    Off Middlwood Rd, 2 minutes from ground
  1. Absolutely, Curran was a catalyst that made an immense difference. Time to add those sort of players in the future when we have this difficult season out of the road.
  2. Not a player but I came across the grave of former manager Eric Taylor at Christ Church, Fulwood a few years ago (quite by accident)
  3. Yeah ...according to the book "The Wednesday Boys" he played for Heanor Town, Kiveton Park, Stocksbridge Works, Matlock Town, Frechville Black Bull, Ecclesfield Red Rose and Windsor BL..... bet you didn't expect that ;)
  4. Never heard of Crossland .... but talking of obscure goalkeepers, I remember that keeper Trevor Pearson, played four games in March / April 1972. Wednesday had a injury crisis with Grummit and Springett injured and the transfer deadline had passed. So Pearson of Norton Woodseats FC or something played as an amateur.
  5. 5 - 1 defeat at Walsall, December 1977. Terrible, Tommy Tynan missed a pen. Roger Wylde got one. Also remember another game at Walsall around that time which was abandoned after around 35 minutes because of torrential rain.
  6. I think not - you're right, I reckon it's the houses on Parkside Rd or Winster Rd
  7. If that photos taken from the cantilever then I think that's part of Hillsborough Junior School on Catch Bar Lane.
  8. Remember him getting out of his sick bed to play in an away match at Carlisle in December 1983 (he had influenza). He was ever present that promotion season. Fantastic player.
  9. Dean Barrick, scored in a 5-1 defeat at Anfield in 1989, people were raving. Now a PE teacher in Thailand. See this link http://totalfootballmag.com/features/features/where-are-they-now-dean-barrick/
  10. I think the household rubbish etc. was used to level out the pitch as there was a considerable slope originally, they didn't quite get it right as there is still the slope towards the Kop even today. But how the Kop was built up would be an interesting story.
  11. Spanish Doubloons were accepted from the Villareal fans, I'm told. :)
  12. Seem to remember Viv Anderson as a young left back for Nottingham Forest around 1975 putting it pretty neat the cantilever roof.
  13. Saw him in the doctors on Far Lane last November. Said to the missus "I'm sure that's Gerry Young who played for Wednesday year's ago" (couldn't mistake the broken nose). Any doubt was removed when the receptionist shouted "Gerald Young".
