Don Megson is regarded as one of Sheffield Wednesday's greatest servants. He was signed from Mossley in the Cheshire League by Wednesday in 1952. He made his first team debut in November 1959, becoming a regular in the side as a left-back and eventually taking up the role of club captain. It was as captain that he led his team to a lap of honour (the first to do so as a losing captain) after Wednesday's 3–2 defeat to Everton at the 1966 FA Cup Final. Don made 442 appearances (including 386 league appearances and scoring six goals) for Sheffield Wednesday before moving to Bristol Rovers in March 1970 for whom he made 31 league appearances and scored one goal.
