Many members may be unaware that this year, 2021, Sheffield United Senior Blades celebrate their 40th birthday. Like many other celebrations and anniversaries, the pandemic has meant we have been unable to do this in our normal manner. So at our 12th October 2021 meeting we will be enjoying a lunch and celebrating our 40th birthday.
Programme Editor, Matthew Young, contacted the Senior Blades media team to ask if we had any memorabilia from our 40 years and fortunately our secretary, Sheila Herring, had all the minute books and a variety of photos from several events in our past. Matthew invited three committee members down to Bramall Lane to find out more about us (regrettably Sheila was unable to join us) and will be doing a couple of features in the matchday programmes about Senior Blades and their history.
During the lockdown, we tried to keep members involved with our quizzes online and in the newsletters. We did this with the assistance of members Dave and Jackie Burkinshaw, Trevor Bishop and Terry Egginton and would like to express our grateful thanks for all their help. It was very much appreciated by the committee and also our members.
Finally, another reminder for members wishing to attend our 40th anniversary celebration lunch on the 12th October 2021. Bookings have to be made seven days before the lunch so please make your booking by Tuesday 5th October 2021 either by contacting Stephen Gibbons on 01335 664560 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
