Sheffield Wednesday: Fans buzz over throwback footage of play-off final win

Sheffield Wednesday: Fans buzz over throwback footage of play-off final win - Sheffield Wednesday

This time 15 years ago, Sheffield Wednesday were victorious in the League One play-offs and secured the last promotion slot into the Championship.

The official Wednesday Twitter account has reminded Owls fans of the drama and celebrations that unfolded in 2005 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

It was a tense affair for both Wednesday and Hartlepool fans, as they hit the 90 minute mark sporting a 2-2 stalemate. It was the Owls though who dug deep during extra time and managed to squeeze a winning goal past the opposition in the 94th minute – plus an extra one for luck on the stroke of full-time.

How many career goals did David Hirst score for Wednesday?

One fan has replied to the club’s post saying ‘Days like this make it all worth it’. The Yorkshire outfit have had a tough ride over the years, yo-yoing between the Premier League, Championship and even League One during their darker days. Their 2005 promotion saw them stay in the the second tier for five seasons, before facing the drop yet again.

Other fans are simply reliving the joyous occasions and relishing in their personal memories of the match. Read more replies from Owls supporters here:
