The last game in May at the end of the 2010-11 season saw Wednesdayite give a special day to a very special young boy.

Eight-year-old Ben O’Brien has bone cancer affecting his left knee and shin.  Ben was diagnosed with this aggressive form of cancer after his mum noticed that he was passing up playing his beloved football due to pain in his leg.

Since June 2006, Wednesdayite have been actively involved in developing a new and very exciting fund raising scheme to help deserving fans in the local community.

All the money donated by fans to Wednesdayite’s Smile Ticket Fund will be spent at SWFC to purchase Match day and Season Tickets. This gives the club a direct benefit from the additional revenue of ticket sales.

Owls Blog - The COG Blog

on June 20, 2013
The first Owls blog of the close season sees a new Owls Blogger, Aiden Cusick, feature on Wednesdayite.com.  Aiden is a 22-year-old wannabe sports journalist with an obsession for Sheffield Wednesday and in his own words "talks a good game, plays like Kim Olsen."
 
Aiden's first blog some may say is good timing, some may say it's bad timing - but Aiden takes a view on recent Owls striker and new Barnsley signing Chris O'Grady.

Owls Blog - Wednesday Survive On Promotion Form

on May 13, 2013
Owls blogger Richard Brook brings us his final blog of the 2012-13 season with his review. Richard 31-year-old life-long Wednesday supporter, and amateur football writer. He lives with his wife and three Wednesday brain washed children. Like most of his generation Richard’s heroes were Hirst, Waddle and Sheridan, and as goalkeeper himself Kevin Pressman.

"Sheffield Wednesday signed off their first season back in the Championship with a 2-0 win against Middlesbrough, at Hillsborough. It was a game the Owls had to win, to retain the second tier status that the club fought so hard to attain the season before.

Owls Blog - Down To The Last Day

on May 02, 2013
Regular Owls blogger Joe Crann returns to Wednesdayite.com with his final blog of the season as we approach the 'Last Day' with so much riding on it.  Joe is based in South Africa and is a journalist for Soccer-Laduma, Africa’s biggest football publication.  He's Sheffield born and bred and moved over to Cape Town, South Africa in 2011. 

"We could have made it easier for ourselves, we could have guaranteed our safety with just a draw against Peterborough United, but no, in true Sheffield Wednesday fashion, our relegation battle will go down to the last day.

Owls Blog - The Run In

Owls blogger Ben Wier returns to the line up at Wednesdayite.com as the 2012-13 Championship relegation fight draws closer to its conclusion.  Ben is 20 years old and lives in Colchester, Essex and when he's not there he's in Sheffield attending the University of Sheffield where he studies Journalism.  

Ben's Dad is from Sheffield and has been a Wednesday fan, like himself, all his life. He took him to his first Wednesday game at Hillsborough during the 1998-99 season where the Owls drew 0-0 with Chelsea and despite no goals, in his own words "I was hooked".  One of his favourite Wednesday goals witnessed live was Matt Hamshaw's mesmeric goal vs Watford in the League Cup Quarter Final in 2001 when we won 4-0.  His favourite players over the years have been Chris Brunt, Jermaine Johnson and John-Paul McGovern.

Owls blogger Matt Grant returns to Wednesdayite.com with his second blog in the last couple of weeks and this time looks at the Owls season so far and speculates how the rest of the season will pan out.

"Time to dust ourselves off and keep on marching.  Like many Wednesdayites, I try to attend all of the home games and get in at least a couple of away days per season. And like a lot of Wednesdayites, getting to home games can feel at times like constantly doing the away day as I have to make a 40+ mile journey there and back each time over the Pennines from where I currently live in Stockport.
