What happened to the 16 Sheffield Wednesday figures who played in Liam Palmer’s debut

Liam Palmer entered a new pantheon of Sheffield Wednesday iconism on Saturday, making his 400th appearance for the club.

The afternoon didn’t go as planned, but it shouldn’t take away from a monumental achievement. He joins a list of only other 14 Owls players to have achieved the feat.

The first of those 400 appearances came as Palmer made his Wednesday debut in midfield, in an August 2010 League Cup match against Bury.

The Owls won 1-0 thanks to a Giles Coke winner - but who else played in the match - and which two future Wednesday players featured for the opposition?

Here’s a run through memory lane.
