First ever match was a reserve match in the late 50s and our neighbours son was playing (Redfern Froggatt)...Haven't got a clue who we were playing.  First mach I went to in anger was against Chelsea and we won 6-1  1966.

Too young to remember, would have been a Child on my Dad's shoulders on the Leppings Lane,  guessing around 74/5.

First time I can really remember being interested in supporting us was in the 3rd Division with Hornsby, Wylde, Rushbury etc so guessing my real interest started late 70s.

Funnily enough, back then I thought we were great, (although we were crap, we regularly won my Dad took me, so he can't took me that often!!) so much better than now. 

 

Remember Tommy Tynan? Him and Wylde together, great times but in Div 3

March 9th 1963 v Manchester City. We beat them 4-1(as we would today)with David "Bronco" Layne getting a hat trick and Colin Dobson the other. I've never forgotten that day with my Dad, who wasn't really a massive football fan, and seeing my heroes for the first time. Very happy days and memories.

Probably about 1961

My Uncle owned the Park Hotel at the time , it was a night match and I remember walking with my Dad down leppings lane and the sight of the floodlights were magical ( I was 5/6)

1960 - stood with my dad at Leppings Lane end v the double winning Spurs team. Owls lost 2-0 and finished 2nd. Blanchflower, McKay, and the brilliant Cliff Jones. 54000 watched it.

August 96 first game of the season against Villa. Seriously fell in love with football through Euro 96 and then Wednesday had a great start to the season, good times.

1958 or 1959 can’t remember which year it’s so long ago. I remember we won 5-0 and got promoted though.

 

Became a fan that day and really thought it would always be like it was back then.
