A couple of interesting events !
Wednesday reached the FA Cup Semi Final after beating the favourites Aston Villa,who had won the cup the previous year. A crowd in excess of 20,000 roared the Wednesday a brilliant 3-2 victory which the local paper reported was after extra time ? Goals Woolhouse Spikesley & OG.
Wonderful cartoons from the Sheffield Telegraph
Is that crutch man down the front
Interesting snippet about the height & weight of the likely team - some stocky lads in there and none over 6 ft!
1951 Struggling #SWFC gave league debuts to two 17 year olds - Alan Finney & the original Golden Boy Albert Quixall. In front of 40,943 Wednesday drew 2-2 with Chelsea. Quixall has the better of the debuts - some of the history books record the Wednesday goals were scored by Quixall and Woodhouse but the Green Un reports they 2 own goals. Alas youth couldn't help as Wednesday were ultimately relegated that season as the Yo-Yo years had arrived
Seems like a different world and club but Big Dave is soldiering on ! 3 years ago on this day we went to the New Den and actually beat Millwall 3-1 in front of 8,568. Goals McGugan, Nuhiu & May.
