Bostock was snapped up by Owls boss Darren Moore whilst at Rovers back in January, with the midfielder being seen as a promising signing on the back of a loan spell at Nottingham Forest in the Championship.

The 29-year-old was brought in as a free agent after terminating his contract with Toulouse but didn’t work for too long with Moore at the Keepmoat before Wednesday brought him to Hillsborough.

Now, with the Owls boss looking to bolster his ranks in an attempt to rebuild his Wednesday side, The Star understands that he is considering making a move to try and land the former Tottenham Hotspur man. READ FULL STORY HERE

Trust offer legal help to fans over outstanding season ticket refunds

The Sheffield Wednesday Supporters’ Trust has asked the club to reconsider their refund policy on season tickets when it comes to certain situations.

Wednesday announced a substantial drop in ticket prices for the 2021/22 campaign following relegation into League One with prices falling by around 20 per cent in general as the club prepare for the return of supporters.

While the reaction to the announcement was predominantly positive, there have been some concerns given that no cash refunds have been offered by the club; only ticket credit at this stage.

The trust also say they have been contacted by a member who has made a successful legal claim for a refund on outstanding 2020/21 ticket money, and can share his experiences if it helps others.

“Because we don’t want to encourage a mass withdrawal of money from the club we are writing out to all our members to ask them to contact us directly if circumstances dictate they need a refund, and we will share the blog written about this legal claim,” the trust said. READ FULL STORY HERE

Is this period Wednesday’s toughest in League One?

The lack of international breaks – and easing up of the pandemic – means that Sheffield Wednesday’s 2021/22 calendar isn’t as compact as the season before. But there’s still some tough periods to deal with.

Wednesday’s fixture list was released on Thursday morning as Wednesdayites found out that they’d be opening their League One campaign with an away game at Charlton Athletic and finishing it off at home against Portsmouth.

Darren Moore knows the division well and certainly won’t be taking any teams lightly regardless of their history or perceived stature, but there certainly are some historically ‘big’ names down in the English third tier – and others will see the Owls as a big scalp in 2021/22. READ FULL STORY HERE
