Owls confirm Scunthorpe friendly date

Wednesday have confirmed a friendly clash against Scunthorpe United this summer.

The match against the Iron will take place at Scunthorpe's Glanford Park ground on Saturday, July 13 with a 3pm kick-off.

Former Owls boss Brian Laws is in charge of the League Two club, adding some spice to the encounter as both teams prepare for the 2013-14 campaign.

More friendly clashes are expected to be announced in due course.

WHAT IS ALL THIS ABOUT Bolton have already begun to plan for next season by signing youngsters Hayden White and Conor Wilkinson from Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall respectively. 17-year-old White, a winger-turned-defender, is highly-rated having reportedly been scouted by Tottenham, Wigan, West Brom and Manchester United.

Obviously the first stage of reducing the wage bill.

Never ever in this wide world. He's also been seen at Wigan.

Noooooooooo!!! Please God, no!! Let this just be some kinda freak coincidence. How can I possibly wish him all the best if he takes charge of that shower? And besides, you just KNOW he'd make a proper go of it. Arrest their glorious (not to mention hilarious) slide towards oblivion and guarantee they beat us to the Prem!

I hope so to boys It can't happen but the odds are long on both of them being there as a coincidence but surely they would meet outside this city if they were negotiating knowing they would have been spotted but coincidence or not they were both there last night!!!!!!

hey Brinsworth your absolutely cock on I have just read it and it just goes to show that how many times over the years have we all sat there and wondered why certain players weren't coming off the bench or in the team great spot have a read everyone

I happened to clock this page on the NewsNow site yesterday but resisted the urge to 'spout dribble' all over it. As brinsworthowl says, it does explain a lot but while it also gives us a sneaky glimpse at 'Undisclosed World' I reckon it leaves much to be concerned about. Should we applaud those running our club for craftily avoiding the need to pay up on an agreement? We know finances are tight but shouldn't a promising young striker be considered as a valuable asset and one to be nurtured? And wouldn't he be 'worth' more if he'd played a full season and scored goals rather than be restricted to less than half a season plus a handful of late appearances as sub because they 'don't count'? And do 'loan-outs' count? Is that why we were apparently willing to farm him out to League1 sides (only class as half-appearances) and is that why the player himself stated his intention to stay and fight for his place (not to mention his own 10% cut)? Hmm, it all gets a bit murky. The article suggests Carlisle missed out on this particular 'set time' payment but doesn't mention next year. So are we to expect more of the same come 2013/14? It says they collected an (undisclosed) figure because we retained our Championship status, I'd imagine that figure would've been even greater had we made the play-offs or achieved promotion. You don't suppose...? Nah! But it does seem like (penny-pinching) a policy that clearly affects team selection and also interferes with the development, not to mention confidence and attitude, of a young player with bags of potential and who was presumably signed as an investment for the future.
