Watson Returns To Help McAuley

Watson Returns To Help McAuley

Former Wednesday midfielder Steve Watson has returned to Hillsborough to assist caretaker manager Sean McAuley following Brian Laws' departure from the club.

The former Newcastle United and Everton man retired from the game in the summer after injuries prevented him carrying on at Wednesday.

But he'll be looking to take his first steps into the coaching side of football when he assists McAuley at this Saturday's home clash against Swansea City.

The former club captain, who bagged the winning goal in last season's derby day victory over Sheffield United at Hillsborough, has been training at Middlewood Road this season to keep up his fitness levels up.

McAuley told the Sheffield Star: 'Steve has a lot to offer in terms of his knowledge and experience. He was coming in anyway (to train]. I can utilise him.

'He's a Premier League footballer with a Premier League network and Premier League confidence. All the players at this club respect him highly; he can give them that little quiet word now and again, and will help with day-to-day running.'

Seems like McAuley is going to be our man. I may be wrong, but I cannot remember a caretaker being allowed to bring in backroom staff before. From what I've heard so far, this may be a good thing!

He's keeping fit at the training ground at the moment. So it makes sense to use him if he's about. We need more experienced people at the helm in the long run.
