What was the first ever Sheffield Wednesday shirt that you bought/had?


Recommended Posts

I Had the “Arsenal in blue” Wednesday shirt and it was dead comfortable. 

I didn’t know any better as It was bought for me when I was a kid and now only like proper blue and white stripes. 

At some point I also had a red, yes red, top with white round collar and white cuffs. About 20% of clubs had that. 

I do not own any item of red clothing now I am in charge

Around 1960/61. Bought from a sports shop on Bramall Lane. Jack Archers I think it was called but may be wrong

Wanted to be the new Johnny Fantham

Mine was the same circa 1968-69.Absolutely loved it. I felt special living in Sharrow, most of the kids were United supporters but weren't very vocal about it.

I loved this kit cause I guess it was my first but my first experience of watching the Owls was the striped Bukta kit which I relate to more

This was my first Wednesday shirt as well, would have bought it in about 1967 when I was 11. I did have a blue and white striped one before this but discovered it was actually a Baggies shirt as the stripes were a much darker blue...that one stayed in the bottom of the drawer! Jumpin Jimmy McCalliog modelling it...so nicknamed by wags on the Kop when he started jumping when the tackles came in from the likes of Hunter, Chopper Harris et al!

I know times were hard in those days but having to share a football shirt with a stranger is a bit extreme

We only had one shirt for the whole team...every time you passed to someone you had to give him the shirt...a bit like walking football 🤣

This was my first home shirt. Got it with my first season ticket on the kop in 93.

Blimey, no chance of you getting killed by lightening then!

 

Nothing to do with lightening strikes, it was to save your buttons from breaking when they went through the Mangle !

I honestly can't remember. I definitely owned this one, so its probably the earliest....

But it's possible I had one from a couple of years earlier with the more traditional stripes. Or am I getting confused with the 97/98 kit - which I still have, but is bobbled to hell. Strange that I can't remember - I still have a 'Wednesday at Wembley' scarf from '93 which is the earliest piece of Wednesday gear I own.

 

Bizarrely the first football shirt I ever had was an Aston Villa shirt, at about the age of 4. Bizarre as none of my family are from Birmingham or Villa fans. My paternal side are all Wednesday and i've got quite a lot of relatives from the North East who are Newcastle/Sunderland. I think an uncle got it cheap from a market somewhere.

I wore this in goal for my school team all the way from 12 to 18. I loved it.
