Laws Named Owls Boss

Laws Named Owls Boss

Wednesday have announced that former Scunthorpe United boss Brian Laws is to become the new Owls boss following the sacking of Paul Sturrock over two weeks ago.

The news ends weeks of speculation over the appointement and sees Laws sign a deal until the end of the 2008/08 season along with his assistant Russ Wilcos who also arrives from Glanford Park.

Laws told the official SWFC site: "I'm very excited at the prospect of coming to Sheffield Wednesday. It's a huge club with huge tradition. The club couldn't have asked for a more hungry manager than myself. I'm very much up for this job, believe that I'm ready for it and that I have the necessary qualities to drive it forward."

He continued: "The most important thing is that we all pull together. We have to be in the same boat, grab a oar and start pulling as hard as we can to get the club where it should be, trying to get into the Premiership as soon as we can."

The former Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough player spent ten years at Scunthorpe - guiding them to two promotions and to third in League One this season.

There we go then. Can't say I'm overly pleased but we have to give him time now...

shame when a new man comes in and it isn't a name to inspire. Mind you we have John Gregory come to Villa, we were all a bit disappointed but he shot us up the league and into Europe!

Scunthorpe have certianly been impressive this season but it's a bit worrying that it's taken him 10 years to get them to where they are - Wednesday fans won't wait that long! I suppose he knows the lower leagues well though, so can hopefully bring a couple of quality players in on a relatively low budget.

I hope McAuley retains atleast some input, it's no coincidence that every team he's managed for us this season is more or less unbeaten

McAuley deserves a pat on the back for his achievements over the past couple of weeks. We all need to get behind Brian Laws now and give him our support. The next few fixtures are quite tough so it will be interesting to see how we perform.
