Tommy Crawshaw

The pre-war skipper is the only player to have two cup winners medals to his name, as he helped the club to the FA Cup in 1896 and 1907.

He was also key as the Owls won consecutive Division One titles in 1903 and 1904.

Crawshaw made an incredible 465 appearances for Wednesday between 1894 and 1908, scoring 26 goals from defence.

During his time with the Owls he helped to establish the club as one of the best teams of the era as Wednesday moved from their early home at Olive Grove to Hillsborough.

This is brilliant Rolfey.  I must have been living under a stone for the past two years not to have come across this before!  Tommy was my Gt Grandfather. Are the prints still available?

 

As you know, we're closing in on the 120th anniversary of the first match at Hillsborough next month on 2nd September when Tommy and his team mates made a wining start to life at Owlerton in 1899.  I hope it's a good omen for this season. 

 

I haven't seen anything planned at SWFC to mark this historic date, but coincidentally, as a family, we've got something to celebrate the day after on Sept 3rd this year when my actress daughter Jane Crawshaw, whom we named after Tommy's wife, will be making  her Television debut in the guest lead role in an episode of  Holby Citye.   Not one to miss if you're into historic connections with the Owls. If only it made been smack on the date itself!  

Great work Rolfey; all the best.

Tom Crawshaw
