A fine second half from the Owls on their travels brought the short Dutch tour to a successful conclusion on Thursday night.
Goals once again from the front pairing of Burton and Tudgay (two in two now for both of them) and an individual effort from Jermaine Johnson consigned Telstar to defeat in just eight second-half minutes.
Gaffer Brian Laws changed the starting line up for this second Dutch friendly game: Lee Grant once again between the sticks, but a line up of Wood, Beevers, Hinds, Gilbert across the back (good to see Woody after his clash of heads in training this week). The midfield matched new boy James O'Connor with youngsters Sean McAllister and Luke Boden, Esajas again got a start, with Tudgay and 'Lean' Leon at the sharp end.
A first half of no goals, but many chances for Wednesday.. Leon Clarke in particular unlucky to be denied by both the woodwork and the stalwart Telstar stopper. Laws made his first substitution on 35 minutes, JJ on for O'Connor rejigging the midfield, but no immediate change to the scoresheet.
A couple of changes at half time (Spurr on for Beevers, Burton for Clarke) and the Dutch dyke finally broke in a flurry of Owls goals.
Tudgay headed in from Tommy Spurr's cross on 60 minutes, Burton nodded in the second and then supplied Johnson who wandered through the opposing defenders and planted the ball past the unfortunate Telstar custodian. You can tell we don't know these guys names, can't you? :)
O'Donnell, Lekaj and McMenamin all got some game time as the match wound down, Akpo Sodje the most notable omission from this round of matches along with Kenny Lunt who is rumoured to be spending his time with Crewe at the moment. Jimmy Smith sat out this game after his knock on Tuesday, and Wade Small nursed a broken finger.
However, 3-0 to the Wednesday and job most definitely done on the European tour!
