A visitor to Whitby was left baffled by a window display he saw in Mason’s fruit and veg shop on Flowergate - centred around Championship football team Sheffield Wednesday.

While there is a strong following locally for clubs such as Middlesbrough and Leeds, it is fair to say the Wednesday fans are a much rarer breed round these parts.

Michael Parker of Deepcar, Sheffield, who spotted the display on a day trip to Whitby on Sunday, said: “It was begging the question as to why such a display is on show in a shop in Whitby.

“I was wondering if any of your readers could shed any light and if so forward such information to me.”

Wednesday, known as the Owls, are currently in the hunt for promotion to the Premier League, if they can clinch one of four play-off spots.
