Sheffield Wednesday's Papa John's Trophy journey begins - and Newcastle United are involved
Sheffield Wednesday’s 2021/22 League One fixtures were released today, and their first Carabao Cup opponent was revealed – now they know who is in their Papa John’s Trophy group.
The Owls’ league campaign begins in August away against Charlton Athletic before taking on Huddersfield Town at Hillsborough in the Carabao Cup the following week as Darren Moore’s first full season at the club gets underway following his appointment midway through the 2020/21 campaign.
It was confirmed on Wednesday that Darren Moore’s side would be facing both Harrogate Town and Mansfield Town in Group H of the tournament, and now today’s draw has finalised the group – with Newcastle United’s U21s now joining them.
The first Round One fixtures will be played on the week of August 30th, with the final penned in for April 3rd next year for the two teams that make it.
In the First Round each team plays each other once, with the top two progressing into the next round.
