It seems like many former Sheffield Wednesday players went on to become landlords in pubs.

 

A few spring to mind such as Peter Swan being the resident landlord at the Travellers Inn at Attercliffe


Anyone know any others?

Let's see how many we can remember...

Don McEvoy who played for us between 1954 to 58 was landlord of the crown pub in Brighouse, West Yorkshire in the 70s/80s when I lived there.

I know Carlton Palmer used to own the Dam House bar and restaurant. Think it shut a few years ago though.

Terry Currans got one out near the kinsley dog track he owns with his brothers (as far as I'm aware)

I got a great story of being there on his birthday one Sunday a few years back.

I took a photo of all his family together for them as one of them had to stand out of it to take it. As they all split apart I shook his hand and said do you mind if I get a selfie, I got a quick snap then walked off...

Leaving Terrys brother stood there wondering what the ferk just happened and my Barnsley supporting father in law and 2 brother in laws  in tears of laughter lol

I saw him not too long after at a friends funeral in Stocksbridge, I ducked him just incase he recognised me

He kept the Castle Arms at Bolsover for a good few years, and also played cricket for Bolsover Colliery in the A section of the Bassetlaw League, which was a fair standard at that time.

 

Peter Swan kept a pub on Sheffield Road at Chesterfield, just below the old Grammar School, I think it was called the Saint Helena, but my memory is well past it's sell by date.

I thought he was still there also .

 

He has Alzheimer’s I believe. 
 

Saw him on Whittington moor a few years ago , saw him first from behind but could tell it was him , very distinctive
