Wednesday have continued their string of ticket offers by allowing under-16’s into the forthcoming clash with Barnsley for free with any full-paying adult.

The club have announced that, due to the clash with Simon Davey’s men being moved to a Tuesday night during the school half-term, youngsters will be able to watch the mouth-watering South Yorkshire derby for free if they’re accompanied by an adult paying full price.

Adults who’ve already purchased a ticket for the clash can claim their free child’s ticket by showing their ticket at the Owls’ ticket office, while season ticket holders can also claim a free junior ticket with voucher 4 from their season ticket book.

Youngsters who’ve already purchased tickets for the match will be eligible for one free ticket for any remaining Owls clash of their choice before the end of the season by showing their ticket stub from the match at the ticket office.

Lee Strafford told ‘We are delighted to give children the opportunity to come to Hillsborough to watch this local derby for free.

‘The atmosphere has been outstanding at our recent home games and at the beam back of the match against Sheffield United. With the fixture against Barnsley being rescheduled for half term we wanted to allow as many schoolchildren to come along and enjoy this game as possible so that local youngsters can enjoy the great feeling around the club at the moment.’
