marilyn Monroe! The band are out on tour promoting new album “Non Stop Rock ‘N Roll” So get out those platform boots don the eyeliner and get yourselves down to the Corp on the 2nd October and don’t forget your glitter bombs!!

artist: Robbie & Gary Barlow album: Shame reviews by presley release date: October 4th Well, with the demise in Robbie’s career artist: Linkin Park and the huge rise in Take That’s comealbum: A Thousand Sons back, it was probably inevitable that release date: Out Now

This release somehow disappeared under our radar? Totally my fault, it was released two weeks ago and I somehow missed it. Normally I would think “Hey ho, never mind” and review something else. But this is an important album and I’ll explain why in very simple terms……………it’s incredible! ‘The Catalyst’ was the first single released from this album a month or so ago. On first listening I realised that this was probably one of the best things this band had ever done. It sounded like classic Linkin Park, but they’d developed their sound and put a slightly different twist to it. It’s so important for successful bands to do this I believe. It has the ‘whoa’ backing vocals that I always love because it drags you in and you wanna sing-a-long to them. Then we get to the album. I can tell that this album was written for stadiums. I’m in a band and we write songs imagining what they’ll feel like live, we always do this. This is what is so obvious on this album. The opening two tracks ‘The Requiem’ and ‘The Radiance’ are basically short instrumentals, but one does have a female vocoded voice on it with various vocal samples. It will be without doubt the intro to they’re forthcoming world tour, you can just envisage it, feel its emotion and build up of tension. What an exciting prospect it’ll be. Then the album’s next track goes into the staple Linkin sound and feel, a laid back but emotional rock tune, it is pure Linkin Park. The forth track is the one that makes you gasp! Its a complete curve ball ‘When They Come For Me’ starts with a grinding synth then is quickly followed by tribal drumming that is just plain and simply…………HUGE. An incredible drum sound, one of the best I’ve ever heard. A rap ensues………… now if you’re a regular reader of Drag, then you’ll probably know that I have a bit of a problem with rap. Its not the genre parse, its just that I struggle with the Tinie Tempah’s of this world, people who are doing rap that is stale, is cheap and naff. It’s very dated and I just want people to bring rap into the now. Linkin Park do it with ease, this song alone makes me love rap, it’s done properly and with style and passion. A stunning piece of music. Then we have songs such as ‘Robot Boy’ and ‘Jornada Del Muetro’ that are gonna have people sitting on each others shoulders in a dreamlike state waving their hands to and fro, they have a constant ethereal groove to them, wonderfully emotional pieces of music, almost symphonic in feel. The next single will be ‘Blackout’ this is as hard as f**k, its steady “I’ll fool ya” intro does exactly that, then BAM! A brilliantly done rap again, but one that goes into an almost death metal scream, but unlike a lot of death metal, this is almost commercial, its genius. Rock clubs will have packed dancefloors without a doubt. The album continues with a couple more atmospheric instrumentals that will lift and excite audiences, plus a couple more classic sounding Linkin songs. The album ends with a pure vocal and acoustic guitar number ‘The Messenger’, a beautiful ending to an amazing album. This could well be my album of the year!

they would get back together at some point fairly soon. Robbie is doing the next Take That album and tour. I know I may be a bit of a cynic, but actually the re-kindled friendship does seem genuine. So I was quite looking forward to the material with all five members, but first we’re getting this duet. It is fairly dull stuff. A bit of a soppy balled, but not just that, the whole song is a tad weak and unmemorable. Hopefully the Take That material will be much better…….it needs to be. The video they’ve shot for this is quite funny though, as it’s a parody of the movie ‘Brokeback Mountain, so lots of man love ensues and it does suit this song perfectly.

Weekly Psychic Article by Glynis Allen

EDITORIAL, HOROSCOPES, BEAUTY AND MUCH MORE! - TO ADVERTISE TELEPHONE 0114 276 3633

DRAG QUEENS, RECYCLED DENIM AND GOK WANʼS JEANS! The Jean Genie recycled denim competition came to a glorious finale on 16th September at The Civic, with a Fashion Show and Charity Auction. In March 2010 Raychel Perks took on The Cutlers Challenge; six months to turn a crisp £50 note into as much as possible for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. With stiff competition from supermarkets, banks and other large companies, Raychel decided it would be sensible to go for the award for the Most Creative Idea. The Jean Genie competition came from Raychel’s creativity, love of fashion, recycling and event planning. The idea: to take an item of denim, be creative and revamp or recycle (no limitations!) then donate to the charity for auction at the finale fashion show. A panel of judges* decided on the top items, which were modelled, professionally photographed and made into a 2011 calendar, these are for sale via The Civic and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. The fashion show was a mix of music, dance, fashion and fun with drag queen hosts Lady Bacardi and Miss Fanny Dee, who kept the fast moving show on track. Local crafters PS I Made it showed off their designs on the catwalk and Moo Designs showcased their Autumn/Winter collection. All interspersed with dance from local fitness dance troupe Cabalesque and tap from The Foxy Follies. The show came to a conclusion with a show of the top entries from the Jean Genie competition, finally introducing the fantastic winning entry, a wedding dress made entirely of denim lovingly created by Cheryl Davies and embellished by the student from Out Of Hours Learning, Dodworth. Local model Hannah Ellis walked down the ‘aisle’ with Nick Tudor, who was then stripped by Fanny Dee down to a pair of jeans donated by Gok Wan, during a rendition of ‘It should’ve been me’. Finally the auction of Gok’s jeans and the other entries ensued before announcing the winners and runners up of the competition. The winner was given the original framed fifty pound note and Mall Shopping Vouchers. Organiser of the event Raychel Perks commented This was a fantastic night of fun and frolics; it was exhausting in a fun way, I never stopped running around backstage. This was a team event and I couldn’t have done it without the support of everyone involved. The drag queens held it together beautifully and used their own inimitable tactics to encourage people to dig deep. It was a shame some of the items sold so very cheap, but the overall event raised well over £3250 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and I’m more than happy with that. Raychel will be attending the Award Ceremony for The Cutler’s Challenge on 1st October and is in line for an award for The Most Creative Idea.

AT WADSLEY BRIDGE WMC FIRST CLASS ON 29TH SEPTEMBER AT 6.45PM

What is a Psychic Medium Psychic is just a word to describe a sense which we humans call intuition or coincidence. Another description is sensitive to influences of forces of a nonphysical or supernatural nature. My own interpretation is being able to see, hear, and feel spirit. I know lots of you will have had the Sixth Sense feelings which i will discuss in a later article. There are two kinds of psychic mediums. The first one is a person who will learn the necessary skills of Mediumistic development within a development group. They have little psychic ability but these Next week: What happens in a psychic reading can skills can be learnt. The other is like myself, who have inherited the `Gift` and has a natural Clairvoyance. Some Psychic`s use tools such as Tarot Blessings from Glynis

Hello Everybody, I am the new Psychic-Medium that will be writing a weekly blog on all the paranormal phenomena that is around at the moment. I will cover subjects such as Psychic readings, Ghosts and Spirits, Sixth Sense, Angels, Superstitions, Numerology, Cosmic Ordering or anything that you want to know about. I am an Empathic Medium .which means i have all the senses to connect with spirit. I worked in the NHS for 30yrs then retired. I undertake 1-2-1 readings, Mind, Body and Spirit and Charity events. I hope you will enjoy this weekly blog and if you want anything explaining please email me to psychicglynis@hotmail.com

and Angel cards, Runes and Dowsing are also used to tell the future. Tea leaves used to be popular as did Palm reading. Most Romany Gypsies still do palm readings especially at the coast. You will have heard of Extra Sensory Perception (ESP), anybody can have this. To have the ability to be a Psychic Medium the realm would include the five senses of hearingseeing-taste-touch-smell. This sense covers the phenomenons of... Telepathy: which is mind to mind communication Clairvoyance: the power to see things that aren’t available to anyone else. Precognition: the ability foresee future events. Retrocognition: the ability to see past events. Psychometry: the ability to learn the history of the object. This is just a short explanation of psychic phenomenon in the coming weeks i will explain just one subject. I hope this blog will be entertaining to those of you who want to know a little more about what happens in The Psychic World. Just to clarify there is a very large difference between being psychic and being mediumistic. To be psychic and to have psychic ability is to tune into a person or object on the Earth plane and see their life. To be a medium is to provide a bridge for those who have crossed over.All mediums are psychic but not all psychics are mediums. A bit heavy I know but next article will be much more interesting.

NEW CLASSIC ROCK SHOW FOR REDROAD RADIO 102.4 FM Mercury Managing Editor Andrew Platts will be presenting his new radio show ‘Classic Rock at Redroad’ as we go to press. At one time the UK dominated the world music charts with bands such as Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Led Zeppelin, Genesis etc. 10 years ago there wasn’t a single UK act in the US charts for the first time in 40 years. That doesn’t go to say that there weren’t any good bands or indeed any good song writers but it does go to show that they simply weren’t different enough to capture the imagination of the US music buyer. There has been a small recovery in the last 10 years but I doubt that we will ever get back to where we were. What made British music so different? There were the Beatles and the Stones, of course, who kicked off UK dominance with innovation and energy however the overiding factor was that the record companies trusted the musicians to come

up with the goods. There was a fairly simple formula. Bands formed, rehearsed, gigged, built up a following, wrote songs, made demos, signed a deal, recorded an album. There were no limits and the bands were allowed to basically write and record what came to them, innovating and seeking out new sounds, rhythms and textures helping to develop new instruments along the way such as the synthesizer. The musicians could also play their instruments developing extraordinary degree of expertise and legends such as Jimmy Page, Gary Moore, Jack Bruce, Jeff Beck, Keith Emerson and many more wrote their names in music history. Bands included theatrical effects with nobody more outrageous and inventive than Peter Gabriel of Genesis. UK bands ruled the world, shows got bigger and bigger, albums sold by the millions and then it gradually came to end at the advent of Punk. Record companies handed out contracts and advances to bands that could not write and could not play, album sales plummeted, profits dived and, in the main, mainstream USA didn’t get it. Producers and managers started to dictate to musicians and gradually UK record sales, with a few exceptions, nosedived. The teenagers of the 60’s and 70s that had listend to Classic and Progressive Rock played their albums to their kids and a new audience started to listen and take interest. Surprisingly all of the major bands kept on selling a moderate amount of albums and re-unions started to take place and audiences could hardly wait. Most notable of these was the appearance of Led Zeppelin at the O2 in London, Genesis sold out a world tour with 500000 Italians watching them at a single gig in Rome. This year the High Voltage Festival was a near sellout with bands such as Argent, Uriah Heep, Focus, ZZ Top, Marillion, Wishbone Ash and headliners Emerson Lake and Palmer rolling back the years.

Just a few lines to congratulate One Way for winning The Mercury Best Live Band again for the fourth consecutive year, a brilliant achievement. As well as being a brilliant harmony band Gaz, Bougie, Baz and Chris are four of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet. I would also like to congratulate Tytania for winning the Best newcomer category. I have being very impressed with these lads whenever I have seen them and I am sure they will be challenging One Way for the Best live Band title next year. Your Faithfully Gerard Fielding Hi Readers, My name is Nikki Rogers and I am vocalist from Sheffield. I have worked on the club scene performing at pubs and clubs round Yorkshire for seven years. In September this year I decided I needed a new challenge and part took in a talent competition for aspiring singer songwriters. The competition is called open mic uk and is nationwide. The live final will be held at the O2 arena in London on 15th January at 8pm. There will be celebrity judges and many prizes including investments from record companies, studio time and trips away. I initially auditioned at Sheffield City Hall in September which comprised of singing in front of a panel of judges. I sang get here by Oleta Adams. Shortly after I was given the news that I had made it through to the regional finals again held at Sheffield city hall on Sunday 26th September in the memorial hall. There was 16 competitors and four of the acts including myself made it through to the area final held at Dewsbury city hall on 11th December. I now have a few weeks to decide on a new song sell as many tickets as I can and get as much publicity as possible. Tickets are £7.50 each and the audience get to vote for their favourite two artists and are counted toward the final decision. So far I have been featured on radio stations across Sheffield, on the internet and in different papers. So fingers crossed I can successfully promote myself enough to impress the judges. My next local performances around South Yorkshire including Golden Lion, Alderson Road, Sheffield / Chesters club in Chesterfield / Old Crown in , London Road, Sheffield.

I keep banging the drum about unity, people getting together so here’s a summary of what happened on Monday 20th September-just by getting people together! Venue-Northampton. I opened the meeting at 11.05am with a short speech (for me!) to acquaint the assembled with our purpose-stressing that we observed non smokers rights BUT ours were not being observed. (I have found that thisis the best opener as listeners know straight away that we not just a pro smoking organisation) The call for unity between all factions fighting this ban was unanimously agreed upon and applauded. Intro 1...Barry Slasberg (President SE Midlands WMCIU) Barry gave a marvellously balanced speech all about freedoms and equalities, pointing out that he was a lifetime non smoker but that the smoking ban had seriously affected him re his club. He pledged his support to f2c and the path we are taking. Intro 2...Suhayl Ismail (Director, Midlands Shisha Organisation) Suhayl, though very nervous, brilliantly pinpointed the dire situation shisha bars have been put in - something a good few attendees had failed to take on board. Intro 3...Dr Ruth Cherrington (Snr Lecturer, Culural Consultant) Ruth took us on marvellous tour of the deprivations caused to all walks of life and highlighted many things that we may well have omitted. Excellent speaker indeed and a great asset to f2c. Intro 4...Dave Atherton (f2c Exec, SACLO) Dave gave a short but precise factual account of statistical evidence which basically puts the ASH arguments to bed. Well done Dave-thank you. Chris Heaton Harris answered a ladies question and then advised us (f2c) that we were pushing all the right buttons, making the right presentations but to “watch our language”. This meant that ‘our speak’ needs to be the same as ‘parliamentary speak’ (I might as well bugger off now!) Chris also informed us that we were on course to fit in with Cameron’s “Big Society” (I thought they sold that on street corners!) so obviously we have to make adjustments to the words used etc. Philip Hollobone was equally helpful and has advised us that David Nuttalls “Ten minute Rule Motion” re Pubs & Clubs. smoking ban, needs to be seriously addressed by us and other groups/ organisations. To this end we must immediately start contacting MPs to ask them to support this motion on the 13th October as success will bring this topic straight back into Parliamentary debate. All in all, my view is that today was a more than satisfactory meeting. It has endeared Barry Slasberg to f2c and he wants meetings like this all over the country. Northampton (print/ radio/meeting) seems to have finally lodged in brains that are PROCHOICE not simply pro smoking nutters and are to be taken seriously. Happily, after the meeting I am assured that we have the full support of both MPs. Freedom2choose are making headway, MPs are listening & the CIU have finally found a way to flex their mighty muscles as this intolerable ban continues to eat away at the hospitality sector. There will ben a meeting in your area sometime soon so make sure you are there to voice your disgust at the way you are being treated.

THANK YOU... MAGIC AM WEEKLY COLUMN by Trevor Thomas

…Hardly seems enough to say for all the kind donations for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. We’ve been raising money to go towards the care of children suffering life limiting conditions, who aren’t expected to reach adulthood. Although our target date by which we’ve aimed to reach £25,000 passes on Thursday September 30th, the fund raising work carries on. You can find out more about the appeal by calling our charity Cash for Kids, on 0114 209 1100. Also on air this week, you might have also heard about me getting lost looking for possibly the biggest building in Sheffield. Don’t you find that the bigger the building is, the harder it is to find the entrance? Every week, I deliver a box of Lily’s cream cakes to the staff at one particular workplace taking part in the Magic Word competition. Michael and the team in Concierge at Castle Court got to have a go last Wednesday morning eventually, after he spotted me loitering in the Magic car on their CCTV cameras and trying to get to their front door. Don’t forget, if you’d like to get your workmates some teatime treats, or sticky buns, to accompany your mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack break, just log on to our website at www. magicam.co.uk Next week we’ll also be tracing the history of reggae music, from Bob Marley to UB40, direct from the place where it all originated from, and giving you a chance to go there as well in a unique competition. Now there’s a thought on these cold autumn days. Imagine those unspoiled Caribbean beaches and bright blue skies. Join Dave Campbell broadcasting his afternoon show direct from Jamaica daily from 2.00 to 6.00pm and you could be a winner all next week Monday to Friday here at Magic. Talk to you in the morning.

DOG FEEDING GUIDE

If your reward is a food treat, try to use something healthy such as small slices of carrot. However, if your dog is only interested in less healthy food, such as small pieces of sausage, reduce the amount of Puppies food given in the main meal so that there aren’t too When should a puppy start to eat solid food? many calories on training days. Dog obesity is a big Puppies are usually ready to eat solid food when they problem and causes health problems. are about five weeks old. How often should I feed my puppy? At other times you can show your affection for your Initially, puppies need four meals a day but this can dog in ways other than food. Dogs enjoy games, be reduced to three a day at about 12 weeks. At six walks and affection. You don’t need to use food to months, they can have two meals a day, which can show dogs that you love them. continue for the rest of their life. Your dog will need constant access to fresh, clean Dogs water from a clean bowl. What should I feed my dog? Your dog needs a healthy, balanced diet that meets all their nutritional needs. Feeding a complete, commercial dog food is normally preferable to a homemade diet. It’s not easy to achieve the correct balance of nutrients if you make your dog’s diet yourself. Do dogs of different ages need different food? One of the best ways of making sure you give your dog the necessary nutrients is to feed according to ‘life stage’. This means feeding a different diet depending on whether your dog is a puppy, adult or senior dog, because dogs of different ages have different nutrient requirements. For example, puppies need more calories in their food because they are so energetic. Several leading brands of commercially available dog food offer different foods for different life stages. How much food should I give my dog? Follow the packet feeding guidelines so that you know how much to feed. Weigh the food out to check you’re getting it right. Feeding the right amount of food is important because obesity is the commonest nutritional problem seen by vets and causes health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. How often should I feed my dog? It’s generally best to feed an adult dog twice a day. Avoid feeding your dog immediately before travelling, to avoid travel sickness, or within an hour before or after vigorous exercise as this can lead to a dangerous condition called ’bloat’. What treats can I give my dog? Most dog foods these days are complete, meaning they contain all the nutrients that a dog needs, in the right amounts. If extra food is given, as treats, your dog must do something with the extra calories. If your dog isn’t being exercised enough, the calories will be turned into fat. The only time you should really give food treats is when you are training your dog using rewards.

by Clint Walker

I’ve had a busy few days over the last week or so, I’ve managed to squeeze in a short session of carp fishing which resulted in a scraper double on sweetcorn, and I visited the Midland Game Fair. The venue as usual was the fantastic Weston Park on the Staffordshire/Shropshire border and it’s the first time I’ve had the opportunity to go so I was reallly looking forward to it. I realise it is primarily a game fair, but as an angler, I take an interest in all things which may be associated in any way with country sports or nature and this show promised the lot! We arrived at around 11a.m. which is late by any standards, but we were very plesantly surprised by the lack of traffic queues and parked up within five minutes of getting in. A quick walk to the entrance and then a wander towards the main arena and you begin to see what a comprhensive show this is. We passed the British Air Weapon Target Team as they practiced on a woodland range, (how much are those air rifles?!) then several camps where exhibitors were obviously staying for the duration before entering the trade alleys. I was amazed at the extent of items on display; I’d never considered that rabbit netting was such a complex evolution when twinned with dogs, or that fox calls even sounded like that! Everything we saw or watched was interesting; the dying art of ropework, tannery, basket work using willow branches, geese herding, dog training, even cookery demonstrations using bits of animal I’d never heard of! Over at the angling section, I managed to grab a quick chat with ‘Mr. Realtree’ angling

star Jan Porter who happened to be doing his normal ‘approachable’ bit around his sponsors stand. If you have never met Jan, then should you ever get the chance to say hello, go and say ‘Hi’. Jan is one of the nicest chaps I’ve met so far on the angling scene and is ALWAYS ready for a word or a photo. Also in attendance was the ever popular Bob Nudd; I like to speak to Bob when he isn’t snowed under with members of the public, but this time he was thoroughly busy doing what he does best; entertaining! Watching Bob in action is a great way to learn new skills, so take a few minutes out and watch a master at work! I’m not a ‘fluff chucker’. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a go, but I don’t get on with it, so I’ll leave it to anglers far more skilled than I. I do however appreciate the huge amount of dedication it takes to do it PROPERLY, so it was lovely to sit on the banks of a small pool for an hour with a sandwich and watch the expert Charles Jardine demonstrate the art of casting the fly. He is so good at it that he managed to lay his cast between my feet from 50 yards away! Stunning! A great show, much enjoyed by both of us, even Lucy the black labrador came with us and had fun….. If you have never been to one of the bigger shows, make the effort and I’m sure you will be rewarded. Tight lines, Clint

NEWMARKET CAMBRIDGESHIRE AND LONGCHAMP ARC DE TRIOMPHE WEEKEND HORSE RACING by Timelord

There is almost too much brilliant racing this weekend. Here we have the Newmarket Cambridgeshire meeting that not only has the big handicap but also has some of the big autumn 2yo races, and over in France we have the top European all-age 12 furlong race, the Arc. I shall start at Newmarket on Friday where there are the two Group 1 2yo races: the Adnams Cheveley Park Stakes (for fillies) and the Shadwell Middle Park Stakes (for colts) which are supported by the two Group 3 races: the Sakhee Oh So Sharp Stakes and the Nayef Joel Stakes: 1.25: The Sakhee Oh So Sharp Stakes (7 furlongs): Whisper Louise, who ran really well when landing a Doncaster Nursery handicap under 9 stone 3 lbs last time out, can give Pam Sly a welcome Group 3 success. The Doncaster race was run on good to soft ground, similar to the forecast ground here, and the race time was very good. 1.55: The Nayef Joel Stakes (8 furlongs): The selection is Clive Brittain’s Nideeb. The evergreen trainer is noted for sometimes tilting at windmills with his horses but I reckon that this one has a fair enough chance here. Make no mistake there are plenty of dangers and some unexposed types in opposition, notably Godolphin’s Kingsfort (unbeaten in two career races including a Group 1 success), Penitent, Rainfall and Cityscape. However Nideeb’s last time out performance, when fifth behind Distant Memories in a Windsor Group 3 race, reads quite well in the context of this race. If he runs Kingsfort should be the main danger. 2.30 The Adnams Cheveley Park Stakes (6 furlongs): This has attracted its usual high quality field. My selection is Sir Mark Prescott’s Hooray who I think might be able to out-perform AidanO’Brien’s Misty For Me and Luca Cumani’s Khor Sheed. Misty For Me is the biggest danger in my estimation as she won a Curragh Group 1 last time out and will give the selection a real run for her money. However, Hooray has herself won a Group 2 and a Group 3 on her last two starts, looks to be improving, and might provide better value. 3.05 The Shadwell Middle Park Stakes (6furlongs): To my mind four stand out in the race. Temple Meads ran really well at Newbury last time out when he beat a decent field in the Group2 Mill Reef Stakes and was my suggestion to follow next time out. David Simcock’s Dream Ahead won a Deauville Group 1 race last time out in a very good time and is unbeaten in two starts. The third strong contender is Richard Hannon’s Strong Suit who also has very good form and has recorded the best rating of these in my speed system. The fourth is Approve who finished second to the impressive Saamidd at Doncaster last time out. However, Dream Ahead just about gets the call but the other three should make a real race of it and I would not quibble if any of them were to win. On Saturday at Newmarket there are four races to look at: 1.55 Tattersalls Millions 2yo Fillies Trophy (7 furlongs): Together looks to hold a very good chance. If absent I like (in order): Masaya, then Date With Destiny then Madany. 2.25 Tattersalls Millions 2yo Trophy (7 furlongs): I this one I like the chances of Hughie Morrison’s Pisco Sour. If absent I like (in order): Factum; then Mutayaser, Sergeant Ablett then Male Model. 3.00 The Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes (8 furlongs Group 1): This can go to last year’s winner –

the French trained mare Sahpresa with the dangers looking to be the other French trained filly Liliside and James Fanshawe’s Spacious. Liliside has already won a Group 1 this year and will be a formidable adversary. Spacious would need to step up on what she has achieved so far in her career but the ground should help. 3.40 The Totesport.com Cambridgeshire (Heritage Handicap) (9 furlongs): This is another typically strong renewal of the annual cavalry charge across Newmarket heath. The John Gosden trained pair Nationalism and Taqleed look to hold strong claims, as does Elliptical who ran well last week. However, I particularly like the look of Walter Swinburn’s Absinthe who won a 10 furlong handicap at Windsor last time by an eased down 2 lengths. The race was run in a good time and I think that he represents quite decent value for this at the weights. At Redcar: 2.45 The John Smith’s Redcar Straight Mile Championship Final: This can go to the apprentice ridden Daaweitza. She won last time out and has the more than useful Dale Swift taking off a handy 5lbs. Collateral Damage and Kiwi Bay look best of the rest. 3.20 The Totepool Two-year-old Trophy (Listed) (6 furlongs): This is another very competitive race. Richard Fahey’s Wootton Bassett is unbeaten in four starts and looks to hold a bright chance here. David Evans’ Dingle View, a filly that like a lot, won a Group 3 in Ireland last time out and also has an excellent chance. Geoff Oldroyd’s Ladies Are Forever and Henry Candy’s Codemaster are others with good chances. However, I am taking a bit of a punt with this one but I think that Peter Makin’s Morache Music could go well at a decent price. His last time out run was below par but I think that his earlier form gives him every chance here and he is likely to be a decent price. The Channel 4 coverage is completed by the Epsom 2.05 for which I like (in order): Plaisterer; Ramona Chase; Modeyra; Wiggy Smith. Sunday’s big race is the Arc De Triomphe at Longchamp. For this most competitive of races you need a horse with top class form and one that is in form. I gave a long range suggestion for this race back in June when I fancied the French Derby winner Lope De Vega, who looked as though he was going to be a wonder horse. Unfortunately he has run two poor races on his last starts so I have to pass him over (although he could return to form to confound me). Bekhabad, another French-trained three year old with impeccable credentials, has the recent form in the book and holds a favourite’s chance having won the Group 1 Grand Prix De Paris and the Group 2 Prix Niel on his last two starts. Close behind him on both occasions was Planteur, who also holds respectable chances here. Fame And Glory and Cape Blanco look to be the main Ballydoyle contenders. I like Cape Blanco a lot but the niggling doubt is his run in the French Derby when he finished down the field behind Lope De Vega on soft ground. If he is forgiven that run he holds every chance. Fame And Glory has won his last four races impressively this year (including two Group 1 races) and has to have a more than decent shout. Having said this however,

one horse that simply loves this track at this time of year is my top rated horse, Youmzain, who I am making my value selection to win the race at the fourth time of asking. He has finished second in each of the last three renewals of the race and simply adores it here. This might be his last attempt at the race and his trainer, Mick Channon, will have him spot on for it. Finally I must Mention Vision D’Etat who has a very good speed figure in the book and has a decent each way shout. In the Prix de L’Abbaye on the same card I like Marchand D’Or who is narrowly preferred to the British raider Borderlescott. Over in Ireland on Sunday Tipperary hosts the Group 3 Concorde Stakes at 3.25. Aidan O’Brien’s Steinbeck looks to hold a favourite’s chance here but I also like the chances of Wade Giles, Duff, Croisultan, Choose Me and Jumbajukiba. I find it difficult to separate them but have narrowly selected Choose Me, principally because she is my top rated animal and is a previous course and distance winner. Summary (see text above for reserves in the event of non runners): Friday Newmarket: 1.25 Whisper Louise 1.55 Nideeb 2.30 Hooray 3.05 Dream Ahead Saturday Newmarket; 1.55 Together 2.25 Pisco Sour (Nap) 3.00 Sahpresa 3.40 Absinthe Redcar; 2.45 Daaweitza 3.20 Morache Music Epsom 2.05 Plaisterer Sunday: Longchamp Prix De L’Abbaye: Marchand D’Or Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe: Youmzain Tipperary: 3.25 Choose Me Good luck. Last week’s results: Counting the “reserves” that ran there were 10 races, 8 runners, 4 winners (Polly’s Mark @ 5/2, White Moonstone @ 4/5, Poets Voice @ 9/2 and Laaheb @ 5/6) giving a small profit of £4.63 to a £1 level stake. The prices weren’t great and the win distances were “only just” (they wouldn’t total more than ¼ length), but they all count in the end!

LE FONDRE STRIKE BEATS SPIREITES

MATCH REPORT www.themillers.co.uk Rotherham United produced a confident performance to condemn visitors Chesterfield to their first league defeat of the season and leap frog their local neighbours in the League 2 table. Adam Le Fondre was the Millers’ hero with the only goal of the game on 53 minutes but Rotherham also had goalkeeper Andy Warrington to thank for a string of second half saves. Ronnie Moore made one change from last week’s win at Barnet, with Tom Pope replacing Paul Warne. The visitors started brightly and forced the first corner of the game on five minutes when Drew Talbot’s dangerous cross from the right was headed out by Johnny Mullins. However, it was Tom Newey who had the first shot of the game on seven minutes, but his ambitious long range effort was high and wide of Tommy Lee’s goal. The first effort on target came from Chesterfield after ten minutes, when Talbot headed Danny Whitaker’s corner straight at Andy Warrington. The Millers’ top scorer Le Fondre almost had an opportunity on 12 minutes but Jason Taylor’s pass was blocked by defender Dwayne Mattis. Three minutes later Le Fondre volleyed over the cross bar after being picked out by Nicky Law’s cross from the left. The Millers were starting to get a decent foothold in the game and they missed the best opportunity of the game so far on 16 minutes. Good work by Kevin Ellison on the left created a chance for Danny Harrison but the midfielder couldn’t connect properly and his header went harmlessly wide. The home side continued to press and created another chance two minutes later but Le Fondre could

only fire wide from Tom Pope’s knock down. The Millers continued to have the better share of play and worked the keeper again on 22 minutes, Law and Ellison worked a corner well and the latters delivery found Exodus Geohaghon in space but his header couldn’t beat Lee in the Chesterfield goal. A minute later the home side were almost in again but Mattis’ last ditch tackle stopped Harrison from having a shot. Rotherham continued to create the better chances and skipper Cresswell headed over Geohaghon’s long throw. A minute later, the visitors had keeper Lee to thank for stopping Taylor’s rasping drive and the goalkeeper reacted well to stop Le Fondre getting on the end of the parried shot. Ellison was next to try his luck for the home side on the half hour mark but he saw his goal bound effort blocked by Ford after neat interplay between Le Fondre, Law and Taylor. The Millers continued to have the lions share of possession and Taylor blazed over after 33 minutes when he shot from distance. Ten minutes before half time Jack Lester forced Warrington into a smart save after being put through on goal by Mark Allott. Tom Pope brought the very best out of Tommy Lee on 40 minutes when his fierce, low shot from the edge of the area was expertly turned away low to the keepers left. A minute before half-time and the visitors again had keeper Lee to thank for preventing the Millers taking the lead, this time doing well to stop Ryan Cresswell’s close range header. Chesterfield brought the half to a close by hitting the side netting. Striker Craig Davies easily beat Mullins inside the box but his shot with the outside of his foot didn’t trouble Warrington. The Millers took just four minutes of the second period to have their first chance. A Nicky Law corner resulted in a mad goal mouth scramble and Tommy Lee eventually saved from Cresswell. However, it only took another two

OUT OF THE TRAPS GREYHOUND RACING by Jonny Bond

Sheffield’s Owlerton Stadium has enjoyed a busy period, entertaining the cameras from Sky TV last week, as their latest major greyhound event came to a conclusion with the Molson Coors 3 Steps to Victory Stakes. The competition is now a unique one in the greyhound calendar with heats over one distance (480m), the semi-finals over another (500m) and the final over the longer trip of 660m over a two-week period - and the overall winner Head Iton Jason raised the roof as punters latched on to the chances of Derbyshire-based Steve Race’s dog. He was backed from 7-1 to 7-2 on the day. Live on TV, Steve and his brother Tony thanked Sheffield for putting on the new competition, and it’s hoped the 3 Steps To Victory will become a major event. Supporters of the winner, and no doubt many punters who backed it, celebrated long into the night at the Napoleons Casino next door! With Christmas around the corner, the track is busy preparing some special dates for the rest of the year (www.owlertonstadium.co.uk). With a £1.6m refurbishment of the restaurant completed earlier this year, Owlerton Stadium is fast becoming one of the best party venues in South Yorkshire. A drink, a bite to eat and a dabble on the dogs. The track races five times a week, with evening meetings on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday - and is the third most popular greyhound track in the country now with over 300,000 visitors every year. And it’s schedule of open-races and major events makes it equally as popular with serious greyhound enthusiasts. The best trainers and breeders in the country, not to mention the owners of some of the country’s fastest dogs, use Sheffield on a regular basis and the names Charlie Lister, Mark Wallis and Seamus Cahill regularly take on Sheffield’s own leading trainers, led by Elaine Parker and Barrie Draper. So to some dogs to follow who have raced at Sheffield, but who may appear on the open-race scene nationwide. Look out for them at Owlerton and elsewhere on the betting shop service or on Sky TV’s live greyhound meetings. Bower Hawk (trained by Pat Rosney): a dog in tip-top form who has proved he can win over one lap and six bends, and could star in the upcoming St Leger. Say It Clearly (Diane Henry): made late gains over 660m and could become a marathon star. Bigger Legend (Hayley Keightley): not had a lot of racing, but oozes class. Ran in the Derby earlier this year. Droopys Joyous (Elaine Parker): local Sheffield bitch who has returned from a spell off with lots of promise. Fabulous Mind (Dave Firmager): talented and wellbred bitch. The further they go, the better! Boher Legend (Charlie Lister): another of the legendary trainer’s flying youngsters. Enough said.

minutes for the visitors to have their first opening of the half but Craig Davies could only fire over from the edge of the box. The Millers finally took a deserved lead eight minutes after the break when Adam Le Fondre brilliant lobbed Tommy Lee from just inside the area. The striker was found in space from a Mullins throw-in and he looped the ball first time over Lee to the delight of the home support. On the hour mark, the home side were a whisker away from doubling their advantage when Pope just failed to get on the end of a low cross from Newey. A minute later Ellison tested Lee again but his curling shot was comfortable for the Spireites goalkeeper. On 67 minutes, Pope was again inches away from getting on the end of a cross for the Millers, this time from a Law centre. A minute later the visitors almost grabbed an equaliser but Warrington was equal to Dean Morgan’s powerful drive, brilliantly parrying the winger’s effort round the post. On 75 minutes the Millers created another chance for Le Fondre. Excellent link up play between the impressive Tom Pope and Newey set up the striker but his shot was mis-hit and gathered by Tommy Lee. Three minutes later Rotherham skipper Ryan Cresswell picked up the first booking of the game for a foul on Morgan and from the resulting free kick, the felled played forced another top draw save from Warrington. The experienced keeper dove low to his left to keep out the low shot. The away side piled on the pressure as the game went into the last minutes and the Millers were again grateful to Warrington for keeping them ahead. The stopper producing a superb double save to deny Niven and then the follow up from Davies. The home side created a half chance for themselves on 83 minutes but Le Fondre couldn’t get his shot on target from a tight angle. Ronnie Moore made his first change of the game of 84 minutes, replacing Danny Harrison with Mark Bradley.

8-0 Success Saturday But Steelers Struggle Sunday ICE HOCKEY By Sarah Youle

The Sheffield Steelers gave yet another Scottish team a good thrashing on Saturday, as they sent the Edinburgh Capitals off on the long drive home on the losing end of an 8-0 scoreline. Sheffield fans celebrated at two of their players, team captain Jonathan Phillips and Neil Clark, both scored hat-tricks, Phillips opening the scoring with just 32 seconds on the clock. Joey Talbot doubled the Steelers lead at 11:48, and Phillips scored his second of the night on the power-play at 15:33. Neil Clark added the last goal of the first period less than a minute later, assisted by ex-NHLer Rob Globke and player-coach Ben Simon. The second period was slower, with just one goal completing Jonathan Phillips’ hat-trick for the evening, but the third picked up with three goals for the Steelers. Newly arrived Derek Campbell announced his presence with the Steelers sixth goal, and Neil Clark scored his second and third goals, the second on the power play, and the third a shorthanded goal. On Sunday the Steelers faced a much tougher challenge, in the shape of the Coventry Blaze. The first period was a pretty even display, with both teams taking minor penalties, Sheffield’s first being a bench minor for too many men on the ice, but neither finding the back of the net. Steelers scored first, Ben Simon scoring a powerplay goal at 29:06, however Coventry equalised with two minutes left in the period. In the third period, the visitors ran out of steam and the Blaze stormed ahead, with goals from Weaver, Carlson, and Neil (PP). On Wednesday the Steelers drew 6-6 with the Cardiff Devils, in a Challenge Cup game at Ice Sheffield. The Steelers next game is on Sunday Oct. 3rd, at 4pm.

BLADES DEFEATED IN LOCAL DERBY

MATCH REPORT www.sufc.co.uk The Blades suffered a defeat to Leeds for the first time in 17 years in a feisty Yorkshire derby at Elland Road. All the action was compacted into the final 10 minutes when there was the winning goal, two red cards and the Blades striking the crossbar. A mistake from Stephen Jordan paved the way for Bradley Johnson to give Leeds the lead and soon after Johnny Ertl’s header came back off the crossbar, whilst substitutes Robert Snodgrass and Jamie Ward were both sent off. The Blades made two changes for the short trip up the M1. Nosworthy replaced Morgan, who has a hamstring strain, whilst Quinn took the place of Ward, who dropped to the bench. Recent signings Wright and De Laet, the latter signed on loan from Manchester United, were also amongst Speed’s replacements. Leeds included new loan signing McCartney. It appeared that Leeds-born Blades skipper Montgomery forced the teams to change ends, making the home side attack their Kop in the first half. Leeds conceded two free-kicks in the opening minute to present United with the first chance but Evans whacked his effort into a sturdy wall. The early exchanges, as expected in a derby, were frantic. The home side’s best chance of the opening 15 minutes saw Sam fail to get on the end of a Gradel cross. Nosworthy then misjudged a cross from the left and was helped out by Jordan, who cleared ahead of the lurking Somma. The major threat from the home side was coming from the left wing, particularly Gradel. Following a break, he delivered again on 28 minutes but the onrushing Johnson saw his header tipped around a post by Simonsen. Chances were at a premium for the majority of the first half, although Leeds fans would argue they were the more attacking force. Late on in the period, McCartney was the first to be booked for a foul on Montgomery and from the resulting free-kick, Quinn’s curler was goalbound but plucked out of the air by goalkeeper Higgs. Before the half-time whistle, there was confusion with Leeds thinking they had been awarded a penalty. Referee Taylor appeared to point to the spot following handball by Bartley but one of the assistants was eagled-eyed and noticed that the home side’s Johnson had handled before the Blades defender. Following the break, in which Speed handed a debut to De Laet in place of Calve at right-back, the home side were soon appealing for a penalty once more but the clash between Nosworthy and Becchio was waved away by Mr Taylor, who then had a quiet word with the Leeds striker. Ertl, Montgomery and Quinn all had half chances in the same move on 50 minutes and it was the latter’s last major contribution as he was substituted soon after, replaced by Ward. Cresswell, who had been playing on the right to accommodate Quinn, reverted to the left. Leeds withdrew both of their starting wingers and one of the

replacements, Snodgrass, was booked for not retreating at a free-kick. Like the first half, chances were again at a premium, forcing Evans to test his arm with a 40-yard half-volley, which was wide. It was the last contribution from the Welshman, whose place for the final ten minutes was taken by Yeates. However, it was one of the home side’s substitutions that made a telling contribution in the opening goal on 83 minutes. From a hopeful ball forward, Jordan swung and missed, allowing Snodgrass to progress down the right flank. He got to byline, held off the covering De Laet and pulled back for the onrushing JOHNSON to slide the ball into the empty net. The instigator of the goal, Snodgrass, then turned from hero to villain as he was sent off. Having already been booked, his foul on Britton with two minutes remaining was worthy of a second yellow in the eyes of Mr Taylor. A free-kick and a corner failed to bring the Blades a leveller and four minutes of added time presented hope. Kilkenny was booked for his crude challenge on Ward and the visitors went mightly close to a leveller from the set-piece. Montgomery chipped in, Ertl’s header came back off the crossbar and Cresswell could not get control of the ball before Higgs gathered. The drama continued right to the death when Ward dived in at Kilkenny and was shown a straight red card by referee Taylor, who followed it up with the final whistle moments later. Leeds: Higgs, Bruce, Collins, Gradel (Kilkenny 72), Becchio, Sam (Snodgrass 60), Howson, Johnson, Hughes, Somma (McCormack 76), McCartney. Unused: Brown, Naylor, Faye, Watt. Blades: Simonsen, Jordan, Nosworthy, Montgomery, Ertl, Britton, Evans (Yeates 81), Calve (De Laet 45), Cresswell, Bartley, Quinn (Ward 59). Unused: Bogdanovic, Taylor, Wright, Lowton.

CHENGDU PROMOTED

SUFC NEWS www.sufc.co.uk Chengdu Blades have secured promotion back to the Chinese Super League. Just a year after their relegation, a 3-1 victory over Beijing Baxi at weekend ensures that the top two in the Jia League - Chengdu and Guangzhou - cannot be caught by third-placed Yanbian. Goals from Wang Cun, Harison and Macaba secured the victory over the Beijing side and the remaining three games of the campaign will see Chengdu battling it out with Guangzhou for the title. Meanwhile, over in Hungary, Maltese striker Andre Schembri is making an impression as Ferencvaros returned to winning ways. The 24-year-old netted a hat-trick in the 3-1 success over Vasas to take his tally for the campaign to five in six games. Fradi are now back up to sixth in the table and the victory over Vasas followed an 8-1 League Cup success over Ujbuda. Central Coast Mariners were not in action in Australia’s Hyundai A-League, they return to action on Saturday against North Queensland.

SELF BELIEF WARD JUSTIFIED BID REVERSED GAFFERS REACTION www.sufc.co.uk

Gary Speed pledged to help his players cut out the damaging mistakes that have cost the Blades points during his short tenure following the late loss at Leeds. This time Stephen Jordan’s error with less than ten minutes remaining allowed the home team to capitalise and rip away the point they seemed certain to take back down the M1, leaving Speed visibly shaken but defiant in his defence of the team: “Naturally I am very disappointed with the result because I don’t think that we deserved it, but we can’t keep saying that because nobody is unlucky all the time - we have to do something about it. “Leeds were the better team in the first-half but we were in the second and were going for the win. The game plan worked well because although Simonsen made a good save from Johnson, that was probably their only effort on target apart from the goal and we really restricted their chances. “Having said that, we also have to start creating and accepting more chances if we are to get ourselves up there in contention, although maybe today was down to me because of the way we went about the game.” The dismissals of a player from each side towards the end of the game were deemed harsh by both managers although Jamie Ward’s is potentially the most damaging because it carries a three match suspension: “I have seen the DVD and Jamie never touched him. He wasn’t within a foot of his opponent so we will appeal and anyone seeing it would rescind it. “Neither deserved a red card in my book. Both of Snodgrass’s bookings were harsh and if he hadn’t been sent-off I don’t think Wardy would have been. But I am not blaming the referee for us losing because we were behind before the red cards came out.” The United manager made a tactical switch at the break, bringing on new loanee Ritchie De Laet for Jean Calve and afterwards explained why: “Jean is okay and he has made a good impact for us but he has come from French football and found out how ferocious and physical our game is. He might be in need of a rest and Ritchie came on and did well.” Stephen Quinn got a start at Leeds at the expense of Ward and Speed explained the thinking behind it: “Jamie wasn’t 100% fit because he picked up a strain earlier in the midweek.

SUFC NEWS www.sufc.co.uk

The Blades have reconsidered their decision to appeal Jamie Ward’s red card against Leeds United and are resigned to losing him for three games. In the immediate aftermath of Saturday’s fixture Gary Speed indicated that having seen the DVD there were clear grounds for taking the matter further but he has now decided that the matter is best left alone: “I could see that Jamie didn’t make any contact whatsoever but after studying it again and getting feedback from various sources we didn’t want to risk the appeal being adjudged as being frivolous which would have brought a four game suspension. “I have spoken to the referee’s association and, although they can see where I am coming from, the final decision will be made by a panel which might see things differently.” Ward will miss the fixtures with Nottingham Forest (on Tuesday), Watford and Burnley

BLADES BRING IN DEFENDER SUFC NEWS www.sufc.co.uk

United have moved to restore their defensive resources by bringing in Manchester United’s Ritchie De Laet on a 30 day loan. The 22 year old Belgian International arrived at Old Trafford via Antwerp and Stoke City in January 2009 and made his senior bow five months later. He has so far made six senior starts, was the Reds’ Reserve Player of the Year last season and can play right across the back four. Having lost Chris Morgan with a hamstring injury and Rob Kozluk with a jarred knee this week Gary Speed moved to cover the gap and said: “We need versatile cover in case of further disruption and Ritchie will go straight into our squad at Leeds on Saturday. “I have seen him play loads of times, he’s a good, solid player and I’m very pleased to get him here.”

BLADES NEED TO FIND HAPPY MEDIUM FANS WEEKLY COLUMN by Jon Warburton

It will not have escaped Gary Speed’s attention that his team is currently the lowest scorer in the npower Championship. In recent seasons, the Blades have regularly struggled to find a manageable balance between defensive frugality and attacking potency. At times during Kevin Blackwell’s reign, Sheffield United would go through mean defensive spells, which unfortunately coincided with an inability to convert chances at the other end. But similarly frustrating were the periods during which the ball was hitting the back of the net for the Blades but individual errors and poor defending saw us leaking goals at the same time. In the here and the now you could argue the situation is even worse, in that we are not scoring and at the same time our defense are making too many unforced errors. I would argue that the crux of the problem is that our lack of attacking vigour is putting too much pressure on the defensive line. With just four goals in our first eight games, you would imagine that confidence in our ability to score goals is at an all time low. We need some direction in the final third. Ched Evans, while I retain confidence in his abilities and long term future at the club, can not carry the Blades attacking force alone. And with Richard Cresswell not having as great an impact as he did last season we seriously need to look at how to remedy the situation. I believe we need to revert to a 4-4-2 formation whether home or away, which will hopefully lead to the development of a real strike partnership. This might be a situation in which Evans and Maltese striker Daniel Bogdanovic could work along side each other with some success. As it stands we appear rudderless up top and the resolution of this problem is clearly the first major test of Gary Speed’s managerial career.

THE WAITING GAME SUFC NEWS www.sufc.co.uk

United’s search for the player that could add an extra attacking edge to their play could be put on hold in the short term. Gary Speed has indicated that getting the right target is worth waiting for and although he is pulling out all the stops in terms of watching games and players, a quick solution is unlikely: “I am still looking for a forward in the loan market and have one or two irons in the fire at the moment but nothing is imminent this week. “In fact, with the International break upon us in a couple of weeks that might be the ideal time to address the search properly.”

FOUR DEFEATS ON THE BOUNCE

MATCH REPORT www.swfc.co.uk Sheffield Wednesday suffered their fourth straight defeat on Saturday, going down 1-0 to Southampton at Hillsborough. Lee Barnard’s second half goal proved the difference between two sides who shared billing as title favourites over the summer but failed to produce any kind of promotion spectacle. The Owls huffed and puffed and enjoyed plenty of possession which alas invariably came to little where it mattered in the final third and they were made to pay the price. Alan Irvine made two changes for the visit of the south coasters as left back Daniel Jones started his first league game, while Gary Teale returned to the team on the right flank. The Saints arrived at Hillsborough in a sticky spell of their own with no goals and just one point in their previous five outings but could have taken the lead after just nine minutes. Barnard got in behind the Owls’ defence and only the alert figure of Nicky Weaver prevented the opener, the keeper off his line swiftly to avert the danger. Darren Purse then bravely blocked a fierce drive from Jason Puncheon as Southampton certainly had the better of the early exchanges. The home fans had to wait over 20 minutes to see their side pose a threat when Saints keeper Kelvin Davis was relieved to watch Darren Potter’s free kick from distance curl past the post. James O’Connor headed straight at Davis moments later but Southampton advanced swiftly to the other end of the park, where Barnard was a whisker away from getting something on Rickie Lambert’s low driven cross. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain might have done better after finding space in the area but ballooned over the bar and still Saints looked

the more likely. But it was Wednesday that had the next sight of goal when Neil Mellor capitalised on a slip from Radhi Jaidi to force a diving save from Davis. The next ten minutes towards the interval saw the Owls enjoy a promising spell, winning a string of free kicks in dangerous areas that promised much but delivered little and the first half ended with Weaver to the rescue again, this time springing to his right to deny a crisp header from Lambert. Wednesday lost skipper Purse at the break through injury, so Lewis Buxton switched to centre half while substitute Jon Otsemobor against his former club - came on at right back. And the Owls had a spring in their step after the resumption. Giles Coke warmed the hands of Davis with a pacy shot from outside the area and Irvine’s side did seem to have more confidence going forward. But that promise was promptly undone on the hour. Wednesday lost the ball cheaply 20 yards from goal and Barnard nipped in to clip past Weaver and take full advantage. The pendulum was then largely in the Saints’ favour and substitute Adam Lallana almost doubled the lead with 15 minutes to go, sliding in to meet Oxlade-Chamberlain’s feed only to fall half a yard shy. Marcus Tudgay struck the post with a thumping header before substitute Clinton Morrison went close at the death and that summed up a frustrating afternoon for Wednesday, who face Oldham at Hillsborough on Tuesday night desperately seeking a win to end their current slump. Owls: Weaver, Buxton, Purse (Otsemobor 46), Beevers, Jones, Teale (Miller 72), O’Connor, Potter (Morrison 65), Coke, Tudgay, Mellor Unused substitutes: Jameson, Spurr, Sedgwick, Heffernan Southampton: Davis, Butterfield, Jaidi, Seaborne, Harding, OxladeChamberlain (Dickson 84), Hammond, Schneiderlin, Puncheon (Holmes 90), Barnard (Lallana 72), Lambert Unused substitutes: Bialkowski, Martin, Do Prado, Doble

GAFFERS REACTION www.swfc.co.uk Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine insisted that the players and staff will do all they can in order to bounce back from the defeat against Southampton at Hillsborough on Saturday. Lee Barnard’s second half strike proved to be the difference between the sides, with Irvine insisting things could have easily been a lot different. “Right up until the goal went in I felt quite comfortable,” he explained in his post-match press conference. “I’m not saying we were terrific, but we had come close a couple of times. Marcus Tudgay has hit the post and Kelvin Davis in the Southampton goal has made one or two top saves. “We were feeling that we were going to be the side to go on and win the game. But that didn’t happen. We gave a goal away and after that things just didn’t happen for us.” The result saw the Saints post their first victory under new boss Nigel Adkins and condemned Wednesday to their second home defeat of the season. And according to Irvine, there would be nothing better than a win against Oldham on Tuesday night to turn things back in the club’s favour. He added: “Make no mistake about it, there’s nobody else wanting to turn our form around more than the players and the staff. We’ll be doing everything we can to beat Oldham on Tuesday. “It’s another home game, and we’ve got to focus on getting three points, because we all know they won’t make it easy for us.”

The Owls’ League 1 clash against Huddersfield Town at the Galpharm Stadium has been selected for live coverage on Sky Sports. The game on Monday 3 January 2011 was originally scheduled for a 3.00pm kick-off but has now been brought forward to 12.15pm.

GET ON IT FANS WEEKLY COLUMN by J.C. Snugsville

Due to family commitments Bunsen Bob was unable to attend Saturday’s game and, as he got an absolute earhole bashing from me down the phone as I was leaving Hillsborough he invited me to air my views in this week’s column. This time of year starts to give birth to a few of life’s excuses; slow moving traffic, leaves on the line, icy windscreens, seasonal affective disorder (SAD!!) de dum de da etc etc. And guess what? The world still spins around its axis, day still turns into night and my Jack Russell terrier still insists on taking her biscuits out of her bowl to eat them thus leaving an annoying trail of crumbs around the house. Guess what else? Sheffield Wednesday aren’t the only football club in Yorkshire let alone UEFA to be suffering from shambolic (mis)management at boardroom level. Nor are we the only business in the EEC to have more money in the charity sweet box than the bank account. Neither of these facts however are to blame for the points tally of 0 from the last 12. If you pass the ball backwards the laws of physics tell you you are going to end up nearer your own goal than the one you should be attacking. Passing the ball to the nearest player and then standing still like a petrified schoolboy is not the way to start an attacking move. Repeatedly floating corners to the near post when we don’t even have a man there is not only a sure fire way to waste set pieces and get caught on the break but also astonishingly dumb. To have 3 strikers stood on the half way line (we called it s**tlining at school) not coming back to win the ball when the midfield is over run is not only lazy but infuriating to the fans who ultimately pay the players wages. And these are all nothing whatsoever to do with boardroom problems Mr Irvine, they are indeed training ground borne and should be killed off there too. Even if we had all the money in the world we couldn’t attract premiership players to play in L1; the simple truth is once you’re down at this level you have to play the Carlisles and Brentfords at their own game and grind out some results. And we have to do this with the squad we have, which Mr Irvine has played a big part in assembling this summer, both with his new signings and his support for existing players. Did anyone see the Belfast Derby last night between Glentoran and Linfield? Neither of those two have a penny to rub together but every corner was met with a roar and a song because at the end of the day football is a passionate game and the fans turn up through love of their club. Lets not spend the season getting out sung by south coast teams on our own patch. Lets all get on with it and do our bit.

SPOTLIGHT ON PENISTONE

Penistone lies within the Borough of Barnsley. The town itself has 6,990 inhabitants according to 2000 Mid Year estimates generated by BMBC. Penistone has been an important market town for at least 300 years, when the cattle market was granted a Royal charter in 1699. The arrival of the railway in the area in the mid-nineteenth century allowed some heavy industry into the area, including the Cammell Laird Steel works which has since closed. The Manchester to Sheffield railway line was officially opened in 1845, and it was in this year that the extension to Huddersfield was started. However, the line to Manchester was closed to passenger transport in 1969 and to freight in 1983. The strategic main A628 road to Manchester and A629 to Sheffield and Huddersfield pass close to the town centre. In the past few years, Penistone has had to consider a development programme, due to the growing population. A number of large development organisations have concentrated resources into looking at how to develop Penistone and the surrounding area. This has partly stemmed from the large increase in government resources devoted to developing rural communities.

SPOTLIGHT ON PENISTONE PENISTONE RAILWAY Penistone was formerly a major railway junction, including a depot for engineering trains. Much of the former railway infrastructure has since been removed. The town’s station is still open, but is now only served by Huddersfield-Sheffield trains on the “Penistone Line”. Penistone station was once a well-used interchange with the reputation of being one of the coldest in the country. The town was formerly served by the Woodhead Line which ran between Manchester (Piccadilly), Hadfield and Sheffield (Victoria) via the Woodhead Tunnel. Penistone station was served by express passenger trains on the line. Following major investment (started in 1935 but delayed by World War II), the electrification of the railway was completed in 1954; the line’s power control centre was built adjacent to Penistone station. This building still stands, but has been converted to alternative commercial use. The Woodhead Line through Penistone was the first main line railway in the UK to be electrified, but its once-pioneering 1500 V dc system was ultimately to become non-standard. Penistone station lost its Woodhead Line passenger trains on 5 January 1970, but freight trains (mainly coal trains) continued for a further eleven years. The line was finally (and controversially) closed in 1981 and the track lifted several years later. The route of the old track is now being used as part of the Trans-Pennine Trail.

PAUL SCHOFIELD BUTCHERS Paul has been in the industry 34yrs ever since his school days, He used to work on Saturdays to earn his pocket money. He has been in Penistone 26 years and it is fairly recently that he took over the business in 2004 and I do believe it is his anniversary this week of being the sole owner. After speaking with Paul it is very evident he loves the community in every way which is why he only uses local produce and the local farmers. One thing Paul does try hard for the community as he has free delivery for all especially nursing homes, he also runs a Christmas club and he has The Greedy Pig Roast for special occasions. When in the shop you can get everything you need from eggs to creams and any meats you require and defiantly a service with a smile.
