    I bought one in the club shop on Saturday - it was in a Royal British Legion Box.
  5. When our current crop of over-paid - under-achieving "stars" fail to put in another shift - they could do worse than read up on some of the brave Wednesday lads who didn't have that luxury a 100 years ago. Here's a couple of Wednesday players to feel proud of. Jimmy Campbell of the Wednesday & the Royal Field Artillery John Lamb of the Wednesday & the Middlesex Regiment "The Footballers Battalion"
  6. A couple of interesting stories in this article - a very different world.
  7. in Wednesday's history. Mr Arthur Dickinson - as Secretary/ Manager he led #SWFC to a FA Cup win in 1896, a new ground in 1899, Promotion in 1900, 1st Division Titles in 1903 & 1904 and a FACup win in 1907. We'll not see his like again #WAWAW and I assume he did it all for free!
  8. How we could do with a 6ft+ striker who could bang them in like this ! #OnThisDay in 1951, in front of 46,570 at Hillsborough - #SWFC beat @Official_NCFC 6-0 and the #Legend Derek Dooley scored 5 ! Other goal by Jackie Sewell #WAWAW
  9. #OnThisDay in 1901 #SWFC beat @SUFC_tweets 1-0 at the Wednesday Ground, Owlerton - goal by Andrew Wilson. #WAWAW
  10. What a month this was for #SWFC back in 1989 - @BigRonAtkinson firstly signed John Sheridan #OnThisDay for a mere £500K - quickly followed by Phil King - a year and a half later this happened at Wembley and left Wednesdayites with some fantastic memories #WAWAW
  11. What a day! #OnThisDay 5 years ago - after a terrible start to the season #SWFC woke up and thrashed @ReadingFC 5-2 at Hillsborough. Goals Fryatt, @Michailantonio OG @ConnorWickham10 @JohnsonReda #WAWAW
