On-song Owls tame Tigers

On-song Owls tame Tigers

Wednesday saw off local Evo-Stik Premier League side Worksop Town 3-0 in a pre-season friendly today.

Goals from Lewis Buxton, Gary Madine and Mark Beevers gave the Owls victory at Sandy Lane as Wednesdayites caught their first glimpse of Gary Megson's new-look side.

The Tigers, who ply their trade in the Evo-Stik Premier Division, three steps below the Football League, gave Wednesday a good test in their first domestic pre-season friendly.

All four of Wednesday's summer signings to date - Rob Jones, David Prutton, Julian Bennett and Jose Semedo - got run-outs as Megson fielded a strong side for the clash.

Buxton headed Wednesdau ahead early on before Madine double the Owls' advantage before half-time and Beevers completed the tally in the second half.

thought we looked solid throughout prutton looked class madine,s goal was a rocket and jj seems to know how to cross now desperately need a right winger and a striker morrison tries but just not good enough but the banter we had with him was brilliant

A win is a win but it's all about fitness levels at this stage of the campaign. Any injuries picked up does anyone know?

Morrison would not score 20+ goals if he played for Worksop in the Evostick league!
