Wembley glory for former Wednesday trio

See the game last night? Bad eh..

But that Joe Bryan double secured a Premier League berth for Fulham, up through the playoffs for the second time in three years with a 2-0 win over Brentford.

Three former Sheffield Wednesday figures had cause to celebrate. Long-time Chelsea centre-half and 2018/19 Owls player of the year Michael Hector was excellent at the heart of the Cottagers’ operation while Josh Onomah also played a vital role in midfield.

There will always be a special place in a Wednesdayites’ heart for former manager Stuart Gray, whose role as Scott Parker’s assistant should not be understated.

Congratulations to Fulham.
