Meet Max Wragg

Meet Max Wragg

For those who don't follow the academy, the name of Maxwell Wragg on the team sheet will have been a surprise. Who is he? Where's he come from? Well, I'll introduce you shall I?

Max Wragg is a versatile defender from the Grenoside area of Sheffield. He joined the Owls as a fresh faced 12-year-old having previously played for Ecclesfield Red Rose and Sheffield Rangers. Wragg has also represented Sheffield Boys alongside fellow academy player Callum Harrison.

Seventeen-year-old Max is a full back by trade, but has impressed at centre back for the academy in recent weeks. The youngster has progressed steadily in his time at Wednesday and has become a regular name in the Reserves, coming up against some testing opposition in the form of Middlesbrough's Adam Johnson, before featuring on the Owls youthful bench against Fulham at the weekend.

Wragg's strengths come in the form of getting stuck in despite his smaller size. The modern game demands full backs get forward and Wragg is no exception, displaying bundles of energy in getting up and down the pitch. The modern day game also demands players be quicker and stronger and Wragg hopes that sessions in the gym will help him improve in this area.

By all accounts Wragg is a lively character and with him being a lifelong Owls fan too, he brings all sorts of other assets to the dressing room.

The youngster's emergence is timely, his apprenticeship runs out at the end of the season and he will be hoping to become another name on the seemingly endless production line of academy graduates at Hillsborough.

things is were saying we have an endless list off academy graduates but its only because we have no choice, we have to promote them otherwise we wouldnt have a squad, not saying they arent good enough just saying probably not as good as we make out, yes wood spurr beevers are really good players, but were pushing and over-hyping these others to much

have you checked results of u18's ,i thick they've won 2 out of 13 and the reserves have a worst record than that so i thick that says it all, not good enough for their respective divisions so nowhere near good enough for the championship

Not about results at this stage in there development. It's totally clear that you don't go to any of the games, otherwise you would have a better understanding. You should only pass comment if you actually know the situation in both leagues.

Can't believe we're being down on our academy and reserves. This Max chappy sounds like he's a good prospect for the future and we shouldn't be knocking him and saying he's not good enough for the first team - if he gets a chance to play he'll do his best and it'll be stored as valuable experience in his locker. Yes we're having to play players int he first team before they're rpobably ready but we're not doing so badly in the league are we?? Our neighbours have spent millions on experienced players and are only a few points and places above us having been beaten by us once this season...including a few younger players playing in that one. I don't see it as a bad thing and think we should be encouraging rather than moaning about it. Come on let's get behind the lads

Let's say the boys check up on all articles like this and see these discouraging comments at the bottom. I'm sure it'd be upsetting for them if they judged that you actually knew anything about football.

I agree aball2112, let's just get behind them all and hope that some of them make the grade!

im not saying im behind them, just saying were putting to much weight on their shoulders by saying there going to make the grade, and calling it an endless line of talent, when it might not be
