Spurr-ed On At Left Back

Spurr-ed On At Left Back

Wednesday fans could be set to see Tommy Spurr stick to his guns at left-back instead of reverting back to his more natural centre-back position, according to the highly-rated youngster.

Spurr came through the Owls youth ranks as a centre-back - but since his first inclusion in the first team this season has been used to fill in at left-back - a role he is becoming more accustomed to of late.

'I`m feeling a bit more comfortable at left back than I used to do,' he told the Sheffield Star.

'I feel that I'm doing all right there, and I`ve felt more involved going forward as well; we've worked on crosses and on going forward.

'Hopefully it will all come together and I`ll keep playing well. I'm pleased with the way things have gone for me this season. I`d like to kick on from here.'

The 19-year-old has been found out on a few occasions this term against the divisions more 'tricky' players, but Owls boss Brian Laws has already recognised his potential and has also called for Spurr to be called-up to the England under-21 set-up since his arrival at the club.

Spurr has made 26 league starts for the club after making his debut in the home clash with Luton Town in August - and he will be hoping to get one over on his hometown club as he looks set to be a part of the Owls side that travels to Leeds on Saturday.

Well i hope you don't come up against Craig Fagan again Tommy. He destroyed you away at Hull earlier in season, and then away at derby he came on as sub, and put himself on you straight away, and within a few seconds you had pulled him down on the edge of the box, and they scored the winning goal from the free kick

Fair play but he's only young so give the lad a chance! One a few with a bright future at Hillsborough and it will take him time to improve.
