We welcome Sheffield United to Oakwell on Sunday in our first South Yorkshire derby of the season.

That means there’s another issue of GROVE STREET available for you to read – and it’s a special purple themed edition for this fixture as we play host to Weston Park Cancer Charity.

Our cover star this weekend is none other than club captain, CAULEY WOODROW, who endorsed the Together At Every Step partnership with the Blades earlier this week at the charity’s headquarters in Sheffield.

He also discusses the upcoming derby and how he feels that results will turn eventually for the Reds given the quality in the changing room.

We caught up with Academy prospect, HAYDEN PICKARD, and he tells us all about how our U18s have been faring so far this season in the Professional Development League.

The 16-year-old, who was named 2020 Academy Player of the Year, scooped our August Goal of the Month award and has been providing his teammates with assists in an impressive start to the campaign that has seen the young Reds stretch their unbeaten run to seven games, following Saturday's draw at Peterborough United.

Up next to take on the variety of whacky questions in our A-Z quiz is MADS ANDERSEN, and it’s safe to say that the Great Dane provides several intriguing answers.

Away from football, GROVE STREET spoke with YUMMY YORKSHIRE to find out all about their delicious food menu and artisan ice cream parlour. They also give details about their Market on the Farm and upcoming Christmas Market on the Farm, which will be packed with local traders leading up to the festive period.

There are four pages dedicated to our special guests from WESTON PARK, including information about how to pledge funds and what the charity does to help everyone who walks through its doors.

You can also ready the story of someone who has been directly affected by cancer, and how Weston Park was there to support him and his family during that incredibly tough and upsetting time.

As ever, club legend BARRY MURPHY pens his column and he writes about how he always relished South Yorkshire derbies back in his playing days and what these games mean to supporters.

Read about our visitors from Bramall Lane, including LEIGH EDWARDS’ feature about past Blades managers, while NEIL RICHARDSON’s Unsung Heroes piece focuses on IAN BANKS.

All of this and more for just £3!
