Owls Await Transfer Green Light

Owls Await Transfer Green Light

GOALKEEPER Nicky Weaver is having to be patient in waiting to become a Wednesday player with the club still not having a transfer ban lifted.

The Owls were slapped with a transfer embargo by the Football League following the news that a winding-up petition had been issued over non-payment on taxes.

And although the issue seems to be all-but resolved following the sale of goalkeeper Lee Grant to Burnley, the embargo has yet to be lifted.

It means that although Weaver is training with Wednesday and is boss Alan Irvine's first choice to be number one for this weekend's season opener, a deal can't yet be completed for the stopper.

It could go down to the last minute - far from the ideal preparation for the new npower League One season.

Untested stoppers Richard O'Donnell and Aaron Jameson will be on stand-by if Weaver can't feature against Dagenham & Redbridge this weekend.

But Irvine will be keeping everything crossed that the Football League lifts the embargo this week to allow Sheffield-born Weaver to play on Saturday.

Have we actually paid the bill ?? Cos if we have the embargo should be lifted straight away. If we have paid its just Inland Revenue trying to show that it has some sort of power enjoying the moment of being able to hold a football club over the barrel and make an example. Well enjoy it while it lasts u idiots. Its just like Worksop Owl says all take no give !!

I think we are simply waiting for the "process" to be signed off by these time serving public servants.

If the club had paid the bill in the first place we wouldn't be in this stupid situation. Idiots run this club, total idiots.
