SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY picked up only their second reserve point of the season with a 1-1 draw with Port Vale at Stocksbridge Park Steel's Look Local Stadium.

The Owls, who included Tommy Spurr, Mark Reynolds and Liam Palmer in the starting eleven took a first half lead through trialist James Gray.

The lively looking striker chased down a punt with Joseph Davies and snuck in to lob keeper Chris Martin.

Gray was one of two trialists in the team, with Italian central defender Marco Perazzo playing alongside Spurr in the centre of defence.

Vale, though, who only named youngsters apart from goalkeeper Martin got a leveller in the second half through Liam Rice's close range header, after Arron Jameson couldn't hold onto Ryan Lloyd's shot.

The Owls had had chances to stretch their lead, but Jack Poulton's long range volley unluckily bounced back off the post.

Trialists Gray and Perazzo impressed. Gray looked a neat little player with a good touch, whilst Perrazo looked like a solid defender and strong in the air.



OWLS: JAMESON, BARNETT, PERAZZO (CANHAM), SPURR, REYNOLDS, TUMILTY, PALMER, ECKHARDT (PINHORN), POULTON, GRAY, HUSBANDS (KYLE).

Star Player

Tommy Spurr - Was a class above the rest on the pitch and was unlucky not to have scored with a long-range effort. Played in the centre first half and at left back in the second.

OK then i'll do it and i will use this story because personally I think this anniversary is more important than the reserves drawing with Port Vale. It was 20 years ago today that John Sheridan pinged the ball in off the Man Utds goals post to ensure the Blue n white wizards picked up their first trophy since we beat West Brom 4-2 in 1935. Now I don't remeber the latter but I remember the league cup like it was yesterday - although obviously I was only 1 at the time!!!! There seems to be a distinct lack of people mentioning this today. I would like to ask any Wednesday fans for their memories on that day!!!!!

I know i'll start you off shall I. I remember a Man Utd fan laughing at me and saying he was suprised I found the ground after how long it had been. I responded by asking him if he could remember where the league title was (which they actually hadn't won for ages) - he got really nasty so I went to a more Wednsday friendly pub. i also remember after the game a Man U fan grabbing a flag off a little kid and snapping it in half. I remember the goal and being disappointed in the ground, but thats about it. I also remember hearing on the radio that Steve Marriott from the small faces had died in a fire - strange what you remember. Also seem to remember getting on the tube at Canons Park. Really hope your stories are better than mine.
