Greetings from Germany

We received the following message from Chris Mantzios this week and thought we would share this with you all:-

 


Dear Owls-Friends!

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!

Wednesdayite needs your help

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.

FA Cup 3rd round - Away to Macclesfield Town

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)
