The Owls have taken delivery of our special souvenir programme that includes the whole of the lockdown period and the return of football.
The team behind ‘Wednesday’ have produced a bumper, 100-page edition incorporating an extensive and unique ‘Lockdown Lowdown’ insert.
The Owls’ social media followers will be aware of the Twitter campaign the media department ran from day one of the hiatus all the way through to day 87 when the Championship resumption was confirmed.
During this period when football was suspended, we delved into the Hillsborough archives to post a Wednesday story relative to the respective day – here are a handful of examples:
Day 7️⃣4️⃣ - It was in 197️⃣4️⃣ when we staged our first ever league fixture on a Sunday!— Sheffield Wednesday (@swfc) May 26, 2020
The visit of Bristol City to Hillsborough on Sunday 10 Feb, 1974 was the first - in front of a 15,888 crowd. Final score 3-1 (Joicey, Henderson, Shaw) pic.twitter.com/KEcqXMZdcV
Day 8⃣5⃣ - One of our greatest number 9s; Jack Allen.— Sheffield Wednesday (@swfc) June 6, 2020
Allen scored 8⃣5⃣ times in total for us. His goals helped us win back to back League Championships in 1928/29 and 1929/30.
