By far the most popular First Wednesday event of 2011 was our Strikers Night at Hirsty's Bar - so we're kicking off 2012 in exactly the same fashion!
Once again we're getting some true Wednesday legends to Hillsborough to answer your questions about their time playing for the mighty Owls. And this lot should be able to keep control of a rowdy crowd, because they've all made their names wearing the captain's armband! That's right - it's time for Captains Night at Hirsty's Bar!
Over 270 Owls fans packed into the club's 1867 Lounge last Wednesday to enjoy our first Hirsty's Bar of the season - this one given over to the men at the sharp end, the gunslingers, the netbusters - the strikers. Host Hirsty was in great form as always, but was matched every step of the way by two other Owls legends in Rodger Wylde and Jack Whitham, not to mention the current goal king of Hillsborough, Gary Madine!
One of the most popular events we've ever offered - and the funniest by a country mile - has been occasional evenings with the Owls' goalscoring legend and special SWFC guests. So we're delighted to announce that our next First Wednesday event of the season is the return of Hirsty's Bar!
And we've pulled out all the stops to bring you an absolute belter of a night, featuring no less than SIX Owls heroes, all of whom are loved for regularly hitting the back of the net in Wednesday colours. spanning five decades of goals, goals, goals!
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.

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.
