Spurr Agrees New Owls Deal

Spurr Agrees New Owls Deal

Young Wednesday defender Tommy Spurr has put pen to paper to agree a new deal which will see him stay at Hillsborough until 2009.

The 19-year-old's deal at S6 expired in the summer, and his impressive performances this season have earnt him high praise from Owls boss Brian Laws and the Hillsborough faithful.

Spurr told Wednesday World: 'I'm delighted to have been offered a new contract. I want to play for Sheffield Wednesday and I'm delighted to have been recognised for how I've been playing. I just want to stay here and play for the first team.'

And boss Brian Laws said: 'He's a good lad, willing to learn; he has been doing very well and he deserves this deal. This is only the start of his future.'

Spurr has been filling in at left-back, despite his natural position being in the centre, with John Hills sidelined through injury - but he could well have made the number three position his own after helping the Owls up to four points from the Championship play-off positions.

The Leeds-born youngster has come through the Wednesday youth ranks and was given his full debut by Paul Sturrock in the Owls 1-0 home defeat to Luton back in August before going on to register a further 15 appearances for the club.

We need him in the squad, as Coughlan is going back to Plymouth in Janurary. My local shopkeeper is originally from Plymouth, and knew Graham in his Plymouth days, and bumped into him at Sheffield Childrens hospital when the players were on their annual visit. Coughlan said he and Brian Laws had not hit it off, and The Owls have already agreed a deal with Plymouth in Janurary

Well Spurr is not great! Him and Lunt were the weakest players last Sat, would be better keeping Coughlan!

I think the deal is done already for Coughlan. Spurr is a temporary Full back though, he is a better centre half, we need a new left back, as Hills and Gilbert are not good enough
