As one of the oldest football clubs in the world, Sheffield Wednesday has gone through its fair share of ups and downs. We pick things up here in 1907, with the club’s second FA Cup win, before going on to chart further First Division successes in 1929 and 1930, as well as their final FA Cup win in 1935. The Owls’ last major success was the League Cup in 1991 which, along with their Premier League years, is also covered in depth using reprints of original newspaper reports. What’s more, Wednesday fans can look forward to recounting the exploits of legends including Ernest Blenkinsop, Jack Allen and Tommy Craig.

Sheffield Wednesday FC was formed in 1867 when the Wednesday Cricket Club was expanded to include football. Football was only intended to help the team remain fit during the winter months, but it soon became very popular and the main source of revenue at the club. The cricket side later disbanded. Sheffield Wednesday Football Club turned professional in 1887, but they were denied entry into the Football League. The Owls became founder members of the break-away Football Alliance in 1889 and they won the inaugural league championship. Wednesday also won the FA Cup that season and the club’s success eventually led them into the First Division three years later. Sheffield Wednesday went on to become a highly accomplished side, winning four league titles and two further FA Cups by the mid-1930s. The Owls struggled to match this success over the following decades. Sheffield Wednesday reached the FA Cup final in 1966, but the Owls did not win another trophy until the 1990s. The drought was broken in 1991 with a win over Manchester United in the League Cup final.
A Sheffield Wednesday Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of the Owls. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Sheffield Wednesday Football Book makes the gift even more special and shows the thought that has gone into buying it. The present will also prove to be a terrific addition to a supporter’s Sheffield Wednesday memorabilia collection.
This Sheffield Wednesday Football Book opens with Wednesday winning the FA Cup in 1907, beating Everton 2-1. It goes on to cover a selection of great games through the decades of the 20th Century and many highlights from the present era.
Some of the top early stories in this Sheffield Wednesday Football Book include the Blades becoming Champions of Division Two in 1926 and winning Division One in 1929 and 1930. Relive the glory of winning the FA Cup in 1935, by beating West Bromwich Albion 4-2 at Wembley Stadium. The Gift Books also feature the 1966 FA Cup Final against Everton and the 1-0 victory over Manchester United to win the League Cup in 1991. The Sheffield Wednesday Books incorporate reports on the record 72,841 crowd at Hillsborough watching the 2-2 draw with Manchester City in 1934, plus Wednesday winning promotion to Division One in 1950 at the expense of Sheffield United. You can also read about the dramatic 7-1 win over QPR in 1987 and the 5-0 victory against West Ham in 1993. The Gift Book contains newspaper coverage of European games, including wins over Roma and Barcelona.
