Season summary[edit]

Peter Shreeves remained at Sheffield Wednesday for the 2000-01 season as assistant to their new manager Paul Jewell. But Jewell was unable to mount a promotion challenge and he was sacked the following February with the Owls hovering just above the Division One relegation zone. Shreeves was given a permanent contract to take charge of the first team and he guided them to a 17th place finish.
