Pretty sure that game was 4-1. I remember because my old man went off to get a tea and a pie before half time, but there were massive queues so he missed 3 goals either side of half time!! I was 8 at the time at laughed my head off at him, but he was well pissed off!

It was 4-1! Dont know why I put 0 (bloody iPhone!) - I was 9.

SWFC 0 - 3 Nttm Forest

May 5, 1990

I was 7 years old and went with my uncle, my dad and his uncle. I vividly remember the scores of the Luton - Derby match being announced and the roar going through the stadium when Derby scored. I think if Luton lost they got relegated instead of us? They won 3-2 and we went down. What a great start to being a Wednesday supporter...

April 2005 when we lost 2-1 at home to Tranmere

I was 20 but was like a big kid walking up to Hillsborough for the first time and taking it all in.

Stoke City, night match 1966, a few days after we had beaten Blackburn to reach the FA Cup Semi Final.

Went on the Kop and spent more time looking at the fans than the match. Just behind where we stood, four supporters had a batton each, about the size of a table tennis bat, which spelled out the word O W L S.

Workmen were still working, during the match on the West Stand as it must have been behind schedule for the World Cup.

I saw the posters outside advertising the next match, and thought we were playing Hillsbroth next, as it seemed to say Sheffield Wednesday Hillsbroth.

Was mesmerised walking down Herries road under the Five Archers and seeing the large neon sign lit up at the back of the Kop.

Think the price of admission for me was 9d.

After match walked back up Herries Road and saw the old disabled chap in his three wheeled hand propelled buggy, complete with chrome hooter.

1984 in the promotion season, at home against Shrewsbury. Drew 1-1 with Varadi getting our goal. Oddly, my one and only time on the North West Terrace.

It's been a roller coaster ever since.

How bizarre - that was also my first game and just as I was about to type it here up came the arbove message! I seem to remember Steve Ogrizovic in goal and possibly Nigel Pearson in defence for Shrewbury also

197? v Fulham. Peter Swans come back game after being banned. My Dad took me I would have been about 8. Just remember the open Kop chanting Swanny as the team came out and being amazed looking at it from the South Stand. Pete Swan gave me my first Wednesday top shortly after hooked ever since.

I'm an American through and through. I spent one year in Cambridge because my Uncle was guest teaching at one of the Universities for a year. My parents thought it would be a good experience for me and off i went! Glad I did. My oldest girl plays, the youngest daughter is too young for organized football.

Bet it was a great experience, which part of the country you in? I'm in wisconsin

mid 80s v Luton at home 1-0 to the Owls. awful game apart from the goal. keeper blasted the ball full in the face of john dreyer for an own goal from 25 yr

My first game too - 1986??

Seem to remember Dreyer getting stretchered off past the kop to a standing ovation!!!!

Even though it was a dreadful game, the whole Hillsborough experience sold it to me........don't often admit it but I was a Man Ure fan up to that point ( I was only eleven).
