The club which currently play their home fixtures at the Bright Finance Stadium in Dronfield were the very first football club to formed. Yes, 151 years ago on the 24th October 1857.

Last year on Thursday 18th November, Sheffield played at Bramall Lane against Serie A giants Inter Milan. The worlds greatest player Pele was in attendance with the final scoreline ending up 5:2 to Inter.

Meanwhile they lost 2:0 to Dutch outfit Ajax in a friendly at Bramall Lane in April this year. Sven Goran Eriksson, Sepp Blatter and Michael Vaughan are some of the big names on their membership-drive.

All the congratulations has to go to Sheffield though. Blades Mad would like to wish them a happy birthday and hope they continue to progress strong.
