The Sheffield Wednesday Club Shop

 

Can anyone remember how the old Sheffield Wednesday club shop at Hillsborough used to look ?
 

It was on the back of the South Stand with a counter straight in front of you as you walked in and drawers full of stuff to buy..


 


Owlstalk Shop

Remember having to queue outside the shop to pick up the new wool jumper with the owl crest on, it was a must have at the time! even went to court in it, must have made an impression as I got not guilty. The counter at the front made it look like a chippy!

I remember going in once and getting my first shirt in 91! Viv Anderson was serving!

If I recall, all the players used to do a stint at one time or another, be good PR for the current squad to lend an hand.

Yes, I remember it well.

It used to just have a window.

Didn't sell much merchandise, though.

I don't think that was the original. Unless there wa another I never went to.

It was tiny - just a window. I am talking late sixties?

It was just the size of a shed.

Sold the odd rosette and Ozzie Owl sticker. The one where he is wearing a straw boater?
