As resident artist, Pete is now preparing a number of sketches to commemorate the club’s 150th anniversary this year.

The club are celebrating the occasion along with Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, which has also reached the 150-year milestone.

The joint anniversary has already been captured by Pete who drew a specially commissioned illustration comparing the prominent Sheffield organisations.

Pete said: “I live and breathe football, so the chance to sketch Sheffield FC is a real honour.’’
