Well, what a day that was …

April 21, 1991 … 30 years ago today and a date etched in the memory of Wednesdayites all over the world as we beat Manchester United 1-0 to win the Rumbelows Cup at Wembley.

John Sheridan’s goal, Chris Turner’s save from Brian McClair’s header and those agonising last few minutes before we could all celebrate in style.

For the London Owls, we didn’t have far to go as we had booked a room or two at the nearby Wembley Hilton and the beers were soon flowing.

As captain Nigel Pearson said after the victory … ‘Well, what a day that was’.
