FA Cup 3rd round - Away to Macclesfield Town

on December 08, 2013

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) 

Tribute to Nelson Mandela

on December 06, 2013

The announcement of Nelson Mandela's death was made by President Jacob Zuma at 21:50 on Thursday 5th December 2013 live on television speaking to the world.

One of the brightest lights in our world has gone out tonight.

To those who observed him closely, Nelson Mandela always carried himself as one who was born to lead.

Wednesdayite Lounge - the best pre-match venue

on February 08, 2012

Popular with many of our members, we have our very own pre-match Lounge where members and their guests can enjoy cheap drinks, BT sports on the big screen,  along with great freshly-cooked food before the big match. And all this within a short distance of the ground! It’s a great place to meet up and discuss all things happening at Hillsborough, build up to the game and to meet other members from all over the country who have made this their regular meeting place. And best of all, entry is complete free to Wednesdayite members - so come along and join in the matchday fun!

 

The Wednesdayite Lounge is at the popular venue of The Niagara Club on Niagara Road, Wadsley Bridge, S6 1LU and is open at 12pm until Kick off for all Saturday 3pm games, and from 5:00pm until Kick off for night matches.

Just a few minutes walk from Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough ground, The Wednesdayite Lounge is the ideal pre-match meeting point to have a drink, some food and get together with fellow Wednesday fans.

Signing In - All members and guests must sign in on entry to the Lounge and members will be asked to show their Wednesdayite membership cards as part of the signing-in process. Amongst other things, this will enable us to track numbers for health and safety purposes (ensuring we do not breach fire safety quotas etc) and to more proactively manage membership renewals by prompting and processing renewals there and then.

Guests - We will continue to welcome members’ guests to the Lounge at an entry fee of £1 per guest (children free) which will help raise funds and promote new memberships. If you are intending to bring more than two guests to the Lounge at any time, please advise a Wednesdayite director beforehand. 

Please note MATCH DAY car parking is NOT available at the Niagara, please use our own match day parking facilities.
