SHEFFIELD Wednesday’s biggest selling programme of all time has won a national award.

The Northern Programme Club Independent View has voted the season finale matchday magazine against Wycombe Wanderers ‘Wednesday’ as the May programme of the month winner, having sifted through submissions from all four English divisions.

The 100-page programme sold in excess of 10,000 copies to take status as the club’s best-selling programme in history.

Neil Patterson, editor of NPCIV, said: “The unrivalled Sheffield Wednesday matchday programme took the May honour due to its outstanding design and content which was the result of a great deal of effort and hard work by the editor and his team.

“There were so many features of this programme to commend, making it an easy decision for the judges.”

Trevor Braithwait, The Owls’s director of communications, said: “We are really pleased with this award.

“I would like to thank our programme partners, O Publishing, and everyone who contributed.”
