Owls Keeper Pens Two-Year Deal

Owls Keeper Pens Two-Year Deal

Wednesday goalkeeper Nicky Weaver has signed a new two-year deal at Hillsborough that will keep him at the club until 2013.

The former Manchester City and Charlton Athletic goalkeeper joined the Owls last summer and has impressed boss Gary Megson enough to earn a new deal.

The Sheffield-born stopper is currently sidelined through injury but Megson has described his number one as the best goalkeeper in npower League One.

It means Weaver is likely to continue as Wednesday's first-choice goalkeeper next season, with Richard O'Donnell, who is currently deputising in goal, acting as back-up alongside Arron Jameson.

Good, at his age for a goalkeeper the next couple of years could be the peak of his career. certainly can't think of many better in league 1.

He's always been my choice for number 1 keeper for next season, I think we have good cover for him as well these days... dare I say a potential number 1 keeper in waiting among them. He has the passion in his genetics and I think the 2nd and 3rd keeper will go from strength to strength with Weaver at the club! UTO

Even if we sign a good young keeper and he's awesome, that means that Nicky Weaver would me an immense number two!

Great result tonight, actually looking forward to going to Brighton Saturday now, hopefully gained a bit of confidence with last 2 results and the potential carrot of doing the double over the league leaders and potential champions, could go into top half if we win and other results go our way. I'm sure the lads are enjoying going into training a bit more now, dare I say Megsons loan signings have made a difference!!
