Young Owls maintain strong start

Wednesday's youth team maintained their strong start to the season with a draw against Manchester City.

Sean McAuley's men kept their unbeaten run going with a draw against the country's most well regarded academy.

The Owls had started the season with a 2-0 win over Portsmouth and followed it up with a 0-0 draw against Chelsea. Last week saw the young Owls demolish their counterparts from West Brom 5-2.

This week was little different as Wednesday acummulated a 2-0 lead, thanks to a wonderful solo strike from new Geordie recruit Scott Canham.

Pro, Vadaine Oliver then rounded the keeper to double the Owls advantage.

However, any hopes the Owls had of claiming a famous scalp were dashed by City who scored two late goals to claim a point.

Nevertheless it has been a very impressive start to the season for McAuley's young men and they'll hope to continue this in next week's game against Wolves.

Kick off next Saturday is at 11am at Middlewood Road.

Very positive start for the Academy. We seem to be reluctant to blood Academy players in the first team, I can not understand this in the first team does not have much depth and you know pretty much what you are going to get from them. I could not understand why Palmer did not get on against Carlisle, I could not see O'Connor or Miller changing the game in a positive way. For the last couple of years you have produced an article on the Academy players providuing a useful profile and their prospects. It would be helpful if this could be done again and also details of the team put out by Wednesday. The Wednesday site provides poor coverage of the Academy and their games compared with many other clubs.

It's about time some of the youngsters were given a chance. Build for the future and blood them in alongside the more experienced lads. We lack a bit of pace and creativity. The likes of Liam Palmer, Nathan Modest, Vidaine Oliver and Sam Mir deserve a chance. Also well done to the young lads and to Sean McAuley for their great work for the Academy.
