Law degrees, shootings, arrest warrants: What happened to the Sheffield Wednesday side that last played Port Vale?

August 25, 2009. A simpler time.

Gordon Brown was Prime Minister, Black Eyed Peas’ I Gotta Feelin’ was number one in the singles chart and Sheffield Wednesday were tumbled out of the League Cup at the second round stage to Port Vale.

The League Two Valiants ran out 2-0 winners against a relatively strong Tuesday night Wednesday side managed by Brian Laws.

A first half red card for Francis Jeffers proved to be the real killer as quick-fire goals from Kris and Rob Taylor after the hour mark proved to be enough for the home side.

The Owls side is a mix of fan favourites and nearly-men who went on to achieve all sorts during their careers.

From shooting survivals, international arrest warrants and a great deal else and ahead of the two sides’ clash on Saturday, here is what happened next to the Wednesday side that last played against Port Vale all those years ago.
