New York based band in Sheffield on the hallowed turf! I was thinking it might have been Jack The Lad or Lindisfarne... A line baggies then not flairs !! lol

The navy jumper with the owl logo on was nice...once was in the same pub as the squad on the way to Shrewsbury Town and they were all wearing those jumpers as they trooped off the coach led by big Jack. Bloody 0 - 0 draw I think...got well and truly hammered in Welshpool that night with a mate from college. He said “we’ll do the pub crawl down the Main Street there’s loads of pubs virtually side by side, look you.” 
We made it to about three of them and kept rotating around the same three pubs all night...don’t remember much about getting back to his parents place after either...so many nights wiped from my memory😬

13th April 1976 was the Shrewsbury game...I’m sure Paul Bradshaw was one of the players I recognised at the pub would that be right for that season?

Not flares, but a different fashion faux pas from our illustrious owner’s past...

Seems to have had the right advisors when it comes to cars...

Isn’t there a photo of the team with ‘club singer’  Marti Caine in one of the programmes sometime back in the 70’s?

Maybe there should be another thread for 70s Owls in flares with musicians? 

 

Here's John Holsgrove with the Barron Knights.

Whatever next....Mick Prendergast with The Grumbleweeds or Peter Rodrigues with Showaddywaddy?

I had one of the wool jumpers in Navy. Thought it was great we could get the clobber players were wearing in the club shop 😄
