    Following hot on the heels from announcements that East Midlands Owls and New York Owls have become affiliates, the Sheffield Wednesday Supporters’ Society, Wednesdayite's are delighted to announce another new affiliate - The Yorkshire Coast Owls.

    Peter Shaw of the Yorkshire Coast Owls said "As the massive giant that is Sheffield Wednesday has awakened from it's slumber, it has become increasingly apparent that our club has a unique name and brand with a world wide fan base. 

    Besides providing matchday services and Sheffield based events, communication by Wednesdayite through online newsletters is an attempt to reach out to the wider fanbase.

    Yorkshire Coast Owls is thrilled to be affiliated with Wednesdayite and embrace it's values, providing services as needed and opportunities to interact with other Owls on a local level. The formation of the YCO is indicative of the growing fanbase and our affiliation reinforces our unity, after all we're all Wednesday aren't we?"

    Wednesdayite vice-chair Eddie Hoyland said "One of the most impressive examples of what a great fanbase we have is that Wednesdayites can be found in numbers seemingly everywhere! The first meeting of the Yorkshire Coast Owls saw over a dozen fans come together to celebrate their love for SWFC - and we're delighted to give what assistance we can to help them spread the good word of Wednesdayism across the beautiful Yorkshire Coast!

    It's going to be great to see the flags and banners from every local supporters group flying in Fortress Hillsborough this season - and we hope that still more groups choose to become affiliate members of Wednesdayite and play their part in the vibrant SWFC fans scene."
