SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY    1995/96
      Intertoto Cup
     
 

* Wednesday played their two home matches at Rotherham United's Millmoor Ground.

 

Initially enthusiastic about a revamped Intertoto cup competition - with UEFA Cup places for successful sides - the FA then found it difficult to fill their allocation of places. Sheffield Wednesday, Tottenham Hotspur and Wimbledon were finally persuaded to enter but while Wednesday had respectable results the two London sides didn't! They both struggled - not surprising given that they fielded largely youngsters and loan players - and did not survive beyond the group stage. Spurs and Wimbledon were later required to appear before a UEFA disciplinary court for fielding weakened sides.
