Kids In For Nowt Against Barnsley

Kids In For Nowt Against Barnsley

Wednesday have continued their string of ticket offers by allowing under-16's into the forthcoming clash with Barnsley for free with any full-paying adult.

The club have announced that, due to the clash with Simon Davey's men being moved to a Tuesday night during the school half-term, youngsters will be able to watch the mouth-watering South Yorkshire derby for free if they're accompanied by an adult paying full price.

Adults who've already purchased a ticket for the clash can claim their free child's ticket by showing their ticket at the Owls' ticket office, while season ticket holders can also claim a free junior ticket with voucher 4 from their season ticket book.

Youngsters who've already purchased tickets for the match will be eligible for one free ticket for any remaining Owls clash of their choice before the end of the season by showing their ticket stub from the match at the ticket office.

Lee Strafford told 'We are delighted to give children the opportunity to come to Hillsborough to watch this local derby for free.

'The atmosphere has been outstanding at our recent home games and at the beam back of the match against Sheffield United. With the fixture against Barnsley being rescheduled for half term we wanted to allow as many schoolchildren to come along and enjoy this game as possible so that local youngsters can enjoy the great feeling around the club at the moment.'

Are you suggesting 'kids for free' originated with Sheffield United and we are somehow copying you? Got any evidence to back that one up? No. Thought not. If the best banter you can come up with is sniping at every good move Wednesday make, shut it.

BFL you don't do yourself any favours do you? By the way I don't believe you have made a £1000 bet. You are just trying to sound like a big time charlie but end up sounding a right charlie. How can you afford £1000 with the wages they pay you at McDonalds

so hurtfull randon pig - flip side is - if we get into playoffs and reach the playoff final at wembley, win or lose he's coming with me in his car, buying the tickets, the beer, the food, the hotel, the night out and my grand back!! looking half decent for me at the moment. he is sweating a little i know that!!

he's also building our conservatory extention and stables, so i'm a little worried as he has said that he's chucked 2 off his old wendy shirts into the foundations. he's probably reading this now the pig!!

Give Pigforlife some credit. They might not have invented the kids for free idea but they have given all their kids(piglets) free season tickets this season which is why their average attendence is over inflated. I think we will soon see the pigs true colours next season when it drops back below 20,000. They only went this season to see Beattie. Who are they going to pay to see next season??? I've heard they are taking all the roofs off the stands at the sty next season so all the pigs can see where the ball is for most of the match.

You fill up my senses, Like a bellter from Tommy, Like a winner from Tudgay, Like three easy points Like a night out in Sheffield, Like a Sheff Wednesday double. Lets all laugh at the Piggies, God bless Brian Laws!
