We received the following message from Chris Mantzios this week and thought we would share this with you all:-
Being a Greek living in Germany, I am a big fan and supporter of Sheffield Wednesday FC which was the first English football team I have ever seen. This was many years ago and I was immediately fascinated by the art of playing, the club itself and its amazing supporters!
MINUTES OF THE SOCIETY BOARD
We apologise for these not being posted to the website sonner, but they appear to have been "lost" in an hidden menu when the new site was launched 18 months ago.
We are endevouring to get these upto date in the forthcoming weeks
Would you like to be like Jayne who is a Wednesdayite member who helps fellow Owls fan Trevor attend home games on a regular basis.
Jayne escorts Trevor to most games picking him up at home and sitting with him in the North stand before returning him home safely.
It will be thirty four years since we played the game that became known as "The Boxing Day Massacre" and we would like to receive your memories of the day. The crowd that day was a third division record of 49,309 , this on a day of no public transport.
So keep checking it as more contributions are added.
Kicking us off is one of our regular writers and Wednesdayite Director Peter Shaw with:
I belived in Jack:
The latest supporter blog is probably from our youngest ever contributor.
Joe Howe, who is only 12 years old, talks about his day as a traveller on the Wednesdayite Coach to Blackpool.

MINUTES OF THE SOCIETY BOARD MEETING
held at the Hillsborough Stadium at 5 p.m.
On 21st April 2012
The FA Cup third round draw took place at 4pm this afternoon,
We were number 34 in the draw and we have been drawn to play:
Macclesfield Town V The Owls
The Owls travel to Moss Rose to visit Conference side Macclesfield Town. This will be our first ever visit to Moss Rose
We have only played The Silkmen once before in November 1975 when we played them at Hillsborough is the 1st round of the FA cup and we emerged winners with a 3-1 victory.
With Macclesfield being one of only three non-league sides still in the cup there is a very good chance this may be picked for live TV, and with the current capacity of Moss Rose being only 6,335. Away fans are normally located in the open John Askey Terrace, where up to 1,500 fans can be accommodated. Additionally, 403 seats are usually made available in the Henshaw's Stand, which sits at one side of the pitch.
The full draw is shown below (Ties to be played on the weekend of 4 and 5 January 2014)
The board of Wednesdayite have received notice from Richard Davies that he is standing down from being a Wednesdayite director.
The board wishes to place on record their sincere thanks to Richard for all his hard work over the past four years and hope he continues to be involved on a volunteer level and to keep in touch with the many friends he has made with the board and it's members.
The club would like to thank Dave for all of his hard work and wish him well for the future.
Sheffield Wednesday will be making no further comment at this time.
