I think it might have been Hirsty. It was the match against Man City on new years day 1990 when Pressman broke his leg and Hirst went in goal and kept a clean sheet. I'm pretty sure he scored one of the goals that day too but not sure which one (we won 2-0). Been trying to find something online about it but apart from a mention on Hirst's wikipedia page with no citation there doesn't appear to be anything.

Whoever scored first in the Owls 3-2 victory over the mighty Southend United --- 9th September 1978

I've viewed the teams we played that season, shocking times! we finished 14th in Div 3..

Shrewsbury Town won the league on 61 points.... Wednesday never climbed higher than 9th

Own goal by a Luton defender, John Dreyer?, keeper smashed it full in his face and went in the net from outside the box. First Owls goal was Marwood i think against Villa. Cant remember if he scored but he won the pen, Chapman may have took the pen, my memory is fading!

Hirst scored the first (poetry), and Pearson scored the second.

My first goal was Billy Griffins' in the famous victory over Spurs in November 1960.

Not sure about mine as it was about 37 years ago (Owls 3 Aldershot 0)

My boys first Wednesday goal was Leon Best in a 1-1 draw against Hull City in 2005.

(His first game was a 0-0 draw the previous season)

Imre Varadi in a 1-1 draw against Shrewsbury in 1983. Nigel Pearson and Steve Ogrizowicz played for Shrewsbury but I remember very little else about it. I was 8.

It certainly is, that Luton own goal was about 2-3 years after Marwood left the club

Can anyone help. My game was home against Fulham in 82 / 83 season, towards the end of the Jack Charlton Era.

We won 2 - 1 but can find no record of the scorers. Anyone help?
