And finally… retro pitch invasion

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

It’s 1982 and times, as well as shorts, were pretty tight. But on a sunny May afternoon Sheffield Wednesday host Norwich City in Division Two (that’s the Championship, kids) and a fan gets in on the action at the back post (3m 07s in) with a flying ‘header’. Wednesday celebrated that day but the Canaries had the last laugh finishing in the third promotion spot one point ahead of the Owls.

Hat-tip to When Saturday Comes for the spot. Seen something worth sharing? Email [email protected].
