Claretdale writes asking for more Clarets to join up with South Yorkshire’s only supporters group. If you are anywhere Sheffield, you may want to read on…
The Sheffield Clarets has been informally up and running for about 3-4 years, and we are on the lookout for more ‘members`. Please don`t let the gormless posing above put you off!
We have members who have lived in Burnley and moved to Sheffield, and also members who follow the clarets through the influence of their parents (myself included). From students (ex and present) to the more senior members (well, those 30+).
We are not a formal group (not at present anyway) but just like to meet up for a drink occasionally (Normally at the Devonshire Cat in town, largely down to the real ale!) and also share lifts to home games and look to co-ordinate away travel wherever possible!

We have recently purchased a rather large flag (as you can see above!) and have discussed the possibility of presenting a trophy at the end of season awards.
If any of you out there live in the Sheffield area and are interested in occasional meets to talk about Claret life and/or shared travel to games, please contact us on Sheffieldclarets@hotmail.com. For any students arriving to either Hallam or Uni, It could be a good way to meet new people who have the same major interest – I know it has certainly helped a couple of our current members.
We intend to meet early in October, at the Devonshire Cat, and it would be good to see a few new faces!
Up The Clarets!
