An estimated 15,000 Sheffield Wednesday supporters turned out for the club’s annual fun day, ‘Owls In The Park’, on Sunday.

The event in Hillsborough Park drew 3,000 more than last year.

Long queues built up in the sunshine as fans took the chance to meet and pose for photographs with their favourite players.

Chairman Milan Mandaric described the support as “incredible. It just shows how much they love their club. They are special people. I am really proud to be chairman of their club. It puts tremendous pressure on me to do as well as I can for them next season.”

Manager Dave Jones said: “It’s been even better than last year.”
