Fox In The Reserves

Fox In The Reserves

Fox in the box Francis Jeffers made a scoring return to action as the Owls reserves came out on top, 2-0, against York City reserves last night.

Former Everton and Arsenal man Jeffers has endured a torris time with injury throughout his career, which has continued since making the move to Hillsborough.

But the scouser will be hoping his 20th minute strike, which opened the scoring against the Minstermen's second string, will signal a fresh start for the former England international as he looks to return to full fitness and repay Owls boss Brian Laws for his faith in the hitman.

Jeffers, who made the switch to S6 from Blackburn Rovers in the summer, has seen his start in the blue and white of Wednesday scuppered due to injury but will be hoping to make a steady recovery to feature before the end of the season.

Ronnie Wallwork bagged the second in the comfortable victory, while Owls fans will also be pleased to learn that Frank Simek and Steve Watson also played their part in their comeback from injury.

The article above doesnt state Franny had to come off in the 35th minute with his ankle feeling uncomfortable. Its a shame, but true.

Megs. How about another campaign.....get Franny some new ankles? It's a shame, cos he's a cracking player

Will he make the first team before getting injured again?

I bloody hope so. He can be a super sub for me

glass ankle jeffers needs to take his time and be sure that he doesn't aggravate the injury, if it takes another three months it will be worth the wait cos he is prem quality,
