Sheffield Wednesday: Head to Head

Peter Waring

Sheffield Wednesday: Head to Head reveals for the first time how the Owls have performed against every club they’ve ever played, in any competition, since the club entered the Football League. From Altrincham to York City, Wednesday’s complete record of matches against each club is looked at in detail and illustrated with pictures. Also included is a table of players who’ve played for both clubs and a ‘fact file’ highlighting the most surprising nuggets to be gleaned from this fresh way of interpreting the club’s statistics.

Did you know that of all the 123 teams that Wednesday have ever played, Glossop are the only one against whom they have never scored? Or that the Owls’ biggest-ever win in the league came in December 1930 when they beat Birmingham 9-1? Within these pages you will discover that of all the teams they have played, the Owls have faced Everton most often; that in December 1995 Wednesday scored six goals in a Premiership match for the first and so far only time; and that Hillsborough’s highest-ever attendance came in 1934 in an FA Cup tie – 72,841 crammed into the ground. All these facts and figures, along with countless others, are easily accessible in Sheffield Wednesday: Head to Head, which deserves a place on any fan’s bookshelf.
