  1. RIP Chris. Also remember Lorraine with fond memories.
  2. I certainly can. Ken Harrison who was originally from Glossop. Ken, myself and two other guys flew to Cape Town the previous weekend to see Wednesday play Hellenic. I always remember a toothless female Hellenic fan swinging a homemade rattle around her head; it was a car exhaust pipe with pebbles inside welded together (a lovely lass!!). Last I heard of Ken, hes still in SA but has retired to the Cape.
  3. You might remember this pre match welcome for the team.
  4. Hi. We lived off the William Nichol Highway in Fourways, the Owls supporters club that the players came back to after the Pretoria game was the Posthouse at Fourways. I used to work in Alberton for 12 years until I came back to Sheffield in 1993.
  5. I was also at the game : October 92 Tuesday evening ko. 2-2 draw (Jemson & Anderson scorers). The players came back to the Owls SA supporters pub in Fourways Johannesburg after the game. 11.30pm when they arrived!! (about 4 hours sleep before going to work, but worth it). The previous weekend four of us flew down to Cape Town to see them play Hellenic on the Sunday 2-1 win Paul Warhurst double. Another great after match party.
  6. Were you there Boxing Day 1979?

    Going well thanks Rob mate. Cockney also passed away a few years ago, a lot of the "old crew" went to his funeral in Ilford. I still see Vinnie occasionally and see Slacky & Archie in the South Stand at most matches. Normally have a drink in Napoleons with Pasquale (ex Ozzie Owl club yard of ale champ) before the game these days. Some serious celebrations coming up on Sunday pm. Cheers for now old mate UTO Andy
  7. Were you there Boxing Day 1979?

    Hi Rob Its your old mate Andy. I remember that you guys who were regulars in the middle of the North stand (Ted B, Vinnie, Cockney Richard etc) could not get a block booking for 30-40 guys so you booked into the South towards the West Stand. Great celebrations after, I went into the Nottingham House pub in Broomhill and rubbed it in with the Sheffield radio DJ at the time ; Ray Stuart RIP (Blade season ticket holder). Ah de dums I thought he was going to burst into tears ha ha. Roll on Sunday. WAWAW / UTO. Cheers Andy
  8. On this day 1975

    I was also there watching yet another depressing performance by Wednesday (most were not fit to wear the shirts!). If my memory serves me right two of our top boys got arrested, charged & incarcerated after a confrontation with the old bill in Worcester that evening. RIP : Colin W.
  9. Rallying Cry!!!!!!!! (Positive)

    I will certainly second that!!
  10. Chris Watson of Cabaret Voltaire is an Owls fan (or used to be). He was one of our crowd that used to go to all the home games & many away games in the early 70's.
  11. Am I right in saying that the little guy on the back row, far right is Brian Woodhall. He only played in the FA cup 3rd round replay against Leeds at Elland Rd in January 1969? due to injuries and scored twice in a shock 3-1 win (Johnny Ritchie also scored). I cant remember him playing for Wednesday again, maybe retired early due to injuries? We got knocked out in the next round at Birmingham.
  12. Cushions

    I took two to South Africa when I emigrated in 1981. They ended up being on display in the bar at the SA Owls Supporters club in Fourways Johannesburg. Some serious celebrations in that bar in 1984, 1991 & the semi in 1993!!
  13. Lucas Joao

    Congrats Lucas. Has to be awarded the freedom of the city now!!!
