Owls Blog - Turning Hillsborough Into A Fortress07 August 2013
We welcome a new blogger to Wednesdayite.com in the shape of Charlie Sharpe. Charlie's from Leeds where he's training to be a primary school teacher. He grew up Wednesday thanks to his grandfather, and has been a season ticket holder in the South Stand since he was a boy, alongside his granddad, dad and brother. He's also got a kitten called Reda, which should be enough to scare off any burglars...welcome to the site, Charlie!

With the disbursement of the Society's shareholding came the opportunity to carve a new path for Wednesdayite in a post-political era. Wednesdayite changed their mission statement and shifted the emphasis from seeking positive change within the SWFC boardroom to seeking closer ties with the club in order to deliver a better matchday experience for fans, to mutually benefit both supporters and the club, and to reach out to the wider community with the SWFC brand.
At the 2011 Society AGM, Wednesdayite Vice-Chair Eddie Hoyland presented a vision of a future for Wednesdayite as a supporter's club first and foremost, embracing community, matchday and commercial operations to bring benefit to all the main stakeholders in SWFC in the years to come.

In December, Milan Mandarić took over as chairman of Sheffield Wednesday with Wednesdayite gifting their 10.07% shareholding to the Mandarić family trust as part of the takeover. When Wednesdayite members were balloted on the issue of gifting the shares, 97.9% voted in favour.
Mr Mandarić attends a Wednesdayite members meeting where he is warmly welcomed to the club and pledges to continue to involve the fans in everything he does to help take the club forward.

As the political situation continued to unravel at Hillsborough, Strafford eventually resigned as Chairman and with the club facing winding-up petitions from HMRC amid rumours of the club going into administration or worse, Wednesdayite lent their voice to the growing protest movement amongst Wednesday fans, working closely with the Shareholders Association and Time To Go under the Save Our Owls banner.
