Southend Set For Sell-Out

Southend Set For Sell-Out

Wednesday are set to sell out their near-2000 allocation for the trip to Roots Hall on Saturday to face newly-promoted Southend United for the first time in 23 years.

The Owls ticket office had just over 200 tickets remaining this afternoon after Wednesday fans had snapped up the initial 1,200 batch last week. Southend sent a further 750 batch to Hillsborough for sale because of demand.

It will be the first time at Roots Hall for many of the Owls faithful - with the last meeting between the sides at the famous old ground coming 23 years ago in the FA Cup where the Owls picked up a 0-0 draw in January 1983.

The last time the clubs clashed came at Hillsborough 13 years ago, again in the FA Cup, when the Owls ran out 2-0 winners over the Shrimpers thanks to two Paul Warhurst goals in 1993.

The Essex club currently lie just one position and one point ahead of the Owls after five games in the Championship. Their biggest scalp so fr is undoubtedly the victory over Sunderland at home last month - and they'll be keen to continue their fine home form against the Owls this weekend.

To book YOUR ticket for the Owls trip to Roots Hall on Saturday (kick-off 3pm) visit the official SWFC site or call 0870 999 1867 and select option two.
