Old Sheffield Wednesday players - who can you name?

Recommended Posts



As I remember (and I'm getting old) Bobby Craig was a little Scot with a bald head unlike Gerry Young (the bloke on the photo who scored 3 against Manchester United after converting from left half to centre forward). I saw Tommy Mac (scored against Blanchflower's Spurs) and Alan Finney, Tony Kay (is that Keith Ellis behind Ron Springett? Didn't he score 3 against Man Utd when Wednesday beat them 7-2 at Old Trafford 62 or '63?), Red Froggatt, Tommy Craig (wonderful player). Is that Ron Shiner (after whom I was named) and I had the cigarette cards of Jimmy Seed and Walter Millership. Some cracking memories in that lot! Many thanks!

Short crew cut maybe? I was small at the time! Didn’t we get him from Third Lanark ? Stretching the old brain cells a bit there. Is Third Lanark the weirdest name for a football club?

Just looked it up! Third Lanark was derived from the Third Lanarkshire Volunteers in 1872! 

Fascinating history on Wikipedia...

He must've been an amazing keeper, not a chance the ball is getting past him.

I suppose that being able to remember some of these players, beats the hell out of the alternative.  WTF:
