Where was your first away game?

Recommended Posts

0-0 draw at Leicester, Halloween 1981. 

 

But after that random game, apart from the quarter final at Burnley in 83 and the 2 semi finals I didn't start going to away games until 1990 when I was 18.

Bristol city away 1-1 Like Varney scored felt like a win went on the Wednesdayite coach what a incredible experience! Sadly it's not like that these days.

 

You're not wrong, they let anybody on the Wednesdayite coach these days, some right annoying gobshites. Its a last resort for us these days, used to go on it regularly.

Highfield Road. My first ever game. Cant remember the year but my excitement didn't last long as Dion Dublin scored after about 2 minutes. Lost 2-0 I think. All I can remember was Woods kicked every goal kick out for a throw in

Mansfield in 1976. Went on the service bus with my mates. I was just 15 and it seemed a real adventure. Needless to say we got battered 3-0. Hanging round Mansfield town centre waiting for a bus back to Sheffield was somewhat of an eye opener.

Bramall Lane,  1980 League Cup - 1 all Curran (Not THAT goal!) sat in South Stand with my mate and his Dad, we joined in the chorus of "Harry Hallam's Mucked it up again" Coming from the away end. (We were a little bit deaf and very young and Naive back then!)

 

First "real" one (outside Sheffield) Cambridge FA Cup 5th Round 1983 with my Dad.

Won 2 1 Megson got both. Hooked on Away games from then on.

We drew 1-1, the pigs went ahead and Carlton Palmer equalised in front of the away end.

 

Hirsty wasn't it ?

 

Did a dodgy half baked gymnastic move in front of us then limbs just went everywhere.

My first away game was when we lost 2-0 in the league cup against Grimsby Town, worst off all  one of my dad friends also a massive Wednesday fan, lived in Grimsby managed to get us some tickets in the Grimsby Town end,we took the wrong turning on the way home and nearly ended up in Leeds.

Weren't it standing back then?

Also seem to remember abit of bother on it, then a request over the tannoy for Away fans in home ends to move to the end of the old Side John Smiths Roofed Terrace, Que thousands moving from 3 sides of the ground.

I can also it was my 21st Birthday. 23rd October 1990.

Different match, I was stood in the away end when Hirsty scored, I was sat in the South Stand near the Kop when Palmer Scored.

Was a bit worried as we jumped up, turned out it we were fine there were hundreds of Fellow Owls sat around us.

Both games ended 1 all.

I'm not sure which year was which, I seem to remember the Hirsty one being first, but can't remember what year, I just recall being at both.

The Hirsty one we had a goal disallowed for offside when someone was in the back of the net, scored about 5 minutes later, as you said the limbs were amazing.

If I had to guess I'd say Hirst 92/93 Palmer 93/94 only guesses though.
