Following on from the announcement of the ‘Sheffield Wednesday Dream Scene’ we would like to give supporters some food for thought over who they may consider worthy of a place in the prestigious painting.
Over the next week we will be releasing three lists of players you may wish to consider to be in the iconic dressing room setting, which Australian artist Jamie Cooper will bring to life.
Thank you to everyone who has voted so far, and please keep them coming!
What about the following?
Wednesday’s all-time record appearance maker and marksman with 216 goals to his name.
Influential league title-winning Owls captain, fans favourite and the only Wednesday player to win two cup winners medals, from the FA Cup triumphs of 1896 and 1907.
The last Wednesday captain to lift the FA Cup, Starling won his only England cap whilst at Hillsborough. He also scored 30 goals for the club.
‘The Olive Grove Flyer’, speedy winger, one of the first true Wednesday greats, scoring 115 goals, two of which came in the Owls’ 2-1 first FA Cup victory in 1896 against Wolves.
One of the best wingers to ever represent the club who also scored 135 goals. Winner of two Division One titles and an FA Cup.
Martin ‘Jack’ Earp
Captain of Wednesday’s first ever FA Cup winning team in 1896. Right full back and hugely popular with a tendency to get stuck in!
The most capped outfield player for England whilst at Wednesday. Fans favourite and captain, Blenkinsop won two Division One titles in 1929 and 1930.
A hugely popular goalkeeper and one of only three players to play over 500 games for the Owls. Capped six times for England, he helped secure back to back Division One titles in 1929 and 1930. Also a 1935 FA Cup winner.
One of our greatest wartime players, scoring 90 goals. Robinson posted four England caps at Wednesday.
An out and out winger who scored a fantastic 140 goals for Wednesday. Rimmer famously notched in every round of the Owls’ 1935 FA Cup triumph. He was also part of the team that won consecutive Division One titles.
