“We are back” – Aston hails Eagles’ Wembley return

Sheffield coach Mark Aston believes the club’s return to Wembley could be a major turning point in the club’s history.

The Eagles booked their place in the 1895 Cup Final with victory over Batley on Sunday.

He told The Star (Sheffield): “It is massive. I saw people [at the game] who I haven’t seen for a while, and they were saying we are back.

“We have a quality group of players and board of directors who are behind this. There is a lot of good work going in.
