cheat Posted August 7, 2022 Share Posted August 7, 2022 (edited) The season kicked off next week 30 years ago, so it’s time for the update on the pre season comings and goings. And, there was surprisingly very little activity. Leaving Hillsborough was 21 year old striker David Johnson, who had surprisingly had a short run in the first team in the previous season. His five starts plus one substitute appearances had failed to produce any goals. His destination was Lincoln City for a tribunal decided £32,000. The only other departure was Darren Wood who was released in June, having made just 14 appearances in his three and a half years with Wednesday after joining from Chelsea for £400,000. Beset by back problems during his stay at S6 he was unable to find another club, and ended up retiring. Inbound there was just one body through the door, but what an arrival. Chris Waddle was signed from Olympic Marseille for £1m following his successful three year spell in the south of France, which saw him win three league championships, and a European Cup runners up medal. After having started his career at Newcastle the tricky winger earnt a big money move to Tottenham where his form saw him win the first of his 52 England caps. After four seasons at White Hart Lane he left for Marseille for what was a record fee of £4.25m for a British player. Although aged 31 by the time he joined Wednesday he had plenty of suitors and Trevor Francis’ early interest in signing him was quoted as being one of the reasons that he decided to chose us.
