As one of the oldest league clubs in the Football League, Sheffield Wednesday can boast a rich and fascinating history, from their formation back in 1867 to the present day. The Owls have now played over 4,500 games in League soccer and hundreds more in cup competitions. Known the world over, thanks in part to their unique name, the club continues to attract a loyal and sizeable following to their Hillsborough ground, with hopes of regaining their long-since-lost Premier League place still alive. The City of Sheffield is the birthplace of Association football, and The Wednesday helped progress the game in the North of England in those early days, becoming the top club in Sheffield and a respected opponent countrywide. After being elected into the Football League in 1892, they have won the League title on four occasions, lifted the FA Cup three times and the League Cup once, and have represented England in European football on three separate occasions. A plethora of international players have also appeared for the club the likes of John Sheridan, Ron Springett and Des Walker while the club remains a vital member of its local community. In Sheffield Wednesday: A Pictorial History, Jason Dickinson takes readers on an illustrated tour of The Wednesday s unique history.
