Following a good old-fashioned Steel City battle, the Owls emerged triumphant over the Blades – and Wednesdayite Steve Milne is flying the flag for his club as result.
Steve was recently the architect of a unique competition between Wednesday and United following his commitment to participate in a 100km walk along the Western Front in Europe.
The concept was simple – which team’s supporters donated the most sponsorship money on behalf of the Army Benevolent Fund would have the honour of Steve donning their home shirt for the trek.
And we are delighted to say that Wednesday won hands down, with Steve not only getting to wear his beloved blue and white, but doing so having raised the highest amount in the whole country!
Prior to the walk, Steve was given the VIP treatment at Hillsborough last Saturday as skipper Glenn Loovens handed the native Sheffielder his shirt, together with a wreath to lay on behalf of everyone at SWFC.
The Frontline Walk, which commemorates the Centenary of WWI, started on Wednesday and ends this Sunday.
Steve said: “I would like to thank both Wednesday and United for their invaluable help and everyone who sponsored me and wished me well.
“I feel humbled by the number of people who believe in the reason I am walking.
“The ABF have also passed on their thanks.”
Steve’s fundraising page is still live HERE so please continue to donate to this fantastic cause.
