Wembley return excites Hooper

18 May 2016


For Owls striker Gary Hooper, a return to Wembley cannot come soon enough.

The striker – who has hit 13 goals from 33 appearances this season – has enjoyed success in the past on the big stage in the capital.

Hooper went up through the play-offs at Wembley with former club Scunthorpe and is hoping to add another promotion to his CV on Saturday 28 May.



“I’ve experienced going up through the leagues and played in a few cups,” he said. “So I know what it’s all about going to Wembley and doing well.”

For the club too, it’s been a long 23 years since the Owls had cause to visit Wembley – an FA Cup final clash with Arsenal in 1993 – and Hooper says the fans deserve to enjoy this occasion.

He added: “The fans have been outstanding all season and we can’t wait to see them all at Wembley.

“I’m very confident we can do well and I think we’ve shown that against Brighton in the semis.

“As soon as I signed I knew that Wednesday would be able to reach the play-offs, we haven’t been out of the top six for a long time and now we go to Wembley looking to finish the job.”
