Owls To Host Magpies In JP Trophy

Owls To Host Magpies In JP Trophy

Wednesday have been awarded a home tie in the first round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after being drawn against League One rivals Notts County.

The draw for the opening round of the lower league competition was drawn this morning on Sky Sports' Soccer AM programme - and will be for the remainder of the competition.

The Owls' clash against the Magpies at Hillsborough will take place in the week commencing Monday, August 30.

Wednesday were in the Northern Section - East of the competition, meaning they could only be up against one of seven clubs, including South Yorkshire rivals Rotherham United.

They missed out on a 'bye' into the second round.

It's a case of 'reality bites' for Wednesdayites as they enter the competition for the first time since Paul Sturrock's reign as manager, last time they were in the third tier of English football.

Bring it on...

Gonna be a bit controversial here cos I hate this cup, just think its very Micky Mouse and only serves a purpose to add more games to a season backlog for the lower teams who dont have massive squads to begin with to be ableto cope with the added demands. I know not many people will agree but thats just my opinion.
