Have you got questions for TK?

13 July 2012

Planning for next season's official matchday programme is underway and the Blades want fans to interact once more.


Several new features are being considered for the npower League One campaign, which kicks off with a Bramall Lane encounter against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday 18th August.


Programme editor, Kevin Cookson, says: "We received a lot of positive feedback from last season's programme, from both supporters and collectors, but we remain committed to continue to improve. As well as speaking to supporters, we have taken on board comments from the recent fans survey and are attempting to deliver a product that Unitedites can be proud of.


"Our programme will have a new feel, a new look and plenty of fresh features - something for Blades fans of all ages."


One of the new ideas is question and answer sessions with prominent Blades from the past...and we want Unitedites to come up with the questions they want to pose.


Tony Kenworthy (pictured scoring a penalty at York), Martin Smith and Carl Asaba are just three of the names that have agreed to be interviewed and you can send in your questions for the trio now to kevin.cookson@sufc.co.uk


Kenworthy, of course, was one of the darlings of the 1970s and 80s, making 350 starts in a Blades shirt, whilst Smith's time at the Lane was short, but he did score 15 goals in 30 starts at the end of the 1990s. Asaba is another to have an impressive scoring record for United, his 24 goals for the club included an 11-minute hat-trick after coming on as a substitute!


Over the course of the 2012/13 campaign many other Blades stars of the past will be interviewed and sufc.co.uk will give supporters sufficient time to submit a question.


In addition, Unitedites are also being given the opportunity to have their holiday snaps printed in the official matchday programme.


Over the years, United's programme has carried photos of Blades fans on their travels, far and wide. We've had loads of photos of supporters in exotic locations showing off their true colours, whilst in the season just gone, there was a page dedicated to holiday snaps in the majority of issues.


This season we are continuing this tradition so if you are on your travels soon don't forget your camera and Blades gear and send us your pictures, plus a few words about your holiday and who is on the snap.


If you want your summer snaps in United colours in the programme, send them to kevin.cookson@sufc.co.uk and we'll endeavour to use them when the new campaign kicks off.
